Cyclists Ahead - footpath leading to the shared-use path from Swaffham Prior to Burwell

The only No Cycling sign I saw in this area

Cyclists Dismount sign at the A10 Ely bypass

No Cycling

No Cycling

End of shared-use footway, Ely

Pointless shared-use sign, followed by Cyclists Dismount, which should be a Rejoin the Carriageway sign.

No Cycling - I think this is wide enough.

No Cycling sign and barriers

No Cycling

No Cycling

End of Cycle Route sign, because continuing it across the side-road is too much trouble.

Cyclists Dismount for the crossing to the right, End of Cycle Route ahead - which should read Cyclists Rejoin the Carriageway

Another annoying Cyclists Dismount sign - Rejoin the Carriageway would make sense.

I assume the Cyclists Dismount sign only applies to the crossing to the right, otherwise it contradicts the shared-use sign on the left.

Shocking - No Entry sign with no indication that this is a major cycle route to the Isle of Ely School and new housing.

End of shared-use path by a stub of road to the water works

Cyclists Dismount. Why? Ridiculous

Advance warning of road closure for the Reach Fair. The website says the closure does not apply to pedestrians and cyclists. I wonder if this is an official road closure as we saw a lot of cars using Little Fen ... [more]

No Motor Vehicles in Ely's Market Place

Poster board explaining the historical significance of this area as a port at the head of navigation.

Cyclists Slow Down sign on Ely Riverside

Want better cycle routes to the station ?

This station map shows a cycle route to the cathedral.

Patronizing sign whose aim seems to be avoidance of liability if a cyclist jolts their bike because there is a bit of a ramp ahead. Otherwise this is an excellent bridge.

Why specifically no mountain bikes in Chippenham Fen National Nature Reserve?

A modified sign in the Jubilee Gardens, Ely. Someone has decided to alter all the 'No Cycling' signs by adding a diagonal bar. This is not good practice. If there is a genuine need to reinforce the message, adding the text 'No Cycling' ... [more]

Useless ambiguous signage that doesn't tell anyone where they're going or how far it is. A total waste of time - unless you know that these cycle rides or byways are all about.

Sign: "Footpath only; bicycles need written permission" A few of these signs have appeared in the area. I (Richard Taylor) would like to see more recreational cycle paths around Cambridge and think it is a shame cycles are banned fro ... [more]

All lighting masts and sign poles should be 0.5m back from the path edge. The sign is also too low. This path is already too narrow. 1.5m minus 0.5m kerb clearance and 0.5m post clearance leaves only 0.5m effective width - less than hand ... [more]

Bridleway signs

Road closure notice for 2009 Reach Fair - exemption for cyclists should be spelled out

Wicken Fen Vision sign and map

Tubney Fen - National Trust area.

What does this sign mean? A bicycle in a red circle means "no cycling", and a bar across any sign negates its meaning. So now does it mean "cycling compulsory"?

Cyclists asked to dismount to cross a side road on NCN 51.


Seems a bit harsh on the hosteliers. sign
