Bike shop on the busy cycle route along the Canal St-Martin, Paris

This almost traffic-free road, on the busy cycle route along the Canal St-Martin, sees a succession of delivery vehicles straddling the cycle lane barrier - pretending to keep the cycle lane open but not really. A bizarre pattern of behavio ... [more]

Cycle lane past a road closure - but why not open up the main carriageway to cyclists?

Cycleway (crossing a stream) just northwest of Cluses station

Cycle space on a Swiss train operating the new Léman Express service from St Gervais to Coppet (via a new tunnel beneath Geneva).

Notice showing that cycle are not allowed here - bizarrely, this covered parking area is specifically for motorbikes and scooters.

Small covered area for cycle parking at the Carrefour hypermarket

End of the shared-use route north from Sallanches station

Start of the shared-use route to Sallanches station

The cycle route to Sallanches station uses this quiet road (unsigned) for a while.

One day maybe this missing link in the cycleway parallel to the Arve valley railway will be filled in.

Cycle parking at a 'pub' in an otherwise car-dominated retail park.

Sallanches is a Cycling Town

Roundabout marking Bernard Hinault's winning the World Road Race Championship here in 1980, after an epic struggle with the young Robert Millar.

Bizarre crossing through a road junction - this should definitely be done in two stages.

New map of Chamonix Valley mountain bike routes

Start of unsigned riverside track to Chamonix

Mountain-bike route sign, and No Cycling on the path into the woods to the right.

Underpass beneath the Chamonix-Martigny road

The footpath under the railway is closed, but the foot/cycle bridge over the Arveyron means this isn't a problem; and the track to the right leads to Les Praz.

Sign for cyclists heading from Chamonix towards the Col des Montets - usually they have more information about altitude and gradients.

Level crossing now closed to motor vehicles, but functioning normally for cyclists and pedestrians.

Mountain bike and hiking route signs at the bridge over the Arveyron

The very frosty bridge over the Arveyron

Mountain bike and hiking route signs

At least there's one mountain bike route sign now - see #109174

Bike-sharing station and cycleway past Nice airport

A decent amount of cycle parking at Terminal 2 of Nice airport

According to OpenCycleMap, this new levee between Tarascon and Arles has a cycleway on top - this would be great if there weren't full-width barriers wherever it meets a road.

No motor vehicles; horse-riders dismount; cyclists ride slowly along the cliffside stretch of the Lot towpath

When a tour boat wants to use the lock a member of staff jumps on a bike to come and help with the gates.

Mountain bike route sign - not via the Lot towpath

180 degree turn here to reach the Lot towpath.

Narrow bridge across the Lot - and there's usually a car trying to get across in the other direction.

Green lane south of Calvignac - lovely but not much used now. Apparently these were the only roads up on the causse until asphalt roads were built under the Marshall Plan.

Track on the north side of the Lot - this could be connected up as a cycle route.

The disused Lot Valley railway - I'd love to see this converted to a cycle route, with some fun tunnels!

Hiking signs for an alternative to the (admittedly pretty quiet) D8 road to the right.

Alternative to the (admittedly pretty quiet) D8 road to the left.

Alternative to the (admittedly pretty quiet) D8 road immediately to the left.

Track to the south of Sauliac-sur-Célé

Track to Vieux-Sauliac and into the woods - I'm fairly sure it will meet a road up on the causse eventually.

No Motor Bikes - so cycles must be allowed, right? Although I know I'd be pushing.

Modal filters in Rocamadour

Cycle parking at the convenient end of the Rocamadour car park

Cycle parking (also in the distance) at the convenient end of the Rocamadour car park

Sign to two-wheeler parking at Rocamadour - more for motorbikes than cycles, I suspect.

A tempting route but a dead-end - cyclists need to go through the village of Mercues to the right.

Cycle route V86 follows the river from the left/south, turns inland then heads to the right through the vineyards.

Modal filter, Cahors
