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

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 m ... [more]

Is this sign meant to be in use?

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

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

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

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

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

[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

[Image taken 20.7.21] Memorial Gardens/Leeman Road, York. Compare with: #171372. Other images today: #172321 and links

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.] Othe ... [more]

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.

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

Information on the Aurrigo autonomous vehicle trails on the West Cambridge site

[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 solv ... [more]

Cycle-friendly improvements coming on Paternoster Row, Sheffield

[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 i ... [more]

Poster for the Haydon Hundred Cyclo Sportive

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

Pop-up road closure in Bristol

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

[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 crea ... [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: #1697 ... [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 cy ... [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 capacit ... [more]

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

[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]

[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 w ... [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.

[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]

[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.
