[Image taken 18.5.21] Stirling Road, York. One of three signs installed this year (with one more to come) alerting people to the retail outlets of Clifton Moor off Stirling Road and the cycle routes to/from and between them. The signs promo ... [more]

[Image taken 18.5.21] Clifton Moor, near retail outlets, Stirling Road, York. This direction sign to Wigginton has been knocked. Now out of position it's confusing rather than instructional or inspirational.

Temporary traffic lights on Mill Road bridge.

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. These measurements (width 104cm, radius 155cm, entry/exit width 82cm) are not enough for someone to get through comfortably or easily on a cycle. Even on a lightweight, unladen, unadorned de ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. The width of the tarmac is just 97cm. This is uncomfortably narrow for many potential users pass through, and the angle is too tight - there's no provision for turning circles. (LTN 1/20 Cyc ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. Looking from Manor Lane. The ‘holding’ area between the road and the entry to the chicane is too narrow. You would need to wait on the road if someone else were navigating this or, if wi ... [more]

Image taken 9.5.21] Manor Lane, Rawcliffe, York. Looking towards Manor Lane. The angles here are too tight, the space between the chicanes too limited and the 'runout'/'turning circle' space limits who can use this offroad, segregated ped-c ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Haxby Road junction with A1237, York. Entrance to/exit from Haxby Cycleway (cycle-ped route) towards Clifton Moor and Rawcliffe (and beyond) alongside the A1237 with occasional view of York Minster. There is some room t ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Haxby Road junction with A1237, York. Tight chicanes at the bottom of/start of Haxby Cycleway with an incline that leads over the railway (Scarborough-York). Sightlines are limited but compare this junction with, I beli ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Haxby Road junction with A1237 (ring road), York. Looking in the direction of Haxby. Segregated (different heights) ped and cycle paths. Room to pass people turning and exiting the signed route (Haxby Cycleway) to Clift ... [more]

[Image taken 9.5.21] Haxby Road junction with A1237, York. Looking in the direction of New Earswick. The route to the right (Haxby Cycleway) through the barriers leads alongside the noisy A1237 to Clifton Moor (retail and leisure parks, res ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. Like the racks on the other side of the entrance these racks are too close (see: #167732). Other images of the racks on this side see also: #169112 and links.

[Image taken 10.5.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. The cycle parking on this side of the shop has no protection from vehicles parked/being parked this side. Longer cycles or a rig with a trailer could block the pedestrian access. See also ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. Easy to find. Close to shop entrance. Good surveillance. See images these racks, this side: #169113, #169114. More images of the racks on this site see: #167727 and links.

[Image taken 10.5.21] Village Street, York. The mud shows that the barriers are not spaced to enable longer/wider cycles to get through on the width of tarmac provided. This suggests there will be people who want to use this route but are u ... [more]

[Image taken 10.5.21] Village Street, York. Barriers such as these are literally barriers for many people. It's not just about the width of what you are trying to get through or with but also the length. In the Executive summary of 'Cycling ... [more]

Such a joy to discover the cycle-friendly bridleway connecting Thriplow and Heathfield - making possible an active travel journey from Meldreth to the @IWMDuxford where @CambsCC will be meeting next week. @a10cycle https://t.co/wDPlTYsepE

The disused Magdalen Railway Bridge - a footpath, but it links bridleways. The problem is that it crosses the Great Ouse Relief Channel, but the bridge over the Great Ouse itself (on the former Watlington-Wisbech railway line) has been remo ... [more]

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. No details of the reason for the closure (see: #168828; how long it will be closed for, a contact for problems. See also: #169084 and links

The path on the right connects Jessie Street with Prospecthill Circus (at #113826), while the one on the left heads past some of the new housing and onto the Malls Mire nature reserve.

Building work continues on the redevelopment of the Prospecthill Circus area, although I wasn't clear what the purpose of this fencing was. The path could do with upgrading, that may be still to come.

Paths around the north side of the Malls Mire nature reserve are less formal than those around the centre.

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. Map at right angles – not easy to consult. Nowhere for cyclists to secure or lean cycles while they look at the map. (This issue see also: #168889.) See also: #169084 and links

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. This sign is clear: road ahead closed. But you have already made the turn into here by the time you see it. There is a map underneath (see #168887). Easy to overlook as it’s in faint colours. Not ... [more]

Having left Malls Mire nature reserve, the path meets another around the playing fields at Toryglen Road. Over to the right is the path from Prospecthill Circus that is currently being rebuilt.

A path in Malls Mire nature reservce, looking towards the council boundary. It is possible to get across into Rutherglen here, but there's a short section of steep path here.

Malls Mire nature reserve.

Paths within Malls Mire are appropriate for a nature reserve. The steps link up to the path between Prospecthill Circus and Toryglen Road in Rutherglen (that is currently being rebuilt).

The way into Malls Mire is via the forecourt of the nursery building.

[Image taken 17.5.21] Terry Avenue, York. The diversion sign for the floodworks that started today is for pedestrians. Where is the one for cyclists? Terry Ave its itself a 'destination' for people on cycles, foot, wheelchairs... in additio ... [more]

[Image taken 17.5.21] Skeldergate, York. Terry Avenue closed on Monday, 17 May 2021 for a year for Clementhorpe floodworks. Signs and writing intended to alert people to the diversion and direct them, are too small. No mention of Rowntree P ... [more]

The resurfaced section of the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath will tie into the work at Stockingfield Junction, where a bridge is being built across the canal.

Although the main towpath has been resurfaced, nothing has been done about the poor connection from the towpath to the path to Vaila Street. In addition to local access, this is important for making connections between the canal and Summers ... [more]

A section of Forth & Clyde Canal towpath has been resurfaced, between Cadder and Stockingfield.

[Image taken 16.5.21] Station Road junction with Station Avenue, York. A fallen sign further reduces the width of the pavement and increases the obstructions (there are scaffolding poles) under the City Walls. People are pushing their cycle ... [more]

[Image taken 16.5.21] Rowntree Park, York. There are two table tennis tables in this park. There is around 211cm between the table and the seating. This is comfortable and practical. See also: #167766 and links

[Update see: #168840] [Image taken 27.1.21] New sign for a shared use link at York, Clifton Moor. The sign (installed 18.1.21) tells people there is a reason to explore the link route. Therefore the new sign benefits the retail outlets on t ... [more]

[Image taken 27.1.21] A Council officer said it was "a lot of work" to get this link installed retrospectively between two retail parks in Clifton Moor, York. However, signage was limited and did not give information about where the link we ... [more]

[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 is no other realisti ... [more]

The Norwich Gates to Sandringham House; not everyone's cup of tea: #p101329

A well used valuable link between Scotland Road and High Street Chesterton.

[Image taken 23.4.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. There are many good practice elements about the design and position of these racks. But at 74cm they are too close to each other as are the racks on the other side of the entrance: #16911 ... [more]

[Image taken 23.4.21] Sofology, Hurricane Way, York. (Position in forecourt see also: #167340.) These Sheffields (racks) have a sloping and elongated shape. The person who owns the cycle had thought the design might work for her but the pro ... [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]

[Image taken 18.4.21] Clifton Moor Gate, York, towards Tesco petrol station. The corners on the other side of this wide toucan crossing are too tight and the one through the grass is too narrow. Images: #167349 and #167351 show the contrast ... [more]

[Update. See: #164095 and: #169084] [Photo taken mid-May 2019] York Cycle Campaign [yorkcyclecampaign.bike] members leafletted and spoke to people on Terry Avenue and at the Butcher Terrace end of the Millennium Bridge. The message was, Ter ... [more]
