Two-way cycling is now permitted in Panton Street, but the right-turn from Lensfield Road is not facilitated by any gap in the hashing. (Note: need to double-check whether there is any sign prohibiting a right-turn here.)

Cambridge market, where The Bikeman and other bike shops operate is temporarily closed because of controversial COVID-19 measures.

The finish of a cycle event (on a Saturday), Aarhus

Bus boarders have now been installed on the Great Western Road pop-up cycle lane, and await markings. The transition is a bit rough, but not as bad as the step for bus passengers at the raised kerb.

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane at Lancefield Quay, where the parallel NCN75 riverside cycle path is shut due to a building fire.

The end of the Fastlink busway on Anderston Quay, and in the distance, the recommencement of the popup cycle lane. The traffic signals detected my approach, and are quick to change.

Cycling legally on the Fastlink busway at last! (But only in this direction.)

Caught out by the road markings, or a change of mind when the traffic signals changed? The sign reads "Cyclists use Fastlink Carriageway", and a tiny "& cycle symbol" added amidst the "Bus Only" wording.

I guess the road markings are to remind bus drivers turning onto the Fastlink busway to look out for cyclists, but they appear to suggest to cyclists to go straight on, when the yellow sign says to use the busway.

The popup cycle lane recommences in Broomielaw, after George V Bridge, while NCN75 U-turns down a ramp onto the riverside path. The footway along this section ahead is no longer shared-use, but still sees people cycling along it, even with ... [more]
