Recently installed Cycle Lanes on Melton Road - post in on pavement cycle path (which links to the Toucan used by east-west traffic crossing Melton Road) is presumably going to be signing the start of one cycle route by obstructing another ... [more]

Recently installed Toucan crossing making the crossing of Loughborough Road much safer.

Unnecessary conflict-causing barriers (the second of two pairs) here - wide enough apart they totally fail to stop mopeds, close enough together they make it difficult for cyclists towing a child-trailer to pass. A bollard or two would suf ... [more]

Newly widened path to the right of the fork. To the left the handrails have recently been installed as part of the Arena redevelopment, needed for walkers but an obstruction for cyclists - especially as the path to the left will be Route 5 ... [more]

While the replacement of the previous chicane here with a simple bollard is very welcome, being located in the shadows with no street lighting doesn't make this bollard very visible - especially bad heading from Beedling and turning right a ... [more]

Previous narrow bridge has been replaced with a much wider one.

The previous awkward barriers on this path have been replaced with a simple bollard. :) Shame the one lamp post left on the path (due to lack of space) is so close to the bollard making a nasty pinch point right at a point where pedestrian ... [more]

Recently widened path has also seen the lamposts moved back out of the path itself, and not only that they have been set back enough to actually make that useful. The increased number of streetlights should also improve visibility in the w ... [more]

Route 5 will go left here - forward visibility is poor here due to substation fence on the left and overgrowing plants on both sides (causing oncoming cyclists to be in the middle of the road). Requires maintenance to be kept on top of - u ... [more]

Future Route 5's crossing of the busy Compton Acres . Road markings and surface in a poor condition, no signs on the road that a cycle route crosses here. Visibility of speed traffic is very poor due to curvature of the road (traffic trave ... [more]

Newly laid dropped kerb which has been laid flush with both sides for a change! To be part of Route 5.

Recently resurfaced and widened cycle path from Tram Stop to Lymn Park - to be part of Route 5.

Recently widened path between Compton Acres tram stop and Ascott Garden - Route 5 bears left here. Behind the sign the path is a split level path, and this is the only path in West Bridgford where the cycle track is the higher side - guara ... [more]

Some obvious brain fade went on at this part of the cycle route - the path doesn't line up with itself, tight 90 degree bends, pedestrian only crossing, tram tracks on the desire line.... If any thought had been put into this you could hav ... [more]

Cycle racks at Wilford Lane tram stop.

Good job chaps, you've built a tram stop bypass so passengers and passing cyclists don't get in one another's way. Wait what, that's not allowed - we need to install a conflict-causing barrier quick sharp! Grr, one of the few tram stops w ... [more]

A couple of years on from #65099 , path now fully surfaced and fencing removed. As per previous photo you want to go right here...

Barriers removed from the southern cycle corridor near the Beckett School - still showing the scars caused by the obstruction months later!

Signage on NCN15 where it leaves Holme Road and enters The Hook.

Go to the right at this fork in the path you will struggle to get through the gate on the left path. They bring you out fifty metres apart on the road up ahead not worth bothering with the hassle of the left route.

A pain of a gate. Struggled to get through with a single wheel trailer

Hard to pass work still underway

Half width cycle lane prevents cyclists from adopting a safe position through this narrow pinch point.

Cycle path goes through a bus stop

Cycle path divereted into a bus lay-by in the wrong direction on the A52

Pond between Nottingham and Gotham.

A lovely spot on the Nottingham road between Clifton and Gotham. Not a soul in sight!

Disturbing story about a cyclist knocked off and abused from the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/bike-blog/2013/aug/08/nottingham-police-cyclist-video I notice this incident happened on this A road where there are centra ... [more]
