I'm thrilled to see that a dropped kerb has appeared here, making this shared-use path useable at last.

This is the first opportunity after the roundabout in the distance for cyclists to get on to the shared-use path.

I have no idea what the purpose of these shelters is, not even motorbikes use them, and I'm surprised they're still there.

Gate blocking footpath in Comberton

Footpath in Comberton, recently cleared and seemingly ideal for cycling - except for the gate closing its southern end.

See clip at http://youtu.be/nOOCXIycdaA Rather than having a little patience, the driver of this minibus full of schoolkids decides to pull out at a blind bend, then has to rush back in (close to me) as traffic comes from the other direc ... [more]

No cycle parking at the Meridian School, Comberton (but a nice cargo bike there on Saturday morning)

Cut-through in Comberton

Dropped kerbs (rather than barriers) would make these far more useful as cycle routes.

Cut-throughs in Comberton - these could easily be improved for cycling.

Cut-through in Comberton - a dropped kerb would open this up as a cycle route towards the Village College.

Not very cycleable route to Comberton Village College

Not very cycleable route to Comberton Village College

A long way round (theoretically) on the shared-use path to Comberton Village College - cycle to the east end of the site, cross the road then return to the west.

Covered parking at Comberton Library (on the Village College site) - on a Saturday morning

See clip at http://youtu.be/KV_E__c-Eg4 Another reason to avoid shared paths. The driver clearly can't see anything coming along the path. Hate to think what would happened if I'd been 20 yards further on than I was.

See clip at http://youtu.be/vXk95IRhjos Coming into Comberton there's a pony and trap going the other way. Friendly smiles and waves all round! Civilised transport compared to those rushing (but not fast) polluting transport options.

See clip at http://youtu.be/P5qssLv91Oo This car joins from the road at the left of the roundabout. As I'm making my way between the two pinch points I hear them accelerating very hard despite there being no space to pass (see http://www ... [more]

Hundreds of cars at Comberton College (including in all the bus bays) for a rock-choir Guinness Record attempt (and one bike).

Hundreds of cars at Comberton College for a rock-choir Guinness Record attempt and one bike (Katy's!).

See clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry-Tx1XFp5k This wasn't a close pass, it was all legal and safe, just completely boneheaded. As the clip starts parked cars and oncoming traffic are visible. So why pass only to stop? Whilst ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/MYuu-q8HM80 Roadsigns, parked cars, and pedestrians (for both our safety!). Highway Code 61. Use cycle routes, advanced stop lines, cycle boxes and toucan crossings UNLESS at the time it is UNSAFE to do so ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/iSIjWxINzUo A driver shows how to do it. I'm in primary as I get many close passes at speed here. I hear the car coming form behind. Then I hear them starting to slow down. I pull into the secondary position a ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/7k8zysaHaW4 This permissive bridleway is fantastic! Clearly added in the past couple of years (Google Streetview didn't have it as at June 2012) by a local landowner, possibly the nearby farm (UPDATE below). I ... [more]

Minibus Parking painted out and replaced with cycle parking - at last, some decent provision at Comberton Village College!

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4Q0Yb0MToA This road is rapidly becoming a hot spot for me. It's a narrow, dead straight, two-lane, unclassified road. Because it is so straight, cars will approach 60mph despite the brow and ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eFQTIrZgeY I often note bad practice on this road, so I thought it appropriate to show, and thank, this driver for their good road behaviour. As I'm riding up, the road ahead is not entirel ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4DZT2U1thI This pinch point is always interesting. I often pull out quite early to show myself to oncoming cars. I'm often doing 25mph+ here (in a 30mph limit) so should really, really been se ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la1IsQi-9bM I've learnt to avoid this section of road within a metre or so of the verge as it's very rough and leads to steering issues. This puts me in the middle of the road. Cars just ass ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q07RXnfg-Dg This driver utterly terrified me. It left me very shaky and worried for my life. I went back to an incident about 18 months ago (http://radwagon.blogspot.com/2009/12/cycling-safety- ... [more]

Cycleable cut-through in Comberton

Drop-kerb badly needed here - how else are Cambridge-bound cyclists supposed to get on to the shared-use path? Simon: a dropped kerb is present twelve years later in 2021, see: #162019
