'The Metaphysical Cyclist' - actually a tour of Cambridge's public art by former Young British Artist Gavin Tiurk

Road closure (except cycles)

Dyson Cycles. A good place to stop for spares, repairs and accessories.

Forth Bridge cycle lane. No better way to get north of Edinburgh

Cycle track blocked, A5111 Harvey Road westbound

Eastbound cycle track at Holbrook Road pinch point

The usual inconsiderate and illegal parking in the contraflow cycle lane in Mawson Road.

My thanks to @GlasgowCC for cutting back shubbery blind-siding cyclists at this difficult junction on Pollokshaws Rd . Cycles giving way to vehicles at the junction is not great but the poor view of the vehicles from the high vegetation mad ... [more]

Behold! The most inexplicable Cyclists Dismount sign yet. The road is only narrowed here so someone can park their Mercedes.

Not sure if this implies cyclists have priority over side road or not

Quiet rural road on NCN 12 heading towards Huntingdon

Farmer says you shall not pass!

Quiet rural fen road north of Somesham. Unfortunately is doesn't go anywhere, see next photo

The end! Arriving at Southwold Pier Cambridge to Southwold ride

Arriving in Bacton

Burrough Green (England, United Kingdom)

Along the Cam path Midsummer Common

Trafford near Manchester Firsway Health Centre . Appears to discourage walking by allowing their hedges to creep over the path restricting the width and reducing the light here.

Trafford near Manchester Irlam Housing association . Badly maintained footpaths with rubbish and creeping + overhanging vegetation

Give Way. Just do it!

The disused cattle grid on Bredisholm Road survived all the M8 motorway upgrade works.

The approach at Inchwood Road to the M80 footbridge over to Kirk Place is somewhat messy.

Another path junction that would benefit from some upgrading work.

As also seen in #99784, this path needs a proper surface, and it could be rebuilt slightly to the side to improve sightlines at the path junction.

Some potentially useful paths here, but the route crossing this one needs a proper surface, and the opportunity could be taken to move it away from the vegetation to improve sightlines.

Signs on the farm road adjacent to the newly built M8 motorway at Bargeddie.

How can anyone trust signage like this? See further comments at #70290.

Little difference from my last visit at #70285.

Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 crosses the B8048 here, then crosses the side road to get to the path to Craiglinn Interchange.

Route 4 from Craiglinn joins the path to the B8048. I don't know which kerb I prefer to bump!

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 does not go up this busy road. I checked at the Balloch Roundabout and there were no further signs.

According to my map from the council, the Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns left here then first right, rather than using the (rather ugly) caged crossing and the direct path to Craiglinn. But no signs.

Unfortunately the paths and crossing do not align, on this newly built estate. Very poor planning.

A nice wide path through Smithstone, with a raised crossing across Old Tower Road, but is it Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4?

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns the corner here, which may account for the difference in path widths. But no signs.

It's not just youngsters that take shortcuts when the local path network as built is inadequate.

Dappled shade on the approach to Thurgoland Tunnel on a sunny day in late Spring.

Gate leading away from Coldham's Common

Hostile road environment due to tram tracks on a narrow street

Cross Street approaching John Dalton St and Princess St. traffic signals do not detect cycle approach . A novice cyclist would cycle between the rail and the kerb - it is not certain whether there is a detection loop here, to pick any cyc ... [more]

The Middlewood Way from Marple to Macclesfield leisure route, going here over the viaduct in Bollington.

The Corduroy Heritage Path goes through the Croy station car park. More information at

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

The Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1 turns along this path to Craigmarloch, but there's no dropped kerb at the entrance. The 'No Through Road' sign could do with an 'except cycles' plate.

This path appears to have been forgotten about.

No signs to say this is a shared-use footway, but according to my map from the council, this is where Cumbernauld Cycle Network routes 4 and 4a are to be found. The roundabout appears to be built on a different plane from the rest of the ... [more]

Cycle parking at Croy station, protected by high containment kerbs and bollards.
