Detectors have been installed in the Argyle Street footway at the crossing to Bunhouse Road, not just on the side that cyclists will be approaching from, but also on this side which is not part of any cycleway. The signals remain bagged, ha ... [more]

A detector has been installed in the Bunhouse Road cycleway, but is so close to the traffic signal users will have almost stopped before being detected.

Bike trailer in use at Partick Bridge.

Still no reinstatement of bollards to stop drivers from using this pedestrian and cycle route as an access route to and from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The bollards were removed for the COP26 dinner.

The sign reads "No vehicular access to Argyle Street" but is covered in graffiti. A sign at Argyle Street suggests this is part of the West City Way council cycle route. A case where 'No Motor Vehicles' should be used, and the bollards rein ... [more]

[Image taken 20.5.22) B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The otherwise excellent cycle parking provision needs labelling as cycle parking to dissuade people from returning trolleys here. Other images here today and links: #182710.

[Image taken 20.5.22) B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. No problem with spacing in front (ahead of) the uprights. Compare with: #180534, #177528… Other images here today and links: #182710.

[Image taken 20.5.22) B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. When I first saw the roof I was concerned about the headheight. But the person standing next to his cycle is 6ft. He said he thought it was fine. Other images here today and links: #1 ... [more]

[Image taken 20.5.22) B&Q, Clifton Moor/Rawcliffe, York. The space between the uprights is 128cm. That's practical and appropriate at a retail outlet in a retail park, where you may go with a child onboard, and/or be buying chunky items, or ... [more]

[Image taken 20.5.22) B&Q, Clifton Moor, York. Standard-setting cycle parking provision installed May 2022. (Compare with ‘before’: #175799.) The racks are the Sheffield design. They are close to entrance, covered and are protected by t ... [more]

Shared-use paths on both sides of the Pont de Térénez, Brittany - though there don't seem to be any cycleways north or south of the bridge.

[Image taken 19.5.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. The 'Toblerone' shaped cycle racks don't support loaded cycles. Ie cycle used for utility purposes such as shopping at a supermarket. The uprights are too close together - you can only get on ... [more]

[Image taken 19.5.22] Tesco, Clifton Moor, York. Excellent cycle parking signage: instantly recognisable as: a) cycle-related, b) parking-related, and visible from quite a distance. But terrible cycle parking... #182705. Other images today: ... [more]

[Image taken 19.5.22] Rowntree Wharf, Navigation Road, York. Context: #182120. CYC knocked my first report back. I will re-report it. My tyres are quite wide but my wheel got noticeably ‘held’ when I wheeled it into one of the slots. Sk ... [more]

[Image taken 19.5.22] Haxby Cycleway, rail bridge, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Large amount of broken brown glass. I will report it. Other images today: #182703, #182704, #182705.

Side road for car storage and access to the coast path to Penzance - but not as yet the cycle route.

Charging point for electric taxis on Station Road, Cambridge

New tree planting, with the contraflow cycle lane taking an arbitrary detour around it that I suspect neither cyclists nor drivers will respect properly.

Awkward cycle parking in the underground garage at Clare Hall (where cyclists are supposed to dismount, but there isn't even a speed limit for cars) - also space for cargo bikes etc just to the left.

On-street cycle parking needed - one car space could give safe storage for all these bikes.

Not easy to see, but one sign reads Roadworks from 27/4 for 4 days, the other reads Roadworks from 29/4 for 3 days - and they're both still there well into May.

The North Woodside Road scheme included shortening the length of the road available for driving by extending the cycleway. A zebra crossing has been provided for pedestrians accessing the steps to the supermarket.

The Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road has now been completed. Corduroy tactile paving has again been used erroneously in place of the wider gap Cycleway type. Left and right turns have been banned with the Ahead Only sign.

The new cycle traffic signal at the Maryhill Road crossing on North Woodside Road. Note the Ahead Only sign forbidding left and right turns, including into Hopehill Road for accessing the supermarket.

Tiny Sheffield stands near the rebuilt entrance to Lidl supermarket. These do not support the bike well, particularly when loading shopping.

Construction of the rebuilt modal filter at North Woodside Road is nearly complete. The road and pedestrian traffic signals have been brought into use, but the cycle signals are still bagged up.
