Maybe it's because I don't enter Speirs Wharf from Craighall Road very often, but I almost cycled down the cobbled slope since I was this time going to turn left down the ramp to Garscube Road. The layout here could be better. The steps ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. Two issues. Problem 1. The cycle parking is nowhere near the trolleys or the supermarket entrance/exit - see: #167030. Problem 2. The cycle parking is on a slope. I need both hands to load my c ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. On a slope or if racks are too close to an object, cycles can't stay upright and topple. This makes loading/unloading difficult. Here it means the cycle takes up more space between Sheffields t ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. The racks are on a perceptible slope. My cycle slips and won't stay upright. (See also: #166690) For a further consequence of the slope see: #166691. For generic observations about the cycle pa ... [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. The large amount of space between the racks and the car parking means people can park longer cycles here. This cycle, for example, is 190cm long. At the widest point - the handlebars - it is ar ... [more]

[Image taken 4.2.21] The Folk Hall ( is a long, attractive building. Even into 2020, access from the road, for example for people with cycles or using mobility scooters, was poor. It wasn't clear how y ... [more]

[Image taken 22.12.20] Lidl, James Street, York. The typical cycle in York I see is equipped for practicality and utilitarian use: panniers or other luggage carrying capacity that remain in situ at all times, ditto at least one child seat. ... [more]

The HArTT cycle route goes down this steep slope to the Union Canal (see #101156). A new sensibly graded ramp has been built to the right (see #101153).

No signs to say this is a shared-use footway, but according to my map from the council, this is where Cumbernauld Cycle Network routes 4 and 4a are to be found. The roundabout appears to be built on a different plane from the rest of the ... [more]

01_2016_041 Cycle route alongside the A27, near Chichester, January 2016

Before long the asphalt ends and the path alongside the railway line gets hillier.

Clearly not a purpose-built cycleway. The path heads up a steep slope onto the former railway embankment.

Steep slope out of underpass beneath Greenfaulds Road.

Steep and slippery approach to triple barrier at foot of ramp constructed under Safer Routes to Schools programme.

Perhaps a bit late to be telling cyclists coming down the hill in King's Park to go slow!

Path along former railway embankment, with dip then steep slope to scramble down to get to woodlands track. Hopefully this stretch will be improved shortly.

New riverside path between Richmond Park and Gorbals which is mostly fine, but soft surface is suffering from some washing out on slope at rowing club building. [UPDATE: Now surfaced with asphalt, see #88172]
