Another loss of priority to a road used by very few vehicles. The cycle lane should continue straight across here, and cars be forced to give way.

The paint to the left shows where the old "cycle path" began, leaving the carriageway. The footpath on the right is in terrible condition and does not improve the further north one walks.

This crossing is unsignalled and traffic speeds are high. Great care needs to be taken crossing road.

This gate needs to be replaced, preferably removed, so people can walk and cycle without obstruction.

Priority given over to a side road that serves only one property. This is utterly pointless in a location that sees very low level of traffic. Priority should be given to walking and cycling here.

Priority taken away from the cycle path and given to a petrol station that is closed, and a hotel that sees low traffic levels. Both these are entrances to private property. Priority should remain with the cycle path.

Dashed lines across the carriageway might help here, but give way markings are needed before the tactile paving so cyclists aren't tempted to wander into the carriageway. The surface here is loose, the turns are tight, this could lead to p ... [more]

Here priority is taken away from the cycle track and given over to a road that sees little to no traffic. This is pointless and dangerous - motorists should be expected to wait for cyclists before crossing the cycleway. The signage is con ... [more]

Two junctions with light traffic that force cyclists to cede priority. Why is this the case? There is enough space to make motorists wait for pedestrians and cyclists to cross. The result is unnecessary conflict. It's worth noting that ... [more]

Recent roadworks here have exposed just how much of the footway is covered in overgrowth. It gets worse the further south you go, so you're walking/cycling alongside HGVs doing 50mph only inches from you. It's very scary. Cheshire East C ... [more]

The Middlewood Way from Marple to Macclesfield leisure route, ends rather abruptly at this supermarket exit.

The Middlewood Way from Macclesfield to Marple leisure route.

This farmer seems to think the cycle lane is his personal farm vehicle parking space.

An utterly pointless set of cycle barriers on an entirely segregated cycle lane. Nobody would dream of putting car-sized barriers on a junction on a road, so why put these on a cycle lane? The thinking escapes me, whoever thinks these are ... [more]

Yet more anti-social parking on the new cycling infrastructure.

Cycleway along old route of the A556 takes a long detour and yields priority to cross the side road.

Cycleway alongside former route of A556 yields priority at a side road

Staggered crossing via an incredibly thin central island. I think the Chreshire Cycleway (RCN 70) is supposed to cross here now that the traffic lights at Bucklow Hill have gone - though there are no route signs.

cycleway yields priority at side road crossing.

Cycleway loses priority at a side road crossing. There really is no excuse at this location as the cycleway used to be part of the A556 carriageway - so the give way markings had to be deliberately moved.

Cycleway alongside former route of the A556 detours up side road then makes a sharp right-angle turn to cross the road without priority.

Brand new cycleway alongside the old route of the A556 surfaced with loose chippings.

UPDATE 14 Oct 2017 #a556 #b5569 See #94537 and #94538 It's disappointing that Highways England do not know how to build a country road that prioritises vulnerable road users (on a road that is parallel to a new road that definitively prio ... [more]

Spot the cycleway sign!

Route sign for the Cheshire Cycleway (RR70). Sign is missing for eastbound cyclists turning right off West Lane onto Peacock Lane.

Chishire Cycleway sign - easy to miss due to being hidden in a hedge.

Cheshire Cycleway sign. Very small and difficult to spot at such a large junction. No destinations shown.

While a right turn option is signed, the traffic islands make turning right awkward, as if the designers had thought only a left turn would be allowed.

The last half mile of the cycle route to the town centre is to be walked!

Is it me or does this cycle lane get narrower before giving up?

There is a cycle lane along the main Nantwich Road, but vehicles turn left at the Lights at Edleston Road, risking a collision cutting across the path.

A cycle path that crosses a busy junction with no clear guidance. There is a very faint stop sign but most cyclists filter out onto the road to make it clear they are going straight on

Plenty of space for cycles on the Class 350 trains, but there's no sign of where it is.

Plenty of convertible space for cycles on the Class 350 trains, but there's no sign of where it is - just this wheelchair sticker.

Plenty of space for cycles on the Class 350 trains, but there's no external sign of where it is.

Never mind 'No Unauthorised Golf', how about letting bikes though into South Park, Macclesfield ?

Pretty poor access for cycle route into South Park, Macclesfield
