Wide and direct cycle crossing with segregated pedestrian crossing. Sadly this is two stage with a long wait at each stage.

Two way cycle lane with narrow bollards

Two way cycle lane with narrow bollard spacing (1.1m)

As we arrived at @NorfolkCC HQ, something about the cycle lane directing us into the sharp edge of a sign made us suspect they're not great at #space4cycling! @NorwichCycling @bollocksinfra @Ed_Colman @SmudgeThomas https://t.co/kJ5BLcASZb

These prongs on Greater Anglia's regional Class 170 trains will support three bikes (although they can swing around a bit) - or most bikes will fit underneath.

It would be good to have a cycle-friendly crossing here for access from the north to Norwich station (not just the roundabout official route to the south).

This is the obvious route into Norwich station, not the roundabout official one.

Link to the cathedral close, Norwich

One arrow ahead and one to the right - according to OpenCycleMap cyclists should go to the right then either turn sharp left to the cathedral close, or keep right towards Norwich station - but you can go straight ahead and use the footway ... [more]

The main area of cycle parking (and taxi stand) on Norwich's Market Square

Useful, but it would be better if the sign made it clear the road was one-way in the wrong direction.

No Entry except cycles, Norwich (and bypass in front of the sign)

There should be cycle parking here at Norwich Castle - but space for wedding cars is more lucrative.

Riverside route, Norwich

Typical - rather than just 'End of Cycleway' there should be a cycleway arrow to the right.

Start of riverside route, Norwich

There should really be a cycleway here between Norwich station and the river

This was a controversial contraflow because car parking should really have been removed to make spece - but it seems to be working well, with drivers and cyclists being considerate.

There could be better access to this cycleway in Norwich

Two-stage crossing on this radial pedalway, Norwich - it needs to be single-stage.

No-one wants to walk or cycle on the central section!

Access to the riverside path. Norwich

Stepfree but very awkward access to the riverside path, Norwich!

The radial pedalway makes a discreet turn to the right here.

There are cycle routes on both sides of the river, it seems.

The striking Jarrold Bridge, Norwich

Minimal signage where the pedalway takes a massive jink at the Jarrold Bridge, Norwich

Riverside cycleway, Norwich

Norwich is not flat like Cambridge... this is a genuine hill.

The crossing to Bishop Bridge could be improved for cycling.

It's a shame that the side road still has to give way to the non-existent motor traffic from the bridge.

Medieval bridge open only to pedestrians and cyclists, Norwich

Was that meant to be a cycleway?

Confused signage - there was meant to be a two-way cycleway on the near side of the road, but then Norfolk highways department realised there had to be more space for buses, so the on-road cycle lane was left on the far side of the road.
