Motor cycle event passing through Hay-On-Wye

Three cyclists (two separate groups) oblivious of the wide new cycleway.

A couple of pop-up peak-hour bus lanes have been provided on the Springburn Road expressway. The shape of the start of the bus lane has already been altered.

A couple of pop-up peak-hour bus lanes have been provided on the Springburn Road expressway. Nothing has been done to improve the narrow shared-use footway.

The pop-up cycle lane resumes, but only once the road happens to get wider. I bumped the kerb to allow the couple walking towards me to avoid walking single file. A decent permanent installation would not look like this.

The line narrowing the shared footway over the motorway bridge, and a scooter user approaching.

The shared footway over the motorway bridge has a solid line marking near the railing. Is this because the railing is too low for a shared use footway/cycleway to be there?

[Image taken 4.7.21] Lendal Bridge/Station Road at the Rougier Street end. The orange spot marks a kerbstone that was damaged: #168910. It was a hazard for people using the pavement and encroached into the ASL. I've re-re-re-reported the da ... [more]

It's 1.30 on a sunny Saturday afternoon, Ambleside and the Lakes have been full since the morning, and still there's a solid queue of lemmings crawling north.

Delightfully traffic-free lanes - until the moment I wanted to take this photo.

The wooden planter that got set alight last night is now festooned with signs and posters of support.

A pop-up painted cycle lane has appeared on George V Bridge, wider than the narrow stepped lane to its left, but still inside of a left turn motor vehicle lane, so probably best to continue moving out if not turning left.

Somewhere along Coleridge Road, N8 Car door fatality

Cars stopping in advisory cycle lanes, north Bristol

The protected cycle lane in Royston Road appears to direct cyclists into the kerb without warning. Further along it became apparent that installation work was still on-going.

[Car] Parking Suspended for Social Distancing - plenty of width available on the High St in Aldeburgh

Pop-up traffic-calming in Barton - it would be better with a cycle bypass.

It’s a bit of a mystery to me how flooding as bad as this can occur at the highest point!

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.)
