Such a joy to discover the cycle-friendly bridleway connecting Thriplow and Heathfield - making possible an active travel journey from Meldreth to the @IWMDuxford where @CambsCC will be meeting next week. @a10cycle

The disused Magdalen Railway Bridge - a footpath, but it links bridleways. The problem is that it crosses the Great Ouse Relief Channel, but the bridge over the Great Ouse itself (on the former Watlington-Wisbech railway line) has been remo ... [more]

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. No details of the reason for the closure (see: #168828; how long it will be closed for, a contact for problems. See also: #169084 and links

The path on the right connects Jessie Street with Prospecthill Circus (at #113826), while the one on the left heads past some of the new housing and onto the Malls Mire nature reserve.

Building work continues on the redevelopment of the Prospecthill Circus area, although I wasn't clear what the purpose of this fencing was. The path could do with upgrading, that may be still to come.

Paths around the north side of the Malls Mire nature reserve are less formal than those around the centre.

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. Map at right angles – not easy to consult. Nowhere for cyclists to secure or lean cycles while they look at the map. (This issue see also: #168889.) See also: #169084 and links

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. This sign is clear: road ahead closed. But you have already made the turn into here by the time you see it. There is a map underneath (see #168887). Easy to overlook as it’s in faint colours. Not ... [more]

Having left Malls Mire nature reserve, the path meets another around the playing fields at Toryglen Road. Over to the right is the path from Prospecthill Circus that is currently being rebuilt.

A path in Malls Mire nature reservce, looking towards the council boundary. It is possible to get across into Rutherglen here, but there's a short section of steep path here.

Malls Mire nature reserve.

Paths within Malls Mire are appropriate for a nature reserve. The steps link up to the path between Prospecthill Circus and Toryglen Road in Rutherglen (that is currently being rebuilt).

The way into Malls Mire is via the forecourt of the nursery building.

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. The diversion sign for the floodworks that started today is for pedestrians. Where is the one for cyclists? Terry Ave its itself a 'destination' for people on cycles, foot, wheelchairs... in additio ... [more]

[Image taken 17.5.21] Skeldergate, York. Terry Avenue closed on Monday, 17 May 2021 for a year for Clementhorpe floodworks. Signs and writing intended to alert people to the diversion and direct them, are too small. No mention of Rowntree P ... [more]

The resurfaced section of the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath will tie into the work at Stockingfield Junction, where a bridge is being built across the canal.

Although the main towpath has been resurfaced, nothing has been done about the poor connection from the towpath to the path to Vaila Street. In addition to local access, this is important for making connections between the canal and Summers ... [more]

A section of Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has been resurfaced, between Cadder and Stockingfield.

[Image taken 16.5.21] Station Road junction with Station Avenue, York. A fallen sign further reduces the width of the pavement and increases the obstructions (there are scaffolding poles) under the City Walls. People are pushing their cycle ... [more]

[Image taken 16.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. There are two table tennis tables in this park. There is around 211cm between the table and the seating. This is comfortable and practical. See also: #167766 and links

The West Lynn ferry takes bikes, for the standard pedestrian fare (£1.20 single, £2 return) but you have to carry them down the steps, and up on the far side - easier to use the bridge a mile or so south.

Some nice ice-cream bikes.

Cycleway in Rome. Quite good although I haven't used it.

Cycleway in Rome. Quite popular while I was there.

Ghost bikes are everywhere in Rome :( There is a protected cycleway mere yards from this location, but it doesn't extend to this point.

this is exactly the opposite of how you’re supposed to built it!

[Image taken 13.5.21] Tanner's Moat, York. The signs and diversion map are on the fencing one panel along to the left of the Environment Agency logo. Is this somewhere people will see the signs (explanation of the works), and the cycle dive ... [more]

[Image taken 13.5.21] Tanner's Moat, York. The sign is very large but people will need to be looking around them to stay safe. See also (sign content): #168886, cycle route map: #168887, location of this information: #168889

[Image taken 25.4.21] Rowntree Park, York. Like: #167764 this is an example of best practice - there is cycle parking where you need it. Also seating. The racks are well used: #166699. (For more images of the table tennis, including measure ... [more]

Health and Safety pretext for refusing bikes on the West Lynn ferry - 'subject to the discretion of the operators' [2021 update - the ferry has a new operator, bikes are carried, but it's a bit awkward due to the steps]

Coldham's Common - one of the tightest curves on the national rail network, and cycle route pass through the cattle grids and underneath.

Field-edge pathway, separated from highway by hedge. Will be very nice when done. Not yet surfaced.
