New white lines and safety warning after a cyclist was killed by a guided bus near here.

Sign for the Bike Station, although (on a Sunday morning) it's not clear where it actually is.

Having rebuilt the first half of the path to Chaucer Road, the contractors are now working on the other half.

I've more or less given up reporting potholes in Cambridge, but this one is bad, with loose stones being thrown around. In addition, if a driver knocked someone down on the zebra crossing they'd get away with it, as any competent lawyer wou ... [more]

After a couple of years of nagging this dreadful stretch of an important cycle route has been resurfaced. But it feels like a hollow victory as the whole of Cambridge now seems to be one conjoined pothole.

Chisholm Trail construction site.

Nicely placed sharrow to get contra-flow cyclists riding well away from car doors. Compare #70403.

When vehicles park outside our front door it makes it much harder to get the bikes in and out of our hallway.

Convertible space (marked as wheelchair space on the outside) on a Class 700 Thameslink train - there's not quite enough space for a normal bike and a human being, you have to sit with your legs out to the left.

The new GCP/Marshalls cycle barometer - which is only recording cyclists heading towards the town centre. Not sure if this was intended. To clarify - the number recorded does not change when cyclists head to the left, away from the centre.

Covered, gated racks on Ferry Path

No cycle parking at all in this area - every cycle shown in this picture is parked insecurely.

I measured the gap for pedestrians between the house and the dashed white line as 64cm here, the footway as 1.31 metres and the car space as 2.05 metres. Photo captured using the Measure app on an iPhone 7 https://support.apple.com/en-gb ... [more]

P in marked areas, but nowhere for bikes on this street.

Rear access to Sedgwick and Catharine Streets unlit and muddy.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking

The new Astra-Zeneca building and a large area of disused car parking.

It's hard to see how it can possibly take four weeks to resurface this cut-through.

Remember this view if Govia Thameslink ever do close the Mill Road railway bridge.

CamCycles letting other businesses reap the commercial and community benefiits of the Mill Road Winter Fair.

New cycle lanes, Arbury Road

Simpers Walk double yellow lines this end avoid access here - but parking is allowed across the far end.

Cycle lanes and centreline need repainting

Cambridge station building looking splendid in the harsh winter light. Temporary bollards and threatening signage.

These two upside down bikes are still there just on the left at the top of the ramps after at least 29 days - see #102763.

It's really great to have new cycle parking in Romsey, but the workmanship on the installation is rather disappointing. The racks and bollards have been left covered with ugly dirt smears - which look to me like concrete dust. The groun ... [more]

CyclePoint I turned these bikes upside down about a month ago because I'd noticed they'd been missing wheels on a few previous visits. They're still there! But there are plans to clean them out according to signs that are on the next pho ... [more]
