Segregated cycleway blocked by parked cars.

Busway cyclepath, Cambridge Assessment frontage, northern section. Verge and gravel infill by cyclepath - no problem to increase path width!

Busway cyclepath, Cambridge Assessment frontage, central section. Fence protects rock cages supporting difference in levels of up to about 1.5m. This would need to be stabilised before the path could be widened about 1.5m to boundary fenc ... [more]

Busway cyclepath, Cambridge Assessment frontage, northern section. Fence protects rock cages as ground falls away from the path level (to a maximum of about 1.5m. Widening cyclepath at this point would require stabilisation of this wall.

Busway cyclepath, Cambridge Assessment frontage, southern section. About 1.5m space available to increase width of cycleway to boundary fence.

Busway cyclepath looking north from corner of Clare College sports ground and along University Press frontage. Plenty of room to widen cycle-way.

Busway cyclepath looking north at the corner of Clare College sports ground. A culvert inhibits easy widening of the cyclepath at this point.

Busway north of Long Road underpass. With moving of light pillars and cutting of hedge at least 1.5m could be added to width of busway path.

Trumpington cycleway at Long Road underpass. To improve sight wys and prepare for re-opening of southern access from Long Road the line of the path should be moved away from the busway to permit sighting through the tunnel on approach.

Trumpington busway where a culvertnarrows options for widening cycle-path at this point.

Trumpington Busway crossing Hobson Avenue. Electrical switchboxes on the edge of the cycle-path would require a lot of work to move for path widening.

Trumpington busway behind Fostar Road looking NE. A short section wheree the graded margin slopes down to the path. Could be dug back and stabilised with rock-cages and light pillars moved to add width.

Trumpington busway looking NE under Shelford Road Bridge. With removal of lighting pillar 1m could be added to widthof path, even under bridge.

Trumpington Busway looking NE, behind Cranleigh Close. Over 1m could easily be added to the width of the path by surfacing up to the cages.

Trumpington busway path looking back to Hauxton Road bridge. There is no possibility of widening the path under the bridge but minimal works could add 1m width.

Tight curve on a steep gradient entering the busway path at Trumpington P&R. Could be improved by following line of busway?

There is one already but needs another one outside 26 and 28 charring cross road

At last the roadworks (with Cyclists Dismount and go somewhere unspecified signs) on the A30 have finished and there's a new rail/bus interchange - cyclists are told to dismount to cross to the station, and there's no indication at all that ... [more]

There's a Pushchair Park on St Michael's Mount but no cycle parking

Entrance to segregated cycleway blocked by parked taxi.

Cycle parking needed here.

Cycle parking needed here.

A new sign (in the distance) marking out Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant - but no real cycle parking.

My flatmate and I moved this location 2 weeks ago. But There is no space for our bikes. We don't know what we do and we exactly need it. Thank you

Bikes dumped outside a neighbours house after the council ignored my abandoned bike reports for months. Note also in the background: motor vehicles parked across the footway and bins causing obstruction.

@GoBikeGlasgow University Avenue this week : a @GlasgowCC cycle route @UofGlasgow what about the #vulnerableroaduser https://t.co/LdiKcc19HS

Covered cycle parking but using troughs, which make it difficult to secure the bikes.

Can “security” vans stop where ever they like? This guy claims he can, while doing so he is blocking access to Gordon St counter-way cycle lane. @GlasgowCC @polscotrpu ?? https://t.co/EcNWYhbFIf

The recently redesigned Sevenways roundabout has some minor improvements for pedestrians, but on the road it's a very different matter. Very few road users pay any attention to the road markings and choose to move straight over them, leadi ... [more]

Planning department have added a condition of bike parking for change of use from retail to office. 700sq m office could do with at least 3 bike bays

Opposite Is a number of shops bars and restaurants but nowhere suitable to lock bikes safely. This location is tucked away from main road but safe place to leave bike while visiting local shops

These staggered bollards are a much better solution than the gate that previously occupied this position, but the gravel surface combined with the steep slope makes passing through them a dangerous prospect. The new gravel surface should b ... [more]

Cycle parking needed here.

Outside Pineapple Studios and serving Mercer walk. There are not enough cycle spaces for this new shopping area. I regularly attend the dance studios and am always having to attach my bike to lamp posts.

A50 bikeway impassable again today @LeicsCountyHall One day someone is going to get killed walking or cycling in the dual carriageway here, and I will dig out every time I reported this over the last 9 years! #secondclasscitizens #stopkil ... [more]

A severe barrier on the path between Duncryne Place, Bishopbriggs and Ashgill Road, Glasgow.

Randomly placed bollards leading up to the main event.

Intermittent painted cycle lanes on the 40mph A88 Bellsdyke Road, a signed diversion route for the M876 motorway.

Unfinished trenching work at the Kelpies Marina.

Molehills in the asphalt?

Four ways, only two signposted, and a desire line becoming apparent.

Slow for a sodding gate post? Surely priority signs like those on the adjacent road would be more appropriate.

A barrier over the HArTT cycle path at Carron Road, and a diagonal crossing over to the next section of path.

Signs in Bainsford. I can't think why Carron and Stenhousemuir are only for pedestrians, or why they didn't name the hospital. Imagine walking three and a quarter miles and it turns out to be the wrong one! The single-sided HArTT cycle r ... [more]

Although the HArTT cycle path has been given a raised crossing (see #108674) and there is no road access across it, there are also no dropped kerbs to allow convenient access onto the cycle path for anyone living nearby. Some of the signs a ... [more]

No dropped kerb at the start of the path on Garbett Place. No signage either, even though this is part of the HArTT cycle route.

No dropped kerb on the path from Carmuirs Park football ground car park to Mansionhouse Road. Mansionhouse Road could be developed as a cycle link between the canal and Camelon.

No properly dropped kerb at the steps and ramp (ramp out of sight to the right) up to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at the Carmuirs Park football ground car park.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath near the Falkirk Wheel, but which cycle route is it that ends here? NCN754 continues to Clydebank. The ramp to the right leads to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park.

An access ramp and a barrier (with a BMX style bypass) on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

A barrier at the Cumbernauld Road bridge and crossing on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but no asphalt for the bypass gap.

The end of the cycle path from Cumbernauld Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, but neither a dropped kerb to get onto the carriageway or a shared footway in either direction. Allandale to the left, Castlecary (and the quieter Walton Road to A ... [more]

A signpost within Palacerigg Country Park, but no mention of Cumbernauld's cycle route 2a to Abronhill which starts around here.

Negotiating the path down from Cumbernauld Road to join the Strathkelvin Railway Path. Still as narrow and awkward as ever.

Disabled tricycle - I have brought a disabled tricycle but it’s very wide and very different for me to take inside my home flat a 4 Parliment hill NW3 2sy. It is also plain full as I have 7 steps to the front door. Please can I leave it o ... [more]

Cycle parking needed here.

York Road, Waterloo, SE1

There are approx 15 cyclists in the street. We have applied to Lambeth Cycle Hangar but they say there is not enough demand, even though every single cycle hangar within several miles has a long waiting list

Shop visitors/workers need somewhere to lock their bikes. There is plenty of space on the pavement here for several stands.

End of May 2019: This abandoned bike is still there in the CyclePoint see ... #102763

Busy intersections

Hi LCC it's Suzy from Lambeth, we are updating our website and would like to have your map as our cycle stand suggestion map. I just wanted to check that the info comes to us and if you could confirm who it is sent to at Lambeth, that would ... [more]

@cyclestreets Spean St, Glasgow - the pedestrian/cycle path is effectively just a residents' car park. @SustransScot @citycyclists @GoBikeGlasgow @LStreetsScot and while I am here > @StewartMcDonald @glasgowc @MMorganSNP @policescotland ... [more]

Loads of space in commercial area next to Dockley Road. Current businesses don't need so much parking space. Better to put secure bike parking on it.

Corner of Ness Street and Frean Street has space for bike storage

Encourages cycling with a pleasant destination - coffee and cake.

Great incentive for cycling to be able to ride to the forest and walk among the trees on a lovely day. Bonus tea and cake before heading home.

The tree roots have got so bad that there's been a collective move by cyclists to riding on the grass

New cycle stands on Station Road, Cambridge, still not in use a month after they appeared.

This is a residential road, the portion of which highlighted serves flats, most of which have no outdoor space or access to bike storage. The higlighted area is a wide area of pavement, directly outside a pub.

This is a residential road, the portion of which highlighted serves flats, most of which have no outdoor space or access to bike storage.

Cul de sac of 17 houses. A lot of us cycle

There is no secure parking in the local area to encourage people to cycle

Bike stands in the area are full. Pavement does not have a great deal of footfall and is big enough to accommodate bike stands without blocking pathway.

Outside busy pharmacy and corner shop 99 Kennington Lane

The cycle route crosses so many lanes on this trunk road intersection - it's not obvious which toucan crossing buttons and lights to use.

The railings on this bride seem a bit low and permeable for a cycle route.

Four chicanes along this stretch which drops to the underpass level.

Poorly signed No Entry in Corfu - it seems to only operate from 0730 to 1730, when coaches are arriving at the Achilleion Palace. In any case an exemption for cycling would be good.

Bendbow Rise underpass

The barriers and bollards at this curious road layout seem over fussy.

Vans might be alright! Suitable for cars Light vans at risk 2.6m 8'-9"

Traffic chaos outside Wellacre school. Many children ride their bikes to and from this school, and lots more would like to join them, but for scenes like this. The road should be closed to through traffic and a clearway should be implemen ... [more]

Pelican crossing - with two cyclists waiting to cross New Parks Boulevard.

There is poor on street cycle parking options on knollys road. If you live in a flat where you don't have access to the front garden/yard of your property, it's really frustrating. You have to battle over the few lampposts with motorcycles ... [more]

Road closure with no cycle provison, Benitses, Corfu

No secure cycle parking for whole flat block

Anti motorbike barrier

Anti motorcycling barriers on this narrow cycleway above the Great Central railway.

Fussy anti-motorcycling barriers that seem to annoy almost everyone.

Amazingly pointless and stupid barriers blocking access to a useful cycle route to Hollins Green. Who is this supposed to benefit?

While not a cycleway (oddly it ends a few metres east of this location), this hedge has been allowed to completely block the footway, which is about three paving slabs wide. Now, not even one paving slab can be walked on. Despite repeated ... [more]

More secure cycles sheds are needed here as waiting on the waiting list takes very long. Been over a year and still no space.

Lots of scooters at Corfu Airport (just 2km from Corfu Town) and no cycle parking

Wyndham Road is in a central location, with a school on the road and another nearby. It is also part of the cycle super highway route. It has many residents but no secure cycle storage. Given parking is so difficult, giving residents the op ... [more]

post office, cafes, bar and restaurant on this stretch of road in need of cycle parking

No drop kerb at angled access to staff cycle parking. Likely to cause falls.

Missing drop kerb so cycleway entirely inacessible.

No drop kerb so cycleway inaccessible.

No drop kerb so inaccessible and narrow for shared use.
