The new Astra-Zeneca building and a large area of disused car parking.

I just came across this map of the routes I cycled around my school in the 1970s - happy days!

This used to be thick with trees but also a fairly awful / steep path link that the college decided it had to make worse with chicanes & a cyclists dismount sign. Unsure what's up, but it's all gone now (the sign has since been removed e ... [more]

Cambridge in a nutshell.

See http://radwagon.blogspot.com/2016/08/pleasant-circular-route-round-cambridge.html for a video of riding around a pleasant little ride around Cambridge on good infra, not so good infra, and quiet roads. Just enjoy!

Contraflow cycle lane in Harvest Way, Cambridge blocked by builders' hoardings. There's an even wider obstruction a few metres beyond. The yellow notice says "CYCLE LANE CLOSED PLEASE USE HARVEST WAY ROAD" (sic) Note the one-way sign ... [more]

Tailgate of Biovest Logistics delivery vehicle blocking cycle route 9am Friday 4th July 2014. The driver didn't think he was causing an obstruction. I think his parking was inconsiderate and potentially a hazard as the tailgate was not very ... [more]

Another place in Cambridge where a cycle route and a bus stop happily co-exist!

The southbound redmac cyclelane on Trumpington Road is in poor state and it is narrow: here it is only 40" / 102cm.

Utilities access in the verge. There are more on the other (west-side) of the road as well. Moving them would be very expensive, and they would stop the laying of foundations sufficient to support the weight of motor traffic. However, could ... [more]

Could this verge be reduced to create extra width? It is more-or-less level with the road at this point.

The land on the left is suspected to belong to the council. Could it be reduced to provide additional width at the junction?

The end of parking and start of the left-turn queuing lane. Suggestion is that at peak this is full, and would seriously affect junction capacity if removed.

This bank cannot be touched by the proposed segregated cycleway. It meets the level of Hobson's Conduits and provides seepage for it. It would be extremely expensive to reduce, and therefore cannot be used for space re-allocation.

Bus stop on Trumpington Road poses a problem for space re-allocation for proposed segregated cycleway. Timetables suggest at least 10 buses an hour.

When planners give up planning: Cyclists dismount sign on a cycle route. If the County wants to waste money on a sign here, it should be a "road crossing" warning.
