An improvement at last at Doune Quadrant and Doune Gardens. Not perfect, but at least usable on a standard bike.

Cycling with an umbrella on the main roundabout in Shköder, Albania - perfectly normal here, it seems.

View from the south gate of Kotor, Montenegro - there needs to be a cycleway between the traffic-choked main road and the sea.

The Wick Road is looking good--looking forward to it being completed https://t.co/8sY8kGshgc

Despite the controlled access to the old town of Plovdiv, it's full of cars.

Controlled access to the old town of Plovdiv

Central reservation of road from Plovdiv station to the city centre - not a cycleway

There's lots of very leisurely cycling in Svilengrad, Bulgaria

Rose Hill, Marple where the NCN5 crosses Stockport Road

Shared use footway providing a link to NCN55

Marple Road where there's a short section of narrow cycle lane and some shared use.

Narrow cycle lanes appear for a short section here on Marple Road

Street lights in Edirne, Turkey, indicate which routes are available (also on the red phase).

This is one half of the huge Istanbul bus station - lots of car parking, no cycle facilities.

Cyclist climbing up from the Tophane waterfront, Istanbul

Lots of ferry passengers on the waterfront at the Beşiktaş ferry terminal, Istanbul

Proper crossing required, Istanbul

Rising bollards to the right, no entry except trams to the left

The Istanbul rush hour - a lot of people walk (from the metro or the ferry).

Parked cars, Istanbul - I assume someone somewhere has the keys... (approximate location)

Beleaguered cyclist (probably a foreigner) waiting to cross a major junction in Istanbul

Traffic-free streets for people and cats (the real owners of Istanbul)

Rising bollards at the entry to Sultanahmet Square (the Roman hippodrome), Istanbul

Rising bollards at the Aya Sofya church/mosque/museum, Istanbul

Road closure at the Aya Sofya church/mosque/museum, Istanbul

Road closed except for trams, Istanbul (EDS probably means ANPR cameras)

Access to the RSPB Fen Drayton reserve - technically a bridleway

Knapwell High Street - all red tarmac and traffic calming.

Road from Instow meets the rail trail.

Narrow road requiring dismount or finding passing place when meeting a motor vehicle.

Georgeham Road, Cross, Croyde, Devon. This narrow road sees a lot of motor traffic, many vans and sports utility vehicles and even double-decker buses. The turn at the bottom is particularly narrow. Traffic often passes close to the fron ... [more]

Croyde zebra crossing

A crossing in Croyde that looks a bit like a zebra but definitely isn't and is more like a pinch point.

Milkaway Lane: a bridleway above Croyde

New right-hook arrangement at the British Library crossroads

NCN27 on road section in Ilfracombe

NCN27 it's a steep incline to this right turn after the pleasures of downhill on the rail trail.

NCN27

The NCN27 doubles back to the left here onto the old railway line.

Traffic on the NCN27 can be fairly constant, stopping waiting and letting pass is necessary and frequent on this narrow section.

The whole of Station Road is a disaster for cycling - but for some reason they've resurfaced the Tenison Road junction.

Croyde

We have reached our destination!

Downhill from now on 🤗

Near the summit

Hilly Devon - still a bit of a way to go to the summit.

Devon has hills, and this one is just north of Braunton.

This long incline on the road is a bit of a shock after the gentle rail trail of the NCN27 Tarka Trail.

Hyde Park Crescent

Cycle route crosses the footway here at a curious dropped kerb - bollard arrangement.

George Street / Seymour Place

George Street

Earlyish on a Saturday morning the traffic is not too busy and the wife approved of the route between KGX and PAD. Crossing Baker Street here on George.

Marylebone High Street - a place where I often get confused when travelling between King's Cross and Paddington. I have to stop and think now do I turn left then right or right then left ... every time 🤔

London 🚲Network signage at New Cavendish Street / Wimpole Street. Turn right for Regent's Park ½ Primrose Hill 1¾ Straight on for Marylebone 1 Padding 1½

New Cavendish Street, LCN0 (seven stations circular)

Barbana Road runs parallel to Redwood Drive, and serves an office development, as well as playing host to the cycle route between Eaglesham, Thorntonhall and East Kilbride.

The Redwood Drive shared footway crosses Redwood Crescent next to the roundabout.

A split pelican crossing across Redwood Drive, rather than a toucan crossing with extra call buttons, when it forms part of a cycling route. It took a while for the lights to change.

Toucan crossing across Stewartfield Way, primarily for the Stewartfield Way cycle route, but also useful for the Glen Road path (straight ahead).

The Stewartfield Way cycleway crosses Macneish Way (which is the entrance to the Morrison's supermarket) here, but no help to cross this busy road, not even use of a central island due to where the dropped kerbs have been installed.

Pedestrian pavements generally level in Barcelona, with motor vehicle users needing to rise to the pavement level via a short kerb ramp.

The footway on this section of West Mains Road is not shared-use, although it looks little different from the section that is, and the carriageway is just as busy and fast-paced, so why not fill this gap in the network?

No room for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts? Pedestrians have their own footway all the way.

This track runs parallel to Kingsway and leads through to the Whitemoss Recreation Area and roundabout. A through route for cycling, but not driving.

Burns Park ends in the Maxwellton Conservation Area.

The Burns Park end of the footbridge across Kingsway.

A split toucan crossing across A749 dual carriageway for NCN756 to get to Nerston village en route to Rutherglen and Glasgow.
