Hopefully tongue-in-cheek! CAUTION Sound horn when leaving beware of soporific pedestrians and lunatic cyclists

Notice in Culver Square; it's a bit much banning cycles altogether!

It would be nice if Cycle Colchester designed some custom "Improvement Work" signs, rather than use these standard boards that give no insight into the project. This example is close to the Southern Slopes entrance of High Woods Country ... [more]
