Lots of bikes parked next to the Gosport ferry terminal and bus station.

Exceedingly narrow cycle lanes have been provided over the bridge, and the "Beware of oncoming cyclists" sign implies that the traffic signals don't detect when cyclists are still on the bridge before signalling traffic in the other directi ... [more]

The shared-use footway changes sides for some reason, only to cross back at the Diving Museum.

NCN2 turns right on the way to Stoke Bay

The footway along one side of Marine Parade East is shared use. The widening around this bus shelter is laughable!

The footway along one side of the main road in Lee-on-Solent is shared-use. This bit is quite wide.

Crofton Lane was surprisingly busy with motor traffic. Unfortunately I missed the turn for the seafront path and had to endure the traffic all the way along Salterns Road. Proper cycle signage may have helped rather than relying on Sustrans ... [more]

NCN2 is routed along a rough track from Warwash to Hook. Those on narrower tyres may want to give this section a miss and use an alternative on-road route instead.

A bus stop on the Dani King cycleway along Hamble Lane, plus a ramp down to some houses.

Barriers each side of minor road crossing on NCN2!

NCN2 branches off from residents' road in Royal Victoria Country Park.

Not a one-way road. No Entry signs are endorsed "Residents Only". Much of this section of route is signed only with stickers, which are not so easy to see on the on-road sections.

The moment the cycle path quality drops, the fast chap switches onto the road. The road is also slightly more direct. There are no markings to warn car park users of the shared use cycleway/footway, only the sign.

Even fast cyclists use this path!

Here is a picture of a shitty cycle lane in Portsmouth that gives way to a taxi rank.

Some kind of filming, it seems, in the shared-use underpass near Plymouth station.

Bognor Regis - promenade cycle track. Cycling is permitted on this shared route - its part of NCN 2 - but on a busy day cycling can be challenging. It does not help that at this point there is nothing to indicate that cycling is permissabl ... [more]

Segregated cycle path along Southsea sea front. Good in that it is segregated from the road and inside the parking, with a separating zone; less good in that it is too narrow for a two way track.

Bognor Regis - signage as NCN2 joins the shared use promenade. The route heads East along the promenade but there is no lane marking or painted warnings. The shared use notice on the left is repeated at various points.

Bognor Regis - NCN2 at Andrew Avenue Felpham. At the junction ahead, NCN2 bears right. Signage is easy to miss and a wrong turn means joining a very busy road.

Bognor Regis - NCN2 at Triton Way Felpham. Lampost on right indicates that NCN2 bears left at junction - this sign is easy to miss.

Bognor Regis - NCN2 route leaving King George Field at Felpham & bearing right back onto road (Triton Way)

Bognor Regis - NCN2 uses an off road path around the edge of King George Field after leaving Summerley Lane. Paths run in a variety of directions - NCN2 bears right on entering the field.

Bognor Regis - NCN2 leaves Summerley Lane to run off road; the lampost ahead has a sign pointing right up the narrow shared pathway. This is easy to miss if you are not careful.
