Three cycle stands at the Plymouth station car park - and sign saying there are more on Platform 4

Shared-use towards Plymouth station - but in fact it ends immediately and cyclists join the road.

Attractive road closure and modal filter

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

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

Traghetti are paddled across the Grand Canal in Venice, weaving in between the oncoming motorized Vaporetti - which act as the city's public system. A traghetto is a gondola used as a ferry to cross the canal for 2.5 Euros. Two oars peop ... [more]

Gondolas - well it is Venice. The church is Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Miracoli and in the film "Don't Look Now" the character played by Donald Sutherland is seen running over that bridge.

Piazza San Marco - dominated by the ugly Campanile.

I saw the same bicycle-themed display in another branch of this shop in Venice - where cycling is prohibited.

Washing strung across the street and the only obstacle is a dis-used well.

Hand cart used for refuse collection.

[Image taken 25.9.22] Screwfix (Clifton Moor), Stirling Road, York. Other image this issue here today and links: #186301. My bidon is around 7cm wide which means this pothole is around that deep. More than enough to unseat someone and damag ... [more]

[Image taken 25.9.22] Screwfix (Clifton Moor), Stirling Road, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location] How do you get a cycle into these spaces? The access between the supports and the hedge is just 74cm, there’s very little room to m ... [more]

[Image taken 25.9.22] Screwfix (Clifton Moor), Stirling Road, York. The supports are not long enough… you wheel a cycle into cycle parking (or reverse it) and you need space in front of or behind the wheel. If you don’t have an integral ... [more]

[Image taken 25.9.22] Wigginton Road, York. This sign has an exploded sandbag beneath it. The bag is not doing its job – holding the sign in situ. It is creating a skid hazard. Disappointing, after the one opposite was cleared up: #186086 ... [more]

[UPDATE: First the sign, then the sand disappeared. I hope the latter was cleared up by humans rather than dispersed by wind, rain and/or the movement of people over it. But another instance has appeared on the opposite corner: #186293.] Im ... [more]

[Image taken 24.9.22] St Andrewgate, York. A stashed or abandoned sign, and a sandbag. Signs left like this can become hazards or be used as tools to destroy property or as weapons. Sandbags can explode (see: #186293). The grit released is ... [more]

  • Icon 186325 Widen pavement to enable people to cycle from the Alban Way to Highfield Park off road. Given the worn out grass here there is a major desire line.
  • Icon 186324 Entrance to park blocks access for tricycles and cycle trailers, so discriminates against families and people with disabilities.

  • Icon 186322 Good morning, This morning I stopped to get a coffee at the new Gail's at the train station. The development in this area is great and is very attractive for commuters, but there is not enough bike parking for the shops and offices along station place. If people are to be able to use this area effectively there needs to be more appropriate places to lock bikes whilst making use of the facilities. Thank you for your consideration. Best wishes, Imogen

  • Icon 186277 Hostile road to anyone but cars. Not cycle or pedestrian friendly. Lots of traffic and pollution where children cross to go to school and commuters to train station. Chaotic at school drop off and pick up times. Cyclists have to use sidewalks because there is not protected bicycle infrastructure.
  • Icon 186273 The advisory cycle lane heading westwards here encourages close passes from cars, there often isn't space to pass safely, and the road surface is poor.
  • Icon 186257 August 2022 - Liskeard Town Council is proposing to limit Charter Way (the A390) to 30mph and to add a segregated cycle and footpath, plus a two-way cycle path on Plymouth Road and other changes including more 20mph zones.
  • Icon 186251 There is no safe access to the church by foot after the existing walkway ends.
  • Icon 186243 Cycle channels on bridge poor as too close to the bridge parapet so you have to push the bike leaning over. Of course this also means the route is inaccessible to trikes, families with child trailers and anyone with a disability as the ramped sections of the bridge are still stepped!
  • Icon 186242 Permissive path. Not clear if this is a cycle route. Needs clearer signs. If not a cycle route it should be as easily wide enough.
  • Icon 186241 Phone to get into the museum, which is actually a good method of allowing cycling and walking easy access.
