Amazing number of stud lights here at the junction of two shared-use routes

Very visible route sign at end of New Road, Girton

Bunker's Hill and crossing of the Huntingdon Road towards Girton

People are reluctant to cross Girton Road here to reach the crossing of the Huntingdon Road, because of fast cars turning into Girton Road.

Typically car-dominated South Cambs residential development.

Lots of private car parking at the new Abbeyfield Girton community centre.

Poor cycle stands (too short to support a bike) at the new Abbeyfield Girton community centre.

Access to Girton College from Girton village - a footpath that leads through the Maintenance yard.

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A The bottom end of Washpit Lane is overgrown. Quite awkward to get through here with brambles seeking blood! Despite this being the same bridleway route through to Girton as http://cambridge.cycl ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A This is a cycle route across and through the A14/M11 junction. It goes along the side of the A14. Notice that the signs are NOT in the path. An example of good practice!

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A Path through A14/M11 junction overgrown. My hand got ripped from my handlebars trying to get through this bush. Reported to County Council, reference NM-77757.

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A Path from near Madingley American Cemetery to Girton. Probably useable throughout the year. The goes through the A14/M11 interchange later, but is fully segregated from traffic with 3 slightly f ... [more]

I saw a cyclist cut through this gap, salmon up the hatched area then cross into the one-way (the other way) cycle lane to Girton. Why??

It must be a 'safety improvement' that has put the bus stop right into the mandatory cycle lane.

Half-hidden in leaves, a bypass that lets cycles avoid cars turning right but still brings them into the roundabout rather than beyond it.

Dead-end path at new housing in Girton

Typically car-dominated South Cambs housing development - there's not even enough car parking, and the only place to lock bikes in on the railings.

As at Orchard Park, developers in S Cambs forget about things like dropped kerbs and have to add them as a shoddy afterthought. Nice covered cycle parking at the sheltered housing across the road, though.

Dead-end (both ends) track by new housing, Girton

Dead-end (both ends) track by new housing, Girton

Crude cycle parking at Wolfson Court (Girton College), a railing into which people place their front wheels, and concrete slabs with indentations for front wheels, neither of which make it easy to properly secure a bike. Many bikes are ... [more]

Girton cycleway The alignment of the far dropped kerb is a little to the right of where you might expect it to be.

White lines on the edges of this cycleway are particularly useful at night and when cycling in the opposite direction - when vehicle headlights can make it very difficult to see the path.
