[UPDATE: First the sign, then the sand disappeared. I hope the latter was cleared up by humans rather than dispersed by wind, rain and/or the movement of people over it. But another instance has appeared on the opposite corner: #186293.] … [more]

[Image taken 8.9.22] Wigginton Road, York. Large - very long - vehicles come in and out of here. They can take some time to be able to exit onto Wigginton Road. While they wait they obstruct the dropped kerbs. The ones that turn in do so … [more]

[Update April 2022: I noticed recently the sign has finally been removed (from behind the railings, lying on the ground). It was not doing its job. It was simply litter and like litter was attracting more rubbish and making the area less … [more]

[Image taken 4.8.21] Bootham Terrace, York. The signs these ‘secured’ have gone but the sandbags remain. This is irresponsible. The raw materials have a cost, the manufacturing and transport have costs. The bags are a trip hazard. They do … [more]

Washed out sand on the ramp down and under the Derek Dooley Way bridge.

Harling Drove Road regional cycle network route 30, impassable on a bike

Solway Firth Panorama Location: Scotland, United Kingdom NCN 7

Sandy path

Flooded cycle lane and footway. Looks like sand may have blocked drains.

Cycle bypass to mini-roundabout and traffic-calming for those going straight ahead, while NCN 7 is signed to the right for the Low Green path. The footway is also signed as shared-use. Take your pick.

This section of the coastal cycleway is permanently covered by the dune for about 200 metres. Hard going - even to push the bike.

The beach at Exmouth.

Quite sandy bridleways - difficult for the small wheels of our Bromptons.
