A good quality cycle crossing enables people to cross this busy road in comfort and safety.

Superb bidirectional cycleway alongside a river and main road.

Green End Road opening ceremony, a happy straggler.

New cycle provision on Hills Road

Segregated cycleway using simple dividers, very common all around Barcelona now. Used also by electric scooter users.

Cycleway along the beach

Segregated cycleway along the middle of Paral.lel

New cycle control for the crossing. Buttons are better than induction loops, which can sometimes fail to register the presence of a bicycle.

New cycle crossing at West Point. The lights are controlled by a button (out of frame). This enables a completely safe crossing of this risky junction.

An old but excellent piece of cycling infrastructure, with bus bypasses. Streetview shows it there in 2009, so I don't know when it was installed.

Conceptual cross-section for Chesterton Road with protected cycleway, separate footway, and an avenue of trees in planted grass verges.

A new combined pedestrian and cycling zebra crossing is provided here.

Cycleway on Fulbourn Road with priority over side road

A protected bypass has been built here, although it might have been better if it remained protected the closer one gets to the bridge (see the photo on the corner).

An excellent example of how to build a safe environment for all. This design is used on the north side of the bridge too.

A new section of cycle path alongside the A555. The surface is high quality and it's quite wide (there's a big deep ditch to the right that restricts it).

A new ramp down to the new cycle track alongside the A555. This is a good surface and is well signposted.

New protected infrastructure under construction in Wigan.

Underpass under Birchwood Way, smooth and wide with gentle ramps.

Cycle route continues west between the highway and a sports ground. I suspect the land behind the fence will soon become overgrown.

The cycle path leaves the main highway and continues west toward Woodford Road.

Cycle crossings alongside the new A555 bypass. Not yet complete in this picture.

High quality shared cycle path alongside the new bypass. It is a little on the narrow side but there aren't that many pedestrians or cyclists here.

High quality access ramp to the cycle path along the new bypass.

Stretford Manchester The correct sign when there are roadworks and there are narrow lanes. Segregated Infra is now in place and police are starting to enforce. On 28/11/18 an unmarked police vehicle is seen at the scene of 2 obstructing veh ... [more]

New cycleway, route F4, St Niklaas

Since the NCN74 cycleway is separated from the road by a decent sized verge, there is no question of roadsigns blocking the cycleway.

NCN74 alongside the B7078 (the old A74) where the former dual carriageway has been converted into a single carriageway road and a decent cycleway.

After a rubbish detour around Lesmahagow, the cycle route becomes rather good again! The former dual carriageway has been converted into a single carriageway road and a decent cycle path.

The cycle route south of Blackwood starts off as a shared footway, but then it changes into a proper cycleway.

Typical Lea Bridge Road side road treatment. Continuous footway aligned with cycleway https://t.co/yJzkXKO7aF

Bus-stop bypass, Manchester

Cycleway alongside light rail.

Cycleway from airport to Bergen.

Vauxhall

Vauxhall Bridge with barrier separating motor traffic.

Pathway behind hedges again for a bit.

Hedge protected pathway

Pathway gets a nice healthy 2.5m-wide verge for a bit.

Wide smooth tarmac cycleway passes under the new A556 road via a well lit underpass. There are steps for horse riders to dismount.

Cycleway through the Poblenou area

Probably nicest section, near western end of Sawston-Babraham cycleway. Shielded from car headlights by hedges, fields on other side.

Eastern end of Sawston-Babraham cycleway.

Space for walking, cycling, horseback riding and cats. [ed: I've seen partridge right here as well.]

The Babraham Institute cycleway / multi-use pathway for walking, cycling and horseback-riding. Very nice.

Employees now enjoy a separate cycleway entrance into their place of work, complete with cycle-friendly gate transponder.

Entry to well-crafted, relatively new pathway for walking, cycling and horseback riding around the Babraham Campus. Notice the separate grassy bridleway as well. A missing link between the A1307 cycleway and quiet roads in the village of Ba ... [more]

Bus stop bypass. I could quibble with a few points. There's no Zebra crossing for passengers. The bus stop might be too small, especially when they finally use two-door buses. The lamp post is in a strange spot. But generally speaking this ... [more]

For a simply stepped track, this is fine.

Best part of the Ridgeway I've yet seen. Feels almost Dutch. Red tarmac for the cycleway & confusingly tar spray and chip for the footway (even though tar spray and chip is used elsewhere for the cycleway). The lamp posts are placed outside ... [more]

Nice greenery around the site.

A father takes his kid home from school on the new cycleway along Eddington Ave. I believe that this junction does not have the incorrect give-way markings painted on it. It does have extraneous tactile pads, which seem to have been dist ... [more]

Forth Bridge cycle lane. No better way to get north of Edinburgh

Cycleway linking Cambridge North station with Milton Road. The cycleway is 2.8 metres wide and the footway 2.0 metres. (There are seven and five lots of 40x40cm corduroy slabs spanning the whole width.)

New cycleway alongside Milton Avenue - Cambridge North station area. Includes an angled kerb to the footway (although it is a bit steep at 45 degrees rather than 30 degrees).
