Information on where cycling is and is not allowed in Castle Park.

Route sign for lit route to town centre. The path over the bridge is lit, but not the route through Castle Park or the riverside walk.

An arrow sticker has been added since #21167

A route sign for the route to the right on a square post, but only stickers for the route straight ahead through the tunnel.

A bit messy, but the footbridge across Turner Road from #88392 comes down here, and cycling across it is allowed.

I think this is actually the end of a cycle route, at Colchester (mainline) railway station.

An 'End of Route' sign marks the end of this cycle route, but another route starts on the footway across the road. It can't be related to this one, can it?

A shared-use footway around the Albert Roundabout, but what happens around the corner? Does the lack of an 'End of Route' sign imply it continues, or should cyclists go back onto the road?

NCN route 51 sign at end of bridge now closed except to cyclists and pedestrians.

Start of riverside route to Hythe (NCN route 51)

Cycle Colchester installed a sign here (see #27145) but it has since been removed (or fallen/forced over) and not been replaced... nor has the tree that was there before!

New route sign for Ipswich Road and Leisure centre (it's actually Leisure World).

New route sign outside the police station on the shared Southway path.

New route sign on Boadicea Way.

Sideways route signs at a junction in High Woods Country Park.

New route sign for local destinations, on Vineyard St.

New route sign painted onto the path on the corner of Hunters Ridge and Chinook, for Country Park, North Station, and Town Centre.

New route sign painted onto the path in Tally Ho, for Business Park and Community Stadium.

New route sign for local destinations Lexden and Stanway, on the High St.

New route signs and a 'Share the Space' bollard by the Southway underpass.

New route signs on Queen St.

New route sign on the now shared-use Southway pavement.

New route signs on St Johns Street.

New route sign on East Hill.

New route sign in High Woods Country Park. Shame it is in the style of others in the park (see #20045) and the Garrison (see #21932), that require the ability to read sideways.

New route sign on the corner of Boadicea Way and Layer Road. No mention of town centre on the sign, and no sign of a toucan crossing on Layer Road (see #26298).

New route sign for Stanway and NCN Route 1 on Gryme's Dyke.

New route sign for Stanway and NCN Route 1 near Gryme's Dyke.

Abandoned Sustrans National Cycle Network route sign.

New route sign on Ipswich Road.

New route sign on NCN Route 1, by Lexden Park.

New route sign on Straight Road. Okay from this direction, but from the other, the white sign pointing the same way attached to the lampost obscures it.

New route sign on Heath Road.

New route sign on Collingwood Road.

New route sign at Hythe Quay.

New route sign on Ipswich Road.

New route sign on Cowdray Avenue.

New route sign at East Bay.

Route sign for the University in Swan Close.

New route sign for Town centre, alongside one of the View Finder Trail pictures, on the corner of Kings Meadow.

New route sign for Hythe station and University, on Hawthorn Avenue.

New route sign on the Salary Brook path, for University, Longridge, Greenstead centre, Hythe station, and Town centre.

Route signs around the Garrison have had new timed signs and "finials" attached to their stem. Why does the Council think it's okay for cyclists to crane their head to one side to read a sign?

New route sign for Maypole Green and Friday Woods at entrance to the Southway subway. It's missing the Garrison.

New route signs for the Garrison, Maypole Green, Friday Woods, and Town centre, on Circular Road South. Abbey Field to the right.

New route signs for the Garrison, Maypole Green, Friday Woods around Abbey Field, and Town centre under the subway. Hard to see from Circular Road North, Flagstaff Road, and Circular Road East.

New route sign for Greenstead Centre, and pre-existing North Station one, on St. Andrews Avenue. There needs to be a Town Centre route sign facing Alyssum Walk.

New route sign for Town Centre on the corner of Hickory Avenue.

Route sign for Longridge on Bromley Road.

New route signs for Salary Brook (right) and Longridge (ahead), on Avon Way. There needs to be another sign for Greenstead centre, Hythe station, and Town centre for continuation from #21933.

Route sign for Town Centre on Middle Mill Road.

Route sign for Town Centre directing cyclists into George Street.

Route sign for North Station and Town Centre by Gresely Close.

Route sign for North Station and Town Centre on Peto Avenue.

Inconsistent route signing in Peto Avenue, on the High Woods route: this sign lists the Business park and Community Stadium, but the Country park has been dropped since the last sign (only metres away - see #21173).

Route sign for the Country park, Business park, and Community Stadium, pointing toward Peto Avenue.

New route signs painted onto the pathway at the entrance to High Woods Country Park. The arrow pointing into the park should have been painted onto the road, as cyclists won't be able to read it (or see it) on approach due to the building t ... [more]

Route sign for Ipswich Road, from Cowdray Avenue.

Route signs for Lexden, Prettygate, and Town Centre at the end of Beech Hill.

Route sign for Town Centre on Cowdray Avenue.

New route sign for Town Centre, replacing a much larger pedestrian sign.

New route sign for Town Centre, replacing an 'End of Route' sign (#19735). The 'End of Route' sign on other side of the road remains (#19736).

Finally a new route sign for the High Woods route. When the tree in front of it is in bloom, the sign will likely be difficult to spot.

New route sign for the Community Stadium at the beginning of Boxted Road.

Commemorative Route 1 sign on Brinkley Lane.

Warning sign on Norman Way. The Cycle Lane sign should be arrowed both left and right, as Lexden Road (ahead) has a cycle lane in both directions.

Route signs to Town Centre, Institute and North Station. Who are they trying to kid? See #19739 for the town centre destination and #19738 for the Institute.

End of route sign on North Station Road, the way to town centre from North Station.

Route signs for Lexden, Town centre, Prettygate, and Stanway.

Route signs for Town centre, Maypole Green, and Friday Wood.

Route signs for Town Centre and Friday Wood. (Willows pathway is not a cycle lane, but in theory could be given it is as wide as adjoining pathways.)
