Cycle contraflow

Junction of cycleway with bus route. Stainless rods used instead of corduroy slabs. Cyclists are turning as they traverse them.

Variation on corduroy paving using glued-down stainless rods with knurled surface. Looks nice; will it work?

Interesting variation on typical corduroy paving. Stainless bars with knurled surface glued down. Very close to turning zone - will it be slippery in the wet?

The Ridgeway crossing Turing Way, Eddington

Link from Huntingdon Road to Madingley Road, Cambridge

Cyclist on The Ridgeway from Eddington towards central Cambridge

Gaffer tape used to repair bollard found discarded at #106943.

The junction has been resurfaced and repainted and cycle lights have been added at the crossing over Chaucer Road - it doesn't really change anything for cyclists on NCN route 11, though.

Contraflow cycle lane to Cambridge Biomedical Campus - on the 'wrong' side of the normal lane with the traffic flow.

Permissive bridleway from Trumpington Meadows to Grantchester Road and Trumpington

Unsigned but useful link from Trumpington to the routes across Trumpington Meadows

Cyclists must give way to rejoin the road they were on before they joined this cycleway.

Informal crossing of Fulbourn Road from the shared-use cycleway to the Peterhouse Technology Park.

City council staff were working here for a couple of days to create a narrower cycle access from Riverside to Tesco, and create more space for pedestrians. While they have money to do this, the county council is spending virtually nothing o ... [more]

@FinKnopsMckim @camcycle Here’s another photo of the situation

Bike tracks in the mud following a junction remodelling on Riverside in Cambridge. Muscle memory? Cyclists stuck in their old routines? @camcycle

Coldham’s Common

After a couple of years of nagging this dreadful stretch of an important cycle route has been resurfaced. But it feels like a hollow victory as the whole of Cambridge now seems to be one conjoined pothole.

The direct route from central Cambridge to Cambridge Regional College

New cycle lanes, Arbury Road

New “BEWARE OF BUSES” warnings on the cycle path next to the guided busway between Addenbrookes and Cambridge’s main station. @camcycle

Footpath under construction in Darwin Green, parallel with future orbital cycleway.

Reinstated footpath in Darwin Green construction site parallel to future orbital cycleway. About 2m wide.

Bollards at the entrance to this useful route. Sign says: 🚶Busway ⅓ 🚲Addenbrooke's 1 (great to see the apostrophe) 🛤Station 2

Despite the arrow, this is a two-way route

Cycleway through Trumpington Allotments

Sign to Trumpington from the Busway, and covered parking a short distance from the bus stop.

The surviving part of the Addenbrooke's-Trumpington path.

Future link to the Clay Farm-Trumpington path

Gates here too. The spacing of each looks OK but I'm less sure about the width from the wooden bollards either side of the gate in the foreground. See #93346

Future link to the busway, presumably

Cycleway and sheltered cycle parking at Trumpington Community College

Someday this may form part of a 'strategic cycleway' on the west side of Hobson's brook.

Cycle route from Addenbrooke's Road to Hobson's Park

Good to see the approach to the sluice fixed - but how long before it starts to subside again?

Access to residential blocks, Eddington

Cycleway and parking, Eddington

Crossing to the Ridgeway, Eddington (and Ofo bike)

Cycleway by Turing Way, Eddington

Milestone three miles to Cambridge

The other end of Bermuda Terrace (slightly odd that it's not been photographed before)

There are a lot of pedestrians in the morning peak now on the northern end of the busway path.

New contraflow markings on Union St, Cambridge

Off road cycleway in the business park.

Parker's Piece Location: , Cambridge (England, United Kingdom) Parker's Piece

Sheep's Green bridge Very narrow and busy but useful traffic free river crossing Cambridge

River gate Looking through to the Coe fen path Newnham

End of new route in Trumpington Meadows Country Park

New route in Trumpington Meadows Country Park

It's not clear whether this will remain a traffic-free cut-through - it could do with improving anyway.

Cut-through from Trumpington Park Primary School

The council has found 50p down the back of the sofa and at last repainted the shared-use markings which had vanished years ago.

Shared use footway alongside Newmarket Road

New cut-through from Tenison Road to Cambridge station Added to osm:

Poor shared-use path alongside Kings Hedges recreation ground

Solar light on cycle/footpath. A slightly different technique to the style used on Lammas Land. Easy to walk up to this point via Storey's Way but you can’t [for now] walk or cycle into Eddington directly from here. You need to go round t ... [more]

New bus stop bypass on Hills Road. This is a photo of it in an unfinished state - a few days later the raised table was filled in to make it step free across see #94250.

New bus stop bypass on Hills Road.

New route avoiding Station Square - if only there were dropped kerbs.

Link from the Coton Path to West Cambridge, now clearly marked - see #52340

Cycle parking by West Cambridge Lake and link to the Coton Path

Cycle crossing, Eddington

Market Square, Eddington - cycling seems to be permitted here

Market Square, Eddington - cycling seems to be permitted here.

View of new approach to junction, similar to Hills Rd bridge.

The road by Sainsbury's doesn't have a cycle lane for some reason. I guess they figured it would be a 'bus road' mostly. Except they put the car parking there too, so it's already an unpleasant place to cycle. Anyway, this is where the nice ... [more]

Suddenly the tar spray and chip Ridgeway gives way to a red machine-laid tarmac Ridgeway. And the tar spray and chip surface is used for the footway instead. I have to wonder why the red tarmac wasn't the choice for the whole Ridgeway cycle ... [more]

Ridgeway branches. Asphalt is 'interim surfacing' while 'tar spray and chip' is final surfacing on right. This branch of the path has been swept, so loose gravel is actually relatively rare now. It's not as smooth as asphalt but workable. H ... [more]

SLOW for narrow section of new cycle lane past floating bus stop

New toucan crossing at north end of the new Trumpigton Road cycle lanes

Confusing #Cyclists #Dismount signs have finally gone from the north side of #GreenDragon bridge.

Nearby paths have solar studs on either side, but this link just has single studs in the centre - yet another example of non-standard provision.

The white line warns you of the lamppost.

Even the cows are in a good mood today.

New Cycle route to Cambridge North on opening day

Shared-use pavement.

Ramp enabling bypassing of the road



It's surprising that the daylight-only cycle route across St John's College playing fields has never been documented.

It's surprising that the daylight-only cycle route across St John's College playing fields has never been documented.

A new 'floating' bus stop shelter (with a decent seat too, unusually) next to a shared-use path.

The key to this map says blue dashed lines are "Signed primary network separate from traffic". So why are developers putting up no entry signs as per

Wadloes Road cycleway - no priority at this junction.

Access route from Moss Bank to Cambridge North Station under construction in February 2017.

Construction of pedestrian and cycle access from Moss Bank to Cambridge North Station, in February 2017.

A cycling and walking bridge is proposed to run adjacent to this railway bridge. I cycled here from the opposite bank and then back: Ditton Meadows to Chesterton 1.1 miles, time: 7:14 C ... [more]

Arbury Road the cycleway on the right merges into the road behind the camera.

Arbury Road

Cycle lane enables queue busting, though it is a bit narrow

End of cycle route, start of towpath

Eastern end of the new cycleway, looking west. There is a flush drop-kerb here which makes it easy to join the cycleway.
