The King's Parade security gate is now in use, with a steady flow of cyclists through the single two-way gap (thanks to Lucinda Price).

Road closed with very restrictive barriers when motor traffic was diverted to a new development - pretty pointless, and I can't see anyone using it.

The King's Parade security gate is now in use, with cycle markings and other signage in place (but they need to get rid of that white arrow to the right) - thanks to Lucinda Price.

Security barrier alongside Bath Abbey

An attempt to tidy the area up but flytipping hasn't been eradicated.

Harlaxton signs amended to remove wording about retaining access

End of the road on the promenade of Nueva Palmira, Uruguay - it would be nice to have a dropped kerb here.

Temporary road access to an industrial estate (created when its regular access was blocked by long-term utilities work) now blocked off.

A gate on NCN7 near the park at the end of Ben Nevis Road. Sometimes it is open, sometimes it is shut.

Old road cut off when a roundabout was built alongside - it would have been good to maintain cycle access.

Bollards in the path on the approach to the connection to Courthill.

Entry to large nature reserve between the North Road and the A1(M) - foot paths only.

Obstruction in the contraflow cycle lane, NCN route 4

it's awkward negotiating around armco barrier

bollard - no lighting

Barrier on track to the coastal footpath near the Fort de la Latte

Stone blocks to stop cars on the Chemin des Montagnes, Aubrac

The end of the stretch of the Chemin de Saint Jacques pilgrimage route that's closed to bikes and animals due to grazing.

Trap to stop bikes and horses using this section of the Chemin de St Jacques pilgrimage route (due to grazing) - and the landowners have the cheek to put up a donations box saying they're bearing all the costs of maintaining this ancient ri ... [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]
