Cars parked in eastbound advisory cycle lane and on pavement, Roman Road in Bethnal Green

Barrier designed to allow cycles but block motorbikes.

Gate

TWO years on and there is still no way to cycle from Runcorn to Widnes during weekdays.Work has overrun on the old bridge and cycling is prohibited on the new one - #103166

Missed opportunity to put a cycle route through this raised park

The footway is totally blocked, so everyone walks on the cycleway

Absolutely gigantic oversize barriers lead to a very poor quality gravel path, before you can access the better quality asphalt path that takes you into the industrial estate. These need to be removed.

Crazy not to provide a dropped kerb on this new link to Oxford station

Clear line of desire where the busway failed to provide a direct link from Over to the maintenance track - people are clearly carrying bikes across the busway here.

The shared footway takes people away from Manchester Road and over to Nelson Street, whether they want that or not. It seems some people ride across the grass so presumably they wish to stay with Manchester Road.

A gate and A-frame barrier blocking the way to the National Cycle Network at the far end of Sandal & Agbrigg station car park.

This needs to be opened up for cycling as well as pedestrians.

The worst anti-cycling barrier I’ve ever seen, erected by @TelfordWrekin. Those sharp corners are about at eye height on a road bike and approached around a bend on a down slope. https://t.co/zc0VzdUU1F

Received a torrent of abuse from drivers today when riding 300m on the A40 because of this ”sign” blocking the bike path. @OxfordshireCC, why are your contractors doing this? Location between Witney & Barnard Gate. Cc: @cllrbartington h ... [more]

They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [See #9381 ... [more]

This is where the good parts of the cycleway start - south of this location, the surface is gravelly and not very good. It's perfectly ridable, just nowhere near as nice. And unfortunately it's full of silly barriers like this one.

Annoying barriers on this cycleway.
