shared use path along Reading Road - the cycle lanes have ended in time for the busy junction Location: , Winnersh (England, United Kingdom) The A329 between Showcase Roundabout and Woodward Close consists of off-road shared use paths ... [more]

Cycle lane narrower than a bicycle Coming to the end of NCN73 in Kilmarnock. The other end of the narrow path seen in #96166. A narrow two-way cycle track between a new housing development and the railway viaduct. There was a cycle track here before the housing was built, and it went through a car park and was wider (see old Google Stree ... [more] Toucan crossing for NCN73, and beyond that a cycle lane continuing along Portland St.

I found this cycle track today... Toucan crossing at Kilmarnock end of NCN route 73.

The County RoW officer says that local residents object to the surface of the Grantchester Meadows path here being repaired "because it would encourage parking". Well the state of it clearly doesn't deter parking, people park on the bits wi ... [more]

Left-side cycle lane on Commonwealth Avenue, Boston - it would be far better to have a proper cycle way in the central park.

The Beach Street closure, through the Chinese Arch in Boston, should be explicitly signed as a cycle route.

poorly surfaced, overgrown cycle path

Portland State University - this should be improved for cycling.

No treatment of #SWCW yet, although mini-gritter was on pavement of St Andrews Rd as I passed. Will check on way home tonight.

The short cycle link past the Anglican cathedral, Victoria BC, ends near a zebra crossing, with no other provision for onward connections.

It seems absurd that this is not signed as a link to the Flight Path around Victoria International Airport - I'm sure some airport staff do use this route to work.

No sign that the Lochside Trail crosses the road junction diagonally here

The newly built section of the Waterloo St cycle track has been surfaced with little stone blocks, and features this sharp deviation around a new layby. In the background is the toucan crossing across to the Anderston Bridge.

A brand new section of cycle track on Waterloo St, which has been surfaced with silly stone blocks, with little to distinguish it from the footway, unlike the rest of Waterloo St where the distinction is much clearer.

This crossing is the weakest link on the Lode to Quy cycleway

New crossing of B1102 near Anglesey Abbey. The refuge appears to be approximately 1.8 - 2 metres deep. Although this seems to be the same length as a typical bicycle, you would have to be extraordinarily confident to try and wait in this re ... [more]

On a lovely #CamRideHome along the great new #StowQuyLode cycleway we found some potential substructure issues. Please see for the full details and video.

NCR12 muddy route through Crown Lakes

Newnham crater field The start of the Grantchester Meadows path, destroyed by use as a casual car park

Very poor drainage and lack of maintenance has filled this path with mud and water. It's actually a hard tarmacadam-type surface on the right, but it's under a sea of mud.

Settlement at the south end of the flagship active travel bridge across the Clydeside Expressway at the Glasgow Harbour development.

A slight adverse camber on the shiny smooth asphalt cycle track.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

Good new route from Cambridge Regional College to Cambridge North station - but there's absolutely no signage from one to the other, and no indication that everyone has to change sides here. The usual lack of joined-up thinking and follow-t ... [more]

Very narrow cycle lane - obviously trams will just have to hang back and follow cyclists, but it's still terrifying just to see this.

Unfortunately inward-opening doors pose a threat to cyclists in this tunnel.

A vast roundabout and a narrow shared footway.

Narrow shared use next to a busy road.

Where the former railway line meets the road it is very unclear where to cycle next. The signs and shared use enticed us to cross here, but there was nothing more. It appears that you're expected to use the busy road.

Far too narrow and unpleasant, but at least it's away from motor traffic.

Missing section of cycleway, often encroached on by motor vehicles

Absurdly narrow lanes, but at least there's one on either side of the road.

These electric trikes only seem to use the cycleway.

I dream of a cycle route the length of Georgia's Black Sea coast, but the existing bits will need some improvement first.

Lack of cleaning makes this otherwise good path slippery and dangerous to use. It also suffers severe drainage problems near the old Ringley Station. Bury Council need to pay more attention to this track, just because motorists don't use ... [more]

Missed opportunity for a riverside route behind the new Public Service Hall, Tbilisi.

Staggered crossing via an incredibly thin central island. I think the Chreshire Cycleway (RCN 70) is supposed to cross here now that the traffic lights at Bucklow Hill have gone - though there are no route signs.

Crossing on the new off-road cycle track along Pekini (Peking) Ave, Tbilisi - just using regular pedestrian lights.

poorly designed cyclepath crossing side roads/driveways, looking east along London Road (Green Route) cycle path towards Ascot Location: , North Ascot (England, United Kingdom)

poorly designed cyclepath crossing side roads/driveways, looking west along London Road (Green Route) cycle path towards Bracknell Location: , North Ascot (England, United Kingdom)

poorly designed cyclepath crossing driveways and with a pinchpoint, looking east along London Road (Green Route) cycle path towards Ascot Location: , North Ascot (England, United Kingdom)

Cut-through needing improvement in central Hitchin

Good new Toucan crossing providing a direct route from Newnham via the fens to the station and various private schools - but it's a shame that the crossings at either end of Bateman St both have ridiculously long wait times for pedestrians/ ... [more]

Entrance to the guided busway cycleway is a little awkward

A minimum-width two-way cycleway and no dedicated footway means both people walking and cycling have to take avoiding action even when there are only three of them

New route avoiding Station Square - if only there were dropped kerbs.

Rubbish narrow shared use pavement cycleway part of a new development. Cyclists and pedestrians tolerate these things rather than enjoy them. They look ok here but the problem occurs at side roads where priority is lost. All they acheive is ... [more]

Taunton shared use footway see comment at #93459.

@BCCletts #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 light was fading. Using a filter and an arrow; waiting to shipwreck the next unsuspecting vessel...

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 multiple high threat ironworks ❌ paint added for extra danger ❌ in spite of this still an important route.

Waterloo St looks nice, but the traffic light phases are just wrong and you end up waiting at every junction. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Obligatory shot of the teeny tiny shared-use path on Broomielaw for #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Tale of 2 councils: Part 3 East Ren let down by this poor shared-use path through Govan… which nobody uses. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Really unsure what this piece of lowered curb is for. No use for entering or leaving lane. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Not quite so nice, junction on same path. Several near misses here due to drivers failing to giveway (or even look!) #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

This useful piece of infra (Balshagray Ave) is always thick with mud. Oh and overhanging trees. More cyclocross. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

The exciting end to two random blocks of cycle lane. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

London Rd cycle track/leaf trap (2011) 500m? Scrub/wasteground either side to extend. Spot the Shared sign in trees. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 Torrisdale St

Great route at #SWCW but no maintenance. Regularly flooded, full of debris, never swept. #GlasgowInfraDay17 #FitAndForget by @GlasgowCC ?

The already-too-small cycleway is being overgrown, as happens every year, by surrounding greenery.

After a few minutes one car slowed down a little bit to give me a gap and I managed to get across the A1307. Now looking back over to where I was.

Trying to cross the A1307 at the Babraham Campus roundabout. Very scary, very high-speed traffic, no gaps. Exit lane appears wide enough to fit two cars too.

Crossing the A1307 outside the Babraham Campus roundabout.

I made it to the central refuge island finally, but the traffic is moving too quickly for the mother and her two kids.

We're trying to cross the nasty roundabout without getting killed.

Nasty thorns on the nasty path around a nasty roundabout. Nonetheless, this family is heroically trying to cycle up to Wandlebury.

Trumpington Road scheme ends at the newly painted & slightly widened ASL.

Still a fairly intimidating place to cycle, due to sandwiched cycle lane.

Bad County! Bad bad bad! They lecture us about 'safety audits' all the time and yet this pile of crud has passed 'safety audit'. What a joke. Encourages people to cycle up the left-hand-side of left-turning traffic. Most people cycling will ... [more]

Weird entry to new cycleway from High Cross junction on Madingley Road

Sadly the good times end & we go back to tar spray and chip all over. And it's not swept, so I don't dare venture onto it. Even a slight nudge with my bike tire & it's covered in pebbles that I have to pick out so they don't penetrate my ti ... [more]

Brand new 'Ridgeway' covered in slippery leaves. This was built back in the early Spring and has sat unused for almost 6 months, fenced off.

The end of the ramp from the Raith Interchange roundabout cycle bridge (see #93301) ends at the A725 sliproad. There are then some right-angled corners to turn at and toucan crossings to cross to get to Bothwell. Queuing drivers also see ... [more]

The ramp from the cycle bridge over the Raith Interchange roundabout comes down in the No Man's Land between two dual carriageways, rather than on the side where Bothwell is. Users therefore have to cross four carriageways using toucan cros ... [more]

An enforced sharp double-back to get to cross the new cycle bridge across the Raith Interchange roundabout coming from Strathclyde Country Park. Very poor design!

The footway past the bus stop is shared use, but how would anyone alighting from a bus know?

A very narrow shared-use footway adjacent to the 'no expense spared' A727 dual carriageway flyover and sliproads.

A very narrow shared-use footway past a bus stop.

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times!

Unnecessarily narrow cycle lane - could easily be widened

Very tight turn onto shared-use footway, Parma

Pedestrians have little choice but to use the segregated cycleway here

Hard to believe that this is signed as a mountain-bike trail.

Blockage on cycle route 15: seeing this on The Viking cycle route this made me want to wield an axe ):-(}

Shared-use, dangerously positioned against driveways

Valiant attempt to provide priority at the sideroad for what is a poor-quality shared-use pavement that needs to upgraded

Old-fashioned road layout with poor cycle facility

Obsolete barrier

Random usage of tactile pads that seems to be thrown in for no apparent reason. Not the worst thing, but yet another maintenance item & potential slip risk. Behind them are the shared underground bins. Neat system. Stores waste undergrou ... [more]

A really weird way to create a pedestrian crossing of a cycleway. Basically, there's a short segment of shared-use. As a result there's an overusage of tactile pads. TSRGD 16 now allows Zebra crossings without Belisha beacons to be deplo ... [more]

The contractor disobeyed instructions and painted give-way markings on what was supposed to be a priority cycleway. We don't know when it will be fixed.

Opened section of Ridgeway with weirdly shaped bollards, misplaced lamp-posts, and loose gravel on the cycleway. Naturally nobody wants to cycle on loose gravel so everyone cycles on the tiled side that was supposed to be the footway. ... [more]
