Cargo bikes galore for the school run Cambridge style.

These chilli style cycle racks add a little cheer to a dreary retail park.

Car storage area near a sofa store.

Covered cycle parking for thirty bikes outside a sofa store on the retail park.

Location of a collision between a bus (not this one) and a child cyclist. ... [more]

Bins in the bike racks.

Still there see ... #102763

Unofficial looking 20mph sign in Devonshire Road.

Cyclists should dismount here, to reach the stands visible in the background - obviously, because that's better than car drivers having to pay attention.

Bike shop, South Girton - I'll try to get a daytime photo, but it's better than none at all!

The whole of Station Road is a disaster for cycling - but for some reason they've resurfaced the Tenison Road junction.

End rack damage in Free School Lane. Reported at: Response received 17 Apr 2019, 11:43 "We are pleased to confirm that work has been ordered to address this issue which sho ... [more]

An unofficial looking sign has recently appeared that reads 20mph please slow down. Possibly related to #104097?

I've pretty much given up reporting potholes like these, but maybe I'll try again.

Buses often wait here, impeding the Ridgeway cycle crossing - but this bus has stopped well clear, in fact it had to reverse to get moving again.

The Ridgeway crossing Turing Way, Eddington

Signs in place well before the junction can open.

Squiggle through a construction site

All signed up and nowhere to go (yet)

Bunker's Hill and crossing of the Huntingdon Road towards Girton

People are reluctant to cross Girton Road here to reach the crossing of the Huntingdon Road, because of fast cars turning into Girton Road.

Crossing without lights, not easy for cargo bikes, close to Thornton Road

Apparently a crossing here would make the right-turn lane too short so motor traffic into Cambridge would be held up. Oh dear what a shame that would be.

Cyclists are meant to join the carriageway here, just where Huntingdon Road narrows and cars cut into the cycle lane.

The nearest crossing to the Eddington Avenue junction.

Link from Huntingdon Road to Madingley Road, Cambridge

No motor vehicles as a rule - but there's still a reminder to look out for cyclists and joggers

Footpath and cycle route

Diversion via footpath (perfectly fine for cycling)

The cycleway has at last been resurfaced - let's hope it lasts a few years before the roots start to lift and crack it again.

Surprisingly this delivery driver chose to stop jutting out into the carriageway rather than blocking the cycleway.

One of the bikes I turned upside down in September last year is still there at the end of March, see #102763

Gaffer tape used to repair bollard found discarded at #106943.

Route signage to Cambridge North.

Vehicle parked overhanging the cycle parking buildout (which has lost its protective bollard) - making it harder for us to wheel our bikes in and out of the house.

Bollard damaged and lying in a nearby bush. Reported at: Reference: 00311822 Update: a week later I notice it had been repaired with gaffer tape, see #107112. But also on ... [more]

Two's company Trumpington Street, Cambridge

A child's bike-sized rack among the cycle parking in this play area.

Saturday afternoon and used Mobikes cluster around the Grand Arcade entrance.

Cambridge North signed.

Good use of space at King's College School - though I'd have put the cycle stands in at a slight angle.

The junction has been resurfaced and repainted and cycle lights have been added at the crossing over Chaucer Road - it doesn't really change anything for cyclists on NCN route 11, though.

Contraflow cycle lane to Cambridge Biomedical Campus - on the 'wrong' side of the normal lane with the traffic flow.

Imaginative use of space at Cambridge Biomedical Campus - but access (back right) is a bit tricky.

Need for cycle parking on this street.

Workstand at the New Museums Site

Five months after I upturned that Raleigh bike it's still there, see #102763.

Early work on the Chisholm Trail.

Horrible racks - difficult to get the bikes in and provide no secure anchor point. Awful.

Wheelbenders in a corner of a development.

Nice graphic but rubbish cycle parking just off Cherry Hinton Road. Difficult to secure the bike to the racks, and little support for the bike - risk of wheel bending. Putting them by the bins adds insult to injury! Very poor effort indeed ... [more]

Bikes and bins: Cycle parking in residential area. It ought to be possible to make a much better job of this. Basic "Sheffield Stands" like these are much better than the wheel benders of old, but bikes don't lean to them very well wi ... [more]

No motor vehicles - much better for cycling now (compare #4366 and #4362) the chicanes are absent, but violation by mopeds mean residents are asking for physical measures.

Yarrow Road

Four metre wide cycleway alongside Yarrow Road. Cyclists still have to give way at the side-roads, but at least there's not many of them along here.

City council staff were working here for a couple of days to create a narrower cycle access from Riverside to Tesco, and create more space for pedestrians. While they have money to do this, the county council is spending virtually nothing o ... [more]

'This cycle rack is to be deliberately left empty' ?

The county council doesn't have the money to fix this broken-up road, but the city council clearly has money for a bit of beautification. Only in disfunctional Britain!

Maybe somebody has noticed that having an unprotected right turn on NCN route 11 right before a roundabout is very dangerous.

Ten spaces in front of the new Royal Papworth Hospital!

New white lines and safety warning after a cyclist was killed by a guided bus near here.

Sign for the Bike Station, although (on a Sunday morning) it's not clear where it actually is.

Having rebuilt the first half of the path to Chaucer Road, the contractors are now working on the other half.

I've more or less given up reporting potholes in Cambridge, but this one is bad, with loose stones being thrown around. In addition, if a driver knocked someone down on the zebra crossing they'd get away with it, as any competent lawyer wou ... [more]

After a couple of years of nagging this dreadful stretch of an important cycle route has been resurfaced. But it feels like a hollow victory as the whole of Cambridge now seems to be one conjoined pothole.

Chisholm Trail construction site.

Nicely placed sharrow to get contra-flow cyclists riding well away from car doors. Compare #70403.
