Tarvin in Cheshire . The local landowners horse owners are blatenly blocking and intimidating path users with: dumping of manure, string and a horse box. The rest of the path will become overgrown through lack of use. No wonder NHS is overw ... [more]

Tarvin fotpath network is very unfriendly and definitely NOT smooth. United Utilities strap line "making life flow smoothly" does not apply here. The path around the UU treatment works is very badly maintained. Wouldn't take much to make it ... [more]

Cycle route sign, Chester

The shared-use route into Chester suddenly stops here without warning.

They're very keen on cars not parking on the verges (and cycleways) in Chester.

The start of a cycle route parallel to the B5130 into Chester - and surely the sign has been turned around?

Cycle parking, for some reason, at the start of a cycle route parallel to the B5130 into Chester - and surely the sign to the right has been turned around?

It would be better to have a raised cushion across the side-road rather than the oh-so-predictable Cyclsists Dismount signs.

The shared-use path south from Chester ends heer (with a van parked on it).

Literally just 100 metres of cycleway here beside the A41 would provide a safe link from the canalside NCN route 45 to the lanes to Saighton and Farndon.

NCN route 45 continuing east from Waverton, where the good surface seems to end.

There were a huge number of schoolchildren heading home on the towpath (NCN route 45) here.

One of the pedestrians approaching on the towpath (NCN route 45) has a parrot on each shoulder.

NCN route 45 follows the towpath into Chester

NCN route 45 follows the tunnel-like towpath to the right, although it's possible to cross the road too.

Road closed in one direction except to cyclists

The towpath looks a bit like a dead-end but NCN route 45 does go that way. I went up the ramp and over the road.

New footbridge across the canal by Waitrose and the Shot Tower, Chester - there's a lift there but it wasn't working.

Level access to the canal towpath and NCN route 45 in Chester

Steps to the towpath in Chester - luckily the sign in the mid-distance suggests a level route, as long as I'm happy to tackle a roundabout and a short stretch of the A51.

Anti-cyclist signage in Chester. A Cyclists Dismount sign would be more logically correct, anyway.

No Entry Except Cycles sign in Chester

A one-way dead end? Lots of cars unable to legally escape? I wish...

Shared-use crossing of the Chester ring road

Unusual - a cycle lane that ought to lead in to an ASL but doesn't.

Thoughtless road closure without dropped kerbs for cyclists - plenty of space for some bike stands too.

Not having been here before, I've no idea where these various coloured cycle routes go!
