Ditton Meadows - this route is closed for construction of the bridge.

Footbridge on Ditton Meadows. The gravel recently added here helps access a little.

This route across the railway footbridge remains open, but is briefly closed to allow heavy plant and other construction vehicles to cross.

Photo taken thru the Heras fencing - the jetty surface and railing have been removed.

Jetty route now closed.

This jetty overhanging the river under the railway bridge is due to close today until summer 2020 for construction of the Abbey - Chesterton foot and cycle bridge.

Bit of a (pleasing) surprise to see this large: Welcome to Milton Keynes sign from the NCN51.

An advisory 'NO CYCLING' sign on NCN51 through Central Milton Keynes. Cycling is not prohibited here, if it were then the round no cycling sign would have been used. What this demonstrates is the lack of a sign to suggest that cycles should ... [more]

It's pretty poor that on purpose-built new infrastructure, cyclists on NCN route 51 should have to take a sharp turn and use a zebra crossing.

Signs indicate that buses used to run through the centre of St Ives, but the bollards are fixed now (on NCN route 51)

Cyclists on NCN route 51 towards the Busway should turn left here before the roundabout.

Shared-use footway to the Hemingfords

They really don't want cycling on this paved footpath to St Ives

Odd - there was no indication of a shared-use path until it suddenly ended.

Odd - we haven't got to St Ives yet, and there's a sign on the wrong side of the road for Fenstanton and Cambridge.

Paved link from NCN route 51 - there's a barrier at the end, but no reason why this should be a footpath only.

Worn-out sign for NCN route 51 on the main bus route in Milton Keynes - very poor planning.

Sign for NCN route 51 where cycling is not allowed.

Excellent underpass in central Milton Keynes

There are lots of underpasses in Milton Keynes and then for some reason this flat crossing of a main road.

In a city with lots of decent segregated cycle routes, they've decided to send users of NCN route 51 up a main road with heavy bus traffic.

Cycle parking in Milton Keynes and an arrow for users of NCN route 51 to turn right - but I think they mean straight ahead.

NCN route 51 runs through the car park here.

You couldn't make it up - there are plenty of decent segregated cycleways in Milton Keynes, and Sustrans manages to find a route for NCN route 51 on whch cycling is not even allowed! See also #101701.

Sign transferring the responsibility for controlling a motor vehicle onto the foot or cycleway user.

Great to see the proposals for the ice rink include this splendid looking cycle parking. Had this when I checked on 2017/12/31: *UPDATE* Due to the discovery of unexploded WWII grenades on site, co ... [more]

Lovely pathway between the Houghton Mill (National Trust site) and NCR 51. Looks like it has been recently resurfaced and widened. Land is under private ownership and path is permissive. Being in a flood plain it is occasionally impassable ... [more]

Even the cows are in a good mood today.

New bollards on NCN51 just before it goes under the A14, near Quy

A nice new replacement bridge over the River Colne, but the signs obscure visibility of each other. Also on a round pole, rather than the square poles used elsewhere locally.

A nice replacement bridge over the River Colne, but a pity about the tactiles being the wrong type. The sign reads "Please give way to pedestrians on bridge".

I didn't appreciate it at the time, but this is the junction of NCN1 and NCN51. The sign seems to have lost an arm since #27125 was taken.

Perhaps we'll see some flowers in those unusual planters on the #ReachRide.

Useful new sign at the bottom, if I'm not mistaken.

Improbably, an erstwhile outpost of London’s north-west railway network, where, according to the poet John Betjeman: "Grass triumphs. And I must say I’m rather glad". Maybe he would have been more approving of ncn 51 that this westboun ... [more]

08_2013_37 Local cycle route near A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon [See nearby tab for other photos of this sign]

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]

I have no idea why these are here. This isn't on Route 51.

I have no idea why these signs have been put here. This isn't on Route 51. There is another set a few yards away, also incorrect.

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).

For those who preferred to stay on the road rather than cross to the shared-use footway, a right-turn refuge has been provided here so there's no need to go around the roundabout.

Cyclists on NCN 51 should cross the road here to use the footway under the A1. It might be simpler just to use the road.

Mystifying cycle lane on this dead-end route - in fact NCN51 turns sharp right to follow an off-road route under the A1.
