The cycleway here is narrow and the surface poor, but this isn't such a bad thing - go too fast here and you risk a head-on collision with another cyclist. I think the overgrowth needs cutting back though.

Barrier too narrow for my handlebars. That is the Lands End to John O'Groats map on my map holder.

A frame not wide enough! please replace with bollards.

No disabled access here, just a locked gate and a very narrow A-Frame.

No cycle access, No disabled access. Access for rangers vehicles (locked). Horse traps and pedestrian access. How unsatisfactory is that for a gate on a cycleway.
