Ayot St Peter church by National Route 12. A useful landmark.

@hopsncheese George Street, #Huntingdon would benefit from 2 way cycling - part of @sustrans #NationalCycleNetwork route. @Huntingdon_Town views needed. @AmyBurbidge2 @Tomstukeley https://t.co/gExEvG3WKE

some bits of grade separation in Stevenage

Tiny subway wouldn't be complete without a 'cyclists dismount' sign of course.

Shared path seperated from highway by a crash barrier

Seriously overgrown section of NCN12 adjacent to the M25, almost impassable

Fence with gate on Dancer's Lane

Segregated cycle track running southwards of spiral bridge in need of a little maintenance

Path width seriously restricted by bramble and nettle growth also restricting visibility

Path was seriously overgrown dangerously restricting viability on the corner, this has recently been cut back and the pavement cleaned up.

Forest of bollards. Good luck trying to get your bike through here on this 'national cycle route', much less a tricycle or adapted cycle of any sort. Typical masochistic 'infrastructure' brought to you by Sustrans.

Ramp to railway bridge on NCR12 in Crown Lakes. Somewhere under all this moss and corrosion is a pathway that was built long ago and never maintained.

NCR12 just east of railway bridge in Crown Lakes. Muddy path. Nice views though.

Subway under Great North Road Hatfield. This could be used to divert NCN12 away from a busy roundabout, but rulled out because the subway is too low to be legally acceptable. Hertfordshire County Council should take the view this is s ... [more]

French Horn Lane Hatfield where NCN12 turns south. Note NCN12 goes onto the road to the left despite the wide island. Cyclists should use the waiting area on road not the island.

Fore Street and the Eight Bells Pub on NCN12. Old Hatfield, Hertfordshire. Fans of Oliver Twist should note this is believed to be the pub Bill Sykes hides out in after Nancy is murdered.

Often floods under M25 after rain. Can get so deep you cannot see your bike wheels!
