No cycling chicane Grantham I expect the harshness of this chicane is more of an inconvenience to pedestrians than the occasional annoying cyclist would be if it were gone. A very poor obstruction.

Hi hi @waitrose - We’ve made a few trips to your #Colchester store to collect for customers. See pics attached though, a useful route to and from the carpark/entrance, but is there any chance you could remove the barriers, and widen the a ... [more]

Salford Bridges over Irwell . Barriers a little too close together on both sides of bridge.

Barrier chicane at the northern end of the NCN3 / NCN33 path between Bawdrip and Cossington. The gap between the barriers is 1m, and may be difficult for some types of cycle to navigate.

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. These measurements (width 104cm, radius 155cm, entry/exit width 82cm) are not enough for someone to get through comfortably or easily on a cycle. Even on a lightweight, unladen, unadorned de ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. The width of the tarmac is just 97cm. This is uncomfortably narrow for many potential users pass through, and the angle is too tight - there's no provision for turning circles. (LTN 1/20 Cyc ... [more]

These barriers are clearly meant to block cycle access to Chivers Way and Vision Park, although the companies there have enough cycle parking.

NCN7 and NCN75 on Linthaugh Road. This residential dual carriageway is traffic calmed with chicanes, but otherwise has nothing to make cycling safer.

Stupid barriers on the A1307 cycleway Fixed in #181853.

No Cycling on this section of path - but there's a good alternative just to the west via Wadnall Way.

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

Cycling people: These barriers and ‘cyclists dismount’ signs have appeared in the last few weeks on a route in Basildon (Ballard’s Walk). The barriers are quite widely spaced, and I can see their purpose. But planning to engage my loc ... [more]

Freshly installed (March 2021) dropped kerb linking the new shared path towards the Sharphill Development unfortunately gaining a very obstructive barrier :(

The chicane has been lengthened making it much more pleasant for cycling 🤗 because it does not require a sharp turn. I suppose it also easier for motorcycles too 🤭. This is a great improvement over previously, see #49119.

Cargo bike finally met its nemesis on @MertonCycling patch. This at the end of an alleyway half a mile long, no "no cycling" signage, and it's too narrow to turn an 8'6 bike around. Reversing up on foot it is 😡 https://t.co/fOgKLWAQqO ... [more]

What bright spark thought it would be remotely sensible to force cyclists to perform a tight swerve on a narrow tow-path, inches away from the edge of the canal.
