First time through this way for a little while. As usual, an illegally stopped vehicle, with a nearby legal space. Looks like they've been here awhile and are not leaving soon. I know you've worked hard on this @IanGManning, what more can w ... [more]

Green End is a dead end. It SHOULD be a meeting of ways. 1. The Byway meets Horningsea Road at the point where the cycle track becomes far too narrow. 2. The footpath to Baits Bite Lock could connect to the towpath on the other side and ... [more]

Fen Ditton High Street - an escape from the busy rat run that is Ditton Lane / Horningsea Road.

Plenty of room here to widen the shared use path into Fen Ditton

Not as bad as it looks, but never the less, a clutter of signal poles at the A14 slip roads

See http://radwagon.blogspot.com/2016/08/pleasant-circular-route-round-cambridge.html for a video of riding around a pleasant little ride around Cambridge on good infra, not so good infra, and quiet roads. Just enjoy!

I suspect that the signage on Fison Road is wrong. I'm pretty sure cars should be allowed here.

Deutsche Fehnroute / German fen route.

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A Low Fen Drove Way really feels like the back of beyond. A very quiet and remote spot. It's actually listed as a byway, open to motor vehicles, but I've never seen any. It's just about to get to a m ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A Thick Cow Muck on the Coe Fen, reported to County Council, reference NM-77755.

See clip at http://youtu.be/az0Kthyc6Nk Not a massive issue but one that needs some note. The "nice" route for people riding is longer and takes longer without any delays. If it's to appear benefical to riders, delays like this need sort ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/bojFSyCZUck Yep, not 200 yards from the centre of town, a small muntjac decided to race me along the cyclepath. It heads to the path in front, then bombs along up the track to turn off just before the leet ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/iYA2F8lSe3Y (Picture taken whilst crossing beeping) Slow moving traffic, and yet some people driving feel the need to jump red lights. Ah, those pesky cyclists that jump red lights, eh. There was plenty of ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/BxyX2A68kEc There are some hazards that are a little more untoward in Cambridge. Cows is one! Slow down and don't make any loud noises, although this lot are very used to people walking and cycling near them.

See clip at http://youtu.be/_ct4-ohdgwk As the clip starts there's plenty of evidence of cows, splattered all over the shared path. Lovely! Then, as I roudn the corner, all the vegetation is back underneath the hedge, as this is one of ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/F4RkmrPGI5s Usually I cycle along the pavement here, as it's a shared path. However, a couple of pedestrians walking in the same direction as me, or a family meandering along, and I'd prefer the road, if it's ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/v6Yuzyi2BgI Really do not understand the reaction here, short of wanting to complain. I approach along SHARED path on the (traditional) left side. They stare at me, clearly indicating they had seen me, but ... [more]

The cattle grids are a huge improvement over the old pinch stiles that used to prevent cattle from wandering off the commons. However, in a step backwards, the barriers have recently been fitted with these arms, jutting out into the path. T ... [more]

Railway bridge over the river Cam from Chesterton Siding south. For a view of the eastern side of the bridge >> #37499<<.

Access to Chesterton Sidings from the Fen Road crossing. This shows the backend of the houses on Moss Bank and the three white pillars ( #37502 ). For a view from the Fen Road railway crossing sout, over the railway bridge across the river ... [more]

see clip at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07PuWUd5tY4 Unfortunate follow up from yesterdays good experience here (at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvz8EFu50a8 ). A long wait and a dangerous car red light jumping. Not surprisingly t ... [more]

See clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvz8EFu50a8 This crossing usually takes 90-120 seconds to change, making this route into town unfriendly to cyclists. This time I was surprised that it changed in 5-6 seconds after pressing the ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD_fCbnJ9I8 As a cyclist you are allowed to use your mobile phone. This isn't too difficult to understand, you are on a much slower vehicle that isn't capable of quite the destruction of motor ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMufMkPcQOs Hmm, this is probably one of the worst examples of complete lack of control over animals. The person walking towards me sees me, then completely ignores the fact that their animals ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doUolf0X0o0 This pedestrian shows wonderful control of their dog, not. He's wondering along with headphones in, not looking out for his animal or anyone else using the path. I slow, as it my ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgEnyQAIEVA Okay, just an irritation but it is another reason I like to be off shared paths. This jogger has no idea that anyone else is behind them. Be it cyclist or other runner. I take my ... [more]

Advisory 'Cyclist Dismount' signs imposed by the county council's lawyers - if cyclists really did dismount it would grind to a halt in the rush hour, but weekend dog-walkers don't see it this way.

Good practice, except that it's also a shared-use cycle path - but there is level access at each end. (These barriers had been waiting for repair since the summer of 2009 - see #19037 )
