[Image taken 2.5.21]. Wellington Row, Lendal Bridge, Tanner's Moat side, York. Sign alerting people the road will close. Other image here today: #168189 and links.

[Image taken 2.5.21]. Wellington Row, Lendal Bridge - Esplanade side, York. Sign alerting people the road will close though not saying why or how long for. (The cafe - the Perky Peacock and the steep steps to/from Lendal Bridge see: #168191 ... [more]

[Image taken 21.4.21] Terry Avenue, York. Well, where else would you put your cycles while you enjoy a picnic with a friend in the sun? Less funny are the plans for Terry Ave. I asked someone walking here today if he knew when it would clos ... [more]

"Cyclists Dismount And Use Footway" - the Sighthill diversion route appears to have been signed along the footway of various roads, none of which are actually signed as being shared use, so why dismount here?

Cyclists Dismounts sign at temporary access arrangements and path - but cycling isn't allowed here anyway.

I think this means that pedestrians and cyclists are sharing the same space for about ten metres - but it shouldn't be necessary to dismount.

Cyclists Please Obey Traffic Signals - motor vehicles are still turning across Histon Road

Cornwall's first mass vaccination centre for Covid-19 is in the middle of nowhere (Stithians Fairground) so cars are pretty much vital.

A sign outside a large house on Madingley Road pleads for bike lanes.

At least one sign now accepts that a modal filter on Panton St isn't a closure to all vehicles.

The Footpath Closed signs have reappeared - the path is flooded, but cycles can pass.

No Cycling on the Footway signs to allow social distancing.

Biden my path! - Panton Street opens to two way cycling on #inaugaurationday hurray! The sign has 'trail' rather than 'trial'.

Appeal for witnesses of a “Cycle Accident” on 16/12/19 over a year ago.

Beware of other road users! Extraordinary sign.

No idea what this sign is about

Worrying road closure signs - in fact it refers to a side road, the main route to St Keverne was open.

The reconstruction of Potsdam - two facsimile buildings, cycle parking, and a hoarding showing that the new city centre will be cycle-friendly.

An exhibit (in Lübeck) about borders in the Schengen zone

No pedestrians, bikes or mopeds in this construction area - not actually a problem outside working hours.

No entry for bikes to the weekly market, Leiden

I assume this refers only to cyclists wanting to cross to Brooklands Avenue - there's no reason not to continue riding on the shared-use to the right.

Temporary closure of footpath (but not cycleway) on NCN routes 71 and 72 towards Whitehaven

Maybe every narrow cycle route should warn of “constriction”!

The road really is closed to pedestrians and cyclists too (for several months, for construction of new housing), but it would be good to make that clear.

No Overtaking Cyclists Through Works sign - good. Van stopped just before the temporary lights - less good.

Histon Road works - 'except cycles' signs now attached to the Road Closed signs.

Road Closed for sinkhole repairs - but of course (on Sunday morning) pedestrians and cyclists are actually passing freely.

The usual Road Closed sign - and indeed the footway to the left is closed, but access has been provided to the right for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists.

A pop-up contraflow cycle lane has been installed on Argyle Street under Central Station, and other westbound traffic eliminated, in order to provide more space for pedestrians on the opposite footway. Temporary 'No Entry' signs have been p ... [more]

The pop-up contraflow cycle lane in Gordon Street, signed with temporary 'No Entry' signs, one of which has an 'except cyclists' plate below it, in place of the more usual 'except cycles'. The usual 'No Motor Vehicles' signs have been cover ... [more]

Not immediately clear why they've done this now, but this section of Bridge Street is two way for traffic. Might be a surprise for some on bikes.

Station Road, Hinckley

Warning of closure of this busy section of shared use foot and cycleway.

It's not at all clear, but the National Trust has not reopened Wimpole Hall post-Covid19 - instead they are requiring prebooking online to visit the parkland. This ignores the fact that the estate is totally porous to walkers and cyclists.

Route blocked by Covid-19 paranoia

Sign reads: To help support social distancing PLEASE USE THE PAVEMENT OPPOSITE TO CROSS THE BRIDGE

A totally blank washed-out piece of paper - what can it mean?

Relaxation of camera enforcement during lockdown.

The National Trust's new multi-user trail around the Wimpole estate - not yet in use

Sign about work on the National Trust's new multi-user trail around the Wimpole estate

It's now April and we're in the Covid-19 lockdown, but some resurfacing has been done.

Good practice!

Sign about road closures for Shane's sportive - almost certainly cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This looks like a bad translation, which is a shame. It doesn't apply to all the bits of furniture that get used as bike racks on Bridge Street, just the ones there are notices on. ETA: these informal bike stands are being replaced with ... [more]

Diversion signage.

The promenade in Penzance is being improved - mainly due to storm damage, but also because the Tour of Britain is due to start here on 6 Sept 2020

Caution - Toad in Road! We've installed these signs in Stanley Rd (with thanks to @CambsCC) aiming to reduce road mortalities of toads heading to their nearby breeding pond in Feb/March. Want to help local amphibians and reptiles? See @Cand ... [more]

No idea what slowing down is meant to achieve. Telling drivers to leave space might make more sense.

Transition: the introduction of a barrier on King’s Parade, Cambridge, means that all motor traffic is excluded between 9:30am and 7pm daily.

It's December 28th. Seems like they've scheduled a whole lot of work for December 30th-31st!

Once again I am prompted to thank the Australia police forces for helping to keep cyclists safe this Christmas. #thedarkknight_writings #bemoremike #vicpol #australianfederalpolice #nswpolice Adder's comment: Loca ... [more]

Happy days in Melo, Uruguay! The city's cyclists and footballers are all champions.

My annual visit to the World Travel Market - this company is in Menorca

The vast majority of cyclists wait at red lights legally.

The poster (a few months old) talks of a strike by food delivery cyclists for better conditions.

Bus promoting cycling and the new tramway, Avignon

There's a telecoms van beyond the End of Road Works sign, but no reason for this stretch of cycle lane to be closed.

Good practice - but it was hard to see why the cycle lane had to be closed.

The route across Oakington airfield - always closed in theory to most motor vehicles - has finally been made pedestrian/cyclist-only due to construction work. Signs just say 'Road Closed' with no mention of non-motorised access.

The route across Oakington airfield - always closed in theory to most motor vehicles - has finally been made pedestrian/cyclist-only due to construction work. The signage is inconsistent, eg the Cyclists Dismount signs appears in one direct ... [more]

The start of the contraflow lane on St Barnabas Road is blocked, but I'm sure most cyclists are ignoring the No Right Turns sign.

The Giro d'Italia came through Courmayeur on 25 May 2019.

A Tweed Run number out in the wild.

Street signage featured in an absolutely fantastic temporary exhibition on the making of the city, at the Ethnographic museum

Genuine question @GlasgowCC : wait for what? @GoBikeGlasgow Clyde Place under the rail bridge. Signs in both directions near entrance to land under bridge which has something going on. Should they actually say 'Caution: works access' or som ... [more]

The closure is actually to the right - the Lade route is unaffected.

At the CamCycle AGM.. there was nothing wrong with this bike rack, but if someone contacts the council someone else has to put a notice on it until someone who's qualified comes out to give it the all-clear...

Bus shelter ad for Milton Road consultation.

A quite unnecessary sign!

Plans afoot to remove abandoned bikes like those at #102763.

This sign sums up how CyclePoint is supposed to work.

About an hour after I took the photo #102588 here the poster has been edited, changing shit to chic: Make Romsey Chic again

Cambridge Festival of Cycling display, for the Wheels Through Time exhibition in the Cambridgeshire Collection.

Poster for riverside cycling event, Namur

Article about high-value bikes (including e-bikes) being targetted by thieves in Namur

'You are being diverted today for a new route tomorrow' - sign about the construction of the new bridge, Namur

No Parking of Cycles

Cyclists - use the roadway

This area of the cycle parking in front of Gent Sint-Pieters station is to be closed for works.

Warning about unsafe water in this lake

Diversion - Cyclists on the carriageway (approximate location)

Warning of pedestrians - presumably walking along the motorway ahead.

It was a month ago, but Amiens welcomed the Tour de France on Bastille Day.

Surface dressing at the Carradale Avenue junction on Glenfuir Road.

Westwood Pasture, Beverley - no cycling on the pastures, and beware cows crossing!

I've no idea why the cycle lane should be two-way in August.

Poster for guided cycle ride (in the toilets of the Rutland Water Nature Reserve visitor centre)

Road closure for cycle racing, Salisbury

Advance warning of road closure for the Reach Fair. The website says the closure does not apply to pedestrians and cyclists. I wonder if this is an official road closure as we saw a lot of cars using Little Fen ... [more]

Cyclists Dismount sign - it's a one-way road in the other direction and the off-road cycleway has vanished while the shopping centre is rebuilt.

Confusing - which Road Ahead? All traffic turns right here anyway.

Pointless and invisible sign.

I have no idea what closure this sign relates to or how long it's been there.

Chisholm Trail ground work has started.

Lots of fuss and bother - I think the road to the right is the one that's meant to be closed, and the diversion is straight ahead. In any case it's just a point closure so in most cases drivers can take the direct route to their destination ... [more]

Footway Ahead Closed - what about the cyclists forced out of the contraflow lane into oncoming traffic?

Gates wide open on a Sunday morning, but no pedestrians or cyclists allowed on this construction access.

Diversion on the River Lee Navigation towpath

Of course, the road isn't actually closed to cyclists.
