It wouldn't be hard to put in a level cycleway to the left, avoiding the steps on the route from Whitstable to the town centre.

Steps between the two parts of Ebbsfleet International station, and a not very obvious ramped route to the left.

Remarkably small amount of disabled/cycle etc space on the Class 395 Javelin high-speed trains from St Pancras to Kent - and it's right at one end of a six-car train, but because the trains take a loop around Kent and end up back at St Panc ... [more]

Loads of space, no cycle parking (or seating) near Ely Cathedral

OK, no car parking, but why not some cycle parking? - there's none near the cathedral

No sign of any cycle parking at the new Battersea Power Station tube station. Try Nine Elms instead.

Awful hanging arrangement for bikes on a local train from Ravenna to Ferrara

Unsigned, but the Via Francigena turns right here

Way-point on the Via Francigena in southern Tuscany - but hikers and cyclists should take the road in the background to avoid a short stretch of main road.

Rest stop and water point on the Via Francigena in southern Tuscany - but it should be clearer that hikers and cyclists can turn left here to avoid a short stretch of main road.

[Image taken 20.10.21] Waitrose, Foss Islands Way, York. This is the main entrance. But the clutter on the pavement and... more worryingly the insubstantial metal support of the barrier. A blind or partially sighted person might not see it. ... [more]
