Pothole inspection on Grange Road - how long will it be before the hole gets fixed? And why can't this be done by a small electric vehicle?

No traffic lights, no problem.

Bikes among these items fished out of the river. The spokes in that wheel have all rotted away but the wheel is still connected to the forks by the axle. The steel in the handlebars has also rotted away leaving only the chrome skin in pl ... [more]

Why is the Humber Bridge closed to bikes? The reasons for banning walkers and cyclists are sensitive, but we're asking for clarification over this decision which requires a 60-mile detour for cyclists and walkers to cross the estuary. Re ... [more]

Bikepacking with a fit model, no backpack and a bike without a rack? Yeah right, Sunday Times, totally plausible.

Pram Rebellion temporary art about waste https://xrcambridge.org/pram-rebellion

Many combination locks (which should really be called permutation locks) have a weak point where the inner shaft joins because the metal itself is very weak.

Work blocking the South City Way cycle track on Pollokshaws Road, and also showing the general layout at toucan crossings along the route.

The South City Way taking shape at the transition between two-way and one-way cycle tracks at the north end of Pollokshaws Road. I'm not convinced the layout will be used as the designer intended. Surprisingly, no use has been made of th ... [more]

[Image taken 28.3.21] Between 14.30 and 15.30, two residents counted people on Terry Avenue, York on a blustery but dry Sunday. The reason was to get a benchline ahead of the closure of the route for flood works at Clementhorpe (see also: # ... [more]

There's a largely redundant dual-carriageway, but instead of taking a lane to provide the missing link cycleway between Swavesey and Fenstanton, they're spending much more time and money on a new alignment in the fields.

Work progressing on the new bridge across the Forth & Clyde Canal at Stockingfield Junction.

Markings for improvements (?) on both footways of Madingley Road (and temporary traffic lights)

New development in Romsey.

Fountainwell Road is presently closed in Sighthill, so St Rollox Drive is temporarily not a through road. The road on the right has been opened, and is presently the sole road access to the residential area of Sighthill.

Fountainwell Road is presently closed in Sighthill, so St Rollox Drive is temporarily not a through road.

North Canal Bank Street is closed for extensive rebuilding. Pedestrian access is maintained to the left (see #165586).

Ambiguous diversion sign for pedestrians and cyclists (the closed "footway" is the path from Craighall Road to Pinkston Road, alongside the motorway), and fancy electronic sign for motorists.

The path between Craighall Road and Pinkston Road is now closed for construction work. This path leads to #165573.

The bridge between North Wallace Street and Sighthill is being replaced, and diversions have been signed to Craighall Road and Pinkston Road.

Pedestrians and cyclists diverted into the presently dead-end Pinkston Road, but motorists are not.

"Cyclists Dismount And Use Footway" - the Sighthill diversion route appears to have been signed along the footway of various roads, none of which are actually signed as being shared use, so why dismount here?

The path alongside the motorway, between Pinkston Road and Craighall Road, has been closed. In the original publicity material it was stated that "constant access" would be maintained along this path, although given the nature of the work t ... [more]

A sign for the diversion due to the closure of the path between Pinkston Road and Craighall Road. There are no longer signs displayed for the diversion between Pinkston Road and Charles Street.

The path between Pinkston Road and Craighall Road has been closed, and the footbridge across the motorway to North Wallace Street has been removed. Diversion signs are in place along Baird Street and Dobbie's Loan. However, the diversion ... [more]

Cyclists Dismounts sign at temporary access arrangements and path - but cycling isn't allowed here anyway.

[Image is Street View from August 2019] York is a tourist destination. These hoardings on Rougier Street, York do not enhance the streetscape for visitors or locals. Further they are a wasted opportunity for the company building the new hot ... [more]

Pop-up cycle lane on Great Western Road, at bus stop near Balvie Avenue. The tactiles are of the lesser-spotted Guidance Path type, in a rubber stuck-down form. I think the pipe might be the drainage.

Gray’s Inn Road, really busy location, near a college and a hospital. Likely a brand new bike, owner did all they could. What can we do? Theft & security is a huge factor in (keeping) people riding. @willnorman @MetCycleCops https://t.co/ ... [more]

Histon Road is now closed southbound except for cyclists - this is the rather messy arrangement at the southern end.

I think this means that pedestrians and cyclists are sharing the same space for about ten metres - but it shouldn't be necessary to dismount.

Cyclists Please Obey Traffic Signals - motor vehicles are still turning across Histon Road

Histon Road is now closed southbound - most (but not all) of the No Entry signs have Except Cycle signs in place.

Histon Road is now closed southbound, except for cycles (although there is actually access for construction vehicles to Darwin Green to the right) - unfortunately there's no dropped kerb to reach it.

Queueing area for Covid-19 vaccinations - cycle stands temporarily out of use, but there are enough others.

The latest development at the Rock Road Rack is yarn bombing.

Having coffee at Southbank. I can see 8 @VictoriaPolice waiting to send cyclists who ride over 10 km/h to the Magistrates Court. Not very friendly. Maybe they know they’re damaging their brand. @cityofmelbourne just provide a safe ... [more]

This stretch of the fen has been flooded for over a month - there's a free-flowing stream to the right but somehow the cycle path seems to be an impermeable barrier to drainage.

The southern end of the Garscube Road cycle track still hasn't been completed, but is at least now rideable. Top surface is all that is required. Further north, the path is complete up until Sawmillfield Street, with work in progress at the ... [more]

London contractors seem to be quite good at this nowadays.

Cornwall's first mass vaccination centre for Covid-19 is in the middle of nowhere (Stithians Fairground) so cars are pretty much vital.

The Dutch Bike shop is moving out to Gwydir Street after being here for almost 12 years see #16752.

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Too many signs. Messages get lost. The Do not overtake cyclists sign is still completely obscured at this point and therefore has no value. See also: #164311, #164310, #164313, #164314, #164315

[Image taken 18.2.21] York, Wigginton Road. Only at this point do road users have a chance of seeing the Do not overtake cyclists sign. But this location is too late to make a difference. Plus drivers have had so many signs with so many mes ... [more]
