A slightly wobbly but otherwise usable track between Heywood and Rochdale Road. The views are very nice.

The surface is a little forgotten but it's quite a nice ride along the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal. Access needs to be improved though.

Hasty Lane: Once in the tunnel, however, the surface is much improved. This could be a valuable route if it were better taken care of.

Ironworks - new housing estate being built at the site of the old Mill Road Depot. Scandalously, this will not be a low-car development.

This is the second supermarket in a row where I've seen bikes on top of the freezer cabinets...

Bikes in the Classic Cars Museum, Punta del Este, Uruguay

Where the food delivery riders wait for jobs in the old city of Montevideo - outside MacDonalds. (Elsewhere in the city they tend to use motorbikes or scooters.)

Overgrowth being cut back along this popular walking and cycling route.

In case anyone is tempted to cycle along this footpath - don't!

Article on cargo bikes in Bordeaux

A perfectly rideable but very steep route.

The surface here doesn't look great but it's actually nice and smooth to ride on. You can get some good speed here.

Early autumn heather in full bloom

Adding this simply to show that choosing this route to cycle along would be a very bad idea. The north side is just about cycleable - but the south side is nigh impossible and very difficult even to walk on.

Don't enter the railway line to Accrington here - enter it further northwest! The path here is very narrow and unsuitable for cycling.

A view of the very tired old footbridge over the former railway.

Follow signposts and narrow hairpen gravel path down to a lovely playpark in St Fillans.

A steep climb on Redbrook Lane NCN4 My first post hope I've done this right!

Formerly electric folding bike - it spent too long in salty water and the motor has gone.

Really nice if path could link up with road

Nice little pond

Not suitable for cycling (at least not for a while) but there's an old footpath alongside Hawke Brook that's been used for generations to gain access from Clowne Road, to Church Road, although it's a lot less used these days than 30 years a ... [more]

Old path from Clowne Road to Church Road than runs alongside Hawke Brook, a lot more overgrown and disused than it was in the 80s!

Former Shuttlewood water treatment works. Possibly a way of forming a connection to the old Oxcroft Branch Line and then onto Seymour from the Oxcroft/Bolsover area

Site of former Shuttlewood water treatment works, all been flattened now, but the old track to the site remains, and could provide access to Mill Lane/ the former oxcroft disposal point site.

Old lane up to Bentinck Road. The terraced houses were built for Oxcroft Colliery, and the lane was used by the miners to get to work until the colliery closed in the 1970s.

Trail on Bolsover pit tip

Bolsover Colliery tip, some nice trails on here, plus great views of the Castle

Footpath through trees

Blind Lane, quite picturesque with stream down side of road

Footpath from Hill top /Blind Lane, looking towards Shuttlewood

Footpath between hill top/Woodhouse Lane and Chesterfield Road

Footpath leading to Chesterfield Road, Shuttlewood

Well used path between fields, off of the official public footpath

Track parallel with Woodhouse Lane but behind the tree line.

Drainage channels under Woodhouse Lane. There is/was an underpass here, it was filled in after the landscaping of the former pit tip was completed.

Photos of Albanian police with bikes in the Bunk'art 2 museum, Tirana

Why Shköder, Albania, is a cycling city - bikes were introduced by the Swedish consul in 1907. The only real infrastructure is plentiful parking, but that's enough for a strong cycling culture to survive.

Oh the irony! A Turkish airline suggests going to the Netherlands to enjoy cycling. Because virtually no-one cycles in Istanbul. (Approximate location)

Church Road looking towards Shuttlewood Road

Church Road towards Stanfree. An old lane in need of some TLC

Church Road, a decent surface here

Path on Church Road, needs improving to make it easier to cycle on.

Overgrown pathway on Church Road, flatter than the proper path which has deep ruts but needs some TLC to make it easier to bike on. Unfortunately this lane suffers due to motorbike use.

Path along hawke brook used by local people, would be nice to see it as a proper walk

Track leading up towards A632 /arkwright /bridge. Not currently accessible on the bike, but could be a great alternative in time.

Trail looking towards Duckmanton

Looking towards the busy A632 and well constructed bridge made for the opencasting

Clearance under bridge on busy road. There's steep banks of earth on either side of the bridge though

Bridge at busy A632 road, a good few feet of clearance under the bridge, on both sides. The bridge could be opened up and used as part of a cycle trail.

Trail to Arkwright

Access onto Longcourse Lane
