Cycle route signs at the busway junction.

I think this means cross the road and then turn right on the on-road cycle lane, but it's not clear

Route sign between Coldham's Common and the Newmarket Road roundabout

Signs to and from the cycle route across Coldham's Common Compare with 20 years ago at #7175 and #7168.

Route sign pointing to the Abbey-Chesterton Bridge.

New dead end sign for the modal filter on Storey's Way - the council can be forgiven for not adding an Except Cycles plate in this case.

Unusual cycle route sign - only allowed on private property.

Route sign

Cycle route north from the Five Trees open space.

Start of the improved route from Histon Road to Girton

No idea why this route sign ended up here - it's nowhere near a junction.

Approaching the new 'Dutch-style' Fendon Road roundabout.

Run England arrow on Coldham's Common

Route sign at the motor-dominated Coldham's Lane roundabout

Route sign at Nuns Way Rec

At last - signage at this major junction on the Busway (no idea why there's a bike there).


Taking the opportunity of the Covid-19 lockdown to post an uncluttered photo of the route of NCN route 11 past King's College Chapel, Cambridge

Footpath and cycle route

Pedestrian sign to the Grafton Centre

Belatedly, there's a sign to make clear the new arrangement for cycling towards Addenbrooke's.

Small sign showing cycle route to Cambridge North station. The sign is a bit small for where it is located on the far side of the junction.

Cycle and pedestrian signage on the approach to Cambridge North station from Moss Bank.

Permissive path - not suitable for cycling throughout.

Useful new sign at the bottom, if I'm not mistaken.

Signpost at western end of Carter cycle bridge.

The route signs on this lamppost are very odd: why is it just alongside an arbitrary point in the road here and not at a junction? The sign at the top points to: Route 51 → King's Hedges 1¼ St Ives 13 (via the busway) the larger panel … [more]

Signs for the new access to the Cambridge station Cyclepoint - there's another yellow one for cyclists coming back from the station.

Signs needing attention at the start of The Tins path.

New route from Devonshire Road to cycle parking at Cambridge station.

Small sign showing the new way to cycle parking at Cambridge station - and there's no sign for cyclists aprroaching from Devonshire Road.

Signs indicating the new access to parking at Cambridge station.

New sign I had made :)

TdF starts here - with the riders facing the camera.

Directional signage showing right turn into Adrian Way.

Sign showing routing away from main traffic. It's good to see more of these signs go up, but it's strange that they are in the difficult-to-see dark colours. What's wrong with the visible and familar bicycle blue?

Barely noticeable cycle route sign in Cherry Hinton.

Finally! - after 18 months of drip drip drip campaigning (see #37689), an indication that the National Cycle Network route is not actually a dead end for cyclists. Only on one of the two dead-end signs, but thanks to Sustrans for getting … [more]

A new sign has appeared confirming that this permissive cycle path is now officially a cycle path

Histon Road

I think cyclists on NCN route 11 are expected to cross as pedestrians here. Probably the safest option if you're new to the area.

Signage into newly developed area of the West Cambridge site

Rush hour in Cambridge during the Easter holidays. Series of pictures of everyday cyclists taken on a Wednesday morning in April between 8:40 am and 9:10 am, see also #36584. Here a pointless Cyclists Dismount sign on a national cycle … [more]

Historic sign in a forgotten corner by the Science Park: English, Welsh & Scottish Railway. For the access see >> #36543 <<.

Signage on this very narrow shared use pavement into Cambridge.

Historical signage

Cycleway route signs (with mileages, not times).

Bollards and sign (giving mileages, not times) at the start of the cycleway alongside the guided busway.

The pavement cycleway on Cherry Hinton Road, and the advisory cycle lane on the other side, encroached by the cars.

Route from the Busway to the city.

Route marking on the cycleway.

New Park Street - with sign to Park Street Cycle Park

Thompson's Lane

A series of three rather small and unusual signs direct the cyclist over this pavement, through a hatched bit of car park then through a gap in the hedges and eventually round to the left to get to the cycle parking shown at #28092. Each of … [more]

The start of The Tins path at Burnside. The sign reads "This cycleway will be closed from 10/1/11 for 11 weeks All enquiries 0345 045 5212"

Route signage at the start of the southern section of the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway (CGB).

Continuation markers on the Cambridge south-east cycle route.

Directional signage on the shared-use path.

Yet more confusing signage on King Street - are cycles allowed both sides of the No Entry sign and motorbikes to the right? Shouldn't there be some kind of exemption sign under the No Entry itself?

Signage on the West Cambridge site

Someone needs lessons in logic.

With the removal of the bogus cycle lane sign #16529 new route signs were added at Mitchams Corner to guide cyclist to Milton Road and Chesterton Road East along the front of the stationary store (shared use pavement, but shorter), away … [more]

With the removal of the bogus cycle lane sign #16530 "end of route" signs were added on Croft Holme Lane - #17385. On this section cyclists have to navigate two hairneedle bends with many lorries and HGV. The sign was removed in June 2009 … [more]

Revised council sign to take into account rerouting Route 11 over Riverside Bridge

Signage directing cyclists to the Haling Way / towpath at Penny Ferry, Water Street, Chesterton, Cambridge. There is proposed work in this area and I am campaiging for the cycleway through the carpark area to be clearly marked and … [more]

Green Dragon Bridge, Chesterton, Cambridge

The view of the A10/M11 roundabout (from the cycle/foot-path by the northbound onramp onto the M11) before the road sign was erected

New cycle signage - but pedestrians (other than these PCSOs) won't keep out of the contraflow cycle lane until it's surfaced in red.

Directional signage on Coldham's Common

Directional signage, Coldham's Common

Sedley Taylor Road - a short cut for taxis and white vans, but still a useful route

At last a sign!

Walking and Cycling Routes Take a right to Grafton Centre down Napier Street, and in the distance a sign points you to the left down Auckland Road to Midsummer Common

Cycle route into West Cambridge site, despite the chicane.

A combined walking and cycling sign to Chesterton Road, a quarter of a mile.

Chesterton Hall Crescent

Signage on popular cycle route.

Sign confirming that this path through the Beehive Centre is intended for cycles as well as walkers.

This is where Hobson's Street meets St Andrew's Street. There are no road markings here because it would spoil the look of the college. Many drivers think it is a one-way street and cut this corner into the path of cyclists. See #13872.

NCN51 goes to the Park and Ride site via this path at the end of Tiptree Close.

A cycle path here allows access to Howard Road and NCN 51 from Ditton Walk. Approach the junction with care - access to a busy industrial estate is hidden on the left.

Route sign on Long Road showing right turn into Adrian Way, on the Addenbrooke's site.

Directional signage pointing down Love Lane.

Directional signage

Directional signage

Small and pretty useless route continuation signs.

A terrible photo of this directional signage

Directional signage - ten years later #54548 it has gone.

Wadloes Road exit from roundabout on Newmarket Road

Natal Road meets Perne Road

Natal Road meets Perne Road

Water Street

Hard to see directional signage on the opposite side of this large junction on Coldhams Lane.

Useful cycle route sign, but distance or time would help! Note the annoying motor vehicle stored on and almost completely blocking the footway.

The Cambridge south east cycle route towards Cherry Hinton / Fulbourn uses a short section of shared use footway.

Directional signage showing the way to Queen Ediths.

Directional signage on Greville Road
