A jug-handle cycle lane to approach the tram tracks crossing in Aytoun Street at a better angle.

'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.

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]

Manchester Rochdale Canal bridge over canal at lock gate position

Hulme Manchester a wide path is compromised by the lack of a dropped kerb here.

Water street near Victoria and Albert Hotel funky drawbridge is quite fun though, when you cycle over it, it tips! But it no longer leads anywhere. Hopefully this bridge will lead to ... [more]

Outside the main entrance to John Rylands library.

Outside a cafe but notice wheelbenders too.

Tram share

Cycle lane give way to trams.

On a mobike in Manchester. The bikes are ok for pooling around town. No gears and a little under-geared for my liking. They are robust but the women I was with said they were heavy. I couldn't raise the seat as high as I'd like. I ove ... [more]

Risk for cyclists re entering main road

Low visibility of cyclists behind parked cars. Danger from left turning vehicles.

Missing give way lines

These bollards were supposed to be spaced 1.7m apart (for 1.5m clearance) but they've not been installed to this specification. The new wide waiting area was worth campaigning for - it's a vast improvement over the original 'S-bend' proposa ... [more]

Closed road alongside the railway viaduct at the University of Manchester - what a shame it's closed to cycling

There's a lot of cycle parking under the railway arches - how strange that this isn't a cycle route

Route through the Manchester University campus

Pedestrianisation and cycle parking at the University of Manchester - but a through cycle route would be helpful

Just five cycle parking stands at Manchester Victoria station, on platform 3, inside the ticket barrier area. Maybe there are more stands elsewhere, but the number of locks on the railings suggests that there should be more provided in the ... [more]

Looking along Long Millgate from the cycle track crossing the tramway. The right turn ban at the mini-roundabout should exempt cycles since the road that way is buses, taxis and cycles only, unless the ban exists due to the unusually close ... [more]

Cycleway crosses 4-track tramway with just a forest of signs and a 'Give Way' triangle. No flashing amber tram crossing signals like elsewhere in the city centre, despite the complex and potentially confusing arrangement. The central refuge ... [more]

'No Through Road except cycles' on Long Millgate leading to cycle track crossing the tramway.

No Entry except trams and cycles, straight ahead into Exchange Square. The painted cycle lane appears to encourage cyclists to risk left hooks rather than cycling closer to the tramlines. The road-width decreases suddenly just behind the ... [more]

No Left Turn except cycles, near Exchange Square (see also #72729).

A mix of pedestrian and cycle route signs, obscuring each other, while the motoring sign stands tall, clear and unobstructed.

Cycle parking on Dantzic Street.

The Dantzic Street cycleway studs lead users to the carriageway, but for how long is it two-way? The base of the bollard that has been removed could be a trip hazard for pedestrians.

The Dantzic Street cycleway studs to the south of Miller Street align with the toucan crossing, unlike across the other side (see #72825).

Cycleway across paved pedestrian area marked only by studs.

Staggered toucan crossing across Cheetham Hill Road at Trinity Way junction, but nothing obvious on either side that permits cycling on the footway.

Bollards closing off old road at Hendham Vale, retaining cycle and walking access through to Kingsbridge Road.

Barrier with gaps at each side on Hendham Vale

A gate at the entrance to Queen's Park, with gaps at either side for cycling and walking. However, the red sign says "No Unauthorised Vehicles" without saying if cycles are allowed. The rising bollards behind the gate appear to be a bit ... [more]

A city-bound cycle lane on Rochdale Road. Although not continuous, it has its uses for passing queuing traffic.

A limited amount of cycle parking outside the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.

Some cycle parking stands outside of Oxford Road station.

#space4parking on the footway by MMU's new Birley Fields development. Note the man in the white van carrying a fire extinguisher was genuinely loading but had to stop in the carriageway as all the loading bays were parked in. Also note the ... [more]
