3 inverted U bars beside a ticket office. There are two more bars a few meters apart. They are inside the precinct, so it's pretty nice, but at least these three are placed too near to the wall :S

Contraflow cycle lane but a bit close to the parked cars. Very confusing give way at the end of the cycle lane Would have been better to extend the cycle lane without the kink in it and without the give way. Suggest extend facility beyond t ... [more]

A two way cycle route on the left, and a one way bus lane on the right. Buses enter this lane at speed from a 40mph dual carriageway. Cyclists heading towards the camera are supposed to ride near the white line, close to and unsegregated fr ... [more]

'How to restrict access to a cycle path' by RX51PXF. It was here for several hours, and there was plenty of space nearby if they wanted to be more considerate. Maybe the driver believed they had a 'right' to obstruct the pavement and droppe ... [more]

Nice use of LED lights in the dotted white line for the advisory cycle lane. Can't understand why this advisory feature is only part time from 7am to 7pm - does anyone know if this is unique and/or legal ?

The Friends Meeting House does provide cycle parking stands on the far left of this picture. Unfortunately they are in a dark unfrequented area, and the limited natural surveillance is restricted further by the large 'advertising' board. Th ... [more]

There was no obvious explanation of why this cycling sculpture is here.

When someone asked me what are the advantages of the Bickerton over the Brompton, I said "the 1970s and the 1980s".

This gate was provided after a successful campaign by parents to provide a useful rear entrance to the school. It is only unlocked at certain times, but means that children can arrive at the school along the cycle route rather than via the ... [more]

Here's another example of no entry except cycles. I'm not sure of the exact location but its near the Fallowfield Loop railway line in Manchester.

Cycle lane within bus lane. Note the way the bus lane red marking has only been added just either side of the line, thereby avoiding issues about streetscape appearance.

Hybrid cycle lane - cycle lane continues across junction, maintaining priority over sideroads.

Parking bay provided on other side of hybrid cycle lane. (Potential dooring zone issue but the cycle lane is wide.)

End of hybrid cycle lane - merges back to road height gracefully.

Merge from hybrid cycle lane back onto the road (in distance). Not quite clear why it needs to narrow.

Merge onto slightly raised hybrid cycle lane

Merge of cycle lane at crossing.

Detail of slightly raised hybrid cycle lane continued from photo #17223. Seems to use a solid white line, so presumably is formally a MCL, as well as no park signs (not that space for unloading would be useful in this location).

See previous pictures #17222 and #17223. This is the continuation of the cycle lane. Notice how much road space has been given to non-car transport.

Interesting but apparently controversial road layout, where a bus zone on the left half of the road takes up most of the space, and all other traffic, including cycles goes to the right. Cyclists have a choice whether to go through the b ... [more]

Hybrid cycle lane - on-road but some protection from the traffic. Close up of detail of this particular solution. The raised height may not be the best solution for this kind of provision.

Hybrid cycle lane - on-road but some protection from the traffic. Merges back onto the road height, maintaining priority over sideroads (unlike pavement-style provision).

Well intentioned but useless cycle parking. The picture demonstrates how insecure this is. Totally unsuitable for leaving bikes overnight in what is a new residential development.

Pinch point; there is a space left to the left where a removable gate could be put back in place if motorbikes create problems.

This sign should really read 'Cyclists give way to walkers'
