Photo listing : general sign/notices (infrastructure)

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

When a black triangle is shown at an end of a Greater Anglia train it means the bicycle section (shown by a green side stripe) is at that end of the train.

Milestone in Aldeburgh

I was told that quite a few cyclists are using the Sailor’s Path, but that it’s a bit narrow and sandy in places.

Licensed Footpath Unfortunately this does not refer to the sale of alcoholic beverages 🧐

Cyclists Dismount sign at the entry to the Penryn University Campus from the west

Buses and bikes only on a cut-off section of the A39 - and a cycle route sign to Falmouth, presumably via the byway to Perranwell Station.

Sign at Saxmundham Station explaining how the railway has washed it’s hands at the idea of transporting hundreds of riders and their bikes back to London on the weekend of the Dunwich Dynamo ride.

Pop-up traffic-free zone 10-6 daily, cycle contraflow at other times - on NCN route 4

An old motor car dealership See #60555

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway sign approaching the new Robin Hood junction - a cycle symbol and arrow on the ground would help.

No Cycling sign, and no dropped kerb - but there's nothing at the far end to say cycling isn't allowed.

The pram handles have gone, and now there's a DIY No Motorcycles sign.

The enforceable limit is 40mph, the advisable limit is 25mph.

It is the end of the route, although a Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway sign might make more sense.

Overhead barrier with No Horses sign - no cycling either on this footpath out of the Oughtonhead Common Nature Reserve, Hitchin

No Bicycles at the rear of Ickleford church

Anglia Ruskin University cycle cull notice

Somewhere in Nové Mesto, Bratislava - these new signs are supposed to be humorous, but they just say 'Let's get them home safely'.

A story in three parts

No Cycling (and no dropped kerb) on Cuckoo Lane, Headington

No Cycling on Cuckoo Lane, Headington

No Cycling on Cuckoo Lane, Headington

One sign with an Except Cycles plate, one without - and a car parked but leaving the (temporarily) contraflow cycle lane open.

Start of the Côte d'Oughtibridge - one of the vicious climbs made famous when the Tour de France came to Yorkshire.

Entrance to Balgonie Road on Arisaig Drive.

Approaching the bus-gate roundabout bypass on Paisley Road West.

The sign back at #170595 should have warned that this left turn is directly onto the M8 motorway.

The price of the Walberswick to Southwold ferry has gone up from 70p in 2007 #11240, 80p in 2010 #27590 and £1 in 2015 #72061 to £2 per adult and per bike. But the ferry is now motorized

'No Cycling' on the narrow path next to Robertson Park. There is a parallel route through the park where cycling is permitted.

'Beware of Cycles' on various roads joining Inchinnan Road. The cycle provision on the A8 Inchinnan Road appears to consist of nothing more than signs.

No pedestrian or cycle access to this Supertram bridge

No Entry Except Cycles - ie contraflow cycling on the road, not just the route to the left, I presume.

Cyclists Dismount on Sheffield University campus

The footbridge destroyed in Storm Desmond in 2015 will be rebuilt as a foot and cycle bridge linking the centre of Kendal with NCN route 6.

Start of the Loughrigg Terrace bridleway into the National Trust's High Close Estate

Thirlmere Dam Road - closed to motor vehicles but not cyclists and pedestrians.

Path up to the former Threlkeld to Keswick railway line

The former road south from Threlkeld towards Grasmere - still open for cyclists, as long as you can cross the A66.

No Cycling on this National Trust land by Derwent Water

No Cycling on NCN route 71... at least over the suspension bridge.

Cyclists Dismount signs where the shared-use path crosses a side road

Start of the excellent new (post-flooding) Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path

There is a steep climb to rejoin the old Penrith-Keswick road through Threlkeld, but I didn't need to dismount.

Slightly odd sign - this turns out to be a dead end with just a footpath exit at the far end.

'Busy Road Ahead' on NCN route 68 on the former railway south from Haltwhistle - actually it's a very quiet road!

Information panel at the Alston Arches viaduct, Haltwhistle

No Motor Vehicles (except for access) on this cut-through towards Hexham Middle School

No motor vehicles on the bridleway south from Acomb

Dead-end - but not for cyclists or pedestrians

No Cycling signs on this footpath

Cyclists Dismount sign - the rails are at an awkward angle, so some kind of warning is needed.

Sustrans milepost on NCN route 72 between Vindolanda and Hexham

Signs for the National Byway by Hadrian's Wall

Space For Cyclists sign west of Hexham

Nice try, but I think it just means 'lean your bike on the front window'.

Apparently an excellent new rental business in Penzance

End of shared-use cycleway (with a useful cut-through from the right as well)

The tiniest shared-use sign on the path to Bengal Street.

The funding sign for the Dumbreck Road/Mosspark Boulevard junction improvements, that included a staggered toucan crossing and footway upgrade to shared-use. This project linked up the Haggs Road/Dumbreck Road shared footway and NCN7/75 ... [more]

No Cycling, basically.

[Image taken 28.5.21] This is the other side of the replacement post in #169758.

Pedestrians Only - it really is better for cyclists to stay away from the railway tracks (and the crowds of pedestrians).

The Cyclists Dismount and One Way signs seems to have appeared during the Covid-19 lockdowns - previously cyclists in both direction were on one side and pedestrians on the other.

Contraflow AND shared-use signs across the road - but to get there from the Vauxhall Bridge you have to divert via the Toucan crossing.

Signed as a pedestrian route only to the Bristol harbour ferry

Dead End except cycles and pedestrians, of course.

Plans for the new Ashley Down station (with a minor diversion of the cycleway due to steps being added)

Cyclists Dismount sign on Valentine Bridge, Bristol - but the Meads Reach Bridge is a far better option for cycling.

No Motor Vehicles except for access, and No Cycling on the footbridge to Coventry station

Cycle contraflow suspended and blocked with parked vehicles

Cyclists Dismount sign opposite the Ibis Hotel, in one of the many former Cycle Works in this area of Coventry

No Cycling on this footbridge between Coventry station and the city centre

Symbolic bus gate, and footbridge across the Coventry ring road

The area on the north side of Coventry station is being remodelled, and made less accessible by cars.

Crossing the cycle route from the University of Warwick main campus to the medical school

NCN route 52 and Coventry Route 11 on the University of Warwick campus. Of course the sign only applies to motor vehicles.

One-way bridge - Coventry Route 11 cuts around to the left/south

Barriers and No Cycling sign on bridge over a closed railway in Bedworth

No Entry - but cyclists should presumably use the footway on the left to the start of NCN route 52 by the Coventry Canal

Cyclists Dismount to cross the ring road to reach the canal basin and NCN route 52

Buses, bikes and taxis only under the Whittle Arches, Coventry

No Cycling on The Precinct, Coventry

The 'No Through Road' sign, located halfway along the road, rather than at a junction. For pedestrians, access to Millerston can be had via the station and the bridge ahead, but no attempt has been made to make this available for cycling. ... [more]

The Peddars Way south from the A47

A poem on a stele by the Peddars Way

Vintage road sign on NCN route 1

Farm information sign on the cycle circuit around the Holkham estate

Farm information sign on the cycle circuit around the Holkham estate

There is a bridge, but it's not great for cycles either.

Sustrans NCN marker where NCN route 1 crosses the A149

End of shared-use path, Kings Lynn

Cyclists Must Ensure That They Are Visible - to horses, presumably. This is a handy route around the northeastern side of Newmarket.

Cyclists Must Ensure That They Are Visible - to horses, presumably. This is a handy route around the northeastern side of Newmarket.

No Cycling on this cut-through off Newmarket High Street

No public access until 1pm

Warning of northbound cyclists crossing from the shared-use path on the bend

Cyclists Ahead - footpath leading to the shared-use path from Swaffham Prior to Burwell

Cyclists Dismount sign on the path from a new housing development to the B1049 - although it's shown as a through route for cycling on OpenCycleMap.

New private development off Impington Lane - it's actually shown as a through route for cycling on OpenCycleMap, although there are in fact Cyclists Dismount signs on the path to the B1049.

First in Milton Keynes (#96095), now in West Cambridge - autonomous vehicles on the footways.
