Narrow public footpath behind the Pepys Way estate in Girton.

Poor connection to the public bridleway from Weaver's Field, Girton.

Public footpath on the right, gate on the left.

Public bridleway Bar Hill 3¼ Huntingdon 17 A cycleway to Girton is marked to the right.

Bridge over the A14, public footpath on the left and a field on the right.

Public footpath off Huntingdon Road

The farm access road from Bar Hill to Girton is now signposted as a bridleway. The route to Girton is the narrow path just to the right of the obvious route. The footpath to the right should be improved as a cycle route to Eddington.

Washpit Lane to Girton, with the silly little gate removed.

The farm access road from Bar Hill to Girton is now signposted as a bridleway - for a lot of cyclists this will be a better route to/from Cambridge than the cycleway by the A1307 past the crematorium.

The pop-up cycle lanes have vanished but will probably return.

One house, seven bikes and a trailer.

Flooded path (cycles can pass) - this really should have been transformed into a modern cycleway before Eddington opened.

The Footpath Closed signs have reappeared - the path is flooded, but cycles can pass.

Cycle stands at the Old Crown pub, Girton

Six months on, the path closed/deviation signs are still up - and dropped kerbs are needed here.

Newly renovated crossing (4m wide), now single stage & wider.

Newly renovated crossing.

The hideously narrow cycle lanes painted recently in Girton. Too narrow for a person in a handcycle to use, and often covered in parked cars anyway.

The Girton-Histon bridleway arriving at the busway

The Histon to Girton bridleway turns right here - ahead is a footpath

Bikes (buggies, wheelchairs etc) have to be lifted over the logs on the Girton to Histon bridleway

The Girton-Histon bridleway, with various permissive field-edge paths to the right.

The Girton-Histon bridleway was a metalled track once - now the shared-use path along New Road is clearly the preferred route.

Unprotected swerve across the road needed to join the cycleway

Cars parked as if the new cycle lanes hadn't been painted - because of course they're advisory and thus useless.

Start of new advisory cycle lanes painted by Cambridgeshire County Council because proper mandatory lanes would take time and effort.

New advisory cycle lanes painted by Cambridgeshire County Council because proper mandatory lanes would take time and effort - so drivers leave cars in the cycle lane and the cyclist is pushed out into the road.

Works on this path to Huntingdon Road have finished and locals have pushed aside the barriers. Time to remove them properly.

There's no sign at the bridge, but this footpath may still be closed, in theory.

Only the narrow path to the right is open, but it should be possible to open up the old route to the left.

This bridge across the A14 has finally been cleared of useless barriers.

New bridleway from Girton to Histon - getting a bit overgrown already

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

Very visible route sign at end of New Road, Girton

Dog's-leg crossing of New Road, Girton

This path should be improved for cycling.

Bike shop, South Girton - I'll try to get a daytime photo, but it's better than none at all!

Route sign and crossing of the Huntingdon Road towards 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.

Typically car-dominated South Cambs residential development - what else could the footways be for?

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.

Paved footpath from the Huntingdon Road to Girton - this should be improved before the NorthWest Cambridge development opens.

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.

Typically drab car-dominated South Cambs development

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]

A possible cycle route over the A14 for Histon/Girton?

Narrow Pavement Cycleway - its OK when its like this, but treacherous when there are pedestrians, dog-walkers and oncoming cyclists.

Path widening in Girton?

'Farm Access Only' at the Girton end of Washpit Lane - not if you're on foot, bike or horse it isn't. As usual, road signs refer only to cars!

Crafts: a penny farthing or 'ordinary' sewn into this card at Girton Flower and Vegetable show.

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.

My Ross recumbent lying down to gauge the width of the cycleway.

These are solar powered lights, but why do they all have yellow paint on them? cycleway
