87378Photo #87378No cycle parking here at all as far as I could see. There is a new-ish (and very good) café here, so it could really do with some.

Note this car park does get very busy during the week so the question of where to put any bike racks is a trickier than it seems. But it does need some.

87208Photo #87208Two bikes were left here by a couple of friends (aged 16) on Friday. On Monday evening when they came to collect them only one remained. It had been secured with this cable and padlock. The D-lock had been added by the owner's mother at the suggestion of the police before we came along to recover it.

We asked Tesco security about it - and they offered a scan of the CCTV tapes but we did not take them up.

87190Photo #87190The new cycle paths on Hills Road are great, but until I found myself trying to recommend a route for a 16 year old to get past the massive roundabout at this major entrance to Addenbrooke's I hadn't realised the big gaps in provision.

The shared use cycleway exists only on this side of the roundabout and there's no accommodation for cyclists to cross here (technically they have to dismount).

87181Photo #87181These bollards between the towpath and the shared use pavement seem to be in a strange place - wouldn't they be better next to the cars? Which side am I supposed to go? The right side is too narrow, especially when encroached on by cars as shown. The left side requires an awkward turn.Obstruction:
