The shared-use signs seem to have been turned around here.

Nasty sign prohibiting play with threat of £500 fine. PROHIBITED ON THIS AREA THE PLAYING OF ANY BALL GAMES AND GAMES BY ADULTS AND CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 10 YEARS West Midlands County Council Act 1980 Section 6 Maximum Penalty £500

Random annoying Cyclists Dismount sign, right next to a cycleway

“Beware of cycles ahead”

This former railway line goes beneath Bolton Road and would allow for a direct connection to Blackleach Country Park. Bolton Road is very busy, this would create an excellent cycle route if built.

Westmorland and Furness. Foxfield near Broughton in Furness West bound on A595 near the junction with with Foxfield Road Warning signs are obscured by vegetation. Outside the entrance to Eccles Rigg Leisure LA20 6BN. Both the warning of a … [more]

[Image taken 31.8.23] Clifton Backies, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location.] The post – rusted – is still in situ however there is no direction sign attached. I could not see if the information element (see a too low res image: … [more]

The cycle parking at the National Trust's Godolphin House is at the far end of the disabled car park. Obviously. No need for any signage then. Unlike for the walking routes to the route.

No Entry - Except Cycles plate missing - and cycle parking

Witchford Road into Ely where the city has put up a sign proclaiming free parking.

Manchester NCN 85 route sign pointing 180 the wrong way

Trafford near Manchester Cavendish Street Stretford . A sign instructs drivers to park one side only. Clearly not enforced.

Eaton Road SALE contraflow opportunity for cyclists. "Except Cyclists" sign required underneath. Warning signs required on the traffic flow side.. This may require a TRO (ideally on an area wide basis) which is a lot easier than you may … [more]

Except Cycles plate needed

Right turns from Renfrew Street into West Nile Street are now legal for buses, so why not for cycles? Buses on diversion were using this turn back in 2018, before the signs were changed.

This is a two-way cycle route (V61), in theory, so there needs to be an Except Cycles exemption plate.

There'd be no need for a Don't Lock Your Bikes Here sign if there was any cycle parking nearby!

Signs like this mean 'We know there's a need for cycle parking here, but we're not going to do anything about it'.

Letter to residents illustrating the disjuncture and confusion between Cambridgeshire County Council and the Greater Cambridge Partnership

Cycling Prohibited sign - but it's ok for a car to be parked there.

Very unhelpful sign - the cycle parking is at the far end of the car park but they don't want cyclists to go that way, they have to use the road or dismount and use the footway.

No Cycling sign on Brandon Parade, Motherwell. The precinct is one of only a few traffic-free streets in the busy gyratory system around the town centre.

Why on earth is there a no cycling sign sign here? The Bay cycleway follows the main road at the T junction

Route 70 on the national No Cycling network

Leeds to Bradford cycle superhighway CS1, Bradford Road, New Pudsey


A recommended route for cycling that is also a dead end? This needs an 'except cycles' plate.

Warning about toxic water in the harbour.

Three no entry signs but this is a cycle contraflow.

The sign says 'Cycle Lane Closed Ahead' but the section has far as Bedford Lane is as good as open. The closure is at Norfolk Court. No diversion information is given, but the only likely diversion is into the main carriageway, so this sign … [more]

[NOTE: This sign was no longer in situ exactly a week later on 21.5.23] [Image taken 14.5.23] Malton Road, Huntington / York. Road works notification but no contact details. Unnecessary route closure and other problems for NMUs here during … [more]

[Image taken 13.5.23] Foss Islands Path, York. At this entrance to the 'spiral' at the junction with Denning’s Yard access/Wigginton Road/Crichton Avenue, there were already four (filthy old) signs but another - on the vertical end post - … [more]

Very badly faded No Cycling sign and an escooter on this bit of scrub near Willow Way, Water Eaton, Bletchley.

No pesky bikes. Bicycles chained to these railings will be removed

The sign reads: 'Changes in Mount Tauro already in 2024. More comfortable paths and new recreation areas' - with an image of a cyclist, but a huge park is entirely fenced off for the construction of a new National Concert Hall, including … [more]

Cyclists Dismount sign, alas, on the good spine route south to Bratislava-Petrzalka station (EuroVelo 13)

Cyclists Dismount sign

Pedestrianisation (without an exemption for cycling), Belper

Repair works being undertaken by Cambridge Water. Looking at how much of the road ahead has actually been taken up with these roadworks (roughly half) I'm at a loss, once again, to understand why it is that cyclists are asked to dismount.

I'm not sure which road crossing this refers to.

As usual, the roadworks signs are concerned only with motor traffic.

Hard to see why motor traffic would need two lanes from 7pm to 7am, but not during the day.

No Entry, but Please ride considerately? Clearly an Except Cycles plate is missing - but the design of this whole route is based on it being closed for major events and used for motor vehicles.

Two weeks out of date

[UPDATE: On 2.2.23 the utilities company responded: "I have spoken with the site manager and he will speak to team on site to get things rectified as soon as possible."] [Image taken 1.2.23] Skeldergate, York. Where should this sign be? … [more]

[Image taken 1.2.23] Skeldergate, York. Damaged Northern Gas Networks signs with their name and contact details. This is surprising. Northern Gas Networks usually set standards for people to be able to see which company is doing the works … [more]

[Image taken 1.2.23] Skeldergate, York. Two ghost signs. One obstructing the pavement. One in the kerb further restricting the width of an already narrow route. Are they part of the Northern Gas Networks works signage? (See: #190584 and … [more]

[UPDATE: #190995] [Image taken 25.1.23] Foss Islands Path junction with Wigginton Road link, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] You would come off if you cycled into this thick mud. On foot you’d get very muddy. A child might … [more]

Clearly not closed

Cyclists are supposed to ride on the cobbles and dismount on the smoother surface, That's not likely to happen.

Also presumably access for cycles to the parking outside the Grafton Centre.

Presumably there should be a '100 metres ahead' plate - otherwise access to the Sainsburys parking places would be illegal Mon-Fri 7am-7pm.

A vandalised 20mph reminder sign, with a contradictory 30mph sign on the joining side road. Also, a commercial vehicle parked on the footway, including tactile paving, at the junction.

Stopping trains on the Cardiff-Penzance route, with reasonable provision for cycles, are being partially replaced by Class 80x Intercity trains, with limited provision for bikes which must be reserved and hung up in a small cupboard - a big … [more]

[UPDATE 12.1.22: This sign has now gone.] [Image taken 6.1.23] Bootham/Bootham Bar, York. Askham Lane is nowhere near here. Another temporary sign/Aboard that is clutter at best but also misleading and a hazard. How did it get here? There … [more]

Contraflow cycle lane blocked by temporary sign.

No Entry except residents - 'and cyclists' plate needed for access to the new off-road route east from Mont-Saint-Michel

Well and truly blocked

Pedestrians and cyclists on the almost invisible cycleway have priority over the road from the left.

Except Cycles plate missing for this contraflow cycle lane

Missing arrow? - the No Through Road except cycles sign refers to the road to the right.

[Image taken 20.11.22] Burton Stone Lane, York. I asked this couple if I could take this photo. They agreed immediately. They are on the pavement on the east side and heading north. They are therefore facing the oncoming traffic. People … [more]

[Image taken 10.11.22] Station Rise, York. This sign is not facing the traffic. So it is not doing its job. But it is not causing a hazard... Context and links: #187649.

Cycles only beyond this point? The one on the nearside of the crossing should not be there, and signs to diagram 955 should have the bicycle symbol with the front wheel to the left. Just after I took the photo, a delivery van driver used … [more]

Lots of No Bicycles signs - wouldn't it be easier just to put in some bike stands?

There are No Cycling signs (in both directions) halfway along the path to the temporary metro station at Hoek van Holland Haven.

Another puzzling sign - Rejoin the Carriageway through a solid barrier ?

Puzzling sign, as cyclists joining the carriageway will be going the wrong way.

No Cycling on the closed road from the new car park to the Cap Fréhel lighthouse. Seems very silly to me, just put in some proper cycle stands there and let people ride.

Restrictions on entry to central Chamonix, but surely cycles are permitted?!

'No Cycling' on signed path from Mugdock Country Park, and no dropped kerb at Stable Road crossing.

'No Cycling' on signed path to Mugdock Country Path.

Construction Traffic Beware Cyclists Going Straight Ahead.

A car-sized gap between the water-filled barriers and the sign-post. The barriers are no replacement for the four bollards that used to be here before COP26.

[UPDATE: On 21.7.22 I saw the Road Closed sign had been removed.] [Image taken 19.7.22] Coppergate (Nessgate end), York. The temporary Road Closed sign is a hazard. It further reduces the already limited space for people turning at a tight … [more]

Sign stating that raw sewage gets dumped into the sea here.

No Entry sign - in fact contraflow cycling is permitted

The Except Cycles plate has been turned around by 180 degrees.

I'm not sure that cycling can actually be banned on this track as it's the only access to some cottages.
