Why I am not in the bike lane👇 with a trailer and someone shouting out the window as they pass it didn't seem like a good idea to see if I could enter the lane again without touching a bollard or wee orca with one of my wheels or the bottom … [more]

How to light a park well … Finsbury Park tonight … Location not precisely known

To the person who went to all the trouble to put carpet grippers between the bollards on Goldsmith Row Hackney go f*ck yourself. Removed, despatched

🛑 In a trial later this year, cars will be prevented from driving through a large area of Barton Hill, Redfield and St George. The plans have sparked passionate support and equally intense opposition in #Bristol. Here's the full story: … [more]

"Why don't cyclists use the cycle lanes?" Well, this, I kid you not, is the designated cycle lane on the busy A4074 between Wallingford & Benson. Narrow, overgrown, unpleasant and unsafe. Come on, @OxfordshireCC, we can do better than … [more]

Huntingdon High Street - Can anyone explain what this sign means and when considerate people on wheels are welcome?

Starting to take shape now as the centre lines are added and the bollards are completed #gibraltar

I'm sad. These signs are going against Highway Code 195 that states that cars must give way to pedestrians and cyclists on the parallel crossing or waiting to cross. Please can we get the priorities fixed? JJ Thompson Avenue.

What a melancholy comparison. It’s time, lavishly & liberally, to replant street trees, widen pavements, rip out ugly lights & reclaim streets from their highways officer overlords Dickens Street, Toxteth, 1911 vs 2023 📸 via the great … [more]

10 years ago today we installed NYC's first Citi Bike station. They said that bikes would bring traffic chaos, danger & lawsuits. What happened instead was history: 178 million trips, 100k rides daily on 28k bikes, turning NYC into one of … [more]

The state of this. A pedestrian crossing at the top of Sloane Street with a major traffic junction. No pedestrian lights. This is @TfL responsibility to make safe (which it is not) @willnorman @lastnotlost @RantyHighwayman … [more]

New cycle track to Clacton from Jaywick. Used to be just that wall on the right and some sand. Now solar powered lighting ad a super smooth path lots of residents are using @Essex_CC

New cattle grids by the Mill, eliminating the decades-old tradition of awkwardly squeezing your bike through the swing gate against the flow of pedestrians

Voi e scooters neatly docked @ACarpenDigital Somewhere on Madingley Rise.

I found this road a few weeks ago when I asked satnav to get me from Prestonpans back to the A1. Seeing this sign, I looked it up and found an interesting story...

The Chisholm Trail was busy this evening…with people and birds 🌿

Thanks I hate it Deansgate

Today, the council was awarded 100,000 GBP to fund an 'options analysis' for a crossing of the A10 near the Ely BP Garage for non-motorised users. Let's hope progress on this project can now be made!

“Climate Emergency Service” 😕

@DexterJohnstone @min_esh @RuthMilsom @timhuggan Yes, why is this? The cycle path stops when you get to Sheffield. @CllrGeorge @Henry_Nottage

Visited a 123 year old cycleway today… Cyclists Avenue 1900

One of the most dangerously tinted vehicles we have ever stopped!! A shocking 28% on the front windscreen and only 6% through the side windows. Location: somewhere in Staffordshire. This driver may as well have been driving with his eyes … [more]

'National Cycle Network' 🙄

What was once a traffic lane on #Coventry’s ring road now reduces severance and improves safety for people cycling. Great to see a pop up scheme made permanent, made possible with ATF funding.

Just been away after leaving my bike for 1 night at @SouthernRailUK's supposedly secure cycle store at #Brighton to find someone tried to steal my bike by anglegrinding through its rear lock damaging the frame @sussex_police … [more]

Here’s a photo showing our upgrade of the walking and cycling route linking Bursledon Road to @Southamptoncc Cycle Network route 3. We’ve also repositioned the streetlights and improved the signage on it. … [more]

Stockport's new interchange Bridge is kinda there. Hopefully will provide a frictionless route for walkers and wheelers between train station, bus station and town! So far I'm a fan.

Our segregated cycling route on Lancaster Road has been incredibly well received, but I’ve listened to users who feel the De Montfort Street junction could be safer - I’ve signed off a plan to improve the situation for all road users with … [more]

It looks like @StockportMBC PARC strategy (pedestrian area reallocated to car) is going ahead. I'm not convinced reallocating what little pedestrian space there is to cars is the best strategy. But the council seem convinced it's the best … [more]

@Cambridge_Uni - when did the pavement on Philippa Fawcett Drive become a car park? Would it be ok for me to park there too or is it reserved for fellows? @camcycle

Hey @MyGlasgowCC this cycle lane at Blairdardie westbound feels like riding on snow with ice underneath, time the lane was cleared?

Leicester's London Rd cycle tracks now have new bollards.

I'm a cyclist approaching this junction. What on earth am I supposed to do?!

Saw this on a local Facebook site (not my photo). Bike hangar broken into in order to steal bikes. Denmark Road, Carshalton.

There's a marked parking space yet the driver still feels the need to use part of the cycleway for parking. Coundon cycleway.

Amsterdam will open its huge underwater bicycle parking at Centraal Station on 26 January: local TV station AT5 was allowed to take a look inside.

Cathedral Square in Worcester seems to have become a car park. Very handy for shops and restaurants.

A thank you to @CambsCC! Work to improve signs at a Histon Guided Busway crossing has also removed an unnecessary barrier, improving the accessibility through this link.

New steps at Skelton Grange road bridge demonstrate just how inaccessible they are for so many users. @HarworthGroup putting profit before people. Profits of 94M in 2021 . New dedicated walking & cycling bridge needed here. … [more]

A former patch of green used for parking behind a multi-storey car park. Lack of provision isn’t the problem, attitude is the problem.

We had it. We lost it.

The Lawrence Hill Lido is still open for business. @BristolCouncil, do we know when this will be fixed, please? Someone made a video for BBC Bristol: … [more]

@WRSalford Nothing new under the sun.

If you think LTNs are new in Salford, you'd be wrong This filter has happily been in place for a few decades, without much fanfare

A road notorious for traffic congestion is about to be widened. That means that a pub opened in 1784 is about to get flattened. So sad that this is how we treat our history.

I've heard all about it, but this evening was my first time riding the new separated bike lanes on St Kilda Rd! How good! You can ride side by side having a conversation, my favourite 😍 See also #187671 for video … [more]

Glad to see the cycle parking finally installed & being used outside Commute Cafe in St Ives ( a 'toastrack' so can be removed during the Michaelmas Fair)

Scenic it may be but this is unacceptable for a major cycle route. Please can @CambsCC grit the Coton Cyclepath to the West Cambridge site? ⁦@camcycle⁩

This level of car ownership would be pitiable but understandable in a public transport desert far from amenities. But this road is on three bus routes with several more via stops at the junction at the bottom, and it’s about ten minutes … [more]

@camcycle Loved my snowy commute this morning, though the bike was really difficult to manage on side roads. Riverside cycleway through Midsummer Common was gritted and somewhat ok to ride.

@camcycle The return of the dangerous bollard on the city side of the Milton bridge.

Right London. One good thing about the weather is it lets us see in *real life* how much space the traffic really uses. This is called a ‘Sneckdown’ Your mission - if you have a vantage point - is to send me all your Sneckdown photos for … [more]

It’s Friday afternoon, so who wouldn’t want a bit of informal side street zebra action from Cardiff (Llandaff North & Whitchurch)? Three locations, four crossings.

The National Cycle Network signs finally removed from Bridge Street in Peterborough. Sad to see but a positive message from @Sustrans_East. Let’s hope @PeterboroughCC listen and create a proper cycle route once and for all. … [more]

Cambridge Congestion, Wednesday morning And the next day:

This is the solution for where the cycle path meets the road. Precise location not yet known.

The new footbridge connecting Merrick Road to Park Ave in Southall was officially launched today! The next phase will see a lift installed, as well as even better public squares opened up at either end. Great to show @willnorman around … [more]

Another day, another 3 PCSOs are waiting to fine cyclists trying to filter safely, turning left from Hackney Road into the high-traffic sewer of Shoreditch High Street. If only there was the initiative for safe cycle infrastructure along … [more]

Cone on @BristolCouncil when will the Lawrence Hill Roundabout Underpasses be fixed? Been flooded for weeks now, is there an end in sight? @CllrJama @YassinMohamud20

@dakota158 @HounslowCycling @LBHF Further along near Chiswick Lane.

East Cambs District Council has approved a £250,000 grant to go towards a suitable crossing of Burwell Lode along the line of the National Cycle Route 11.

Cambridge Congestion, Saturday.

Hi @TrinCollCam your colleagues at @CambridgeSust have retrofitted the correct priority onto the side streets in Eddington. Please could you do the same for @CamSciencePark?

1000 out of 1200 kids in this school in #Oulu, #Finland, arrive by #bicycle, even in winter. 100-150 walk, rest by ski, kicksleds and car. This day it was -17°C. @WCCCalgary2019 #WCC2019 #wintercycling Metsokangas … [more]

@David_McHardy @camcycle Same on Hills road this evening, all the way from Long road to Cherry Hinton road.

Elizabeth Way pedestrian paced the whole way, continuing onto East Rd. Elizabeth Way Bridge

Cambridge Congestion on my 9-930 commute. Arbury Road

Who on earth thought this was a good idea? Perhaps they’ll try putting one in the road next…

📌 Skehard Road access to Blackrock Greenway 📷 Photos sent to us by a member Water fountain is great addition along with the bicycle service stand.

Cardiff Council are trialling simple zebra crossings in a number of locations in Llandaff North and Whitchurch. This one has just been put in on the corner of Bishop's Rd and Merthyr Rd. Drivists on the local Facebooks are livid. … [more]
