Secure parking preferably

Cycle parking needed here.

One of many very poorly secured racks at the Cambridge railway station CyclePoint.

In the photograph I'm on the cycle path looking north. To continue I have to turn and cross the road, then turn again. Why can't the cycle path simply run across on a diagonal line to cross at the same point, with simple markings to alert ... [more]

This cycleway is quickly being eroded by water. This is why we should use sealed surfaces on cycle routes - not gravel.

This cycleway is fast becoming unusable due to water damage. A sealed surface here would have ensured that the path remained in perfect condition. Why skimp on such things if you're just going to have to repair them later?

New cycleway across Cutacre Country Park. Loose gravel surface so be careful when turning.

The unsealed surface on this new cycleway is already beginning to show signs of water damage.

A typical sight throughout Britain - if a car can't drive along it, let's not bother looking after it. This could be part of a good route between Tyldesley and Bolton but its poor condition renders it an unattractive proposition. Further ... [more]

Everything at Sebastien Bras, a gastronomic restaurant with rooms, is incredibly stylish except for the cycle parking (2 e-MTBs are available for guests).

Cycle parking needed here.

abandoned unused and unusable locked bikes block access to this Sheffield bike stand

No cycle parking at the otherwise good museum in Salles-la-Source

There's plenty of room for some cycle parking between the trees at the back of this car park.

Northampton

Abandoned city bike racks at Northampton Station.

Double decker / two tier racks at Northampton Station. I think they’ve been placed too close together as the fully extended rack illustrates.

Cars parked in eastbound advisory cycle lane and on pavement, Roman Road in Bethnal Green

No right of way on this shared use footway where pedestrians and cyclists are expected to give way to motor vehicles entering and exiting the petrol station.

This road was spoiled for us by close passing impatient motor traffic. We took the recommendation of this sign to turn right towards Holmer - Grimmer Road!

An unpleasant crossing point of Hereford's race track of a ring road. At least this is traffic signal controlled and there's some attempt at cycle markings.

An unpleasant crossing point of Hereford's race track of a ring road. At least this is traffic signal controlled and there's some attempt at cycle markings.

This is a bit of a dead end for cycling as there's not a nice way to cross the race track that is this ring road. The subway is No Cycling. The dual carriageway has a railing preventing at grade crossing, and anyway there is aggressive spe ... [more]

Residents on this estate have been struggling to find space to lock up their bikes. We have received letters from Southwark Council asking us to remove bikes from communal areas in our building because these are a hazard, but so far no alte ... [more]

Very narrow shared-use route, Sarlat

This lovely pedestrian route is rather spoiled by motor vehicles passing through rather assertively on the narrow road from left to right and might catch out the unwary.

There is nowhere safe and secure to park a bike in this area. I suggest Kensal Rise station and Kensal Green station as a minimum. There could also be secure parking spaces at the end of the residential streets for all the people who live i ... [more]

TWO years on and there is still no way to cycle from Runcorn to Widnes during weekdays.Work has overrun on the old bridge and cycling is prohibited on the new one - #103166

The tarmac finishes here

Sign directs the Bridgewater Way onto the right hand fork - which leads to some steps #88334. It is far more sensible to keep to the newly tarmacked towpath.

Secure cycle storage needed for residents on the street as there have been some attempted robberies when chained to railings.

The footway is totally blocked, so everyone walks on the cycleway

Come on Salford, this isn't good enough. The surface would be fine were it not completely overgrown and almost unusable.

Absolutely gigantic oversize barriers lead to a very poor quality gravel path, before you can access the better quality asphalt path that takes you into the industrial estate. These need to be removed.

Cyclists on the verge

I applaud the Newnham Bakery taking over a parking space for cycle parking, but I wish they'd installed stands which actually support bikes - it's not that well used as a result.

Monmouth Road

Monmouth turn

Hereford to Ross

Hereford shared use on Ross Road.

Hereford shared use on Ross Road.

Crazy not to provide a dropped kerb on this new link to Oxford station

Crack in shared-use footway at bus stop.

The cycle stands at the new Co-op in Longstanton are too close to the wall - my bike fell over.

Clear line of desire where the busway failed to provide a direct link from Over to the maintenance track - people are clearly carrying bikes across the busway here.

I would suggest at least one or two hangars as this seems to be a completely dead zone on the Hangar map with CycleHoop!

A cycle lane on an already hostile road environment blocked by a taxi driver. The cycle lane leads to a slip onto the shared-use area at the toucan crossing.

The sign for Little Horton and Marshfields on NCN66 is at odds with the one in the distance straight ahead (seen at #110463). Maybe you can go both ways.

The stainless steel sign for NCN66 at Bridge Street is very difficult to spot, and directs cyclists the wrong way down a one-way street.

A taxi parked in the contraflow cycle lane on Broadway.

Despite the crossing at #110453 being a toucan crossing, the next crossing encountered is just a pedestrian crossing. Nelson Street is straight ahead and the first section of footway is shared-use.

The shared footway takes people away from Manchester Road and over to Nelson Street, whether they want that or not. It seems some people ride across the grass so presumably they wish to stay with Manchester Road.

A van driver pulled over the toucan crossing when he had a green light, but inevitably it turned red before the junction ahead cleared, leaving him blocking the crossing for users.

A sign for NCN66 pointing in a different direction to the blue Sustrans arrow sticker.

'No Entry' and 'Recommended Route for Cycles' at Hustlergate. Which is it? I didn't notice any obvious signage for the NCN66 turn here.

A discontinuous cycle lane on Lower Kirkgate.

A gate and A-frame barrier blocking the way to the National Cycle Network at the far end of Sandal & Agbrigg station car park.

Wheel twister cycle parking outside the Co-op in Ilkley town centre.

Cycling about town in Ilkley.

Tiny cycle signs for Pontefract town centre on the A645 at Gillygate.

A bus gate on Kirkgate, which doesn't seem to be enforced very well. Also, some cycle parking on a traffic island.

Cyclists to join the triple lane carriageway of Wakefield Road.

An unusual sign for a line-segregated footway. The cycle route crosses four crossings to get to Wakefield Road... #110661 Some of the toucan crossings do not have call boxes on both the left and right hand sides of the crossing.

A road with 4 then 5 driving lanes and a painted cycle lane, with an overhead gantry sign. Must be suitable for cycling... #110658

This is perhaps not how the Dutch would approach a crossing of a main dual carriageway. Give Way to the traffic island?

A car driver parked on the contraflow cycle lane in Broadway, and another in the bus stop.

No Vehicles and Cyclists Dismount on Foundry Hill leading to a toucan crossing across Main Street (at #110745). There were no such signs at the other end of the lane. A dropped kerb could also be provided.

Pavement hopping cycle infrastructure coming into Bingley town centre.

Park wherever you like in Britannia Street.

A nib blocking access to a short cycle lane which in turn leads into the back of parked cars.

A bit dusty and gravelly here but the surface is fine. You have to be careful when turning though as you can easily slide.

No through road for cars so a very quiet residential road which regularly has vacant parking bays to put a Cyclehoop BikeHangar in for 6 bikes Pedestrian access through from Chamberlayne Road so would be useful to cyclists in a number of n ... [more]

Vital footway space taken by bikes and cars.

There's a shared-use path alongside the A1123, but it changes sides several times without any kind of crossing, which makes it fairly useless.

The surfacing on the towpath has now ended, unsurfaced for a number of km

Extremely low bridge over the canal

Bike parking at NT Shaw's Corner. Hedge on one side, wheelie bins and parked cars on the other. Very tight to get bikes in and out - situation not ideal.

Lensfield Road is always in terrible condition.

There are cyclehoop lockers on Fletching Road which have been full for years. I've been on the waiting list since they were installed. I live in a 1st floor flat with 2 others people and we all have bikes which we have to lift. I am using m ... [more]

Suggested location for Bikehangar secure storage unit

Limited headroom, width, and steps under the A6011.

Very narrow path between the two crossing points inside the central reservation

Narrow paths either side of the A6011 crossing on a curve in the road, no markings to indicate people are crossing on this busy road

cyclists must give way in order to reach this very short cycle lane hugging dangerously close to stopped busses in the blind spot - then give way again at the other end. All while the general traffic lane sails serenely past. Utterly bonker ... [more]

The newish A394 Helston bypass, with no cycling facilities

The newish A394 Helston bypass, with no cycling facilities

This needs to be opened up for cycling as well as pedestrians.

The worst anti-cycling barrier I’ve ever seen, erected by @TelfordWrekin. Those sharp corners are about at eye height on a road bike and approached around a bend on a down slope. https://t.co/zc0VzdUU1F

Received a torrent of abuse from drivers today when riding 300m on the A40 because of this ”sign” blocking the bike path. @OxfordshireCC, why are your contractors doing this? Location between Witney & Barnard Gate. Cc: @cllrbartington h ... [more]

Needed for flats with no outside space with safe cycle storage

Woeful lack of bike parking outside Brixton Village.

Great spot outside the park.

Bikehoop would be great here.

General traffic lane has priority over traffic entering the road from the right, but the cycle lane gives way.

Cycle lane channels cyclists to the left hand side of a left hand filter lane. Are they trying to engineer left hooks?

Blackberry lane Aug 19, heading north. Public footpath only (cycling not permitted, or really possible). Not the most overgrown section - Just north of the farm in Toot Baldwin gambles and nettles covered the path.

Cycle parking needed here.

Ah, National Cycle Network in Wandsworth, London. How we love you so. You have to be quite strong to wheel a bike up the ramp to this gate and then push through. Lovely stuff from @wandbc https://t.co/cUcMXLayfA Similar in Cambridge, see ... [more]

The towpath surface on this section of the Leeds Liverpool Canal is crumbling, but it's still good for cycling.
