Wintry commute Sheeps Green

The great snow of 2017.

Thoday Street

Ungritted foot and cycle bridge

The very straight dividing line here makes me think this is not due to gritting, perhaps a heated section because it is on a slight slope.

I took this before the main snowfall. I suspect it would be virtually impassable with no gritting after that. Whilst it's great that Cambs County Council does grit some cyclepaths, because it doesn't cover bits like this it makes the who ... [more]

A better video is at #47385 Cambridgeshire County Council's quad bike gritter in action on Midsummer Common on Saturday the 26th of January 2013. De-icing fluid was being emitted. After whizzing around the common's path the quad we ... [more]

Gritting means the path is slush not ice

Cycleway gritting having an effect

The snow on many of the motor vehicles in this street proves that they haven't moved for at least two days since the snowfall at the weekend. In this part of town quite a few cars remain 'parked' in the same spot without moving for weeks ... [more]

Quadbike for gritting cycle paths

Fantastic snowperson!

Thoday Street with a fresh dusting of the white crystally stuff.

Flakes fall through the flash, here's our tandem for the treacherous mile journey home. Its a covering of snow on a previous snow fall that had not fully melted away. Quite easy to lose control but we stayed on almost all the way home befor ... [more]

Two and a half days since it snowed - just about cycleable.

24 hours after it began snowing - road clear, cycle track unrideable.

Sheeps Green bridge gritted by hand.

Church Rate Walk - cycleable with care.

Heating embedded in the ramp of the cycle bridge keeps it clear of snow and ice

The heated ramp on the cycle bridge is effective - shame about the snow and slush on Rustat Road

Clear road, icy cycle lane. Cyclists are not allowed to use the road at this point

steady as she goes... arctic conditions on Riverside

Very icy. Riverside.

Snowman building on Jesus Green

Riverside in the ice and snow

I'll just lie here for a while, until it warms up.

Good for the soul

Along the riverbank

On piste

Head down across the snow

Church Street - one of the main cycle routes into the city. That is an inch of compacted sheet ice, not a road surface. Very dangerous.

The Cresta run... or the cycle path from the back of tesco down to Riverside, as it is sometimes known. Not only do users have the bollard slalom to cope with today, but we have sheet ice to launch you into the roadway. At least the car ... [more]

Union Road in the snow and ice. Very treacherous. Only the main roads get gritted and since most cycle routes avoid those roads the city becomes a no-go area for cycling after snow. or at least you can go, you just risk your neck and ot ... [more]

It doesn't really come across properly in the photograph but Arbury Road was just a mess of ice, slush and water when I took this. But look how close this idiot driver is to the guy on the bike. He is almost touching his mudguard. If the ... [more]

The cattle grid and gate under Victoria Avenue bridge. The paths across the commons are sheets of ice.

One of the most heavily pedestrianized streets in the centre of Cambridge is still a slippery ice-sheet at the end of a winters day. How hard would it have been to find some people to clear this?

Are you committing an offence by skiing the wrong way along a one-way street?

Overnight a new 'skiway' has opened in Thoday Street, as the way to get around.

Less than ideal cycling conditions (but no cars were risking going more than 20mph anyway)

Bicycle in the snow

A novel solution to the absence of road markings when it snows!

Chicane - ride through if you dare!

View of Central Cambridge from the tower of the University Library

Thoday Street

Hope Street - the snow reveals the desire lines.

Snow shows where people go.

The no left turn now has a cyclists exemption, replacing the older sign as shown at #6104.

A pedestrian walking in the road - motor vehicles stored on the footway.

Snow on the cycleway - shows up where the bikes go.

Footprints in the snow at Shire Hal.

Pretty as a picture - another reason to visit Cambridge!
