I think this is a sort of bike shop. (This photo was swapped with #599 on 21 Oct 2020).

Some wonderfully adroit sculpture provides handy cycle parking here in Dover for this cyclist who's about to swim over the channel to France (not shown). https://allpoetry.com/A-Shropshire-Lad #86175

Cambridge Retail Park Advisory sign suggests that cyclists stick to that narrow lane. "Cyclists use cycle lane only" and there's a 5 mph sign.

Newly marked narrow cycle lanes on Cambridge Retail Park. The white line goes right up to that kerb at which point the cyclist vanishes!

Cambridge Retail Park A new narrow cycle lane has been marked out, narrower than the space allocated to the footway. Narrow cycle lanes draw cyclists to the edge of the road where they are less visible to vehicles parking / unparking.

A bit more progress on the southern bridge abutment

Posts set into river bed - line of reinstated river bank?

Count the bikes in Kingston at 10am today. Imagine how much space it would take up if these people all arrived by car instead?

Cyclists coming off the Arran ferry at Ardrossan, while the next batch waits to board.

Finishing work still required at the southern end of the Garscube Road protected cycle lane. It will connecting into the underpass and other existing cycle infrastructure through Cowcaddens.

Progress on the Garscube Road cycle lane.

It may not be finished, but a dropped kerb at Panmure Gate would be nice. The path now leads to the Claypit Local Nature Reserve.

Cycle parking, steps and a ramp at the new Panure Gate entrance to the Claypits Local Nature Reserve. The boardwalk leads along the side of the canal and connects to the new bridge at #153304.

The new bridge across the canal at the Claypits Local Nature Reserve is now open.

Route sign directs cyclists across a level crossing with awkward kissing gates either side #153284 , dismount, then walk across a pedestrian only bridge rather than ride a short stretch of carriageway. And just in case folk might think this ... [more]

Kissing gates on either side of the level crossing. Awkward at the best of times, but completely bonkers if a group of cyclists is trying to get clear the railway when the red light starts flashing and have to slowly negotiate the gate one ... [more]

NCN 1/11 south of Kings Lynn (passing Kings Lynn power station - to the right) - a route not known to OpenCycle Map [it's there now!]

Lovely redmac and nice cycle signs, but the cycle lane could be wider, so it seems wide enough for this trailer.

A road bridge with tram tracks in the middle of it, in Cologne!

km 599 on the route along the Rhein (Rhine) - which actually veers away from the river quite often. (This photo was swapped with #153494 on 21 Oct 2020).

  • Icon 153595 Yhhu
  • Icon 153594 Yhhu
  • Icon 153593 Greetwell Road, Nettleham - needs cycleway/footpath - for safety and access to public footpaths. Traffic moves very fast along this road and this would give residents a safe option to walk to the field paths along this road to make safe circular walks from the village and for cyclists to safely ride along this road and then to join the existing cycleway on the A158 into Lincoln City. This would make cycling and walking safe and pleasant.
  • Icon 153592 Exit from A&E/LRI unsafe
  • Icon 153591 It doesn't feel very safe walking on the road to the goat farm or the Nursery.
  • Icon 153590 No lights and is unsafe through winter months
  • Icon 153589 Poorly lit, new footpath has no lights at all. Is unsafe for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Icon 153588 The informal grassy path connecting the north side of Aldi (MetroCentre) to the path and cycle route near the River Derwent needs formalising and properly paving. A dropped kerb is also required. It's doubtful that Aldi would object as it means they will get more business from people on foot or on bike.
  • Icon 153587 Despite the horrendous (especially for cyclists and pedestrians) roundabout junction (A694/B6317) near here, the opportunity to exploit the cycle path passing under Hexham Road has not been taken. Steps (and possibly non-stepped paths) could be put in place on both sides of Hexham Road. It is even possible that the existing wide arch could accommodate a lane traffic for south-west bound traffic on the A694 (i.e. an underpass), as well as the existing cycle and pedestrian route. That would make remodelling of the roundabout junction easier, such that pedestrian crossings could more easily be accommodated. This is one of those situations where an expanded highway facility for motor vehicles would improve the provision to cyclists, pedestrian and horse riders. Some have even suggested two-way traffic under the arch, with the cycle path moved a few metres nearer the River Derwent (using the next under-bridge along) but that would create junction design challenges at two nearby points on the A694, whereas the south-west-bound only underpass would only need simpler merge and de-merge designs.
  • Icon 153586 The original Watergate Pit miners’ path across Washingwell Woods is in a terrible state, particularly the steps up the north side of the valley, despite absorption of the area into Watergate Park. It is a paved path that used to be lit but is now in a dangerous condition. Pedestrians are forced to pass very close to each other while they try to step on the remaining hard steps and surfaces. Either new stone, brick or concrete construction is required, or all the existing hardcore could be taken out to remove the trip hazards, and wooden steps (with cinders or grit in-fill) put in place. The terms “miners’ path” could be used to promote the completed facility, which provides an excellent walking link between southern Whickham and Lobley Hill. How wonderful it would be if the path was lit, like a hundred years ago.
  • Icon 153585 The existing path is becoming overgrown with grass and road verge becoming narrow in places, it is a shared cycleway and footpath and is now not wide enough for people walking and cycling to pass each other safely
  • Icon 153584 Narrow, poor quality pavement. No cycleway. Upgrade pavement to cycleway, widen and resurface.
