The main problem of this cycle park is no-one wants to pay to maintain it properly. Hence it is dirty, littered with broken racks and has a high rate of cycle theft.

113755Photo #113755The 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 cycling and frequently blocked by tour groups admiring the College architecture.

For any aspiring terrorists, the chain holding the gate shut doesn't look like it would put up much resistance to a pair of bolt croppers.

113740Photo #113740This looks like a bad translation, which is a shame. It doesn't apply to all the bits of furniture that get used as bike racks on Bridge Street, just the ones there are notices on.

ETA: these informal bike stands are being replaced with bollards, so essentially far fewer places to lock a bike on this road. Not helpful.

This was put in only a few years ago, and from the road-use it's clear that it's worse than no cyclelane at all. And yet the council are about to do the same in more #Cambridge streets. t.co/YYgK0H1Kjr
