Very muddy, slippery surface when wet

Another example of the poor cycle infra in the Newmarket Road retail park. The driver just pulls up and stops (without indicating to traffic behind) in the cyclelane and the passenger opens the door straight away. This, combined with https ... [more]

New, very poor cycle infra in the retail park. Note "Cyclists use cyclelane only" is advisory so will confuse a lot of people. And it's a very bad place to ride, as shown by people walking in it. Just 10 metres earlier, this happened: https ... [more]

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

Although there are no shared-use signs, the position of this little NCN sign suggests that all cyclists are expected to use this bog standard footway when following the National Cycle Network routes. Or at least that squares with the work-a ... [more]

Poor drainage on the Low Green path.

There is a nasty, blind dog-leg on the Tesco Fulbourn path. I was hit, head on, by another rider as I came round this bend earlier this summer. The path continues straight on, to the left (see lady just emerging on a bike), but visibili ... [more]

One example of a very poor pass, several more here. http://radwagon.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/ncn11-south-from-cambridge-part-2.html#Bypass (Date could be 1 or 2 days out, time is correct.)

See clip at https://youtu.be/NnGkX09AMuw. The paint on this junction is very poor advice for people riding. NEVER go over to the left when going through here. Swinging over to the left will mean: - you lose visibility - you enco ... [more]

See clip at https://youtu.be/TaImOiLPAsE Just a really poorly judged overtake. sadly, don't know when this happened.

More examples of why this really isn't a safe cyclelane. See http://radwagon.blogspot.com/2014/10/cherry-hinton-useless-cyclelane.html

More examples of why this really isn't a safe cyclelane. The bus is forcing oncoming traffic into the cyclelane unnecessarily. See http://radwagon.blogspot.com/2014/10/cherry-hinton-useless-cyclelane.html

See clip at https://youtu.be/LiNXfp00R4o Another new poor development for no reason whatsoever.

The path to the Wardpark Industrial Estate has been left to rot. Why not upgrade this path and include it in the Cumbernauld Cycle Network?

The Bowes Railway Path under the A1 dual carriageway no less, in a poor condition on all counts.

Due to the low bridges, horse-riders need to dismount. I noticed that at the similar sign on the other side of the low bridges that there was a concrete block to assist riders dismounting. But on this side it is too overgrown to get to.

Poor quality surface on the Bowes Railway Path.

A very poor quality cycle path.

The Bowes Railway Path is in a very poor condition. The ramp to Newcastle Bank has a step at the end where it hasn't been tied into the main path properly.

Fancy paving in a terrible state on main bus route through Southampton city centre, causing people to cycle on kerb or footway.

See clip at http://youtu.be/rowLhaCF348 Just an awful pass. Passing to Close Highway code rule 213. Motorcyclists and cyclists may suddenly need to avoid uneven road surfaces and obstacles such as drain covers or oily, wet or icy p ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/oRuzzQ33F0U I think this was a driver under instruction. If so, the instructor should be telling the learner exactly what they did wrong doing this manoeuvre directly afterwards. We all need to learn how to ... [more]

Cheap quality cycle parking - they don't seem very old but the plastic has cracked already and it won't be long before this will be causing litter and look dreadful. Stainless steel racks would have been a much wiser investment.

A classic case of "built it *poorly* and they *won't* come".

Fairfield West looking south. Local NIMBYs claim that this is a 'perfectly good' cycle lane and that a path across the middle of the Fairfield is not needed. Because parking is allowed on the west side of the road and the remaining road spa ... [more]

Since http://www.cyclestreets.net/location/11854/ this route has been updated. And very badly. Bishops Road is a quiet cul-de-sac and this is almost at the end of it. Passing traffic will be virtually nil and will be very slow. Howeve ... [more]

Kissing gate is only just long enough for a bicycle, tricky to navigate, i have seen elderly struggle, other access nearest, very very narrow and long, almost impossible to get through, impossible for bikes with shopping, box/cargo bikes an ... [more]

See clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sRh_YG0-n4 At the turning into Tennis Court Road, LN02 RTX decided to make an overtaking manoeuvre that effectively drove straight at me. I had nowhere to go as I had traffic to the left of me ... [more]

See clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtAsouY7_Yg Essentially this is AF11 HAE passing to close, breaking "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 But, I'd suggest (quite clea ... [more]

See clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D--jtPt7ZFs Not sure how to handle this car park entrance. I have no idea why the Landrover is back from the car in front, are they leaving the cyclelane clear or just not quite up to the car in ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeosNOYiyiQ This driver doesn't give me or the other cyclist enough space. Again, breaking "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=la1IsQi-9bM I've learnt to avoid this section of road within a metre or so of the verge as it's very rough and leads to steering issues. This puts me in the middle of the road. Cars just ass ... [more]
