Access to office development, Trumpington - this needs to be kept clear (cones to stop people driving through are not enough)

This is the line of the former Cambridge-Bedford railway - odd that the path just peters out here.

I only realised the other day that this route across Trumpington Meadows Country Park is the line of the former Bedford-Cambridge railway.

There was a bridge here on the Cambridge-Bedford railway - now severed by the M11 in any case.

Resurfaced and marked up for repainting.

This pothole has been filled, the ones around the corner on West Road have been marked up but left for later. Joined-up thinking?

I think there's a camera up there to monitor use of the bridge.

Car stopped in the junction to use the phone, as far as I could tell....

This pothole never really goes away (see #20469, #80314, #107251) but it's particularly bad at the moment, and the county is ignoring requests for it to be fixed.

The Coton M11 bridge has finally reopened, and the Coton Path seems to have been rebuilt the whole way from the bridge to Coton.

Student housing, I think, with lots of bikes needing secure parking (and an unused ringbolt)

Student housing, I think, with lots of bikes locked to the fence.

Plaque on the 'CTC bench' - The Cyclists Touring Club Cambridge have met here since 11 May 1921 - just a couple of weeks until their centenary !

Not sure why I'd go to the left to get to Addenbrooke's Hospital when there's a decent direct route just to the right.

Two days after an Anglia TV report including Camcycle's Roxanne de Beaux, the precise two potholes featured have been fixed - but none of the others on West Road or the one marked up just around the corner on Grange Road, of course...

Very tight chicane by a walkway between buildings - a necessary measure with these desire and sight lines.

Cavendish Laboratory

It doesn’t look like there’s any intention to have a cycle route through here.

No sign of the no entry and cyclists dismount signs 😎 See #21552. In fact they were removed by 2011, see #28078 and #17473.

Cycle parking at Cambridge's first Passivhaus student accommodation (graduate rooms for King's College)

Pothole inspection on Grange Road - how long will it be before the hole gets fixed? And why can't this be done by a small electric vehicle?

No traffic lights, no problem.

Advisory cycle lanes and double yellow lines at the south end of Histon Road

Advisory cycle lanes at the south end of Histon Road - but I do quite like the cycle symbols on the outside of the bus stop.

Histon Road cycleways built to the minimum width, and with no protection from close passing motor traffic. A short section of single-yellow will allow motor vehicles to park in this cycle lane.

An upstand high enough to allow a bike to be parked, at a turn into a side road, see #167163

The junction of Histon Road with Canterbury Street (and other side streets) has been designed with an upstand of 25mm, enough to throw a rider off their bike unless they turn sharply.

Cycle stands at the Aura Building, Great Kneighton/Clay Farm

This area is Cambridge's Tesla Valley, with lots of charging points for electric cars, and also lots of bike stands, of which these were the most stylish.

Access to Clare & Peterhouse sports grounds - people come this way to walk north and south, but there could also be a link east to the busway.

Ditton Meadows ramp and bridge.

Jetty surface looks good.

Bikes among these items fished out of the river. The spokes in that wheel have all rotted away but the wheel is still connected to the forks by the axle. The steel in the handlebars has also rotted away leaving only the chrome skin in pl ... [more]

Histon Road

Closed for motor vehicles - but Cambridgeshire highways department can't understand the distinction.

It seems that the owner of one of the bars here still thinks he has the right to leave a car on the footway.

Will the Coton Path bridge over the M11 ever reopen? It's been over six months...

Disused wheelbenders - there's now secure single and two-tier parking inside the fence.

More potholes on West Road (now a bus route) - this one is visible on the satellite image!

This is not a repair. The buses will have that tarmac out in no time, and the pothole to the right has not been touched.

New improved arrangement at the east end of Downing Street, with the awkward island and bollard removed and the traffic light phases changed - see also the advanced green light for cyclists.
