Dropped kerb at Barnwell Meadow where Chisholm Trail will meet Newmarket Road. Significant remaining upstand renders it dangerous for oblique approach.

New dropped kerb at Barnwell Meadow where the Chisholm Trail will meet Newmarket Road. It's not even close to 'flush', and potentially very dangerous for any oblique approach from the on-road painted cycle lane.

Outside Nando’s: the foreground the marker on the ground advises customers to wait there if they are collecting. The next marker indicates where the “Rider” should wait for their next delivery.

“Stay safe on the bridge - Go by car” say some Mill Road traders. Utterly negative message to be turning away potential customers with. How about campaigning positively instead for improved signage, short-stay customer car parking ou ... [more]

Terrible surface here, just where you have to ride to avoid dooring and overtaking motor vehicles

Horrible 20 metre-long tramline in the tarmac, causing instability just where you have to ride to avoid dooring by parked cars and either overtaking by impatient drivers in inadequate space or harassment from behind. Repeated requests to Co ... [more]

There is an advance cycle stop box at these traffic lights, but it was never repainted after being resurfaced several years ago. The cycle lane leading to it is also almost invisible. The road is narrowed here by a central island. Major haz ... [more]

Believe it or not, there is a painted cycle lane here, but drivers cannot see it and often encroach

Merging from shared-use path onto road can be scary, not helped by missing bollard at tip of build-out kerb, giving drivers no warning of cycles appearing

There will be roadworks on Histon Road for the next year - as promised there is a contraflow (southbound) cycleway, but all the signs ignore the existence of cyclists.

There are wide hatched areas on both sides of the carriageway that could be used for pop-up cycle lanes, but they wouldn't be very long and the rest of Madingley Road would still be a nightmare so is it worth it?

New slightly wider cycle lanes on Shelford Road, except through the crossing.

New slightly wider cycle lanes on Shelford Road - and a No Road Markings sign because the crossing hasn't yet been marked.

It's hard to tell whether the cycle lane markings on ths new road have worn away already or, like those on Shelford Road, been removed by the county council.

The queue for the drive-through lane at McDonald's - 3pm so not blocking Wadloes Road, but apparently it does at busier times.

Hatching of the car door lane.

The markings have been removed at this crossing over Shelford Road, as have all the cycle lanes on both sides of the road. There are white markings indicating the county council intends to replace them.

The cycle gate approaching Trumpington has been removed, as have all the cycle lanes on both sides of Shelford Road. Does anyone have any idea what the county council is doing here?

Cambridgeshire County Council has removed the cycle lane markings on Shelford Rd, apparently as part of their response to Covid-19 - no idea what they plan to replace them with, but it doesn't seem to make much sense as yet.

Too much space for cars in this new development

NCN route 11 uses this toucan crossing, although the sensors/timing favour motor traffic.

Cycle lane markers painted by Extinction Rebellion to urge the county council to get on with taking space from cars for Covid-19 social distancing.

No dropped kerb - it would have been quite easy to send the Tesco/Riverside cycle route this way

Car-dominated new mini-development near Addenbrooke's

Empty streets during lockdown

Within spitting distance of the guided busway cycle route, but this is a typical South Cambs car-focussed development.

Within spitting distance of the guided busway cycle route, but this is a typical South Cambs car-focussed development.

The marking here has been changed from left turn and straight on to left turn only making this horrible roundabout even more of a racetrack.
