Electric vehicle charging point on Riverside

Clara Rackham Street, Cambridge

Purbeck Road, Cambridge Lined with bollards, presumably to prevent motor vehicles being driven onto the footway. The alcove on the right is marked out with an OFO symbol - for the abandoned ofo bike scheme.

Nightingale Avenue, Low Traffic Neighbourhood. The right hand side of the road is full of stored motor vehicles. There's a double yellow line there but it was overpainted with black but the black has worn out in places. See #150668. A ... [more]

The existing no-overtaking road markings on Mill Road Bridge, which had got very faded, have recently been repainted.

Come right in and cycle into @Metro_Bank Cambridge. Ty. More trips by bike = less pollution (good for climate), more physical activity (better health) and greater visibility of more cyclists (safer travel for all) @camcycle https://t.co/l7 ... [more]

Press the button and look back to read when the display changes. A new crossing at the turn into Worts Causeway from Babraham Road.

Recent build-outs at the junction of Wentworth Road and Oxford Road. The cycle stands from #176315 have been relocated slightly onto the build-out.

Rock Road

New tree planting, with the contraflow cycle lane taking an arbitrary detour around it that I suspect neither cyclists nor drivers will respect properly.

Traffic calming and protection for pedestrians, presumably.

Missed opportunity at the Schlumberger Research Centre for cyclists to go straight ahead and park near the entrance.

Shared space, by the look of it, in the new Knights Park development at Eddington

The new Knights Park development at Eddington - every house has a garage, so I assume the cycle parking is hidden inside.

The Storey's Way modal filter is (for historical reasons) right on a blindish corner - would it be better to the north, or the east?

There are reports of drivers from Roseford Road not having visibility along Histon Road without nosing into the new cycle lane and forcing cyclists onto the carriageway.

I’m honoured and surprised to win the @camcycle Magazine Photo of the Year Award! The awards to inspiring people followed a brilliant talk by @adamtranter, on using comms to create #ActiveTravel Recording here: https://t.co/iPDPgu ... [more]

Harvest Way contraflow cycling.

Cargo bike crosses from Coldhams Common into Cromwell Road.

Hemingford Road was supposed to have been changed to two-way cycling several years ago, but this approach from Coleridge Ridge is guarded by fading no entry signs on a yellow background.

There was talk of parking being banned here (except for disabled blue badge holders?) but nothing has happened.

Cross entrance road from the M11 at the A10 roundabout.

I'm not sure why you'd place a modal filter so close to a speed hump, but anyway, it's now been made permanent.

Warwick Road meets Histon Road and Gilbert Road at the Cyclops junction.

#CamRideHome at Birdwood Road

Mill Road bridge, the bus gate marking has been replaced overnight with a 20mph roundel and there’s ahead only at Devonshire Road.

Mill Road bridge, the bus gate marking has been replaced overnight with a 20mph roundel.

Another useless attempt to stop oversize vehicles from slamming into the railway bridge. It’s aimed at preventing a bridge strike as seen in #154713 but is doomed to being as useless as the bells were in #54344. If you don’t belie ... [more]

Impressive number of escooters by this bus stop on Mill Road.

Coldham’s Lane from the train.

The Histon Road/Canterbury Street junction, which one local driver is struggling to find because the double yellow lines continue down the road.

Advisory cycle lanes - because of course people have to be able to drive to get their Sunday croissants. So much effort and disruption to produce so little improvement.

Shows new raised-table junction (Canterbury St/Histon Rd) with continuous kerb along Histon Road. Local resident felt the junction was 'invisible' (and therefore dangerous).

The south end of Histon Road, currently with the left-turn lane closed and cones partially blocking the southbound exit (currently for cycles only).

Histon Road, now with two wider cycle lanes and a carriageway without a centre line.

Except Cycles plates have at last reappeared about a year and after I reported they were missing. See #137443.

Imaginative redecoration of a bollard in Sedgwick Street, Cambridge.

The speed cushions in the middle of Bateman St have been replaced by partial-width cushions, much easier for both cars and bikes. The three to the east are full-width.

The three speed cushions at the east end of Bateman St have been replaced by gentler full-width cushions.

Electric scooters in Trumpington

I see the point, but I wonder how many drivers on this short stub of private road bother going around to the left - there's not much need. On a bike I certainly wouldn't bother.

Madingley Road

New crossing island at the west end of the shared-use path on the south side of Madingley Road, Cambridge.

No sign of the no entry and cyclists dismount signs 😎 See #21552. In fact they were removed by 2011, see #28078 and #17473.

It doesn’t look like there’s any intention to have a cycle route through here.

Histon Road cycleways built to the minimum width, and with no protection from close passing motor traffic. A short section of single-yellow will allow motor vehicles to park in this cycle lane.

This is mainly a car-storage area for houses which open on to the other side - but two unfortunate residences can only be accessed via the far end of the car park.

Fen Causeway has been resurfaced, although there was no real need at this end - but not the tatty shared-use path, of course.
