#carsoncycleroutes these people have a nice driveway. Would have been nice to use it instead of the cyclelane :) https://t.co/bFwz9ygb7g

Manchester Chorlton. New Coop store has cycle parking for 3 bikes in correct place but are too close to the wall (there should be space for 4 at two hoops). Near front entrance and overlooked.

Manchester Northenden . Coop store has cycle parking for 10 bikes in correct place . Near front entrance and overlooked . Not sure why the bollards are needed.

Manchester Salford bridge over River Irwell Trinity Way. A sensible way to slow down cycles. Bollards set at at least 2m apart with SLOW sign on approach both sides. Compare this with most other attempts some of which exclude all but the mo ... [more]

This dark, unlit, narrow and filthy passageway with bollards at each end is on the Fallowfield Loop diversion. Would you use this at night?

Welcome to the Fallowfield Diversion route. Would you use this unlit and muddy underpass at night?

The wear on the left shows that many people choose to ignore this annoying chicane, which also serves as a point at which to mug users.

The barriers have been replaced with something less stupid, but it's unbelievable in this day and age that Sustrans, a walking and cycling charity, feel this is at all appropriate. WE DO NOT WANT BARRIERS TO ACTIVE TRAVEL.

This side road crossing used to be quite good, but it's since been repainted incorrectly.. https://t.co/aHZYYVTJck

Manchester Piccadilly

Manchester Piccadilly on a Saturday morning.

This is part of the diversion from the Fallowfield Loop while the bridge is being replaced, but the lack of dropped kerbs makes it inaccessible by bicycle or wheelchair.

More pointless barriers.

Extremely low headroom on this former canal tunnel makes cycling here a risky prospect.

The ludicrous barrier to the ramp onto the Fallowfield Loop. This discriminatory obstacle should be removed, immediately.

Hasty Lane: A solitary bollard (thank God it isn't a chicane) protects this overgrown and slippery ramp down to the tunnel beneath the motorway.

Hasty Lane: Once in the tunnel, however, the surface is much improved. This could be a valuable route if it were better taken care of.

A lack of maintenance has left this ramp in a disgusting and possibly dangerous condition. Reported.

Towpath diversion signs on the Ashton Canal.

'No Cycling', 'Slow' and 'Beware of Pedestrians' at a cluttered corner on the Ashton Canal. Not built for cycling, so important that the road network is adapted instead.

Arrows and sharrows on Store Street.

Opened by the Secretary of State for the Environment, but not a public right of way over the bridge.

'No Cycling', 'Slow' and 'Beware of Pedestrians' at a blind corner on the Ashton Canal path. Not really built for cycling.

Path and tramway crossing at the end of Baird Street, with building work going on to the left.

A separated left turn lane at Store Street.

A cycle track leading to Piccadilly station, but not for left turns into Ducie Street.

Special walk-and-text lanes have been provided in Spinningingfields, Manchester - for one day only, it's actually a marketing stunt.

The cycleway here is narrow and the surface poor, but this isn't such a bad thing - go too fast here and you risk a head-on collision with another cyclist. I think the overgrowth needs cutting back though.

New cycle control for the crossing. Buttons are better than induction loops, which can sometimes fail to register the presence of a bicycle.

Timperley Brooks Drive . The horse stile remains unused. Wouldn't it be better to make the bollard spacing wide enough for the biggest horse but narrow enough to prevent motor car access . Horse riders are using the space between the bolla ... [more]

An interesting way to mark a cycle lane but the end result is that it's almost invisible to everyone, and completely invisible to those pedestrians with poor eyesight.

If the steps and this path were replaced by a ramp, this public right of way might form a useful link between Collyhurst and Strangeways. There are 76 steps up to the bridge, and more steps on the opposite bank. It is not cycleable, alt ... [more]

A good way to make a point about how much space parked cars take from the highway.

This cycle crossing is also perfectly placed for pedestrians, which invites conflict. It might be better to widen it significantly and remove all road markings - let people decide what they want to do.

Several potentially serious issues here. The first is the requirement to give way to trams approaching over your shoulder, with little warning that this is about to happen. The second is the angle of the rails as they cross the road - thi ... [more]

Central Manchester . A short 50 yard section of Southmill Street has been made 1 way . Surely this is wide enough to allow 2 way cycling and a safer quiter route to Albert Sq.

Another triumph for the all-powerful cycle lobby. Look at how much space they have managed to get away from the poor subjugated motorist. https://t.co/trskT70z6r
