Extremely busy crossing on NCR 756. Either have to step out into traffic when queuing or wait for driver to give way. Pedestrian island between lanes is barely wide enough to accommodate bicycle.

Back route from Vallorcine station to footbridge and the road to Switzerland

King's Parade

The canal towpath near this point has now been given a much improved sealed surface, so it's a shame that this point of access has been completely untouched.

Is this the UK's, or the world's largest cycle icon?

A short section of two-way on-road painted cycle lane, forming part of NCN73 in Kilmarnock, leading to a shared footway that gets narrower as it goes around the corner.

Another example of the poor cycle infra in the Newmarket Road retail park. The driver just pulls up and stops (without indicating to traffic behind) in the cyclelane and the passenger opens the door straight away. This, combined with https ... [more]

New, very poor cycle infra in the retail park. Note "Cyclists use cyclelane only" is advisory so will confuse a lot of people. And it's a very bad place to ride, as shown by people walking in it. Just 10 metres earlier, this happened: https ... [more]

Dooring zone markings on the newly resurfaced Station Road, Cambridge - cyclists are entitled to keep well to the right.

Narrow and barely perceptible cycle lanes.

New Walk meets Victoria Park.

Buses and cycles (NCN route 6) only towards Northampton station

Totally un-cycle-friendly dogs-leg pedestrian crossing on NCN route 6 in Northampton

Road narrowing for safe pedestrian/cyclist crossing on the route from central Northampton to the Wathen Wigg bridge

A rare cyclist at Salisbury hospital - it's out of town and totally organised around car and bus access.

Elephant and Castle roundabout with segregated cycle lanes on the circulating carriageway and approach arms London

Start of foot/cycle route from the centre of Mevagissey to the north

Mevagissey harbour, where driving is allowed but cycling is not - though that surely wouldn't stand up in a court of law.

The bottom of Ciff St, supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north. Probably best to dismount here and go either left or right.

Supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north - keep left here.

A long lead up and sharp bend mean this was very hard to get a cargo bike round. It requires hefty wiggling. Ok for normal bikes but beware if you have a tandem, Tagalong or cargo.

Alternative route just above the main A3074 into St Ives - it would be nice if (one day) cyclists could use this in both directions.

Love it or hate it, the closure of Hammersmith Bridge [to motor traffic] certainly makes the cycle ride to sports day more enjoyable: #notchiswick https://t.co/ksqeJWZQAw

The recently redesigned Sevenways roundabout has some minor improvements for pedestrians, but on the road it's a very different matter. Very few road users pay any attention to the road markings and choose to move straight over them, leadi ... [more]

Alternative to the A394 roundabout and a couple of hundred metres of the main road into Helston

Station Road has been fixed! with a short stretch of red cycle lane. Let's hope it lasts.

For the first time in a long time I used CS1 this morning instead of CS2. Absolutely appalling, one of the worst places to cycle in Hackney, which is quite an achievement for a dedicated cycle route https://t.co/aU3Ln2JmY3 Ride along her ... [more]

Highbury Corner. Now fit for humans. https://t.co/Nmt3NjxR8i

Intermittent painted cycle lanes on the 40mph A88 Bellsdyke Road, a signed diversion route for the M876 motorway.

Priority over oncoming vehicles for northbound traffic at the bridge over the River Carron, and narrow gaps for drainage and maybe cycling. The road is bypassed by the newer New Carron Road.

An opportunity to create a cycle link between Abercrombie Street and Mansionhouse Road across the A803 Main Street in Camelon by upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing. Mansionhouse Road leads to the Forth & Clyde Canal.

The end of the cycle path from Cumbernauld Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, but neither a dropped kerb to get onto the carriageway or a shared footway in either direction. Allandale to the left, Castlecary (and the quieter Walton Road to A ... [more]

Cycling on Blackbog Road, which is part of a series of quiet country roads between Palacerigg and Moodiesburn.

Apart from being excessive, is this not confusing? Why do these Toucan crossings at Coonagh require 4 traffic lights? Is this the new standard? https://t.co/w287fkUeHZ Note: the location is not quite right yet! Awaiting more info.

Amsterdam-based newspaper "Het Parool" is covering today's national public transport strike via liveblog. The lead image? "Cyclists in the IJtunnel: Because ferries do not sail across the IJ, the tunnel is open to cyclists and motorists ... [more]

There is a major public transport strike today, which means no train, tram, bus, or ferry service across the Netherlands. To retain timely and efficient access to the city, Amsterdam opened the (previously car-only) IJtunnel to bikes and ... [more]

New traffic calming on Devonshire Road, Cambridge - won't this make things worse? Taxis will constantly brake and accelerate, and will also cut in on cyclists to find the smoothest (fastest) route.

The cycle route crosses so many lanes on this trunk road intersection - it's not obvious which toucan crossing buttons and lights to use.

The road on the right looks a bit like a slip road down from the roundabout - but it is in fact two way traffic which might come as a bit of a shock if you weren't expecting that.
