Very odd to have a Closed to Through Traffic sign at the closed end of a dead-end road - there's access for bikes, but the road isn't closed to them anyway.

No, Cranmer Road is not closed - this is the only access to a dead-end road, and there's plenty of room for bikes and indeed cars too.

Failed sign

@Warwickshire_CC @Warwick_DC who is responsible for this @bollocksinfra on Sydenham Drive, Leam? Are cyclists really supposed to dismount, walk 3m across the footpath junction, and then remount? Confusing and pointless. https://t.co/uMC0StC ... [more]

I was surprised to see this sign at the newly rebuilt Partick Bus Station. The pedestrian crossing around the corner has been removed. Non-bus traffic has to use this lane past Partick Bus Station, but a left turn is required to get to t ... [more]

Rant at ‘cyclists’ who are ‘blocking’ the ‘entire pavement’ and a request to use racks 300 yards away. The challenge here is to change some of the residents' parking spaces to accommodate cycles.

If there really is a safety reason why cyclists can not be exempt from this No Entry sign in Leuven, Belgium, couldn't a cycle route be created to the right of the flower bed? See #101898 and #101899

An advisory 'NO CYCLING' sign on NCN51 through Central Milton Keynes. Cycling is not prohibited here, if it were then the round no cycling sign would have been used. What this demonstrates is the lack of a sign to suggest that cycles should ... [more]

Sale Trafford . A contraflow cycling facility required here

This should actually be a Dead End sogn.

Arrow in the opposite direction to the one just up the lane...

These look like one-way markings but they can be misleading.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal from the main towpath. I assume the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign up ahead means that cycling is allowed along this path.

No Cycling in the High Street, 11am to 4pm. Not strictly observed.

'Cyclists Dismount' for going under the bridge with poor sightlines at Camelon Road. Why not just 'go slowly'?

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

No Cycling sign, in principle, but cars can use this road?

Just another Cyclists Dismount sign, when what is needed is an indication that the cycle route switches to the other side of the road here.

I think the sign reads Cycle Track - Look Both Ways

No Motor Vehicles AND No Cycling - is that really what they meant?

Just 50m of cycle contraflow needed here (and the left-turn sign seems to have been turned around).

Road closure ahead - so of course there should be an Except Cyclists plate on the sign.

On this side of the roundabout there's a Cyclists Dismount sign, on the other side is an End of Route sign - can't anyone think these things through consistently?

This is definitely not the end of the cycle route, but the people who put these signs up don't seem to care.

No Entry Except Buses sign should also read 'and Cycles', of course.

No Vehicles, No Cycles signs on NCN route 13 in central Thetford - or do they imagine that this is a Cycles permitted sign?

Typical - rather than just 'End of Cycleway' there should be a cycleway arrow to the right.

No Parking for Cyclists sign - what I think it means is no parking of cars used to bring bikes to Rutland Water.

North end of the diverted section of the cycle route around Rutland Water - gates AND pointless Cyclists Dismount signs!

Perhaps the Cyclists Dismount sign is for cyclists going in the other direction, but it's still one of those negative things that make cycling seem dangerous and complicated.

Slow - Steep Hill! Are you wearing your helmet? The sort of nonense you get when a water company builds cycle infrastructure.

Gates and Cyclists Dismount sign to cross a very minor dead-end road. Ridiculou, but that's what happens when cycle routes are installed by a water company.

Cattle grid - another absurd reason to tell cylists to dismount. What happens when a water company creates cycle infratrusture.

Steep hill - Slow! Are you wearing your helmet? - One of many annoying signs around Rutland Water - what you get when cycle routes are designed by a water company.

Steep hill, cyclists dismount - the first of many annoying signs about dismounting and helmets. This is what happens when cycle routes are designed by a water company.

We could improve this cycle track? Or... https://t.co/Cilq1HPdIR

'Welcome to Rouken Glen Park'...oh wait.

"Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" but no dropped kerb to enable that. Pathetic!

Beware of cycles on the cycle path! This is not a 'No Through Road' for cycling.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at a useful footbridge over the M80 motorway.

NO! The sign should read Cyclists Rejoin The Carriageway, not Cyclists Dismount.

If motorway regulations apply up to the sign, shouldn't there be a fence between the motorway and the path?

The contraflow cycle lane on Blythswood Street is still incorrectly signed.

Evil Cyclists Dismount sign during bridge work at Crouch Hill station (for electrification of the Goblin line, now thankfully coming to an end).

Once again, a National Trust sign refers only to pedestrians and to vehicles - cyclists might want to come in for a picnic, or even as a short-cut to the National Byway.

A nonsense map (as far as cycle routes are concerned) in Glasgow's Queen Street railway station. What's so good about West Regent Lane for cycling?

Is this a new sign over-ruling the No Entry marking because the road is now two-way for cycling? Very unclear.

Cyclists Dismount sign while the shopping centre is rebuilt - but it's a one-way road in this direction so cycling is allowed.

This new development on the old hospital site in Nottingham is not cycle-friendly

Cyclists Dismount sign for a slightly narrower section of NCN route 5. They don't really understand about promoting cycling in Conwy.

It's not the end of the route, this is NCN route 5! What it means is Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway.

This is shown on maps as a route into the park.

Sign for a cycleway coupled with bonkers sign required by lawyers telling people they've no right to be near the busway. Get rid of it!

No comment.

This exit from the King's Lynn police station has been walled up for years.

Shared-use and No Cycling signs...

Temporary signage for a long-term access restriction during Sighthill redevelopment.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at a pedestrian crossing? Why hasn't a toucan crossing been installed here?

Droitwich Spa’s welcome for cyclists is a big No Cycling sign.

This should read Emergency Access and Cycles Only, I assume.

This road is only a dead end for motor vehicles, it's the obvious cycle route to and from Myddelton House and Forty Hall.

Elephant's Feet burned out following the fatality at Hewitt's Corner, see #96956

Shared-use signs reappearing after a considerable gap.

Shared-use signs seem to have been provided only where developers have installed them.

Newly surfaced link path in Pity Me from road to shared path beside A167. What does Durham council do. Bung up a no cycling sign of course. #slowclap https://t.co/GLbxO65cLm

Yellow signs threatening seizure and extending into the distance, including apparently on the footway.

Bowers Avenue contraflow opportunity for cyclists. "Except Cycles" sign required underneath. This would require a TRO (ideally on an area wide basis) which is a lot easier than you may think: http://www.cycling-embassy.org.uk/blog/2013/01/0 ... [more]

This should be a through route for cycling (ideally with a link across St Matthew's Piece from York St), if anyone at the city council or Anglia Ruskin University had actually thought about the clousre at the far end.

Sign for NCN route 51 where cycling is not allowed.

Really? Cars can move freely but bikes can't?

Anti-cycling signs on Commonwealth Avenue, Boston - this should be an ideal cycle route.

Absurd sign where the road above the Big Dig tunnel in Boston is lined with parked cars. Also bike-sharing station.

When the Big Dig project put the interstate highway into a tunnel beneath Boston, the opportunity to put decent cycle routes on top was ignored. The city's attitude is that a painted line on the road is good enough for cyclists.

When the Big Dig project put the interstate highway into a tunnel beneath Boston, the opportunity to put decent cycle routes on top was ignored. The sign says that they don't even clear the snow in winter.

No bikes allowed in the Metrotown Skytrain station - because of a (hopefully temporary) lack of lifts, I suspect.

They're very anti-cycling at the central library, Victoria BC

The cycle lane doesn't end - it continues to the left.

The more rural parts of Saanich are a bit behind when it comes to marking cycle routes - this is clearly the start of the Interurban Trail.

The familiar nonsense - No Exit sign immediately followed by signs for all the places you can go as long as you're not in a motor vehicle.

No Cycling on Centennial Square, Victoria BC - though it would be ideal for shared space

No Cycling on Centennial Square, Victoria BC - though it would be ideal for shared space

No Exit sign where there's actually a road closure with access for pedestrians and cyclists

Vancouver Island's biggest tourist site, the Butchart Gardens - no sign of any cycle parking.

Sign transferring the responsibility for controlling a motor vehicle onto the foot or cycleway user.

Just a small sign away from the main line of sight to warn of the cycle track crossing the access road to the Bunhouse Car Park, and no indication of priority.

After bikes being here as long as anyone can remember the new racks nearby #95242 have given this church the opportunity to ban them.

Still no sign as to whether this widened footway is shared use or not, now that the one-way carriageway is unusable for cycling in the other direction. However, there is this parking sign where no parking is allowed.

There are no cars now on Princes Street, so the sign is a bit confusing.
