Urgent safety concerns see London's Hammersmith Bridge closed to cyclists and pedestrians #cycling Alternative routes:

The driver was happy to stop, but really didn't need to block the cycleway on the new 'Dutch-style' Fendon Road roundabout.

Lots of parking spaces coned off for social distancing, and this genius moves a cone to block the pedestrian/cycle access as well.

Works on this path to Huntingdon Road have finished and locals have pushed aside the barriers. Time to remove them properly.

This obstruction isn't going anywhere soon.

Flooding on new route parallel to the A494 to Bala

Paved but flooded section of the Cornish coastal path - but better than the grass alongside.

Saying Thank You for supporting the @camcycle campaign to remove the barriers at Cambridge Biomedical Campus. Lots of happy appreciative cyclists 😀

Quietway 2, closed.

I’m on King’s Parade in Cambridge again for the fourth day running as councillors have again said they are due to close the new anti-terror barrier today. The road is very busy with cyclists at the moment.

Counting cycle and motor traffic at the location of a new obstruction on the busway cycleway at the Biomedical Campus, Addenbrooke's, Cambridge, UK. I am pictured using the four bank handheld counter which is shown at #112987.

Footpath diverted around construction site

Caution: ducks on cycle path

Cycle route blocked by roadworks - and no space left between fence and cars. About turn...

There's a new cycleway to the left of these signs, along Constitution Hill

Riverside path, Kaohsiung - not easy to use during the Lantern Festival!

It seemed like a good idea to haul a loaded bike over the New Taipei flood defences here - of course I dropped it and bent the derailleur.

Closed access to bridge from New Taipei to Taipei
