98012Photo #98012In these warmer times, it's good to note that solid surfaces make all the diferences to cycle access. The river is still running high (although this is from a few weeks back). #Hemingfords #Houghton @HoughtonMillNT t.co/BA3rzR4szLCycleway:

92112Photo #92112Encountering some traffic along NCR 51, while passing through some very pretty grazing land. The pathway is fairly high quality, seems to be newer in the eastern section than the western part.

The entrances to the path on either side are still hand-operated & spring-loaded gates, which are hard for some people to use, instead of cattle grids.

92111Photo #92111The Thicket is a lovely path through some forested area of St Ives. Very popular with people walking and cycling, sometimes to the point of overflowing on nice days (we managed to find a quieter section). The pathway was resurfaced & widened sometime in the last few years and the surface quality is high. Maintenance seems to be fairly decent, which is important due to the growth of underbrush you can see creeping up in the photo.Cycleway:

92110Photo #92110Lovely pathway between the Houghton Mill (National Trust site) and NCR 51. Looks like it has been recently resurfaced and widened. Land is under private ownership and path is permissive. Being in a flood plain it is occasionally impassable but otherwise a very popular place for walking and cycling.Cycleway:

84170Photo #84170No entry sign erected in 2015 now prevents cyclists from cycling legally along Great Northern Street towards Huntingdon town centre unless you dismount. Shortsighted "highway improvement" designed to stop rat running of cars but with unintended consequences for cyclists. Grrrrr!General sign/notice:

61247Photo #61247Q: What can you expect at a road called 'Drivers Avenue'!

A: Crap cycling facilities!

Curiously there's a give way here rather than a Cyclists Dismount sign - which is at a nearby junction, so this scheme is inconsistently designed too.

61245Photo #61245The footway on this side of American Lane is shared use but not on the other side (where a cyclist is riding).

Shared use cycleway users are expected to dismount to cross these side roads. The sign opposite is actually the wrong way round - I think!

61244Photo #61244There's an obvious place to have a dropped kerb where the shared use cycleway opposite joins American Lane. But there's not one because the shared use continues along the narrow footway. This is just crap and ill thought through rubbish!Cycleway:
