Can't be good to feel like a mug for following official cycle route signs. This is part of the Wirral Circular trail in West Kirby. For me it's irritating, those with mobility issues or nonstandard cycles are simply excluded. We can do bett ... [more]

Signage on the waterfront path at Woodside Ferry Terminal

Signage at Woodside Ferry Terminal

Signage on the Wirral Circular Trail, on a shared-use footway with fairly elderly paving slabs. On the left a Mersey Tunnel entrance, where walking and cycling is not allowed.

The opposite side of the horrendous Rock Ferry Bypass crossing on the Wirral Circular Trail (see #53837). No dropped kerb, poor sightlines, no assistance in crossing the bypass itself.

A horrendous road crossing of the Rock Ferry Bypass next to a roundabout. A lorry driver stopped short in the inside lane to let me cross, but car drivers in the outside lane didn't do likewise.

Route sign on approach to junction, and clearly visible, unlike #53835

Sign only visible from one direction, in the other direction it is hidden by a tree

Sign for Port Sunlight station

Having successfully given way at the works entrance on #53818, cyclists are then told to dismount to cross the road, via a caged central island.

Give Way at works entrance

Signage to Eastham Country Park. The route straight on is the rougher, more steeply graded riverside path.

The barrier dividing the car park from the path in Eastham Country Park has a small gap near the end to allow people through

Traffic calming by chicane in Eastham

Signage for the Wirral Circular Trail between Hooton and Eastham

A poor quality ramp at end of railway path up to road, next to Hooton station

Signage at junction with railway path in Wirral Country Park, plus information board

Cycleway next to seafront footway

Exit for Neston, but also for connection to NCN568 to the Welsh Border

This gate easy to get around without hindering path users too much, but enough to slow users down at road crossing

Separate signage for the cycling and walking path and horse-riding path, at Wirral Country Park

A barrier across the cycle path at Cubbins Green. However, a good point is the parallel segregated horse-riding path across the fence from the cycle path.

The least-worst bit of the Sandy Lane cycle path access

Apart from a short section at each end where you need to cross the sandy beach, this path is rideable on most bikes

This bit of the Wirral Circular Trail is meant for pedestrians only

Pedestrian, cycle and horse signage in Meols

Concrete seafront path

Path along coast next to beach

Messy, signs obscuring each other, counter will only count those that don't take shortcut, all poorly thought out

Cycleway above walkway (see also #52963)

The cycle route takes a detour to run on top of the sea wall

Potential for conflict between cyclists and telescope users

A short bit of sand to cross between two sections of concrete cycle track

Transition at the end of King's Parade

Marked cycleway along King's Parade

Marine Promenade, New Brighton

A short break in the cycle track at Egremont

Seacombe Promenade, with marked cycleway

Seacombe Promenade, with 'No Motor Vehicles' signs

Route through ferry terminal car park

The waterfront at Birkenhead

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign approaching a road junction on the Wirral Circular Trail

"No unauthorised vehicles - Ground unsafe" "No unauthorised persons" Does the Wirral Circular Trail sign authorise cycles and people to pass these other signs?

Cyclists must have good eyesight compared to drivers!
