A new combined pedestrian and cycling zebra crossing is provided here.

Here the cycle lane splits. Right for cyclists, left for equestrians. The cyclists' option has barriers on the far side of the junction. The equestrians' option has no barriers. So everyone just takes the left fork, because it's easier.

Design vs user experience. Many cyclists are using the obvious, slightly bumpy route on the left. But the designer wants them to take the less obvious, more difficult route to the right. Bit of an oversight here - give people two options ... [more]

Reservation indicators above the bike spaces on the new Intercity Express Trains ('available' because I'd reached my destination) - people wanting to stow their luggage aren't going to notice these.

Parking for six cycles outside the takeaway in Town Square is concealed behind this low wall. I assume that hiding it made sense to someone.

Bike space, so-called, on the new Intercity Express Trains - and if someone has put luggage there there's no room at all for bikes, even with reservations.

Sign for NCN route 48, Stow-on-the-Wold

Dropped kerb in the corner spaces of this car park enables a short-cut to the market square instead of going all the way west to the Railway Road junction - as long as no cars are parked here!

Market Square, Stow-on-the-Wold - this would be far nicer without the motor vehicles

Rouse's Lane passes through an industrial estate, with the end unit displaying a very questionable "no walking" sign to the bridleway.

No Through Road to Maugresbury from the Fosse Way - open for pedestrians and cyclists, of course.

Rouse's Lane connects the Howdale with Stonecross Road. The tarmac road from the cemetery joins Rouse's Lane at this point - the dead get smoother roads than the living!

No Through Road to Fosse Way - only true for motor vehicles, but of course that's all highway engineers are concerned with.

Rouse's Lane connects the Howdale with Stonecross Road. The dirt track ends here as a concrete road joins from the corner to the left.

Rouse's Lane forks off of Stonecross Road towards the Howdale. It is dirt track at first, with a concrete pad protecting it from damage from tractors turning into the field.

Bridleway to Oddington

The first part of Stonecross Road east of the A10 is tarmac and used to access the garden centre on the right

Poor bridleway across the fields

Stonecross Road between Downham Market and Bexwell diverts through the car park of these industrial units to cross the A10.

Bridleway to Oddington

This could be a useful link between Downham Market and Bexwell if it had a better surface. Concrete gives way to packed gravel by the farm buildings.

Double-deck cycle parking at Hanborough station

Lift at Oxford station - adequate for two normal bikes

Bike hanging space in a Cross-Country Voyager train - awkward for a lot of people (and bikes).

Bike pump and tools on the platform at Leamington Spa station

Double-deck cycle racks on both platforms at Leamington Spa, within the gated area.

It's possible to cross the A425 here to briefly continue on a cut-off part of the old Staverton Road

Attempt at priority over sideroads

the official surfaced footpath, with an informal track to the south.. interestingly regularly illuminated making it an attractive proposition to upgrade to shared use

Disappointingly marked as no-cycling, yet this path could offer an excellent upgraded cycling link from Derby Road to the station, and from Spital and Hady into the Town Centre

Informal path offering a clue towards the potential space for a new off road shared cycle path running alongside the River Rother, linking Spital with the Railway station without the need to share a road

Shared use trail parallel to the River Rother

A fairly pleasant shared use trail, just in need of a tickle to keep from becoming overgrown and slippy from leaf litter

Access from the Clough that could so easily be upgraded to encourage cycling

  • Icon 104541 It’s a street with a lot of condensed housing, where many people don’t have cars. There are no bike hangars within 5 minutes walk. All the hangars in our area are full with waiting lists. It’s also not a particularly busy place to park for cars
  • Icon 104530 Situated at the junction of the A6 and Crawley Green Road is the entrance to a cycle path following the railway towards Luton Airport Parkway Station. I cycle to Parkway station from Crawley Green Road and find the turn onto the cycle path tricky. I either have to stop in the road to lift my bike up the kerb, or transition onto the pavement a little earlier where there is a dropped kerb for the pedestrian crossing. I do not like having to use the pavement here, especially with pedestrians and it being narrow, not to mention illegal. But nor do I like stopping on a dual carriageway with fast traffic around me. For people coming from the A6 their only option is to try and get up the kerb. I have marked in white on the image, the points at which I can either mount the pavement at the crossing or stop to get up the kerb. I've also sketched a possible design in red, for a new dropped kerb, short on-pavement cycle path, and a railing to ensure some division between cycles and pedestrians to avoid collisions when coming off the road. I feel that this design would allow people to exit the road at speed, and give a short distance to safely slow down before turning, without being in the road. Making this junction safer to navigate. The alternative would be a dropped kerb immediately in front of the cycle path, but this is likely to cause cyclists to slow down suddenly and turn quickly, potentially confusing and hazardous for drivers and pedestrians alike.
