Route sign on EuroVelo 4, along the D-Day coast in Normandy

The coastal path along the D-Day coast - though cyclists soon have to turn inland ro joint the marked route, EuroVelo 4.

Permanent closure from 13 October 2021.

Car parking on the "Keep Clear" markings and across what the traffic order said was legal to cycle through (although it has never been properly signed) on the traffic filter.

A cycle hangar has been provided next to the Wilton Street Fire Path, but the Fire Path itself has still not been adapted to allow cycling through.

No sign to turn right.

[Image taken 21.9.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location. The cycle with the basket requires more space than this design of rack offers. The second cycle is, therefore, at an angle. Other images here today: #174351 a ... [more]

[Image taken 21.9.21] Rowntree Park, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] The cycle with the rack and child seat leaves no space for a second machine on the other side of the rack. However, as is the case when space is factored in ... [more]

  • Icon 174379 From Berrygrove Lane to Hempstead Rd along the A41, parts are already shared use. It would be an easy option to maintain this pavement at it's existing full width and create a useful link between two of the proposed new cycleways that link with watford town centre.
  • Icon 174367 There is no safe area for children to cycle to school from Great Ashby without having to risk their lives crossing this road. A cycle path or safe crossing area really is essential here.

  • Icon 174365 This road is too fast and dangerous for children to cycle to school
  • Icon 174364 Need improved football and cycles at here
  • Icon 174347 Path behind speedway often very narrow due to overgrown plants/weeds. Too narrow for passing even when cut back.
  • Icon 174346 Improvements to surfacing here going up gravelly hill and down tarmac hill towards bridge over railway. Really nasty potholes and bumps.
  • Icon 174345 Clearer signage of pedestrian lane and cycle lane. Pedestrians get upset when I tell them they are in the cycle lane!!
  • Icon 174344 Dangerous corner from cycle path turning left by rhino as you can’t see what’s coming in other direction. Overgrown plants make this worse.
