65645Photo #65645Hall Green Station - bike rack and pigeons

Location: , Birmingham City (England, United Kingdom)

At Hall Green Station. Decided to go to Gravelly Hill.

While I waited (one train every hour) I took these.

I got the 12:05 to Birmingham Moor Street.

Some people still don't know that the ticket office closed on a Sunday (hopefully they eventually notice the ticket machine).

Problem
general
58871Photo #58871This narrow lane allows cycles to cut through between Saint Vincent Street West and Ryland Street, whereas motor traffic has to take a considerable detour. I am not sure if it was originally intended as a cycle path, but it has good separation from the pavement by a kerb, so that it is clear for visually impaired users where the cycles and pedestrians will be.Other:
Good practice

58867Photo #58867This is a contra-flow cycle lane, which provides a very useful cut through. And there is a diversion set up for cycle users that does not involve a dismount sign! A rarity in the UK.Other:

55003Photo #55003Bikes in Victoria Square - Cycle City Birmingham - Nextbike - Aecom

Location: Brindleyplace, Birmingham (England, United Kingdom)

A form of 'Boris Bikes' has come to Victoria Square in Birmingham.

Part of Cycle City Birmingham on April 25-26 2013.

Took these before 7pm, so the events of the day finished at 5pm.

Although some people were getting ready to cycle away from the Council House (as you can see here).

These are the bikes that are like London's 'Boris bikes'.

They were only reserved for Cycle City Birmingham delegates for this occasion! (Not the public this time).

I.e. has your experience with that competing service left you feeling, ahem well, you know!
