Temporary route to the Lady Julian foot and cycle bridge

A style of cycle stand common in Norwich yet the chunky construction doesn't work well with D locks

Quirky cycle parking at Notcutts garden centre: the Sheffield stands are on the fence but they would be more useful on the ground. At least they are close to the entrance.

NCN crosses here using a two stage toucan to join Upper King Street.

A horrible blind corner at the end of King Street. This is shared use and NCN 1

Somewhat confusing signs near the end of King Street: the contraflow path on the left is shared use while one of the no entry signs has an 'except cycles', though I don't think it was intended that this section is two way.

This part of King Street has a contraflow shared use path on the left and a narrow mandatory cycle lane on the right.

Rather confusing signs here however cycles can continue straight on across Rose Lane and on to the shared use path between the traffic signal and keep left bollard in the centre of the picture.

Overflowing bike parking outside Norwich shopping Centre.

The shared-use path here is very wide but sadly flawed by being shared-use when there was room for segregated paths. It appears not to have been machine laid as it is not entirely flat and not suitable for normal cruising speeds. This is th ... [more]

A typical poor junction design that asks pedestrians and cyclists to cross on a sweeping curve.

This route is normally closed to motor vehicles and allows cycles and pedestrians to mix.

Poorly maintained dedicated pedestrian and cycle route combined with very rough surface, numerous exits and entrances and one dismount instruction. The route is used by pedestrians and cyclists going to and from UEA university and potential ... [more]

New bike racks next to the Julian Study Centre, at the University of East Anglia.

Crossing at Ipswich Road and Newmarket Road junction. The hugely wide space did not allow for a proper crossing point with priority instead there is lots of paint and poles and buttons to push.

No Cycling - NO CYCLING Anglia Square, Norwich, Norfolk, England, UK

Barely visible signs for NCN route 1 (barely visible beneath all the clutter of signs for more important users, ie cars) entering central Norwich

Cyclist cutting through the cathedral close, Norwich

Road closure on minor bridge, Norwich.

One-way road and end of contraflow cycle lane, Norwich.

Short one-way stretch and cycle bypass on the roundabout route from Norwich station to the centre via the spiffy new cycle bridge.

NCN route 1 takes a roundabout route from Norwich station to the centre via the spiffy new cycle bridge. Sensible arrangement with cyclists in the centre and pedestrians on either side.

NCN route 1 running along a traffic-free street and bridge in Norwich.

Covered parking at UEA

Marked wheelchair route through the cycle parking at UEA with LED marker lights.

Bike and motorcycle parking under the walkway at UEA

Well-marked shared-use path at UEA

Cycles Left by this Ashtray Will Be Removed - UEA has an walkway above the road/cycling level.

There should be an Except Cycles plate under the No Right Turn sign - that's a contraflow cycle lane.

Cycle parking provision (on a Sunday morning) - the University of East Anglia seems to be responding seriously to growing cycling levels.

Road sign, cycle parking and footbridge to the Sainsbury Centre at UEA

Worn-out contraflow cycle lane and No Cycling sign that presumably refers to the footway to the right.

Cycle parking at the Sainsbury Centre, UEA - with similar stands in the background.

Three phases of cycle parking provision (on a Sunday morning) - the University of East Anglia seems to be responding seriously to growing cycling levels.

Good parking at Norwich University College of the Arts (also lots of space on the railings to left).

NCN route 1 through a road closure in Norwich

Slightly misleading sign on NCN route 1 in Norwich - there's actually a crossing to the right.

No level access to this riverside path in Norwich

Maybe one day the riverside walkway will continue here.

Riverside path in Norwich - it doesn't need to be a dead-end but is.

Cycle stands in the St Andrews car park, Norwich - there's also a cage near the security post

Water your bike here... nice long cycle stands in Norwich.

A second cycle crossing of the River Yare is desperately needed to improve connections between the new developments around Thickthorn / Round House Way with the city centre. This footbridge is ideally positioned, although it would need t ... [more]

This path through UEA's grounds would make an excellent cycle route with some surface improvement. It would provide a second route across the Yare ( #18796 ), linking well to the new housing estates being built around Thickthorn and Rou ... [more]

Cycle / service road bridge linking UEA to the hospital campus. This is the ONLY crossing point for cyclists over the River Yare between the A11 and the B1108 Earlham Rd, neither of which are cycle friendly.

Cycle / service road bridge linking UEA to the hospital campus

Cycle Parking outside the Salsisbury Gallery UEA

Lots of cycle parking at UEA

Chancellors Drive UEA

Nice cycle parking shelter at UEA. The racks are too tall though - the top bar should be level with the bicycle's top tube (750 mm above ground).

Cycle lanes on University Drive

A nice little traffic free link heading out of UEA towards the city centre.

A nice little traffic free path heading out of UEA campus towards the city centre. This is how bollards should be positioned - one central bollard that divides the flow rather than forcing people into conflict, the other two clear of the ... [more]

Unsegregated cycle path alongside Bluebell Road. Well seperated from the road but suffers all the usual problems of roadside cycle tracks such as loss of priority at side roads.

It is a good concept - using a toucan crossing to link Cow Drive (leads to UEA and the hospital) to The Avenues (for the city centre) - but poor execution. Just look at all of those barriers seperating cyclists, pedestrians and road traf ... [more]

The Avenues is traffic calmed and perfectly suitable for on road cycling for all abilities. It forms an important link between the city centre and UEA, the hospital, and the western residential areas. There is a parallel segregated cycle ... [more]

Neat merge from off-road cycle path to lead in lane to the advansed stop line (ASL). The Avenues is traffic calmed and perfectly suitable for on road cycling for asll abilities. It forms an important link between the city centre and UEA, ... [more]

Right turn cycle lane into Essex Street.

20 mph zone in Unthank Road

The central cycle lane helps people to turn right of Unthank Road into Essex St and The Avenues. This is an important link from UEA and the western suburbs to the city centre. Also serving the nearby school.

Good clear, deep ASLs on the approach to the Chapelfield Road signalised roundabout ( #18775 ) The central approach cycle lane helps people position correctly.

Large roundabouts like this (Chaplefield Road) are a big deterrent to cycling. Would you take your children across this ? ASLs on the approaches help a little ( #18776 )

Much of the centre of Norwich is pedestrianised, with cycle access maintained.

Don't tell DfT. The use of the "except" cycles plate with a "no entry" sign is clear, unambiguous, widely used in Europe, but not allowed by DfT.

Truly inSPIREing... (sorry). Norwich Cathedral

You can cycle through the peaceful Cathedral grounds
