Covered cycle parking but using troughs, which make it difficult to secure the bikes.

Bikes dumped outside a neighbours house after the council ignored my abandoned bike reports for months. Note also in the background: motor vehicles parked across the footway and bins causing obstruction.

Station Road has been fixed! with a short stretch of red cycle lane. Let's hope it lasts.

End of May 2019: This abandoned bike is still there in the CyclePoint see ... #102763

New traffic calming on Devonshire Road, Cambridge - won't this make things worse? Taxis will constantly brake and accelerate, and will also cut in on cyclists to find the smoothest (fastest) route.

The tree roots have got so bad that there's been a collective move by cyclists to riding on the grass

New cycle stands on Station Road, Cambridge, still not in use a month after they appeared.

Cargo bikes galore for the school run Cambridge style.

These chilli style cycle racks add a little cheer to a dreary retail park.

Car storage area near a sofa store.

Covered cycle parking for thirty bikes outside a sofa store on the retail park.

Bins in the bike racks.

Still there see ... #102763

Unofficial looking 20mph sign in Devonshire Road.

Cyclists should dismount here, to reach the stands visible in the background - obviously, because that's better than car drivers having to pay attention.

The whole of Station Road is a disaster for cycling - but for some reason they've resurfaced the Tenison Road junction.

End rack damage in Free School Lane. Reported at: Response received 17 Apr 2019, 11:43 "We are pleased to confirm that work has been ordered to address this issue which sho ... [more]

An unofficial looking sign has recently appeared that reads 20mph please slow down. Possibly related to #104097?

I've pretty much given up reporting potholes like these, but maybe I'll try again.

Buses often wait here, impeding the Ridgeway cycle crossing - but this bus has stopped well clear, in fact it had to reverse to get moving again.

The Ridgeway crossing Turing Way, Eddington

The nearest crossing to the Eddington Avenue junction.

No motor vehicles as a rule - but there's still a reminder to look out for cyclists and joggers

Footpath and cycle route

Diversion via footpath (perfectly fine for cycling)

Surprisingly this delivery driver chose to stop jutting out into the carriageway rather than blocking the cycleway.

One of the bikes I turned upside down in September last year is still there at the end of March, see #102763

Gaffer tape used to repair bollard found discarded at #106943.

Route signage to Cambridge North.

Vehicle parked overhanging the cycle parking buildout (which has lost its protective bollard) - making it harder for us to wheel our bikes in and out of the house.

Bollard damaged and lying in a nearby bush. Reported at: Reference: 00311822 Update: a week later I notice it had been repaired with gaffer tape, see #107112. But also on ... [more]

Two's company Trumpington Street, Cambridge

A child's bike-sized rack among the cycle parking in this play area.

Saturday afternoon and used Mobikes cluster around the Grand Arcade entrance.

Cambridge North signed.

Good use of space at King's College School - though I'd have put the cycle stands in at a slight angle.

The junction has been resurfaced and repainted and cycle lights have been added at the crossing over Chaucer Road - it doesn't really change anything for cyclists on NCN route 11, though.

Contraflow cycle lane to Cambridge Biomedical Campus - on the 'wrong' side of the normal lane with the traffic flow.

Imaginative use of space at Cambridge Biomedical Campus - but access (back right) is a bit tricky.

Need for cycle parking on this street.


Cycle parking at the Chisholm Trail site office.

Cutting the sod: a ceremony to mark the start of construction of the Chisholm Trail, and in particular the Abbey-Chesterton bridge. Jim Chisholm (lead campaigner, Camcycle), a BBC reporter and Lewis Herbert (leader Cambridge City Council ... [more]

Upper Gwydir Street: Chalked colours in the double-yellow lines.

Workstand at the New Museums Site

Five months after I upturned that Raleigh bike it's still there, see #102763.

Early work on the Chisholm Trail.

Horrible racks - difficult to get the bikes in and provide no secure anchor point. Awful.

Wheelbenders in a corner of a development.

Nice graphic but rubbish cycle parking just off Cherry Hinton Road. Difficult to secure the bike to the racks, and little support for the bike - risk of wheel bending. Putting them by the bins adds insult to injury! Very poor effort indeed ... [more]

Bikes and bins: Cycle parking in residential area. It ought to be possible to make a much better job of this. Basic "Sheffield Stands" like these are much better than the wheel benders of old, but bikes don't lean to them very well wi ... [more]

No motor vehicles - much better for cycling now (compare #4366 and #4362) the chicanes are absent, but violation by mopeds mean residents are asking for physical measures.

City council staff were working here for a couple of days to create a narrower cycle access from Riverside to Tesco, and create more space for pedestrians. While they have money to do this, the county council is spending virtually nothing o ... [more]

'This cycle rack is to be deliberately left empty' ?

The county council doesn't have the money to fix this broken-up road, but the city council clearly has money for a bit of beautification. Only in disfunctional Britain!

Maybe somebody has noticed that having an unprotected right turn on NCN route 11 right before a roundabout is very dangerous.

Ten spaces in front of the new Royal Papworth Hospital!

Workstand at Addenbrooke’s.

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.

The Grand Arcade Cycle Park is closed on New Years day. (The Grand Arcade is closed but Lion Yard is open.) According to the sign the opening hours are: 07:00 to 23:30 Closed all day Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Easter Sunday.

After being closed for several weeks, this is now a properly surfaced and drained route

After being closed for several weeks, this is now a properly surfaced and drained route (no change to the bridge, though).

Emergency ambulances attending addresses in Thoday Street stop in the middle of the road and sometimes remain there for around an hour. Motor traffic is left to stare at the back of the ambulance and there are intermittent toots from some o ... [more]

Unofficial 20 mph signs have been screwed to a telegraph pole and a tree on Thoday Street outside the pub. Is it related to #107294 I wonder?

New bike repair service, I think

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.
