There isn't a good place to move from carriageway to the wide section of shared-use path in order to bypass vehicle queues for the lights and reach the cycle advance box (though there should be space on carriageway between the two lanes of … [more]

Dropped kerb to move from shared-use path to cycle advance box doesn't make it easy to get towards the far side of the box if turning right towards Fulbourn.

'Smart Junction' trial sensor at the top, bike sensor immediately above traffic lights, low-level bike repeater lights below main lights.

'Smart Junction' trial sensor at the top, bike sensor immediately above traffic lights, low-level bike repeater below main lights.

Not on a signed cycle route (that's Love Lane nearby), but shown on the council cycle map. Multiple entrances to chipshop premises on the right. Very common to see bikes locked to the chicane, sometimes obstructing it, because there's no … [more]

Disgraceful bit of highway engineering, with the lorry forced by the island into the end of the on-road cycle lane. Nothing here to help southbound cycles reaching the end of the off-road path.

Crossing Yarrow Road on the way to Fulbourn.

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.

Cyclists must give way to rejoin the road they were on before they joined this cycleway.

Nothing here to warn drivers of the cycleway merging onto the road just beyond that big sign.

Cycle parking and car storage area, next to wide cycleway.

New shared use cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width measured here: 4.0m

Semi segregated cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width: 1.9m, or 2m if the kerbs are included.

Informal crossing of Fulbourn Road from the shared-use cycleway to the Peterhouse Technology Park.

A dead-end footway. Presumably this was intended as a connection with Cherry Hinton Recreation ground at the time this housing estate was built - but for some reason the link was never opened.

Official sign suggesting bikes should be attached to these railings adjacent to the car storage area. Workable, but pretty shabby offering here by Cambridge City Council. Sign lectures: WARNING Please do not fix bikes this side which … [more]

Nice looking cycleway here - but follow it and it gives up near the junction ahead. Also that sign on the left has the transport modes the wrong way round (but at least it is off the path).

Cycle route signage towards Fulbourn.

Typical abandoned bike - several broken aspects to it such as missing handlebar grips partially detached rack and poor brakes, but still basically functional.

Estimating the width of this shared use cycleway using the iPhone measure app. Width shown is 2.83m but add about 76cm for the manhole cover. Width of shared use cycleway: 3.5m

Grim 'No ball games sign' extinghuishes life and fun creating a dead environment, and at the same time loads of space is given over to a car park.

Cycleway in Cherry Hinton.

Segregated cycleway – the cycle way side is so overgrown (see #49969) and blocked (#49966) behind the camera that I expect most use the pedestrian side.

Lots of clutter – controlling and blocking access.

Segregated cycleway

Annoying obstruction on the access to this cycle path. Compare with the same scene 10 years ago: #7913. The street light has moved to the middle - which could facilitate removal of the concrete bollard with the pram arms. The houses have … [more]

The cycle lanes in Cherry Hinton are very poor. Narrow, close to parked cars and systematically overrun at the mini roundabouts as here. These are not an asset, they should be removed and the road environment re-modelled in the centre to … [more]
