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: https://highwaysreporting.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/ Reference: 00311822

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.

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.

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!

Coldham’s Common

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).

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.

Blocking

Sudden end of cycle route to Cambridge Regional College. How hard would it be to sort this out? There are barriers in the underpass too.

New cycle lanes, Arbury Road

New on-street cycle stands and contraflow cycling sign.

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]
