Photo listing : general sign/notices (infrastructure)

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

The new CYCLOPS junction on Histon Road - I'm not sure why the No Right Turn sign is needed..

No Cycling on this asphalt path in Chilcompton

'Road crossing ahead' sign on NCN route 51 - if you haven't noticed it by this point you really must be in a dream.

The modal filter on Luard Road is still marked as experimental although the scheme has been made permanent (also the one on Bateman St).

Notice showing that cycle are not allowed here - bizarrely, this covered parking area is specifically for motorbikes and scooters.

Sallanches is a Cycling Town

Sign for cyclists heading from Chamonix towards the Col des Montets - usually they have more information about altitude and gradients.

Traffic-free street in Napoli

There's almost no cycle infrastructure in the historic centre of Napoli, so it was a surprise to see this sign.

Pedestrian zone in central Sutri - motor traffic is diverted to avoid the piazza. I think cycling is allowed.

Sign for the hikers' Via Francigena - cyclists are meant to go up the hill to the left, but a contraflow would be fine here.

This looks like a pop-up Covid-19 road closure arriving in Montefiascone - no exemption for cyclists.

Pedestrians Only, No Cycling on this street in Bolsena

Signs for the walkers' Via Francigena, and a warning of horses on the road.

Sign for a rare café stop on the Via Francigena

No Motor Vehicles in the old town of Buonconvento

No Through Road because of flood risk - but cyclists on the Via Francigena clearly don't need protecting from themselves.

No Through Road sign - an Except Cycles sign (in Italian) is needed, but in any case it is a through (but rough) road except when flooded.

Sign at the start of a rougher stretch of the Via Francigena (shown by blue and white markings)

No cars or trucks allowed at this gate to Siena.

Welcome to Ipswich You are entering a designated public space (Where there appears to be a restriction on drinking alcohol)

River path, Ipswich

Two-way cycling along the pedestrianised Frodsham Street, you meet service buses head-on which ought to terminate at the new bus station across the canal instead.

[Image taken 8.10.21] Navigation Road, junction with Foss Islands Road, York. New signage top left in the image. Context and links: #174712. Pre-works images: #174548, #167788. During works images: #174583, #174584. Other images today: #174 ... [more]

No Motor Vehicles at this entrance to Saint-Cirq-Lapopie (though they certainly get in by other routes).

No motor vehicles; horse-riders dismount; cyclists ride slowly along the cliffside stretch of the Lot towpath

No mopeds or motorbikes on the path to Cabrerets from the Pech-Merle cave - mountain-biking is allowed but not exactly straightforward.

No Motor Bikes - so cycles must be allowed, right? Although I know I'd be pushing.

No Entry and modal filter in Figeac

This is now signed as a one-way road (No Entry here) - but it must still be two-way for cycling - surely?

No Cycling on a short section of disused road in the Cap Fréhel nature reserve

The mill at Seefeld on the DSR, EV12, D1, MTS, ATS cycleways is a popular destination with tourists.

Cycle contraflow through the Grand' Porte, Saint Malo

Cycle contraflow through the Porte de Dinan, Saint Malo

Consultation on possible improvements for cycling (etc) in Lannion

Consultation on possible improvements for cycling (etc) in Lannion

BreizhGo, the Breton public transport system, is opening up more cycle spaces on trains, but at a cost.

The first of the petty 'Cyclists slow down' signs in Dawsholm Park.

'Beware of cyclists' in Dawsholm Park.

'Beware of cyclists' in Dawsholm Park. Beware also of the nursery minibus driver who parks just around the bend forcing path users into the muddy puddle.

Bamford Clough, hitherto a notoriously steep and rough track, has just been tarmacked, and should become known as one of England's tougher cycling challenges.

The old sign in #48310 which had faded out has been replaced, but the new one still does not explain who to phone or what needs permission to cross. The road forms an access to the Forth & Clyde Canal for the general public, so is not pr ... [more]

Coventry Canal footpath on opposite side to towpath at Griff Hollow wildlife site.

Marston Junction of the Coventry and Ashby Canals.

Cambridge Assessment has good cycle parking, but they are obsessed with making cyclists dismount and segregating them from people without bikes.

Middleton Street is a rare 'Play Street' in Glasgow, although in reality it looks little different from dozens of other residential streets across the city. The western-most block of Middleton Street is not included in the scheme, and some ... [more]

Middleton Street is a rare 'Play Street' in Glasgow, although in reality it looks little different from dozens of other residential streets across the city.

I remain to be convinced that priorities have really changed.

Information sign on NCN route 3, Wheal Maid

Warnings of cyclists, approaching a major junction on Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail, NCN route 3

Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail, NCN route 3, heading south from Bike Chain Bissoe

Information panel under the Carnon Viaduct on Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail

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

Statutory "No Cycling" sign, but not backed up by necessary traffic order

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!
