Vision Park, Histon - barriers at the far end of this path are clearly meant to exclude cycles.

These barriers are clearly meant to block cycle access to Chivers Way and Vision Park, although the companies there have enough cycle parking.

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. This cycle-ped-wheelchair route is used by wider and longer designs including trikes, recumbents, sociables on loan or on trial from local cycle businesses such as Get Cycling www.get ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. Looking towards Bishopthorpe Road from the racecourse access. The cycle-ped-wheelchair route (see: #168854) crosses from left to right (the black and white barrier). More images here ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. The road is open to motor traffic today as - despite the corona pandemic - there was horse racing. Looking towards the racecourse. The cycle-ped-wheelchair route (Trans Pennine Trail, ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. When open to motor traffic (as here) the black and white gate limits the gap to 96cm at its narrowest. It is also noticeably uphill to reach the cycle-ped-wheelchair route beyond. Mor ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. The black and white gate limits the space (downhill in this direction) to a gap of 145cm, decreasing to 100cm and then 96cm. More images here today see: #168847 and links.

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. When this (black and white) gate is open to road users it creates a chicane that funnels all users of the route (to/from the College, the Tesco on Tadcaster Road) and people on the Tr ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. The barriers on this route (Trans PennineTrail, NCN65) are intimidating, tight and on a noticeable incline - downhill in this direction. More images here today see: #168847 and links. ... [more]

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. The gate across Racecourse Road is open to motor traffic - it is the black and white barrier in this image. See: #168847 and links.

[Image taken 12.5.21] Knavesmire, Racecourse Road, York. The gate across Racecourse Road is open to motor traffic. When open to motor vehicles it creates a third barrier for people using the cycle-ped-wheelchair route parallel to the raceco ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] York St John University, De Grey Street, York. These seem like a modern take on the old fashioned long discredited ‘wheelbenders’. The only contact with the rack is the wheel – could a heavy cycle fall and buckle ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] York St John University, De Grey Street, York. This cycle is not supported other than by the front wheel. I can't see any benefit of this design of rack over Sheffields (see: #168843). I feel this is reflected in the fa ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] York St John University, De Grey Street, York. These are in the same location as the Sheffields in: #168843 but only one person is using these. I think this is due to the design. See more images of these racks from toda ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] York St John University, York. Sheffields (cycle racks) on De Grey Street. Easy to access for most people and for most designs of cycle. Compare with: #168844. See also: #168845, #168846

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. The sign just visible on the lamppost where a track joins the road: #168840 is helpful. On the road, even if you get this far, there is no indication there’s any reason other than for a service ve ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. If you join the shared use path (there’s no drop kerb here) you can see Dunelm Mill to the right. If you continue in that direction you find a comparable sign to the one in the image. The sign: #1 ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. If you get this far, there’s a shared use cycleway on the righthand side. This new sign (April 2021? May 2021?) faces the road and points to Retail Parks in both directions. See also: #168837 and ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. There are still no clues this is anything but a service road. The ramps are uncomfortable on a cycle. Despite their existence drivers overtake. See also: #168837 and links

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. This looks and feels like a service road. It feels hostile on a cycle. See also: #168837 and links

[Image taken 9.5.21] Stirling Road, York. The only sign refers to a ‘service area’, ‘units’ and 'deliveries'. Turn left and keep left however and there is a retail park (DfS, JYSK, Pets at Home, Wilko…). There there is no signage ... [more]

The current arrangement at the south end of Histon Road - only cycling allowed southbound. The sensors don't seem to be detecting bikes - there's a red light until someone activates the pedestrian crossing to the left.

[Image taken 27.1.21] York, Clifton Moor retail park near Dunelm furniture and home furnishing outlet. The shared use link on the far side of the crossing looks like a service road to the rear of industrial units. In fact, as the new sign o ... [more]

[Image taken 5.5.21] The Knavesmire, the racecourse, York. This was a pair of staggered barriers. One has been removed. You can see the dark square of tarmac where one end was buried. This makes it much more comfortable and straightforward ... [more]

[Image taken 5.5.21] The Knavesmire, the racecourse, York. The tarmac has been extended (previously bare earth and sometimes mud showed the additional space people need to get through). This need that is not provided for is visible in (too) ... [more]

  • Icon 168869 The traffic lights on the railway bridge are only changed by the detection of a car or larger vehicle. If a person is on a bicycle they have to wait for a vehicle to change the lights. This is particularly poor as it is on one of Coventry’s designated cycle routes.
  • Icon 168836 Santander Cycle station here please.
  • Icon 168835 Access to ebikes nearer to residents
  • Icon 168834 Add path way so access for people in this location to access Hullbridge safely.
  • Icon 168833 Have a pathway side of this road, so be safer for children this end of Hullbridge to get a bus and into Hullbridge area.
  • Icon 168832 Needs a safer way to cross the road as fast road as cars drive fast and very unsafe.
  • Icon 168826 Continue footpath from Blountswood to Wadham Road. Allowing pedestrian access to existing houses on Lower Road
  • Icon 168822 A path from Blountswood to Wadham Park Avenue. For children and for people who use the footpaths around this area instead of walking on a fast and dangerous road.
  • Icon 168818 Traffic speeds up and down Carlton Hill, often on the pavement to pass other cars, a major problem for pupils at Carlton Hill primary. There are regular incidents of near misses at drop-off and pick-up. Traffic calming measures during those times, wider paths and a crossing / crossing guard would make a huge improvement to the safety of our children.
  • Icon 168738 The one way system on pavements here seems to have stopped (all signage removed) which is making it impossible to keep your distance significantly here. The pavement is narrow enough for elderly people with walkers, or parents with buggies which cause problems when cyclists or another person with a walking aid / pushchair comes the other way! The one-way system should be made permanent to aid safer walking, and include much clearer signage
  • Icon 168736 Pavement ends on the A153 before joining the public foot path. Short by just a couple meters but the road is so busy this would make everyone safer
  • Icon 168735 Needs a cycle/pedestrian crossing as this road is so busy - trying to cross to the bridle track from the cycle path is so dangerous with the speed of the cars.
