Trumpington Cycles - open during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Covered Sheffield stands at Scotsdales Garden Centre, plus some wheelbenders added at either end. And of course I cycled home with the grow bag on the rack.

Undercover parking in the multi-storey carpark

Undercover caged parking in multi-story carpark

The bus stop on Lancefield Quay, at the popup cycle lane, is still in use so there is a gap in the cones, and as soon as I turned around to take a picture of the end of the popup cycle lane, someone was trying to park a car there, in the wa ... [more]

Although the popup cycle lane has been marked for westbound use only, there is quite a bit of use eastbound, particularly here where the parallel NCN75 Clyde Walkway has been shut due to a building fire.

The popup cycle lane at Lancefield Quay has "No Entry" markings on it, but the parallel NCN75 Clyde Walkway (visible to the right) is closed due to a building fire.

The council has stated that the popup cycle lane is for westbound use only, but this section in particular at Lancefield Quay is seeing significant wrong direction use, since the only other alternative to the closed Clyde Walkway is to cycl ... [more]

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane at Lancefield Quay, where the parallel NCN75 riverside cycle path is shut due to a building fire.

Unlike the temporary arrangements westbound, there is nothing to say cycling is allowed on the Fastlink busway eastbound.

The end of the Fastlink busway on Anderston Quay, and in the distance, the recommencement of the popup cycle lane. The traffic signals detected my approach, and are quick to change.

Cycling legally on the Fastlink busway at last! (But only in this direction.)

Caught out by the road markings, or a change of mind when the traffic signals changed? The sign reads "Cyclists use Fastlink Carriageway", and a tiny "& cycle symbol" added between the "Bus Only" wording.

I guess the road markings are to remind bus drivers turning onto the Fastlink busway to look out for cyclists, but they appear to suggest to cyclists to go straight on, when the yellow sign says to use the busway.

The popup cycle lane recommences in Broomielaw, after George V Bridge, while NCN75 U-turns down a ramp onto the riverside path. The footway along this section ahead is no longer shared-use, but still sees people cycling along it, even with ... [more]

The popup cycle lane continues onto Broomielaw, passing under the Central Station bridge.

The popup cycle lane in Clyde Street.

The Clyde Street popup cycle lane, and a closed layby.

The recommencement of the popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, after Victoria Bridge.

A traffic lane removed on Clyde Street and turned into a popup cycle lane.

The popup cycle lane in Clyde Street, to provide extra capacity for NCN75 on the shared footway.

The plastic ramp hasn't stayed in place, but the sandbags are better than nothing for bumping down the kerb. An asphalt ramp added on top of the road surface would be better.

Start of temporary cycle lane on Clyde Street. People joining from either the carriageway through the cones, or from the ramp from the shared footway.

NCN75 busy at Glasgow Green.

New painted cycle lanes on Chesterton Road. A slight improvement on the previous situation but not sure why they are advisory when the road is so wide.

Nuttall Way, Edge Hill, Liverpool

This is where the driver of this van and trailer decided to stop and have a phone call. Completely blocking the cyclepath and pavement. I had to stop and ask, then shout "hello" as he wasn't paying any attention to other traffic. Why not st ... [more]

Parking on the footway seems to be part of the plan at this new development in Trumpington.

New development in Trumpington with car parking but no cycle facilities.

Next level anti cycling infra on a path near patchway, south glos. Maybe they had a anti social behaviour issue with youths riding tanks?? https://t.co/K5XzFqNo4Y

This is more like it! 😊 shame it starts as randomly as it stops - how about more of this @GlasgowCC and some permanent barriers? Encourage healthy transport! 😁🚴‍♀️ https://t.co/4J5XNGvche

Nuttall Street nearly finished. I wonder if this is going to increase motor traffic on CS1. Traffic previously exiting Hoxton here will now continue north along Hoxton Mkt then north up Pitfield/Whitmore. https://t.co/gCo73zc4IH (Spellin ... [more]

Gravel path

Gravel path

Hard to do physical distancing when the bushes are so overgrown. This is a key route into the Beehive Centre, used by most people walking from Petersfield.

Slippery Slope and loose gravel which is not very good to use a Bicycle upon. Tarmacadam needed at the Thonas Telford Bridge.

Take the rough or the smooth? Left a nice surface to ride a normal Bicycle. Right an awful rough and ready track which is not good enough for normal Bicycles.

  • Icon 118502 Block all through traffic between London Rd and Old Rd to create a Low Traffic Neighbourhood, stopping rat running, while creating more space for social distancing and reducing pollution. Add bike filters to encourage cycling.
  • Icon 118501 The pavement is extremely narrow all along this stretch and its almost impossible to walk on sometimes with cars parked on pavements and certainly no possibility for social distancing.
  • Icon 118500 Add a left turn cycle filter lane turning out off Morrell Avenue with a give way sign. Like the traffic lights on the junction of High St and Longwall St. No reason cyclists couldn't safely filter on to St Clements St while giving way to traffic.
  • Icon 118499 Cyclists expected to dismount as the corner is too narrow. This is hopeless when towing a trailer in particular, especially as you have then got to get going up a hill. A wider path and proper separation of bikes and pedestrians is needed
  • Icon 118498 No pavement on this side of the road, which means multiple road crossings in order to get to Crook Hall
  • Icon 118497 The lane should be closed ro motor vehicles except for access and limit dropped to 30mph. This is a major cyvle route between Romsey & Southampton. Loys of walkers and cyclists using now, but cars csn speed down ar 60mph. Very few houses or businesses need access.
  • Icon 118496 The pavement is damaged and sunken due to heavy trucks parking here during housebuilding directly opposite. The pavement is only on one side of the road and is not 2 metres wide to allow for physical distancing.
  • Icon 118495 The stretch of road between the climbing centre and tunnel needs improvement. It has been very dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians when vehicles have been parked adjacent to the community garden which has narrowed the road and reduced visibility. Pavement widening and/or cycle path would be good, or more creative solution like trees in planters and bike storage would achieve the same result. Vehicles must be prevented from parking there .
  • Icon 118494 Half pavement is taken up with overhanging bushes.
  • Icon 118493 The seafront is narrow and dangerous with cars parking and overtaking. Please convert the car parking on the South side of the road, between the pier and the Pavilion tea rooms where it is narrowest, into a protected 2-way cycle lane.
  • Icon 118492 Currently there is not space for pedestrians and cyclists on this shared path, however the road has fast cars/trucks/buses so does not feel safe for cyclists to be down on the road. A designated cycle lane may make more cyclists confident to cycle on the road, leaving the path safer for pedestrians.
  • Icon 118491 No pavement on very narrow and busy road. Add pavement to protect pedestrians
