[Image taken 26.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] Surely this sign can be removed now. Together with the redundant barriers in: #172631.

[Image taken 22.7.21] Marygate car park. (No streetview at this location.) The greenery has been cut back along the fencing but remains overhead. Other issue with unchecked greenery and blind users read updated caption for: #172059. See als ... [more]

[Image taken 20.7.21] Memorial Gardens/Leeman Road, York. The overgrown foliage creates a completely blind corner. It may also dampen sound that could alert you to people approaching (pedestrians, wheelchair users). This is part of the dive ... [more]

Note added 25.7.21. This black bin is for depositing dog waste. Over several months the briars and (see: #169951) nettles grew over it. On 23.7.21 I was here with the CYC walking and cycling officer to put my view the infra here is critical ... [more]

[Image taken 15.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] Greenery from the rail line side of the railings has been cut back. Compare with #169951 and #169952. Other images here today: #172057 and links.

[Image taken 8.7.21] York rail station message on sign. But who is the contact to ask if it can be removed/check on and picked up each day? LNER? CYC? Why don't organisations label their signs? And provide a 'return to/report a problem' pho ... [more]

[Image taken 4.7.21] York rail station, York. Car park still signposted as closed. But today there is at least a gap through and no cyclists dismount signs. Images from yesterday see #171329 and links. Once through the visible exit, it was ... [more]

[Update: pedestrian sign now realigned: #172340] [Image taken 4.7.21] Memorial Gardens, Leeman Road, York. The diversion for wheelchair users now exits onto Leeman Road here. There is no gate to get into/out of the park at this side - compa ... [more]

[Image taken 3.7.21] Tanner's Moat, York. The colour of the temporary ramp might make wayfinding easier in dull weather. It might mean people do not struggle to see the location of/edge of unmarked kerbs. See also image: #171340 and links

[Image taken 3.7.21] Tanner's Moat, York. Temporary ramp added perhaps on 2 July 2021. I hope its presence means a permanent dropped kerb here will be reinstated. There had been a dropped kerb here between the bollards. It was removed in Ja ... [more]

Aurrigo autonomous vehicle on trial on the West Cambridge site - there was a human on board who seemed very ready to hit the brakes if needed.

We only ate here because of the placemats, honest. And not needing to lock our bikes.

[Image taken 7.6.21] Marygate car park, York. The gap between the cycle-ped-wheelchair route and the car park was closed. The barricades with protruding foot, and sand bag reduce the already limited width of the route and create hazards inc ... [more]

[See newer image: #170854] [Image taken 22.5.21] Lendal Bridge/Station Road at the Rougier Street end. The orange spot means it's been found and marked for action. I'm concerned the damaged ASL (see: #168910) next to it will have to get sim ... [more]

[Image taken 21.5.21] Leeman Road, York. A pedestrian uses the contraflow cycle lane perhaps due to social distancing (covid-19) conventions. This means the person has their back to cyclists and wheelchairs using the Wellington Row diversio ... [more]

It's a bit counter intuitive, but a group of cyclists on NCN route 51 seems to have stopped for a snack at the A14 services.

[Image taken 14.5.21] Ramp to/from rail station, York near Royal Mail building between Leeman Road and West Esplanade/the river Ouse. [No streetview at this location.] Light is out and it’s dark.[Image taken 14.5.21] Ramp to/from rail sta ... [more]

Update: Light still out 27.6.21. [Update: A reply in the name of the Customer & Resident Services Manager on 18/05/2021 14:16 said: The current status of your report is: closed - development works. This street light has been temporarily dis ... [more]

Some nice ice-cream bikes.

[Update see: #169878] [Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Hoardings around the Environment Agency works compound. The previous Scarborough Bridge had many problems. One was the dark, oppressive feel with no natural surveillance ( ... [more]

[Update see: #169878] [Image taken 12.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Hoardings around the Environment Agency works compound see also today: #168797 and links. All images this location today: #168788 and links

I think there's a camera up there to monitor use of the bridge.

[Image taken 26.4.21] Navigation Road, York. I took the pic to show how much space a scooting child and accompanying adult need when moving and communicating. This is a pavement. It is not shared with people on cycles. Though it is two-way ... [more]

[Image taken 21.4.21] Station Road, York. Heading towards the Minster. Drivers may be able to see the colours but they can't smell the scents. Further images of daffs and blossom from today see: #167608 and #167610. For images of the daffs ... [more]

You can trot if you want but you won't outpace a cyclist.

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

Maglev test track at Lathen. In 2006, 23 people were killed in an accident here, involving a Transrapid passenger train and a maintenance vehicle. The accident was discovered to have been caused by human failure. An emergency services worke ... [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]

New development in Romsey.

[Image taken 18.2.21] Terry Avenue, York. Half-term, during lockdown. A family takes a break while cycling along the motor traffic- (and therefore also noise- and air pollution-) free riverside. They were unaware the route will close to peo ... [more]

Not the largest lorry to be driven into the city centre but I can't help thinking that vehicles of this size and larger (and some that are a bit smaller too) shouldn't be allowed in. This one stopped here for sometime.

[Image taken 5.2.21] York, the car parks around Monks Cross Park & Ride offer space to scoot while schools and everywhere except essential shops are closed during the lockdown of early 2021. The surface is smooth tarmac and well drained. In ... [more]

Bikes waiting on this swing bridge to cross to NCN route 4.

Electrician's van at Combe Down tunnel on the Colliers Way (NCN 244) - signs warn of reduced lighting in the first half of the (mile-long) tunnel, but light and sound effects were as normal in the second half.

There's no sign at the bridge, but this footpath may still be closed, in theory.

Ramps in place for the Chesterton-Abbey bridge, which is waiting on the north side of the river to be lifted into position.

Construction site for the Abbey-Chesterton bridge on the Chisholm Trail (and a train from Cambridge North to London)

Special walk-and-text lanes have been provided in Spinningingfields, Manchester - for one day only, it's actually a marketing stunt.

Leisurely bike-based discussions on the main traffic-free street of Svilengrad, Bulgaria

A rare cyclist in Istanbul (I saw about a dozen per day)

We're still a long way short of the full million people on the Put It To The People march, but there's still clearly no way through for a cyclist.

5 car crash on Fen road @CambridgeNewsUK @CambridgeIndy apparently results of three cars racing each other https://t.co/bizGpu7Yls

Decent enough emergency repair to the potholes (see #97071), but how long will it last, and it's a shame the footway is also crumbling here.

French army officers heading off for the weekend (Friday midday...).

Link between Walthamstow Central and Queen's Road stations narrowed by building work.
