This is the covid 19 sign telling cyclists they should dismount. On an A road (A183 in Whitburn). Council logo on so my council tax is being wasted on this. I feel an email to a councillor coming on https://t.co/xgMC3dh2Dm

NO, Cumbria Council, you do not tell cyclists to dismount when the cycle lane is closed. You might put up a sign warning drivers that cyclists may be merging into the traffic.

No Cycling on this section of NCN route 6 in Kendal !

No Cycling, supposedly, on this section of NCN route 6 in Kendal

Cyclists Dismount sign on what is now NCN route 6 in Kendal !

Claypits Nature Reserve bridge under construction over the Forth & Clyde Canal. There is a rough path to get around the side of the worksite.

The dead-end road is narrowed to a single lane here, but they still felt it necessary to put up Cyclists Dismount signs.

Please dismount for the freshly laid 10 metres of straight tarmac that has recently been laid. What is this pointlessness? @GoBikeGlasgow https://t.co/q8wMpCpnXE

After intervention from Midlothian's access officer (thanks @MidHelp), @networkrail have installed 'access' through their barricades. Passable if you're walking, able to get off your (standard two wheeled) bike and push and maybe with a bug ... [more]

This is shown as a dismounting area for access to Euston station.

NCN8 with utterly ridiculous cyclists dismount sign.

Steps linking from Dunblane Drive onto the East Kilbride railway path. If there was the political will, there would be a ramp here.

Not only has the footbridge got steps and no ramp, but it is also in the way of the Queensway shared-use footway.

There's a cyclists dismount sign here despite 2 city councils and 1 metro borough adopting a policy that all new bridges should allow cycling without dismounting !! Adopted March 2008 Salford CC Manchester CC Treafford MBC https:// ... [more]

Just a reminder that, with some commendable exceptions, the UK largely lacks cycle infra planners & engineers who know how to build basic infra. Educating our planners & traffic engineers should be a top priority. https://t.co/mTrOGR2q4 ... [more]

I was surprised to find this direction sign for HMNB Clyde, Faslane, at this location.

'Cyclists Dismount' at the footbridge across the motorway connecting Queenslie Industrial Estate and the Fort shopping centre.

The entrance to the Robroyston station car park on the Millerston side. A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign but nothing to say motorists can't drive all the way to their parking spaces.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, unusually in mixed upper and lower case, at the entrance to Robroyston station car park, suggesting the footway from #112818 is indeed shared-use. For those not on the footway, a mandatory tour of the car park ... [more]

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

Approaching the end of the shared-use path alongside the canal in Thorne, and another 'Cyclists Dismount' sign coming into view.

Another 'Cyclists Dismount' sign in Thorne.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign for a small bridge in the shared-use path alongside the canal in Thorne.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on the same pole as a sign saying cycling is allowed. Are cyclists only meant to dismount to go around the corner then remount?

'Cyclists Dismount to use Crossing'

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign with no obvious reason why dismounting is advised. Maybe cyclists should join the carriageway here.

A request to dismount on a narrow shared use foot / cycleway, Hereford.

Another Cyclists Dismount sign on Station Road, Cambridge - not currently operational, of course.

Cyclists Dismount sign - presumably because cars might be moving....

No idea what this sign is doing here - as the painted marking makes clear, this is a shared-use cycle route.

Can't be good to feel like a mug for following official cycle route signs. This is part of the Wirral Circular trail in West Kirby. For me it's irritating, those with mobility issues or nonstandard cycles are simply excluded. We can do bett ... [more]

No Vehicles and Cyclists Dismount on Foundry Hill leading to a toucan crossing across Main Street (at #110745). There were no such signs at the other end of the lane. A dropped kerb could also be provided.

The end of the shared-use footway on Kirkgate, but better to have gone to the left side of the road from the traffic island back at #110327, rather than attempt to join the carriageway here.

A lack of thought over desire lines here. Looking from the passageway under the building seen in #110325 to a series of toucan crossings across a large roundabout at Kirkgate on the edge of Wakefield city centre. Although there is an 'en ... [more]

A Cyclists Dismount sign for the footbridge over Jubilee Way.

Ah, National Cycle Network in Wandsworth, London. How we love you so. You have to be quite strong to wheel a bike up the ramp to this gate and then push through. Lovely stuff from @wandbc https://t.co/cUcMXLayfA Similar in Cambridge, see ... [more]

NCN75 goes right through Gourock station, but it doesn't look like anyone is getting in this gate today. A path to the left is really what is needed, allowing access past the station to reach #91054 without dismounting.

Llandudno shared use with sign saying Cyclists Dismount. (Taken from a bus.)

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

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]

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]

Cyclists Dismount sign on Newhaven Swing bridge (NCN2) - not sure why, as it's no different to the shared-use path on either side.

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]
