Arbury Road, Cambridge with an almost two metre wide cycleway.

New shared use cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width measured here: 4.0m

Semi segregated cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width: 1.9m, or 2m if the kerbs are included.

Nice looking cycleway here - but follow it and it gives up near the junction ahead. Also that sign on the left has the transport modes the wrong way round (but at least it is off the path).

Estimating the width of this shared use cycleway using the iPhone measure app. Width shown is 2.83m but add about 76cm for the manhole cover. Width of shared use cycleway: 3.5m

After being closed for several weeks, this is now a properly surfaced and drained route

Cyclists can turn left without waiting for the lights

After being closed for several weeks, this is now a properly surfaced and drained route (no change to the bridge, though).

Access to Trumpington Meadows Country Park - start of new (unsigned) route to Hauxton.

Blades and buggies Riverside shared path Jesus Green

For as long as I can remember the end of Red Cross Lane has been made awkward to negotiate by anybody trying to get through to Addenbrookes from the East by bike - gated, no dropped kerbs, rough surface, barriers to stop you accessing the r ... [more]

Nicely widened shared-use path with stud lights.

Decent temporary cycle path (and fence) put in at last, after the developers tried to get away with doing nothing. The damage done is visible to the right.

Cambridge / Eddington cycleway known as Ridgeway.

Hills Road cycleway northbound. The footway which was previously shared-use is now marked with a pedestrian symbol.

The long missing bit of the Hills Road northbound cycleway has finally been filled.

Warren Road looking at the Eastfield link.

Warren Road / Eastfield link has been freshly rebuilt, wider & with reasonable access control in the form of a single central bollard.

Entry to new connection to Red Cross Lane (finally).

New scheme is vast improvement over old situation, even if not perfect. Busy day as kids are back at school again.

ASL in resurfaced street

Obstacles removed - the short fence stopping people rushing from the path onto Fen Causeway (and impeding cycling on the shared-use footway) has been removed on both sides of the road.

Nice mural in this otherwise dingy underpass

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

New flatter, wider path on Midsummer Common - hopefully should be less pedestrian conflict.

The wife says the cranes remind her of the War of the Worlds as we head over the busway maintenance track into the Addenbrooke's site.

Useful segregated shortcut between Rotherwick Way and Field Way. Thankfully the ridiculous pram arms have been removed since #12389 was taken in 2008.

Barometer reached 1,123 by midnight, and totalled 1,033,705 for the year. https://twitter.com/GMcycling/status/815620373207252992

Cambridge's cycle counter has just hit one million! https://t.co/PwupDItd7j

New cycle path under construction to avoid double crossing of Water Lane

It's good to see the cycleway/footpath marking refreshed on the approach to the crossing. (However, I agree with the comments on #86150.)

Going fishing! Much improved bollard arrangement where Carter Bridge ramp joins Devonshire Road. Personally I would have liked to see a centerline marked for 5m up the ramp to help warn of the bollard, but this arrangement is as clear ... [more]
