@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.

ah, the national mud wrestling network, incidentally you can cycle here, if you dare Ed: "Turf Lane" the clue's in the name 😉

Wash Lane adjacent to Wash Lane Common. South Mimms services signed as a refreshments

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.

Invisible left turn off A1 cycleway into Blanche Lane, which enables rider to reach NCN12 at South Mimms without cycling round A1(M) junction 1/M25 junction 23. The left turn is level with the line in the tarmac in the foreground.

Entrance to obscure bridleway linking NCN12/61 to Mill Green Museum and then the cycle path along the side of the A414. Beatrix Potter walked along this route when staying at Bush Hall and then going to paint the mill, now Mill Green Mus ... [more]

Subway from Batterdale linking to French Horn Lane cycleroute. This could be used as a better route for NCN12 avoiding the roundabout in #74069 but not allowed as subway is deemed too low. View from other end is in #74068. Note thi ... [more]

NCN12 where it joins NCN61 at the north end of Old Hatfield. NCN12 turns right to head north to Welwyn Garden City. Island crossing of road enabling each lane to be crossed separately with clear signs. View going south can be seen ... [more]

Junction where NCN12 leaves NCN61 and goes south via Old Hatfield. Central island big enough for bikes with clear signs. View in other direction on NCN12 in #74074

NCN12 leaves Old Hatfield via this busy roundabout on the Great North Road. A much better route would be via the subway from Batterdale see #74068 and #74077.

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!

NCN 12: Sandy, Bedfordshire Double scaffold & concrete post chicane. This is used by both cyclists and pedestrians. The gap space allowed is barely 1 metre in each barrier. The two sets of barriers are too close to each other. An unloa ... [more]

Road closure and crossing on NCN route 12 just north of central Sandy

Right into the car park and then left.

NCN route 12 turns left after these barriers - too tight for trailers.

NCN route 12 turns right here on the paved route

Lots of permeability and connectivity in this part of Sandy

NCN 51 and NCN12 leading towards the centre of Sandy (cars go a much longer way around).

Junction of NCN routes 12 and 51 with the old Sandy-Bedford railway route

NCN routes 12 and 51 heading down to the old Sandy-Bedford railway route

Very short section of shared-use route before the Cyclists Dismount sign at Great Barford bridge.

Cyclists are supposed to dismount and and wheel their bikes across Great Barford bridge - or use the road, of course, but beware that the one-way lights might change before you're across.

Cyclists on the very short section of shared-use route before the Cyclists Dismount sign at Great Barford bridge.

Redundant Sustrans sign - NCN routes 12 and 51 follow the old Sandy-Bedford railway line just to the south.

Spiral bridge on NCN12 over South Way, Hatfield. This was originally built to serve a School, now closed.

Gate at south end of Oxley Park, NCN12. Impassable for tricycles and disabled buggies. Difficult for tandems.

Gate on National Cycle Route 12 to stop misuse by motorbikes but which blocks the route for tricycles and disabled buggies. Located at north end of Oxley Wood, Hatfield.

Junction between NCN12, turning right, and cycle route to central Hatfield, straight on

Ten years after I started photomap I've revisited the site of #1. The 001 marking on this shared use cycleway is still visible!

Ermine Street, Huntingdon - apparently also NCN12.

Richardson's Cycles on Ermine Street and NCN12.

Exit from Weston Way to off road section of NCN12. Note the barrier to catch bikes turing off the road and how going south you hit the barrier before giving way. Poor!

Entrance to new section of NCN12 on Wagon Road. There is now a dropped kerb at this location solving the access problem previously reported.
