A sign to Sawston has been added!

Terrible infrastructure on NCN route 11 - there's shared-use footway where it's not needed (and no dropped kerb) and then you're thrown out onto the road where a cycleway to Station Road would actually be useful.

NCN route 11 crossing the A505, with a bit of shared-use path southbound only.

Northbound cyclists have to turn onto the island then wait for a gap in the traffic on the A505 (twice).

Road off NCN route 11 to Strethall church - it's not a dead end for cycles.

It's worth the detour off NCN route 11 (and it's not a dead-end for cycles)

Turn left behind the camera for NCN route 11 - there are arrows before and after the junction, but not actually at the turn.

National Byway sign - it would be good to have a sign for NCN route 11 too.

Slightly misleading signs on NCN route 11 - do not go up the bridleway.

Of course it's more important to have a statutory lawyer's notice about trespass on the busway than a usable sign for the National Cycle Network.

This is NCN route 11 south from Ely - not an impressive start.

NCN route 11 meeting the cycle bridge by the Ely Southern Bypass

Raised cycleway by about fifteen inches to get a bit above the flood. This path is the only alternative to the busy fast road over a footway-less river and road bridge.

Unfortunately there are continuous puddles along this towpath, about 15 years after it was nicely surfaced.

Colourful lighting at Riverside Bridge.

Absolutely horrible right turn here on NCN route 11

This cycleway does not give way to driveways - these cycle markers should be enough for all users.

A decent new cycleway in poppy season.

This is behaviour from someone driving that is not usual but is far more prevalent than it should be. As someone riding, I have the right to not be threatened by others behaviour. We have lanes to indicate where we have priority. At the ... [more]

Route marker to NCN route 11 and the busway - not visible from Long Road

The route sign to the busway/NCN route 11 (see #85556) has vanished for some reason.

NCN route 11 uses this toucan crossing, although the sensors/timing favour motor traffic.

NCN route 51 signed as route 11 - it may be an alternative route for when the towpath is unavailable.

Shame on the Addenbrooke's site - instead of providing plenty of cycle parking at the new developments here, visitors are having to find places like this to leave their bikes. This is some distance from the main buildings, and provides none ... [more]

NCN11 A505 crossing approach. Terrible layout with drop kerbs for pedestrians, not cycles. There needs to be a flush kerb on the desire line, giving a direct approach as there was for many years before this development.

New layout at A505 crossing. No flush kerb where one should be.

Cyclists Dismount. Why? Ridiculous

Need for cycle parking on this street.

Neptunes Chair artwork on NCN11.

The cycle bridge by the Ely Southern Bypass connects here with the National Cycle Network route 11. Cyclists Dismount does not mean No Cycling and so why is it there? Is it to appease other users? See #106639. Some drone footage of th ... [more]

There isn't actually a through route here - better to stay on the road to Whittlesford church.

There is no through route here - far better to turn right to the road.

Maybe somebody has noticed that having an unprotected right turn on NCN route 11 right before a roundabout is very dangerous.

Parking for six cycles outside the takeaway in Town Square is concealed behind this low wall. I assume that hiding it made sense to someone.

Dropped kerb in the corner spaces of this car park enables a short-cut to the market square instead of going all the way west to the Railway Road junction - as long as no cars are parked here!

Diversion of NCN11 to pass under the new Ely southern bypass

To reach the new cycle route (NCN route 11) from Whittlesford to Sawston, you can either use this footpath or go around through the churchyard, where you're asked to dismount.

#Cambridgeproblems oars on the cycleway!

A really horrible barrier in the middle of a bumpy and miserly cycleway. At least the scenery north of here is decent. But you often feel like you're going to have a head-on collision, the path is so small there. Really unfortunate, s ... [more]

The already-too-small cycleway is being overgrown, as happens every year, by surrounding greenery.
