A route sign (if you can read the small writing) pointing cyclists the wrong way along a one-way road, marked as 'No Entry'. The 'West City Way' emblem has its own separate post.

No cycle facilities around this side of the roundabout, although there is a route provided in the business park to the left.

No crossing from shared footway/cycleway to sports facilities across the road.

NCN7 alongside the Clydeside Expressway, with the right-hand verge encroaching onto the path.

The footway on the north side of Castlebank Street resumes, but is fenced off just west of the toucan crossing (as seen in #173896). That doesn't stop people using it, and a worn desire line is visible in the grass verge too. NCN7 crosses … [more]

The northern footway on South Street comes to another break, and again there is a desire line worn in the grass. NCN7 is on the opposite shared footway. Meanwhile, a line of car showroom flags marks the course of the demolished former … [more]

South Street, with worn desire line in the grass verge where there is a missing footway, a speed camera that has been out of use for a long time, a traffic counter, and NCN7 on the footway across the road.

The footway on this side of South Street resumes, with the worn desire line continuous from #173806. The NCN7 cycle route on the opposite footway is not good enough to attract these two to use it.

The toucan crossing is used to follow the cycle route which continues on the footway of the other side of South Street, but there is a clear desire line for staying on this side. There is a short break before the footway resumes at Ferryden … [more]

I don't know what the purpose of that bar attached to the underside of the bridge is, but there's a bit missing now. I'm sure the edge of the NCN7 cycle path next to the Clydeside Expressway was straight when it was installed, but is now … [more]

The first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway from the toucan crossings at the motorway junction is up beyond the roundabout at the housing on the left (see #169533).

The lack of sweeping on the canal path means the LED catseyes are starting to disappear into the extended verge.

Baldock Road: Keeping the verges clear of stored motor vehicles using a physical barrier.

Roadside cycleway.

I was surprised to find that the path from London Avenue does not connect across Springfield Road to the path past the velodrome on the same alignment. A crossing is needed here.

The Abbotsford Link uses the not exactly wide footway on the south side of Tweedbank Drive, before crossing to join NCN1 on the north side at the toucan crossing.

No motor vehicles or cycles on mown verge - Swanshurst Lane, Moseley Location: Springfield, Birmingham City (England, United Kingdom) Seen from the 11C bus stop opposite. Not far from what was the Sarehole area. So many grass verges all … [more]

Space for motoring, but only one bus at the bus stop at a time please! And no-one will want to walk to the bus stop from this direction. Someone did cycle along the dual carriageway just after I'd taken the photo, in all the proper cycling … [more]

Space for motoring. Even the pedestrian infrastructure is pretty flaky, leading to people walking along the verge.

Remarkably fussy sign commanding that even cycles must not be placed on this verge. 'No motor vehicles, cycles on mown verge'

Barton village - lots of poorly used road space

Cracks and steps in surface

Comberton Road junction - acres of tarmac to cross and an alignment that encourages fast traffic speeds. Approaching traffic is directly behind you as you approach the crossing and people enter the junction at speed. I have seen two … [more]

Crossing the M11(N) slip road - poor visibility. The road alignment encourages speed, and makes it difficult for people waiting to cross to anticipate which exit a car might be heading for.

M11 bridge - some cyclists prefers the road to the narrow footway conversion

M11 bridge - path is much too narrow. See how far people ride away from the edge barrier, and how close that puts them to the kerb.

M11 bridge approach - See how much clearance people give each other and how close that puts them to the path edge. This path could do with being wider here, and is much to narrow across the bridge itself.

Gratuitous give way markings at farm entrance

You have to give way to traffic directly behind you - very difficult to anticipate and see.

M11 Coton Rd roundabout - using the main roundabout in preference to the cycle track Location: England, United Kingdom M11 Coton Rd roundabout - using the main roundabout in preference to the cycle track

M11 Coton Rd roundabout crossing - busy, difficult, too wide, poor alignment

Barton Road cycleway - cracks in surface

Barton Rd - cracks in surface

Barton Rd - cracks in surface

Barton Rd segregated cycle path - using the "pedestrian" side to pass as the path is too narrow

Barton Rd cycle path - congestion outside Wolfson College

Barton Rd cycle path - difficult crossing at Grange Rd. Busy, poor visibility, obstructed by emerging vehicles.

Barton Rd cycle path - crossing at Newnham corner

Cars parked on the verge of the cycle path at the mausoleum.

Old sign suggesting parking on grass verge not permitted by byelaw.

The curses of the wheelie bin blocking the footway and cars being stored on grass verges. Many years later bollards were introduced to stop verges being used for storing vehicles, see #49036.
