New bike parking shelter with pump and tools available. Very hot in there when the sun's shining

Old exclusionary barriers on the tunnel where the former A14 separates the southern part of Fenstanton from the rest of the village

Broadway Cycles with Camcycle magazine in the window.

Took my new bike for a spin along the Busway to St Ives - with coffee & cake on my mind at the freshly opened Commute Cafe, 33 The Broadway. V tasty food + friendly staff. A new cycle cafe in Cambs πŸ‘πŸ˜ https://t.co/ha6mvQK902

@RantyHighwayman One of my least favourite cycle lanes in Huntingdon! https://t.co/PBmc2cHTgX Precise location near this Tesco's not exactly known, yet.

Fancy @CambsCC New Shire Hall 'Bicycle Hub', empty all day long. https://t.co/k71OtfgAvE Actually it is the iMET Training Centre hub as revealed in this subsequent tweet: https://twitter.com/susanvandeven/status/1440954389435490304

NCN51 St Ives

Since when have market stalls been allowed to be erected on cycle lanes?

Finally after 14 months, Brampton Hut NMU crossing is open. πŸ’• @camcycle @HuntsPostDebbie https://t.co/o8o9eDLXYM

Sorry what now? @ShowMeASignBryn @RoadsignReport1 @RantyHighwayman https://t.co/QGCOwATcLS

Fen Lane path between the busway and Fenstanton has been widened, resurfaced and upgraded from Public Footpath to Public Bridleway (November 2020)

Shared-use path out of Fenstanton

No Entry except buses and good vehicles on this short-cut - cyclists can use the shared-use path to the left but still, it would be make sense to officially allow them to use the road (like the cyclist in the distance).

Bridleway under the A1307 from Fenstanton - dropped kerb needed.

Bridleway under the A1307 to Fenstanton - with mounting block for horse-riders

The old road is only a dead-end for motor vehicles - cycles and pedestrians have an underpass beneath the A1307. I'm a bit surprised the priority hasn't been changed as virtually all the motor traffic takes the road to the right.

Rather random end of shared-use path on bridge over the new A14

Pretty minor ford in Hilton with reminder for cyclists to dismount.

The turf maze, Hilton

Not really a cycleable path from the A14 bridge to Hilton

Sudden end of shared-use path on the bridge over the new A14

The old road from St Ives to Hilton cut off by the new A14 - now signed as a footpath that turns right and right again - ok for dog-walkers.

Shared-use path on the bridge over the new A14, and the old road to the right, now signed as a footpath.

Sudden end of shared-use path on the bridge over the new A14 - no easy access for southbound cyclists.

No dropped kerb at the start of this shared-use footway and link to the new development - tokenism, in other words.

Bus stop and shared-use footway at a new housing development

Shared-use footway towards St Ives - cyclists can stay on the old road ahead where cars take the new road to the right.

Bus stop with cycle stands - and what might be a stretch of shared-use footway.

Better markings here on this shared-use path.

Narrow shared-use path, basically only marked in the other direction - but there is some street lighting at this end.

This is too narrow to be much use as a shared-use path.

This seems to be the only work that's been done to create a shared-use path here.

This seems to be the only work that's been done to create a shared-use path here.

This is marked as a shared-use path in the other direction, but it's too narrow to be much use anyway.

OpenCycleMap shows this path as shared-use but there's no evidence on the ground.

@A428Cat 9 months on and @HighwaysEAST have still failed to commission the NMU' lights at #BramptonHut Meanwhile lives are put at risk daily as vulnerable road users attempt to cross the A14 and still no date for fixing them. @camcycle @Ran ... [more]

Shared-use cycleway along the eastern side of the A1 from Little Paxton to Buckden. Rideable but watch out for the lack of dropped kerbs in a few places.

The cycleway between Alconbury and Brampton ends suddenly (Oct 2020) at the Brampton end before reaching a road. This photo shows a path (not marked as a cycleway) which connects to the housing estate to the east. Cycling is physically poss ... [more]

No Entry to the slip road from the A1307 (the former A14) and one of various car-oriented housing developments here.

The A1307, formerly the A14

There's a shared-use path alongside the A1123, but it changes sides several times without any kind of crossing, which makes it fairly useless.

I was surprised to see anyone actually cycling in the RSPB's Ouse Fen reserve

Could we design safer cycling routes in #Huntingdonshire? Poor effort here at #AlconburyWeald https://t.co/pzqr2irsQe

@hopsncheese George Street, #Huntingdon would benefit from 2 way cycling - part of @sustrans #NationalCycleNetwork route. @Huntingdon_Town views needed. @AmyBurbidge2 @Tomstukeley https://t.co/gExEvG3WKE

Poorly designed cycle parking at @Morrisons St Ives. Difficult to get to the back row of stands if the front row is occupied.

Not sure if this implies cyclists have priority over side road or not

Quiet rural road on NCN 12 heading towards Huntingdon

Farmer says you shall not pass!

Quiet rural fen road north of Somesham. Unfortunately is doesn't go anywhere, see next photo

It's pretty poor that on purpose-built new infrastructure, cyclists on NCN route 51 should have to take a sharp turn and use a zebra crossing.

Signs indicate that buses used to run through the centre of St Ives, but the bollards are fixed now (on NCN route 51)
