Roadworks closing the shared footway alongside Bunhouse Road. Pedestrians are diverted through the car park, no mention of cycling. I went onto the road, but this is not possible in the opposite direction since it is one-way.

A short diversion around some ongoing work, but the uneven surface and narrow width make it rather awkward to negotiate.

[Image taken 9.6.21] Skeldergate, York. I noticed this sign today. Perhaps because the street was quiet so I could look ahead? And because my eye naturally followed the vehicles ahead? I can't read the yellow sign in the background in the i ... [more]
