The new GCP/Marshalls cycle barometer - which is only recording cyclists heading towards the town centre. Not sure if this was intended. To clarify - the number recorded does not change when cyclists head to the left, away from the centre.

Convertible space (marked as wheelchair space on the outside) on a Class 700 Thameslink train - there's not quite enough space for a normal bike and a human being, you have to sit with your legs out to the left.

Finally, a better shot of this space opposite the shops on Magdelene Street. (see #72630 to see what I mean.) This would be a good spot for a few bike racks, I think, given the number of fly parked bikes round here.

Cambridge Independent article about a student petition to improve this junction.

Rising bollards at entry to new infill housing development with no cycle parking visible.

The official vision of cycle space on the new Thameslink Class 700 trains (see #100135).

If there's a pram/buggie by the fold-up seats on the new Thameslink Class 700 trains that's it, there's no dedicated cycle space. Just use the doorways as normal in this area.

A full-length (12-carriage) Thameslink Class 700 train, and this was the only cycle marker I could see, Inside the space is pretty useless - most cyclists will just use the nearest door space as usual in this area.

Two way cycling now allowed on Union Road in Cambridge - handy! https://t.co/opxnoLhquP

Wheelchair space on the newish Class 387 trains - not quite long enough for a standard bike, but useable.

In fact bikes can be locked to the expensive new railings (although it took a while) - see #97037

Expensive railings installed to stop people locking their bikes to them... in theory... see #97038

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

Bridge to the nature reserve -- at least it'll be nice when it's done

Interesting desire line, maybe, on the way to the bridge over the brook.

Bridge to the nature reserve, not yet connected to anything on this side.

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

Someday this may form part of a 'strategic cycleway' on the west side of Hobson's brook. This might be a semi-decent stab at filtered permeability / cycle street network. The bollards are OK. Maybe a little close, and of the unforgiving ... [more]

Someday this may form part of a 'strategic cycleway' on the west side of Hobson's brook. This part was done differently to the others, and it's clearly incomplete.

Close up of paving light. This one is, obviously, not working but it does mean you can see how small they are. (LED bulb?) See also #95284

These would need to be viewed in the dark but these small lights seem to be quite effective, but subtle. An idea for more rural locations, perhaps?

Kenzies coach driver parks up illegally in Hills Road cyclelane whilst getting coffee. An increasingly popular stopping place. @LibralLady https://t.co/crxyXmwxRo

New bus stop bypass on Hills Road Cambridge, complete with step free crossing.

Ramp for wheelchairs rather than cycles.

Pedestrian-oriented plaza at High Cross

Warren Road / Eastfield link.

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

DG17 WEK in Yet More Illegal Cyclepath Parking. Repeat offences bcos they can get away with it? https://t.co/qmHfI8BS1B

HS15 MKA and AE65 SXK in Yet More Illegal Cyclepath Parking on Water Street/Fen Road https://t.co/iWvwRCMN4o

@IanGManning Sadly, the experience today. NU10 JYP and NY59 AXA Illegally stopped in cyclelane. The same builders. & shows walking issue too https://t.co/aO8fLqtqx8

Bicycle repair station with pump, tools, and stand on Cambridge Business Park.

African Road

Interesting kerb bulb-out to help people walking across the street.

School-run on Milton Road

Only one bollard is necessary to prevent vehicle access here. This would create less conflict, as cycles and wheelchairs etc could pass simultaneously each side of the bollard.

This is a two lane entrance to the traffic lights. The queueing traffic to the left is doing a right turn which lights are only green for a short time. The other lane is clear to use with a green light. Apart from a bus across both lanes do ... [more]

Barriers on Histon Road to Borrowdale path which prevent its use by larger bikes eg. cargo bikes and bikes adapted to carry children.

Bollard on narrow stretch of City Road where it joins Prospect Row by the Free Press (pub on left). Bollard and kerbs make this an awkward corner.

Eastern end of the segregated cycleway - the pavement is shared use after this point.

These vehicles are parked illegally - the double-yellows aren't being enforced yet.

End of the new off-road cycleway.

One for fans of Vulpine /Rapha? (Though undoubtedly not made by either.) Spotted in the gift shop Jacks. Wins points for the cap.

Cut-through from Fen Road, Cambridge

Could there be pedestrian/cycle access from Moss Bank to the new Cambridge North station to the west of the rail lines?

Fen Road level crossing and Cambridge North station - could there be pedestrian/cycle access to the station to the west of the rail lines here?

Footpaths in Bramblefields Nature Reserve

It would be good to have a direct link to this cycle shed in the Cambridge Business Park - but that would require a crossing of the busway.

Outspoken's headquarters at the Bike Depot

Tiny bit of well used cycle parking in Felton Street.

The new ticket hall at Cambridge station - it's actually possible to get to the ticket machines (and out again) with a bike now.

There may be cycle parking at the rear, but the car storage is far more obvious and convenient.

Houses with garages. No visible cycle parking. Two minutes walk from Addenbrooke's.

OWL BIkes at Addenbrooke's - no indication whether this is to drop off bikes as donations or perhaps to collect repaired bikes.

Carter bridge by night

Approaching Devonshire Road from Carter cycle bridge. Two concrete bollards have been removed and new, white, ones added with clear markings, instead.

Tandem performing the standard footway/speed cushion/road manoeuvre onto Grantchester St.

Much better than https://cambridge.cyclestreets.net/location/83577 where they'd illegally coned off the cyclelane.

Illegally parked in cyclelane. Highway Code Rule 240 (backed up in law) You MUST NOT stop or park on a tram or cycle lane. http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_069860 And the 1988 Road Traffic Act, section ... [more]

CL Travel unloading on Hills Road. The road has "no unloading" marks all along apart from paintwork that used to indicate a pedestrian crossing. The pedestrian crossing was taken out 6 months ago but the paintwork hasn't changed to reflect ... [more]

No Pedestrian Exit, let alone cyclists - but this should be a useful link to the cycle parking at Downing College

Approaching Rustat Road from Carter Bridge showing bollards and road markings.

Approach to Carter Bridge from Devonshire Road, showing bollards put in May 2016 (work not yet complete)

I've always thought it would be very helpful if Cambridge University could somehow put in a cycle route between the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Engineering Department, to link to NCN route 11 and avoid the double roundabouts.

Access to station from cycle park (and car park) shared with pedestrians and not very wide. There's more space to the right but it was fenced off on 23 January 2016.

Route from temporary cycle park. There's plenty of space, on the right, for a decent width cycle path rather than making cyclists share with pedestrians. Okay the space may be used for building work sometimes but it wasn't in use on Saturda ... [more]

Missing and broken cycle racks at Cambridge Station temporary cycle park on 23 January 2016 making secure parking difficult.

These are the bollards noted in Robin's photo #67374. Not only silly, but they look lethal to me. If anybody collides with one of these, the plate on top could take quite a slice into flesh.

Cambridge morning rush hour

The cycle path along the back of the lakes is closed for 2 months for widening. Hope they do a good job. http://t.co/YpaKbRwaQs

bus stop bypass in use

bus stop bypass under construction already in-use

Fixed penalty notices are now been issued to anyone parking on the cycle lane @ Dame Mary Archer's way @ Addenbrookes http://t.co/otDvNqCvev

Coe Fen. Shared-use 2.25m Family Group with mother 'protecting' youngest. What if they met another?

Shared-use NCN11 2.5m Caution needed if approaching walkers from the rear (they'd 'just' moved across as they thought they were spoiling my photo, and hadn't seen or heard the bikes)

NCN 11 on 'New Bit' Shared-use 2.5 m. enough to ride two-a-breast if no others around
