Lammas Land pool gets very popular in this heat. Sadly, some people are selfish enough to park in the passing places on the road when their choice of parking spot runs out.

AU12 GJV Licence 570 Parked in Cycle Infra. Note that the space to the right isn't enough to get outside of the doorzone, so it's still not safe to use. And the law talks about ..... The 1988 Road Traffic Act, section 21. Any person ... [more]

Van blocking contraflow cycle lane on Bateman Street. A daily occurrence for much of the year - certainly this last week, and most summers from July to October. There are, of course, parking spaces marked and vacant just across the road, b ... [more]

CyclePoint, Cambridge station. First floor almost full at about 3 p.m on Wednesday 2nd March 2016.

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]

Two storey racks They seem better quality and more robust than the previous racks in the temporary cycle park. The bottom tier are awkward to use for tall people like me but the top tier seem fine. There are Sheffield stands too for p ... [more]

The lovely Victoria Homes have a nice pavilion, but no cycle parking.

Final photo about this. It's pretty clear that either people riding simply can't find the new part of the now split cycle parking, or they find it awkward to get to. Sad demonstration of a distinct step backwards from Waitrose.

Another delivery to la Maison du Steak do a delivery and blocking road users view of the lights. Noitce the space to the left of the photo, off road, nice and safe for all. Here's another example of this happening. http://cambridge.c ... [more]

My figures may not be entirely accurate, but there aren't too far off. I've no idea why this supermarket devalues it's cycle customers. Not only does the cycle parking have many less stands, it's now a lot more awkward to get into it, as ... [more]

A litany of parking blocking the pavement and forcing people to walk in the road.

No clip. Verge parking that means the door zone covers the entire cycle facility, thus effectively blocking it.

See clip at http://youtu.be/W_sCURPHTKs The driver was sat in the car. If to do with any house I'm not sure why they weren't making use of the large amount of space offroad clearly available. Please note I hold my line in the cyclelan ... [more]

OY03 UCL Parking in Cycle Provision. Well not quite in but effectively so as there's no space to go in it and get out the other side at anything more than a few miles an hour.

Yet again, deliveries to Costa Coffee park illegally on the pavement. Not only is this illegal, but look how dangerous it is. The lights for straight on are completely blocked from view for people driving and riding. There's a chance that t ... [more]

The Leisure Park could be anywhere in the world. With its uninspired buildings, chain cinemas, chain restaurants, shops and gym there is no sign of Cambridge, except for the lovely willow baskets on the bikes.

A black Audi convertible with number plates MX10 XEM is often parked overnight half on the pavement and blocking the MCL on Chesterton Road. Here on a Sunday at lunch time. See also #48783.
