The cycle lane surface is awful and lumpy and seems to be degrading. please can we have nice smooth paths laid by a machine?

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A cyclist makes it up the incline to Scarborough Bridge. The corner at the bottom is blind and the angle tight. The previous three cyclists didn't get a runup, were in the wrong gear and had to ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Pedestrian approaching the slope marked for cycles but used by most people as it's more direct, shorter and the first one you come to from this direction. The corner is a blind one, though. See ... [more]

[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Gap 3 of four (see: #168555) linking the car park with the cycle-ped-wheechair route through it. However this one is unprotected (compare with: #168558, #168560). Therefore cars will block it. T ... [more]

This is a seriously dangerous bit of road for cyclists. 3 lanes of fast moving traffic, which you have to be the middle one if you want to go straight on. Needs a cycle lane.

It is very busy and intimidating to cycle down Narborough Road

Narborough village needs connecting to Enderby village. From Road across B4114 up Forest Road (use footpaths by Santander)

Section outside Library central store has vegetation growing over the pavement making it extra narrow at the bus stop. Please cut it back and widen my path!

This is the only dropped kerb to join the shared-use footway to the pedestrian/cycle underpass beneath the A10

The footpath from the town limits to Croft Lane could be upgraded to a proper cycle track for pedestrians / cyclists and mobility scooter users. Croft Bank from Croft Lane to Wainfleet is a busy narrow main road with embankment on either s ... [more]

Station access, Ely - it's not signed, but cyclists wanting the new shared-use route under the railway need to cross at the toucan crossing in the distance.

Shared-use footway to the south; Except Cycle plate needed on the Dead End sign to the right.

According to OpenCycleMap this is a shared-use route, but there's no evidence on the ground.

How can something so new be in such a terrible state?

[Image taken 29.4.21] Hoardings on Bridge Lane (between Wigginton Road and the York-Scarborough rail line) York. They don't come cheap. £30k is a realistic estimate of what these cost. They are likely to remain in situ for 72 weeks from wh ... [more]

Good quiet cycling up to top of Haldon but steep

Good quiet cycling up to top of Haldon but steep

With the new light controlled crossings installed on the A12 slip roads the next week spot in the cycling infrastructure is crossing Axial Way. So a safe crossing is required here.

Steep with loose gravel. Needs resurfacing in a way that does not wash out leaving the bridleway difficult to cycle.

This entry to a bridleway is blocked by a narrow path with two horse step over blocks. Fortunately we can carry our tandem, but others might not be so able. A barrier to disabled access to a right of way for cycling.

Segregated cycle lanes needed on the Old Kent Road

This road could be cycled by so many children from Brant Road going to Hykeham, but this road is too narrow and the traffic too fast.

Half width contraflow cycle lane

[Image taken 23.4.21] Hurricane Way, York. Cyclists are expected/directed to be on the path here see: #167737, #167367. There is no provision for people using the shared-use, offroad route to cross to B&Q. There's no drop kerb to leave the ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. This (the third, from Tesco) zebra has clear markings. There's no lack of space to make these zebras into the shared (ped-cycle) designs ('parallel crossing'). For more images taken here today ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. This is the third (from the Tesco end) of the three zebras at this end of/avoiding the Tesco roundabout. But there's a visible incline. People of all ages, levels of physical fitness, on foot, ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. This is the second of the three zebras north of the Tesco roundabout between Tesco and Clifton Moor Gate. The markings on this one are worn. Note also the gradient. The land at either end is vi ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. This crossing is around 50m from the one at the junction with Stirling Road (see: #167859). Both avoid using the roundabout on Clifton Moor Gate. The tarmac around this Tesco was relaid in earl ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. People crossing on foot or on cycles have three zebras to navigate. That's a lot of stopping and starting, and likely with shopping and or a dependant onboard. The zebras are not the shared use ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. No provision for people cycling to reach Tesco. The narrowness of the route did not permit social distancing during the 2020-21 covid-19 epidemic. People on the path are moving in both directio ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. The tarmac at this retail park was relaid in early 2021. For people on cycles coming round the outside of the car park (for example from Haxby, New Earswick) it's a big improvement on the unev ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate junction with Stirling Road, York. The Tesco Extra is just off the good network of offroad ped-cycle provision alongside the carriageways in this area of York. But there is no 'destination' signage. I ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Looking south along Clifton Moor Gate, York. There's an access/exit to something here. It gets used by drivers pulling over to make/take calls. They completely block the offroad, segregated provision. The greenery is a ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Tesco roundabout, Clifton Moor Gate, York. If you have crossed to here whether to reach Longwood Road (see: #167817) or to continue over the roundabout to reach the retail park on this side of Clifton Moor Gate, or the ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Tesco roundabout, Clifton Moor Gate, York. The only way for people on cycles to reach Longwood Road is to cross here. The tarmac on the left is not marked as a cycle path. Therefore you have to join the road (no provis ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. The island is too narrow for longer cycles or people with trailers. The route links residential and retail areas. Therefore trailers and 'family-carriers' (eg: #167039) should be expected and p ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. It's rare that I can cross (in either direction) in one go. The width of the island is insufficient for several people trying to cross - the offroad network means families on cycles, on foot ( ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York. There's a good network of offroad ped-cycle provision alongside the carriageways. But there are no maps and few direction signs. And where the latter exist they don't give distances. The cycle ... [more]

NCN route 1 leaving Lowestoft - the signs say shared-use, on the ground it looks segregated. Also a link to shops.

NCN route 1 entering Lowestoft - the signs say shared-use, on the ground it looks segregated

With a dropped kerb, this could be a route for NCN route 1 to Lowestoft station

No cycle lane, too many parked cars in Low Fell - maybe needs people and cycle path from Gateshead to the Angel

It would be brilliant to create a cycle path all along this road, the views are brilliant and it would make a great tourist/visitor route but traffic very heavy at times

Bollard down in Yoker.

We need to remove the cyclists from the prom and create a designated lane on the overcliff. Too many accidents on the prom now

Cycle path needed here

Too many potholes along this stretch of road. Unsafe seriously needs improvements

Clarify the cycle route from the start of the footpath, ie. signpost the route along St Benedict Road heading South and where to go from here to reach Rails Lane. Perhaps upgrade the footpath to shared cycleway.
