Good covered Sheffield stands at this industrial site.

Modal filter on an industrial site and 5mph limit for cyclists - at which speed most of us would be wobbling pretty badly.

Approaching Sawston

Very icy surface on some patches of the cycleway between Sawston and Stapleford, particularly in the shadows. The road was being gritted but not yet the cycleway. Cambridge Road, Sawston

Access to new development

Two (count them, two!) Sheffield stands at the new library and community hub in Sawston - but maybe some more will appear when it's finished.

Permeability on Old Forge Way, Sawston - but unfortunately it's totally cut off from all the surrounding streets.

Jealously guarded car parking at Sawston Parish Council but just a couple of wheelbenders for cyclists.

This cycleway does not give way to driveways - these cycle markers should be enough for all users.

A decent new cycleway in poppy season.

Quick Quiz! Which environment would you like to ride in? The wildlife decimated, shredded-litter strewn dry one on the left? Or the wild meadow-like, diverse, flora and fauna rich one on the right? https://t.co/Id7QNzljdK

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.)

Right-turn arrow needed for the NCN route.

The new crossing of the Sawston bypass - barrier-free, but still two-stage.

New cycle track getting overgrown.

Route for cyclists joining the cycleway beside the A1301 from the Sawston road, rather than using the new two-stage crossing.

The new cycle crossing from Sawston

The new cycle crossing to Sawston, now with enough space in the central refuge (but what kind of barriers are going to appear?).

Unless yo uknow about the cycleroute, there's no way to know that this is the last place to get on it. No signage! See http://radwagon.co.uk/2012/06/wimpole-folly-and-three-cams.html

The cycleroute goes up onto the pavement on the right hand side. No signage! See http://radwagon.co.uk/2012/06/wimpole-folly-and-three-cams.html

Start of the new Sawston to Babraham cycle route.

Start of the new Sawston to Babraham cycle route - no help for eastbound cyclists crossing to the cycle route.

Does this mean cyclists are meant to be on the footway? (partly obstructed by drivers waiting to collect children from school)

Is this meant to be a shared-use path?? There's absolutely no indication that cyclists crossing from Spicers should rejoin the road.
