Another Cyclists Dismount sign on Station Road, Cambridge - not currently operational, of course.

If cyclists could be encouraged to go via the private Latham Close it might do something to alleviate the notorious peak cycle jams at the Brooklands Avenue/Trumpington Road crossing.

If an Except Cyclists plate could be added here (via the private Latham Close) it might do something to alleviate the notorious peak cycle jams at the Brooklands Avenue/Trumpington Road crossing.

An unofficial looking sign has recently appeared that reads 20mph please slow down. Possibly related to #104097?

No motor vehicles as a rule - but there's still a reminder to look out for cyclists and joggers

Warning signs about the combined cycle and pedestrian crossing.

Maybe somebody has noticed that having an unprotected right turn on NCN route 11 right before a roundabout is very dangerous.

Blazing Saddles has closed, but offers a mobile service instead.

This exception for cycling is great, but the necessary changes have not yet been implemented on Hemingford Road.

Mill Road, no right turn. (The except cycles sign is for the no entry into Kingston Street.)

NO IDLING Turn off your engine and protect the environment At least the stupid bollard at #4835 is gone.

The sign says that this new cycle parking is only for users of the Islamic Centre across the road.

The clash between the cycleway sign and the end of cycleway sign (#12277) has finally ended - time and rust have done what regular contact with council cycling officers couldn't do.

Sign related to #101963

The ongoing struggle to stop commuters and language students from using workplace cycle parking (NB at 19.30).

#Eddington #cyclepath signage overkill. This, whilst attempting to be very accurate, looks quite silly and does create a poor visual experience. https://t.co/zNlV9S7EPs

Sign trying to keep cycle parking opposite Cambridge station free for retail customers (and overnight) - it mentions the covered cycle park but should give better directions, as the people wanting to leave their bikes here are probably the ... [more]

No Cycling on the Great Kneighton construction road.

Congestion Charging is coming to Cambridge - or at least to its car parks.

Alternating shared-use and segregated cycleway signs - needless legalistic confusion.

New contraflow markings on Norwich Street, Cambridge

New contraflow signage on Norwich Street, Cambridge

New contraflow markings on Norwich Street, Cambridge

No cycle parking signs, near Cambridge Deaf Centre.

No cycle parking except ... (so probably unenforceable) At least it suggests a place to park or stand your cycle around the corner.

Posted without (much) comment. :¬)

"No Bicycles here please" Space reserved for Great St. Mary's Church posters only.

Let academic brainstorming by West Cambridge Lake not be disturbed by cyclists.

Segregated shared use sign - I suppose the trees and poles form the segregation, but it's not clear. I suppose this is not a public highway and the University can do what it wants.

17,755 examples of good practise. (Seen on Bidwells hoarding.)

Sign warning against rat running through Addenbrooke's

Initial consultation method for a new bus shelter.

I'm sure the cycle sign is new - but I have no idea what it's meant to mean - there's no cycle lane or real cycle route here.

The new signs at Cambridge station do recognise that bikes are permitted here.

Major Event signage three weeks in advance.

No Entry and 'Beware Cycles' on the shared-use footway - but I'd like to see this as a two-way access for cyclists to Long Road Sixth Form College and the whole Biomedical Campus.

So the take away from this is don't go away for 8 or more days...

Cyclists Please Dismount at this entrance to Selwyn College (and No Cycling sign inside)

New development promising 136 secure cycle spaces in the basement and 20 above - not bad.

The whole Addenbrooke's site is now closed to motor vehicles except for access - but cyclists can pass through freely.

At last! Four years after I started badgering the cycling officers this link to the guided busway cycle route and NCN route 11 has finally been signed.

No Cycling signs, probably put up by St Faith's School - there is a bus/cycle lane on the road, but of course parents want their children to cycle in segregated space.

Published by North Newnham Residents Association, there are several of these posters along this road. It would be much more helpful if it gave a url so people could find out more. Do they mean the Busway (Cambourne to Cambridge which may/ma ... [more]

New bollard and white paint at western end of the Carter cycle bridge.

Bizarre changing of a speed limit in a quiet residential area. All the residential roads here have 20mph now as standard, except the one heading off to the left here. I suspect it might be because it's a private road.

I expect this little wooden sign saying No Cycles will still be here after all the millions of pounds of development at station square. Note added 2016-12-05: I was wrong - it had gone a few weeks after I took this. Note added 2016-1 ... [more]

Relict road signs at this closed road exit onto Madingley Road

Actually cyclists have a choice whether to join the carriageway or stay on the shared-use path at the Park & Ride junction.

Signs on all three approaches to the M11 bridge at Coton, as the ground is dropping away from the bridge,

Downing College is all about cars, with pedestrians and cyclists at the bottom of the hierarchy

"Carrying the bikes up the stairs is not covered by Health & Safety"

Clearly plenty of station users are unaware that there's a big new covered cycle park.

Cycle park direction sign during changeover arrangements at Cambridge Station

Typically unhelpful End of Cycle Route sign.

Roundel on the footpath on Christ's Pieces.

TRO notice regarding the introduction of 20mph speed limit in South and West Central Cambridge. Wrapping the sign round a lamppost doesn’t make the information easy to read, sadly.

Emery Street: Old no entry signs in grotty condition.

Two way in the dead end :-)

The forest of no entry signs along St Philip's Road. It is two way for cycling - predating legislation that permits 'Except cycles', and so instead there are cycle bypasses.

Sign confirming that contraflow cycling is legitimate. It was at this corner that a driver shouted at me that this was a one way street.

At last the old No Entry signs have been replaced with new ones that have 'Except cycles' panels - great! But that's about 7 months after the (pathetically inadequate) sharrow was added on the road surface - see #63237. I feel that I' ... [more]

Definitely not a cycle route then.

Curious sign which reads (sic): 66 Claud Butler Bike! This bike was stollen + has been recovered by its lawful owner. Any problems call the police! 99 It took me a while to work out what it was talking about. The conclusion I cam ... [more]

Oh no it isn't! Not for cyclists and pedestrians. See #65237

Except cycles signs have appeared, and the no entry signs themselves have been replaced. We know this because the old one has been left behind. However there's still a keep right arrow there on the right hand side of the image, with "One ... [more]

Motor vehicle parking signage, including for a car club on St. Philip's road. The graphic in the top image shows the a car parked with one set of wheels up on the footway. I like that because it is a little subversive - suggesting that t ... [more]

Yes, Mill Road is awesome, but it needs a little more cycle parking please! (That is someone else's bike leant against the tree.)

The bollards which restricted cycle access through here were removed a few years ago. Since then there have been some grumblings about cyclists passing through. A couple of signs like this have recently been added to remind people of their ... [more]

New signs on the ornate railings outside the Fitzwilliam Museum. 'Opposite' does not always have bike racks however...

Instructions for using double-deck cycle racks - but clearly plenty of people can't be bothered or can't find spaces.

NO BICYCLE AGAINST THE WINDOW PLEASE Seen outside a restaurant on Mill Road. Technically the bike was compliant as it was resting on its stand rather than the transparent wall.

There appears to be a new 'No overtaking' sign on Milton Rd, which we were told couldn't be used http://t.co/Bwn0FBIP71

Sign shows this street is two-way

Probably sensibly-worded sticker.

The text of this notice outside the Fitzwilliam Museum reads: PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE BIKES ON ANY PART OF THESE RAILINGS THEY WILL BE REMOVED TO ALLOW FOR ONGOING WORKS They are being beautifully repainted with green and gold, and it ... [more]

the "busway - look both ways" sign is new from early June'14 Possibly as a result of a bus/cyclist collision in May'14 (see #58923)

Bus lane markings standardized, see http://www.rtaylor.co.uk/newmarket-road-markings-farce.html

Silverwood Close The note appeals for considerate parking. During the middle of the day this place is dominated by parked motor vehicles - presumably here to avoid paying for parking on the nearby shopping areas - which allow parking ... [more]

Think! advert from the government, reinforcing stereotypes that only cyclists sometimes don't stop at red lights illegally

The sign here marks the start of an area of footway parking. There's no sign on the other side of the road, but footway parking is permitted on both sides.

The blue signs on either side of the road here seem to suggest that this is the end of the area of footway parking.

The two blue signs here mark the start of footway parking. The have the text: P In marked areas

The sign that reads: P In marked areas refers to carriageway parking (not on the footway). There's also a sign which means 'One way traffic'. A little further down the road at #57087 slightly different signs permit footway park ... [more]

Lots of signs at the end of Wettenhall Road - oh and some bikes parked on the footway.

Cavendish Road The asymmetric signs both have the text: P In marked areas But the sign on the left refers only to carriageway parking, whereas the sign on the right permits parking on the footway.

The guided bus triggers an automatic switch in the lights, stopping the traffic on Milton Road for the guided bus to cross without much delay. As bicycles are not allowed on the guide way, cyclists have to press a button and wait.

The green sign announces PUBLIC FOOTPATH Fen Rivers Way Waterbeach 4 miles, Ely 16 miles (Also cycleway to Waterbeach) normally cycling is not permitted on a public footpath. The lack of any cycle symbol specifically permitting ... [more]

Cycle diversion due to scaffolding over the contraflow lane on Corn Exchange Street - it would help if it specified that access is open as usual to the Grand Arcade cycle park.

End of cycle diversion due to scaffolding over the contraflow lane on Corn Exchange Street. And shocking state of the crossing.

The sign reads: TAXIS St Andrews Street Rank FULL This is the councils initiative to reduce the problem of overranking in that street. Taxis are supposed to queue here at this message board - which is similar to a traffic signal. Th ... [more]

Cyclists should continue on to the footway - the narrow road seems to be one-way in the other direction.

See #54634.

A path called Velos Walk - but cycling does not appear to be prohibited by any signs.

Footway and cycle lane both closed.

A sensible diversion, except for the fact that there's no need to dismount to use the crossing - it has green cycle lights.

Staff parking only at the new University Sports Centre. There are also ten disabled spaces behind the camera, but no other public parking.

Perhaps we could have more of these signs around, given the dreadful state of the verge around the city.

Odd sign. Perhaps better wording would be "Take care of people riding and walking" rather than implying "cyclists" (whatever "they" are) are like a dangerous animal!
