I applaud the Newnham Bakery taking over a parking space for cycle parking, but I wish they'd installed stands which actually support bikes - it's not that well used as a result.

As if this gate wasn't awkward enough to negotiate before, somebody has bolted a post onto the narrow cattle grid. Why is there so much resistance to making this busy, popular route to Granchester cycle friendly?

I've pretty much given up reporting potholes like these, but maybe I'll try again.

Two Sheffield stands at this new Darwin College development, which don't seem to get much use - but at least no-one is parking a car here either.

Sadly predictable - Darwin College built accommodation with no easily accessible cycle parking, so bikes are chained to the fence outside.

There's a residents' parking scheme coming, and people are creating off-road car-storage spaces to avoid paying £52 a year.

Pointless and invisible sign.

Confusing - which Road Ahead? All traffic turns right here anyway.

Lots of fuss and bother - I think the road to the right is the one that's meant to be closed, and the diversion is straight ahead. In any case it's just a point closure so in most cases drivers can take the direct route to their destination ... [more]

Access maintained for pedestrians, and thus wheeling bikes on the gravel.

The council has found 50p down the back of the sofa and at last repainted the shared-use markings which had vanished years ago.

The County RoW officer says that local residents object to the surface of the Grantchester Meadows path here being repaired "because it would encourage parking". Well the state of it clearly doesn't deter parking, people park on the bits wi ... [more]

Newnham crater field The start of the Grantchester Meadows path, destroyed by use as a casual car park

There are currently three vehicles parked on this double yellow line all day Monday to Friday.

New cycle stands at the refurbished Lammas Land tennis courts

New solar studs on both sides of the Sheep's Green cycle path.

There's been some patching at the top of Grantchester St - I doubt if it'll last long.

Funny how illegal parking on the double yellow lines comes and goes here - these may belong to builders (they were there most of the day).

Plenty of good new covered cycle parking at Owlstone Croft (Queens' College)

This coffee trike has taken up residence in the mornings at the corner of Grantchester St and Barton Rd.

New 20mph zone in Newnham Croft, Cambridge

Amazing - someone left a car on the footway across my only access for at least an hour today.

Odd sign - No Cycles in forecourt, when there's covered cycle parking there under the tree!

Unsecured bikes at Owlstone Croft (Queens' College residence). Plenty of space for cycle stands.

The most abused ASL in Cambridge. Really no excuse.

On-street cycle parking needed (in place of one car space).

Two households with lots of heavy bikes with big baskets etc - please can we have some on-street parking to clear the footway?

Even in the middle of winter the bridleway between Barton and Grantchester is well used by cyclists, as can be seen by the multitude of tyre tracks in the mud. This really could do with a proper, sealed surface.

Obstructive parking at pick-up time from Newnham Croft School is getting to be a problem again.

See http://radwagon.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/barton-road-traffic-light-junction.html

Cycle parking urgently needed at this shared college house (bikes are left on the other side of the road too) - if the council won't take out a car parking space, maybe they should turn their garage over to secure cycle parking instead?

More and more children and parents are cycling to Newnham Croft school.
