The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

I'm never sure what this means - is there access or not? I'm sure there is for cycles.

[UPDATE: On 23.1.23 this sign had gone and there were works on the cycle way as far as the entrance to the building site (former Nestle factory) so the only space for all non-motorised users was on the pedestrian side (ie on the left on … [more]

New bridge construction across the river, to replace the existing (and dangerous) bridge slightly to the south. Expected to be open June 2023.

Temple Gate 'improvements' - causing diversion via very narrow footway, see #188579.

Display of cycling books in a bookshop window, Dijon

Cycleway changed due to roadworks, Lyon Part-Dieu station

Temporary sign - No Entry except buses and cycles

Another temporary No Cycling sign, Memmingen - I don't know what these are about.

No Motor Vehicles Saturdays after 14.00 and Sundays and holidays - and a temporary sign which doesn't make much sense

Open air bar, bikes welcome, it seems

temporary No Cycling sign, possibly linked to the wedding group outside Memmingen town hall.

But this is a contraflow lane - there is no traffic lane for cyclists to merge into!

[Image taken on 4.5.22] Bootham Terrace, York. Tree cutting alongside the York-Scarborough rail line today, Thursday and Friday. No sign providing that information but many people on hand to answer questions and provide directions. Such as: … [more]

[UPDATE: Late May 2022, CYC removed this.] [Image taken on 4.5.22] Royal Mail sorting office, Leeman Road/Esplanade, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] A ghost sign and sandbag. (It used to be here: #173197.) Unsightly, a trip … [more]

Toads - crossing Dusk til Dawn https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-60944953

Notice on a 4WD windscreen, claiming to have let air out of a tyre (they looked normal to me) because it's a gas-guzzler. This is dangerous and foolish, in my opinion.

Temporary closure - not a pop-up Covid-19 measure, but roadworks. No problem for cyclists, despite the sign being right on top of the cycle symbol.

Notice of changes to cycle parking at Kings Cross station (a couple of months old)

Funny old world - no barrier was needed between busway and cycleway, but now that this side of the busway is closed a barrier is needed. But it's blown over. And apparently it's meant to be in North Yorkshire.

Temporary closure on 4/2/22

The footpath on the right was closed but the one on the left wasn't, in fact I didn't even have to dismount.

Roadworks - beware of pedestrians in what looks like a cycle lane.

Makeshift sign, felt marker on polystyrene board (erk), warns of ICE! and tells for cyclists to dismount.

Hmm - these bikes should have been removed by now to allow an event to take place.

I'm not sure whether this really meant No traffic at all except to the Covid-19 vaccination site (now closed).

Please Dismount Your Scooter or Bike

Temporary signage to "No Entry"!

[UPDATE See: #175352] [Image taken 22.10.21] Aldwark, junction with St Andrewgate, York. Context and other image here today: #175212 and links. Other images today: #175211 and links

[UPDATE See: #175354] [Image taken 22.10.21] Aldwark, junction with St Andrewgate, York. Not clear if cyclists, pedestrians or wheelchair users will be able to use the route during the closure. This is a critical link for people on cycles … [more]

The COP26 diversion route goes from Castlebank Street to Beith Street along the narrow remote footway, which has been signed as shared use.

Is this sign meant to be in use?

Well illustrated deviation for cyclists and walkers.

[Image taken 10.8.21] Haxby Road, York. Surely this should read, 'Be aware of cyclists.' I'm also at a loss to explain the missing 'g' on the last word. Other image today see: #173118

[Image taken 30.7.21] Wellington Row, York. Yet another fallen/redundant sign on this Environment Agency-signposted diversion route ('wellingtonrowesplanadelivediversion') the day before a weekend. All images today: #172716 and links

[Image taken 20.7.21] Memorial Gardens/Leeman Road, York. Sign now realigned - one I could actually reach and do myself. Compare with #171371. All images here today: #172324 and links

Cycle-friendly improvements coming on Paternoster Row, Sheffield

Two metres is the length of a tandem. Good to know.

Pop-up road closure in Bristol

Update: Sign on ground 8.7.21: #171575. The message visible on the sign: #171576. [Image taken 5.7.21] York rail station fallen sign. So it's not doing its job and it is creating a hazard. [Please note: no streetview at this location.] … [more]

End of Cycle Route? I guess it is, for a while.

Problems with the school run, I suspect.

A letter to Newnham residents from the Lib Den councillors - the petition against removing car parking at the start of Grantchester Meadows will be considered by the county council, so there will be no changes before 27 July.

Hoarding marking the invention of the safety bicycle in Coventry in 1885.

Notice of the county council's plans to close the car parking at the north end of Grantchester Meadows, and a petition against it.

[Update: This was removed early August 21.] [Image taken 19.6.21] Station Road/Rougier Street/Tanner's Moat junction, York. Freestanding signage for temporary works seems to create more issues (such as being an eyesore as here) than it … [more]

Poster for the Haydon Hundred Cyclo Sportive

[Image taken 9.6.21] Skeldergate, York. I noticed this sign today. Perhaps because the street was quiet so I could look ahead? And because my eye naturally followed the vehicles ahead? I can't read the yellow sign in the background in the … [more]

[Update see: #169769] [Image taken 26.5.21] Marygate car park, York. "Intermittent footpath closure" notice with dates 1-22 June and map. These ad hoc notice details are now also on a signpost. In the absence of a noticeboard this is a … [more]

[Image taken 26.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Ad hoc notices explaining the reason for the works compound (right) and notice of closure of the riverside route on certain dates in June 2021 (left). Other noticeboard images here today: … [more]

[Image taken 25.5.21] Marygate car park, York. Drivers see this digital display when leaving. It is still telling them when works will start (10 May), a reason: Environment Agency works, and an effect: the car park will have reduced … [more]

[Image taken 25.5.21] Marygate car park, York. People arriving by car have access to help/a human. When I was taking this photo and: #169687 a voice came out of the box between the barriers and asked if I needed assistance. People on the … [more]

[Image taken 21.5.21] Marygate carpark, York. Location of one of the signs explaining the reason for the changes here. No maps of the area with warnings about other flood works along the Ouse that might well affect people parking here, or … [more]

[Image taken 21.5.21] Royal Mail sorting office/West Esplanade, York. The small green sign saying Talk to us, we'll listen with the Samaritans number appeared on the upright of this signpost this week. A literal sign of the times during the … [more]

Yeah, we have no problem with cars, farm machinery, lawn mowers l, shotguns and the like, but hearing #cyclists chatting to each other really boils our piss. https://t.co/KCc3OxgcH5

[UPDATE: The floodgates have been replaced. The route re-opened 19.11.21] [Image taken 13.5.21] Tanner's Moat, York. This is the only explanation of the works around replacing the floodgates under Lendal Bridge I saw ahead of works starting … [more]

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

[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 … [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.

No Cycling on the Footway signs to allow social distancing.

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

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

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.

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

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 vast majority of cyclists wait at red lights legally.

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

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

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.

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.

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 … [more]

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 … [more]
