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]

Newly installed racks on Argyle Street. I think the camber combined with the kerb will work well together to keep bikes tidily parked.

Mill Road, no right turn. (The except cycles sign is for the no entry into Kingston Street.)

Covered racks at the Quaker meeting house

Coleridge Road Residents slow to adapt to the new parking markings.

Garage door death https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/oct/22/woman-died-after-being-caught-in-garage-door-mechanism-inquest-hears

Cycle route around the back of the Grafton Centre. Fifteen years previously: #4816

Christchurch Street

Pedestrian sign to the Grafton Centre

NO IDLING Turn off your engine and protect the environment At least the stupid bollard at #4835 is gone.

Nothing to indicate that cycles are permitted to ride through here - facing motor vehicles leaving the multi-storey car storage facility. See #5183 from sixteen years previously.

Urgent need for more racks in Romsey.

Plans afoot to remove abandoned bikes like those at #102763. https://www.greateranglia.co.uk/cycling

This sign sums up how CyclePoint is supposed to work. https://www.greateranglia.co.uk/cycling

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]

Non highways compliant signs near a private school.

Collier Road - with a contraflow cycle marking

Guest Road - two way for cycling and great to see that the whole width of the southbound lane has been used.

Willis Road - the one way arrow in the distance on the left verifies that this road is still a one way street, with no contraflow for cycling.

Collier Road - two-way for cycling.

Covered cycle parking at a school.

Cycle parking for a work-out area near Abbey swimming pool.

Racks outside the coop to be removed.

Football rules were established here in 1848.

Wheelbenders at Trinity boat house

Shelford Road

Central cycle lane.

Cambridge Road changes to Shelford Road.

Cargo bike mentions Reach Fair on the side

Rounded A racks at the Methodist Church.

A couple of abandoned bikes on these otherwise excellent racks.

Wall bars on this Methodist church make for good cycle parking.

About an hour after I took the photo #102588 here the poster has been edited, changing shit to chic: Make Romsey Chic again

Anti ‘gentrification’ poster which shows the fading yarn bombed railings on Mill Road bridge with text overlaid: Make Romsey Shit again but see #102589.

A desperate shortage of cycle stands

Chinese tourists boarding a coach - blocking a mandatory cycle lane - outside the reopened University Hotel. Is this going to become more common?

Two car transporters parked on the cycleway. At least they're not on the footway.

Cycle parking area in the basement of this building down a ramp.

Not enough cycle space in this (car) parking garage

Just two stands at the Chemistry of Health building - if they'd put them at 45 degrees they would easily have had space for more.

Despite the arrow, this is a two-way route

Cycleway through Trumpington Allotments

Sign to Trumpington from the Busway, and covered parking a short distance from the bus stop.

New cycle parking apparently only for users of the Islamic Centre across the road. I suspect some drinkers at the Devonshire Arms may also use it.

The sign says that this new cycle parking is only for users of the Islamic Centre across the road.

The clash between the cycleway sign and the end of cycleway sign (#12277) has finally ended - time and rust have done what regular contact with council cycling officers couldn't do.

Nasty new pothole next to the repair done in March (#97265) - couldn't they just fix the whole stretch of road?

Underpass mainly for use by cows, with a gated footway separated by a fence.

Charles Street where double yellow lines have been introduced on one side of the road, and resident parking bays on the other. This is an improved environment now for pedestrians (who have both footways cleared in principle) and cycling. Co ... [more]

Cargo carnival Lammas Land, Cambridge

Not a lot of cycle parking at the new entry building for Newnham College.

This may be a new segregated link.

Bollards on St. Mary’s Street

Despite the hot dry summer (or maybe because of it?) these roots are getting worse for cyclists.

Delivery van blocking the mandatory cycle lane.

No Overtaking Cyclists past these roadworks - which were cleared away by 1.30pm on a Friday.

Privatisation of the pavement/footway - no concern for the crowds heading to and from the station.

Bike used to advertise bookshop.

This bit of the development only leads to the cycleway and so it appears the speed bump has been specifically put there to slow down cyclists. See #102123.

Hump and wheelbenders First time I've seen these humps, they weren't there at #93924.

Still closed more than a year after a bus crashed into here, see #90792

Intermittent cycle parking PLEASE NOTE (bold capitals, the rest is capitals too but too painful for me to do that to you) The users of this bicycle rack do so at their own risk. The management will not accept liability for accidents, da ... [more]

Progress on the development of this street corner with the appearance of four more racks, which with the two shown at #101933 make a total of 12 cycle parking spaces.

Work in progress on this corner of Cavendish Road / Mill Road.

Rant at ‘cyclists’ who are ‘blocking’ the ‘entire pavement’ and a request to use racks 300 yards away. The challenge here is to change some of the residents' parking spaces to accommodate cycles.

University Hotel bikes trapped underground.

The Alison Richard building. Same five years earlier #91977.

A Gormley on the Sedgwick site.

Hotel Bikes Brakes needed tightening on these two when I tried them the levers went all the way back against the handlebars. Also there were signs asking people to 'refrain' from attaching their bikes to the nearby railings.

Removal of bike parking here - but apparently to be replaced with 12 spaces. https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/cavendish-road-public-art-consultation https://camcycle.cyclescape.org/threads/2818 These racks originally replaced 3 spaces ... [more]

Poorly parked cycles combined with the camber of the buildout means these bikes have spread onto the footway. The look untidy and cause an obstruction.

Hills Road

Crammed in!

This is what Mill Road looks like when England are playing a knock-out game in the World Cup finals - no motor vehicles, a few cyclists - but it could be like this all the time with a closure near the railway bridge.

Rising bollards at entry to new infill housing development with no cycle parking visible.
