[Image taken 6.10.21] Aldwark, junction with St Andrewgate, York. The gap on the right nearly meets the minimum standard of 150cm. The others don't. This is a critical piece of the permeable infra around York. In September 2021, I did an on ... [more]

[Image taken 6.10.21] Navigation Road, York, entrance to Hungate. Just four days earlier and this visitor would not have been able roll/stroll through that gap: everyone was herded into the 186cm to the right. Measurements here: #174633. Co ... [more]

A closer look at the cycle crossing waiting area on Abbbotsinch Road.

A road closure in Barloch Street that does not permit through cycling.

Nonsense bollards.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]
