The new "anti-terror" barriers on Kings Parade. I can't help thinking that they were really motivated by a rather cynical desire to make life more awkward for people cycling through the town. The gap is far too narrow for two way cyclin ... [more]

Sometimes you just have to give way to bigger traffic Stourbridge Common

King's Parade

Two's company Trumpington Street, Cambridge

I think the red section of the road indicates car parking - is that right @CambsCops? @camcitco? @CambsCC? Scotland Road. #cycling @camcycle https://t.co/J5mvszi8cw Note: this is actually Green End Road.

Cambridge Rules 1848 Sculpture. Parker's Piece The rules of football were first written down in Cambridge in 1848. This new sculpture was unveiled in May 2018 to commemorate the event. It is inscribed with the rules in many different ... [more]

Parker's Piece and its lamp posts. Nice path although too narrow.

Jesus Green People path

Along the Cam path Midsummer Common

Christ's Pieces Location: , Cambridge (England, United Kingdom) Cycling signed as not permitted on Christ's Pieces but restrictions are widely disregarded away from the main path, without causing any apparent problems.

Contraflow cycling Norwich Street, Cambridge Fantastic! Such a small, simple, but incredibly important breakthrough. No entry, except cycles... in the UK! Thank you to whoever is responsible.

Garret Hostel Bridge A rare shared use path with enough width to cycle comfortably. If the Cambridge News is to be believed the County want to stop allowing people to cycle on it over fears that a tourist will get bumped into the river

Riverside bridge in the sunshine

St John's Street cycle parking

Cycle parking outside Guildhall

Huge 20mph marking for this tiny lane - it'd be better to close it to motor vehicles except for access and open it to two-way cycling, especially if a crossing could be arranged to link to the Sheep's Green cycle route (at rear).

October mist at Coe Fen Technically a public footpath, as are almost all of Cambridge's traffic free cycle routes. The bridge was closed for several months for re-painting. It is a shame that it was not widened or a parallel cycle br ... [more]

Cargo trike The only way to travel for any self respecting toddler in Cambridge. Newnham corner is a bit of an awkward mess to negotiate unless you are heading up Barton Road. A widened pavement and a flat topped hump help.

Midsummer Common Technically a public footpath, and rather too narrow for shared use. This is never the less a useful and attractive route.

Carter bridge by night

Parker's Piece Path across the Piece - technically a public footpath, but heavily used for cycle access away from the busy roads surrounding the Piece.

Child trailer on Gonville Place Why would you want to reduce traffic on a road like this? Gonville Place used to have cycle lanes but they were removed in order to create an additional traffic lane to allow more vehicles to queue at t ... [more]

Carter Bridge Both the footway and cycleway are below recommended width, and this causes congestion in rush hour, but this is a very useful and popular crossing of the railway.

Steps really? In a purpose designed cycle park? Are there steps on the ramps for the car parking? Being serious, this is an irritation but doesn't really detract from what is otherwise a pretty good facility. I haven't come across any ... [more]
