Cyclists on Baku's esplanade

Bit of fun with a ramp on Baku's esplanade.

The Carpet Museum, Baku

Baku esplanade

Bicycle sign at cafe on Baku's esplanade

Baku's Crystal Hall

A (not) no cycling sign - the only one I saw on the Baku Esplanade.

Large novely tricycle Baku esplanade

This was about the best of the available hire bikes that I could find, but it was still rather unsatisfactory.

This esplanade is popular with cyclists in the day and early evening. On the right are the three towers of a hotel which are lit like flickering flames - as this is the land of fire, see #108607. On the left is the Caspian Sea where I … [more]

Lochs and Glens South - 18 Location: , Ayr (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Flooded cycle lane and footway. Looks like sand may have blocked drains.

Cycle bypass to mini-roundabout and traffic-calming for those going straight ahead, while NCN 7 is signed to the right for the Low Green path. The footway is also signed as shared-use. Take your pick.

Cycle bypass to traffic-calming, but vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

The path on Low Green comes away from the seafront, only for cyclists to be directed back to the Esplanade.

The cycle route is signed via this path on Low Green rather than along the Esplanade.

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.

Some mandatory cycle lanes on the Esplanade that fill up with parked cars in summer. A continuous segregated lane right the way along the Esplanade, such as there is in Southend, may be more appropriate.

Cycle provision on the Esplanade at Ayr switches randomly between mandatory cycle lanes, onto shared-use footway, then back to mandatory cycle lanes, without any proper transition.

NCN1 on The Esplanade.

Cycle parking at the seafront café.

NCN1 on The Esplanade.

Shared use along the seafront in Redcar.

A not wide enough, two way cycle lane, contains give ways and Zebra crossing beacon poles and steeply raised unmarked ramps at the crossings.

The cycleway is interrupted by a tree, so cyclists have to cross the gutter to get around.
