NCN27 signage offering a mountain bike option to Knowle ¾

NCN27 Braunton

A path being widened at Whitemoss Roundabout.

Footbridges across Crosshouse Road (foreground) and Mallard Crescent (background). Plus a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

There is no justification at all for a Cyclists Dismount sign here - but it's only National Cycle Network route 1, why would anyone care?

Cycleway alongside the Ely Southern Bypass connects here with the National Cycle Network route 11. Cyclists Dismount does not mean No Cycling and so why is it there? Is it to appease other users? See #106639. Some drone footage of the ... [more]

The access to the cycleway is a bit odd, we've ridden along a few hundred yards of grass along the top of an embankment to this point, there's no path up to it from the asphalt road below. Bollards guard the entrance (usually there to stop ... [more]

I'm not normally one for ragging on my colleagues but this shiny new car park at Gloucester station is an active travel crime scene. True @bollocksinfra https://t.co/c1octJbVNO

Shared use track to the southern portal of the A61 underpass from Foxwood Way...lots of leaf litter around making the surface a little slippery

Northern portal of the A61 underpass

@magnatom @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside @GoBikeGlasgow We took this photo & plan to write to council. Why not 'please take care through roadworks and show respect to workers & fellow road users'? Feel free to use photo if you like. https://t.co/ ... [more]

A quite unnecessary sign!

The shared use path ends before it reaches Lister Road, so doesn't really go anywhere. There is no provision for westbound cyclists here, and eastbound cyclists will have already negotiated a busy roundabout. "End of Cycle Route"/"Cyclist ... [more]

"End of Cycle Route"/"Cyclists Dismount" sign on new shared use path, Harrow Way Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom) There is no provision for westbound cyclists here, and eastbound cyclists will have already negotiated ... [more]

"End of Cycle Route"/"Cyclists Dismount" sign on Lister Road Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom)

End of Cycle Route/Cyclists Dismount sign - for some reason, cycling to the dropped kerb is not allowed Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom)

End of Cycle Route/Cyclists Dismount sign on Lister Road Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom) If only the shared use path connected with the cycle track on Wella Road...

End of Cycle Route/Cyclists Dismount sign Location: , Basingstoke (England, United Kingdom) The council had recently started using "Cyclists rejoin carriageway" signs, but clearly ran out and went back to meaningless end of ... [more]

Cycle parking at the top of the steep bit of the hill, saves having to pedal back up if the bike is already at the top. But some proper stands at the shopping centre entrance would be better.

@Warwickshire_CC @Warwick_DC who is responsible for this @bollocksinfra on Sydenham Drive, Leam? Are cyclists really supposed to dismount, walk 3m across the footpath junction, and then remount? Confusing and pointless. https://t.co/uMC0StC ... [more]

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal from the main towpath. I assume the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign up ahead means that cycling is allowed along this path.

'Cyclists Dismount' for going under the bridge with poor sightlines at Camelon Road. Why not just 'go slowly'?

'Cyclists Dismount' for going under the bridge with poor sightlines at Camelon Road. Why not just 'go slowly'?

A poorly filled trench across the shared-use footway/cycleway alongside the A9, and a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the pedestrian crossing. The shared footway continues (for a short distance) beyond the crossing.

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park. What are dismounted cyclists to do when there's no footway on the road ahead?

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park.

A route sign on the Union Canal, with four directions indicated: Union Canal eastbound (via Falkirk Tunnel) Union Canal westbound (Falkirk Wheel) Falkirk High station Dirt path to Slamannan Road (part of the HArTT cycle route, #103474) ... [more]

On the left a new ramp up to a car park (see #101153), and on the right the path connecting to the Union Canal.

A new ramp up to a new car park and cycle parking (see #101148), linked to Falkirk High station. The gap in the railing halfway up is for a dirt path leading to Slamannan Road.

New cycle parking in a new car park for Falkirk High station. But 'Cyclists Dismount' on the ramp down to the Union Canal. See also #101153.

A "Cyclists Dismount" sign for a flight of steps. It may be better to direct cyclists via the road crossing (see #101513).

Just another Cyclists Dismount sign, when what is needed is an indication that the cycle route switches to the other side of the road here.

Just another Cyclists Dismount sign, when what is needed is an indication that the cycle route switches to the other side of the road here.

Unnecessary Cylists Dismount sign at Skidby Mill

A split toucan crossing across Townhead Avenue at Eurocentral. I don't know which direction the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign applies to. The kid on the bike took no notice of it.

Barriers AND Cyclists Dismount signs to cross the entry to the Rutland Water Garden Centre

This sign has evolved to grow up through the dense foliage and flower to reveal it's vital message: Cyclists Dismount to warn of the unmarked crossing of an industrial road.

Cycleway alongside the A5

Behold! The most inexplicable Cyclists Dismount sign yet. The road is only narrowed here so someone can park their Mercedes. https://t.co/wELl3Up8tf

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at a useful footbridge over the M80 motorway.

Nine months after opening the new Forth Motorists' Bridge, are there any plans to introduce a functional cycle route over the Forth? @scotgov @HumzaYousaf @forthroadbridge @SpokesLothian @POPScotland https://t.co/pEbKXj6kVq

Evil Cyclists Dismount sign during bridge work at Crouch Hill station (for electrification of the Goblin line, now thankfully coming to an end).

A clumsy section of cycle route at Preston Place heading towards Govanhill Park, with a dropped kerb that is vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

A kerb on the approach to the pedestrian crossing across Cathcart Road. The cycle route continues across the other side of the road.

The old 'Cyclists Dismount' sign has been joined by a shared use sign. Why doesn't the latter say "Be polite please"?

Filey, route across a bridge over Ravine Road. Ambiguous signage suggests this is a cycle route between the country park and town centre, but suggests (not requires) a dismount.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at a pedestrian crossing? Why hasn't a toucan crossing been installed here?

A new addition to my commute for the next 2 months. (#glasgow Aikenhead Road) https://t.co/2MQixMRoZZ

West City Way, Glasgow. Flagship cycling infrastructure. Dismount and use pavement. Pathetic. https://t.co/wU0gexsvJZ [See also #93831]

Why ride when you can push? #CyclistsDismount #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/6S7JLXSsN1

Let academic brainstorming by West Cambridge Lake not be disturbed by cyclists.

Ambiguous signage: the roundal suggests 'No cycling' but the text 'Cyclists please dismount' is a request. Based on #93386 I reckon this was designed as a cycle route, and so the signage should be along the lines of 'Cyclists give way to ... [more]

What starts off like a positive permission to cycle ends up more like an ultimatum!

NCN75 goes right through Gourock Station, hence the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

NCN route 22 gets a bit lost at Portsmouth international ferry terminal - there is an unsigned on-road route around the one-way system to the left.

A lot of money was spent completely rebuilding Dalmarnock station, and yet the cycle parking has been placed far too close to a wall in what looks like quite a dodgy corner. All the barriers around the Dalmarnock Road/Clyde Gateway junct ... [more]

The path under the Clyde Bridge floods when the River Clyde is in spate. The pedestrian crossing referred to also requires crossing Airbles Road and the road into Strathclyde Park, both at uncontrolled crossings, since there is no pedestria ... [more]

Another footbridge across a sliproad, another 'Cyclists Dismount' sign.

Although there has been nothing to indicate that cycling is allowed on this path, the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign implies that it is allowed. The alternative is the quasi-motorway A723.

The Chapel St crossing has a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, even though it has toucan crossing like most of the other crossings. Not much thought has gone into aligning this junction for walking and cycling.

One of the better uses of "Cyclists Dismount" to get people into the pub :-)

Routes NCN 69 and 700 crossing Central Drive via a raised zebra crossing with Cyclists Dismount signs.

Cyclists asked to dismount on the boardwalk next to the River Clyde.

Time limited Cyclists Dismount sign in Cheapside, along with damaged Pedestrian Zone signage, and some cycle parking.

Cyclists Dismount 10am-5pm, and at other times? No Entry applies all the time. Maybe not the intention.

In @ChichesterDC today. Not loving this completely lethal cycle "infrastructure". Worse than nothing https://t.co/102m1tGfvj

A random "Cyclists Dismount" sign on car park access road, approaching NCN 7 & 75 on Pacific Drive.

A Cyclists Dismount sign that really shouldn't be needed for anyone who has successfully cycled down the previous flight of steps (see #86773).

Apparently cyclists can't be trusted to cycle down this ramp without something untoward happening. Also, unnecessary pole clutter.

NCN 7 leaves the Esplanade for a path across Low Green, only to return to the Esplanade further along.

Monkton Combe which seems to be dominated by a private school. The cycle route to the left is down a very steep narrow path through the school grounds.

Yet another unnecessary Cyclists Dismount sign - the contraflow cycle lane ends and there's a shared-use sign hidden under the tree ahead before cyclists join the road beyond.

Yet another annoying Cyclists Dismount sign. Why not some positive guidance instead?

Shared use for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists

Bit of graffiti on this Cyclists Dismount sign in Bath.

Cyclists Dismount sign - A route sign for Warrington Strategic Route 3 towards Birchwood would be more helful.

01_2016_051 Cycle route alongside the A27, near Chichester, January 2016 [I think he missed the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the foot of the ramp to the footbridge]

01_2016_037 Cycle route alongside the A27, near Chichester, January 2016 [A 'Cyclists Dismount' section]

A very narrow bridge, and a signed requesting cyclists walk. Not much chance of getting past someone with a bike, walking or not.

Is this the most useless piece of cycle infra in Islington? Absolutely no reason to spend money on a bypass of nowt. https://t.co/iyk0V3v70R

The year-long closure of Queen's Drive for water tunnel works includes a 'Cyclists Please Dismount' sign. On the positive side, through traffic on Victoria Road has been cut substantially!

Helpful sign warning of roadworks

NCN route 1 at the Thames Barrier - with pointless Cyclists Dismount sign.

The usual knee-jerk British contractor's response - totally unnecessary.

Cyclists Dismount sign on the footbridge, Wadebridge - the only alternative to the road bridge. What shame they didn't build it wide enough!

Third of three cycle rental outlets by the Wadebridge end of the Camel Trail to Padstow

Cycle route under the pier

Closed road alongside the railway viaduct at the University of Manchester - what a shame it's closed to cycling

On the one hand it's good that NCN routes 1 and 65 are using service roads beside the main road into Hull (OpenCycleMap is out of date). On the other hand, the Cyclists Dismount sign is nonsense, as usual - it should say Cyclists Rejoin Car ... [more]

This sign (and thousands of others across Britain) should not read Cyclists Dismount. It should read Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway (and continue as normal road users).

Bridge work being done to one side of footbridge, with other side kept clear for pedestrians.

Cycle parking at Greenfaulds station, right next to the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's routes 1e and 1f.

The ramp between the footbridge and forecourt at Cumbernauld station. This forms part of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1, although there are 'Cyclists Dismount' signs (see #80517 and #67691).

Sign for routes 1e and 1f pointing the wrong way. Signs for route 1 are only visible to those already on this route and not to those arriving on routes 1e and 1f. Route 1 is routed via the ramp between the bridge and Cumbernauld station, ... [more]

Why should Cyclists Dismount on this short link? Just being considerate to pedestrians should be fine.

The usual nonsense - this should read 'Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway and Continue as Normal'. There's no need whatsoever to dismount, especially as there's a shared-use footway past the pub.

Steps on route 3.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign that gives no justification. It's because there's a flight of steps ahead (see #80160) and you've missed the last turn-off to avoid it.
