A very Cambridge image, on an infrastructure tour visiting the site of the construction of the Abbey-Chesterton bridge forming a key link on the Chisholm Trail.

The barriers that caused so much trouble (see #113028) were taken down this morning!

Cyclists burn off the frost early on the Riverside bridge, Cambridge.

Cycleway passes in front of a bus shelter in Sawston

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]

Widened shared use cycleway.

NCN route 11 from Wicken Fen towards Cambridge

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.

Cycleway alongside 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 the ... [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.

NCN route 11 is now signed by the new route to the left parallel to the road.

#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.

Poor road surface under Elizabeth Way bridge / along Walnut Tree Ave. Major cycling route along the river. The county has decided that it is 'not bad enough' to do anything about it, according to Highways Reporting.

Cattle grids on Midsummer common.

Lost Property site at the southern end of the Genome Path (NCN 11).

Signage at the new footbridge by the Genome Path (NCN route 11)

At last! Four years after I started badgering the cycling officers this link to the guided busway cycle route and NCN route 11 has finally been signed.

Gratuitous pinch stile obstructing the path. Action - make the cattle grid full width with a bypass gate for dog walkers etc and remove the pram arms.

The footbridge at Baits Bite Lock is not cycle friendly. This is an important crossing point and should be easy to improve.

Narrow path next to Clayhithe Rd. Note the lady cycling on the road, not the path. It is however a useful way to get on and off the Cam towpath.

The route signs on this lamppost are very odd: why is it just alongside an arbitrary point in the road here and not at a junction? The sign at the top points to: Route 51 → King's Hedges 1¼ St Ives 13 (via the busway) the larg ... [more]

It's not clear if this on-road or a shared-use footway.

National Byway and NCN11 signs in Ickleton

I'm not sure why these signs are here. This isn't on Route 51 or Route 11, and there's nowhere to go at this point except over the bridge or turn back.

New Bit. NCN11 Shared-use. Family groups need space especially with young riders

Coe Fen NCN11 Shared-use. 1.6m You need to look behind you just to walk next to your child

Coe Fen NCN11 Shared-use. At 1.6m there is no room for cycles

Shared-use NCN11 2.5m Caution needed if approaching walkers from the rear (they'd 'just' moved across as they thought they were spoiling my photo, and hadn't seen or heard the bikes)

NCN11 shared-use 2.5m just enough room for two-abreast walking when you can see the oncoming rider

NCN 11 on 'New Bit' Shared-use 2.5 m. enough to ride two-a-breast if no others around

NCN11 2m wide shared-use. Parents (tandem) with small child. Not wide enough to meet others in safety

NCN11 With a 2m shared-use path both pedestrians and riders need to single out. Easy when you meet, not easy when you overtake

Cattle grids permit easy access for cycles to routes over the commons, but not easy access for cattle to the roads

Well used racks at night on Trumpington Street.

King's on the left, Senate House lit up in the middle and behind it the tower of St. John's.

The new footbridge over the railway. The bridge has two railing heights to accommodate tall and short people. There are however no facilities such as ramps to assist those with cycles. I suspect the argument was that this bridge exists t ... [more]

NCN11 from Ely towards Wicken Fen. A bit narrow for two cycles to pass - photos from construction in 2005 makes me suspect this is a failure to cut vegetation back.

NCN11 Route Signs on quiet-ish roads past the Angel at Watlington. RR30 leaves the village past the rail station.

Cycle parking already in place at the new University Technology College, Cambridge

This is why there are no trains south from Cambridge today. A footbridge was being installed see #63315.

Resurfacing the riverside route - no sign for cyclists, but the pedestrian detour works just as well (barriers removed by 4.30 pm).

See clip at The NCN11 route through Milton Country Park. As lovely as the route is, it's not really a proper commuter route. It's slowed considerably by being shared-use and a very twisty route. It's not impos ... [more]

Temporary Path Around Railway Works. Path around temporary railway works. A short diversion, and not bad to use. How long will it be there? See clip at
