Bizarre few bike racks half way across this dead end entrance.

Cycle parking partly replaced by disabled car parking, to replace that beyond the new King's Parade security barrier.

Cambridge station ‘square’

Fixie Location: Cambridge, Cambridge District (England, UK) outside Corpus Christi College

Blazing vine Location: , Cambridge District (England, UK) England can't compete with New England's autumn colours but all around Cambridge the vines are catching fire. Most of them are on venerable college buildings, but this beauty i ... [more]

Great to see that the area of Mill Road by the bridge has at last reopened after the fire. Shops much easier to access now.

King's Parade

Silver Street Bridge

New traffic calming on Devonshire Road, Cambridge - won't this make things worse? Taxis will constantly brake and accelerate, and will also cut in on cyclists to find the smoothest (fastest) route.

The whole of Station Road is a disaster for cycling - but for some reason they've resurfaced the Tenison Road junction.

Buses often wait here, impeding the Ridgeway cycle crossing - but this bus has stopped well clear, in fact it had to reverse to get moving again.

The nearest crossing to the Eddington Avenue junction.

No motor vehicles - much better for cycling now (compare #4366 and #4362) the chicanes are absent, but violation by mopeds mean residents are asking for physical measures.

Nothing here to warn drivers of the cycleway merging onto the road just beyond that big sign.

Hemingford Road

P in marked areas, but nowhere for bikes on this street.

Possible location for Street Cycle Parking

River Lane

Traffic monitoring camera recently added to Fen Road at the junction with Izaak Walton Way.

Simpers Walk double yellow lines this end avoid access here - but parking is allowed across the far end.

Service road near the east side of Cambridge Station - which may one day become an entrance.

Great Eastern Street - loads of bikes outside the houses along here and an edited speed limit sign. More sign graffiti at:

Cycle route around the back of the Grafton Centre. Fifteen years previously: #4816

Christchurch Street

Budleigh Close

Collier Road - with a contraflow cycle marking

Willis Road - the one way arrow in the distance on the left verifies that this road is still a one way street, with no contraflow for cycling.

Collier Road - two-way for cycling.

Shelford Road

Shelford Road

Central cycle lane.

Cambridge Road changes to Shelford Road.

I think the red section of the road indicates car parking - is that right @CambsCops? @camcitco? @CambsCC? Scotland Road. #cycling @camcycle Note: this is actually Green End Road.

Unusual wheel holder seemingly fixed to the footway. The groove is a bit too wide and a bit too shallow for a typical cycle wheel, so perhaps this is for some of powered two-wheeler.

Bollards on St. Mary’s Street

Bus service on Mill Road

This is what Mill Road looks like when England are playing a knock-out game in the World Cup finals - no motor vehicles, a few cyclists - but it could be like this all the time with a closure near the railway bridge.

Lots of bikes parked on the footway in Norwich Street.

No cycle parking signs, near Cambridge Deaf Centre.

Contraflow cycling Norwich Street, Cambridge Fantastic! Such a small, simple, but incredibly important breakthrough. No entry, except cycles... in the UK! Thank you to whoever is responsible.

I wonder if this No Right Turn sign will get a cycling exception.

Mill Road eastbound at the junction with Ross Street. The same location an hour later: #98132.

The entrance to Ross Street from Mill Road, there's a sign indicating contra-flow cycling in there. Now that Ross Street is becoming two way for cycling I wonder what the junction treatment will be like here. It turns out that I didn' ... [more]

Contra-flow cycle marking in Catharine Street.

Contra-flow cycle marking in Sedgwick Street.

Except cycles at last!

Unfinished markings on Thoday Street.

The road in front of the Grad Pad. Undoubtedly in need of improvement. It also gives an idea (I hope) how much space there might be once this site is redeveloped.

Is this a two way street? There are No Entry signs at the far end (see #96839).

Jesus Lane

High Viz Trinity Street

New bus stop on Brooklands Avenue

Newmarket Road where a cyclist was killed two nights ago. See #95138.

Just to note the issues before we had bollards at the Perne - Radegund - Birdwood Road roundabout. Cyclepath, what cyclepath? Nah, it's for car parking.

Cherry Hinton High Street

I think the bus stop here is designed to hold up traffic by being only one lane wide, in an attempt to prevent this new development from becoming a 'rat-run'.

A new iteration of Cambridge's Station Square, presumably trying to make it work properly.

A new iteration of Cambridge's Station Square, presumably trying to make it work properly.

The Madingley Road access to Eddington has been designed for high volumes of fastish motor traffic, but to be fair, the road then narrows and curves, with a central reservation, to reduce speeds.

Road closure (7am-7pm) with rising bollards, not yet in use (will they ever work?), at the new Eddington Sainsbury.

New toucan crossing of SE arm. Thankfully this one is not staggered, for once.

Finally the potholes have been fixed and surface smoothed out in preparation for the opening of the Ridgeway.
