As usual they were happy to wave cyclists (and pedestrians) through the road 'closure'.

Long Buckby station - no lift or even a wheeling channel.

Possible route of extension to TPT from Arkwright...

Tarmac roadway from former Arkwright Colliery, could form a useful cycle path /extension to TPT

The old railway line from Hady beyond Dingle Lane bridge

Looking down Dingle Lane towards the old railway bridge which could form a useful cycle path from Calow to Spital/Chesterfield

Taken from Dingle Lane, the course of the old railway line is just the other side of the first line of trees

Access from Hady Lane towards Dingle Lane

Narrow access onto Hady Lane

Access onto Hady Lane

Looking towards Hady Lane, flat land, ideal for a cycle path between Spital and Hady

Ideal flat access between Spital and Hady Lane, just needs a bit of clearance

Plenty of space between the trees to create a flat and wide cycle path between Spital and Hady

Path from Alexandra Road East leading towards Hady, a much flatter route than the old railway line

Path to Alexandra Road East from Hady

Path through the trees to Spital from Hady, narrow in places but flat land and there's scope for a wider quite direct path to be created without losing many well established trees.

Path from Hady to Spital, needs a little clearance in places but otherwise a generally flat route, many of the trees can be avoided if a slightly different and maybe more direct route is chosen

Current path from Hady to Spital through trees

Path from Hady Lane to Spital through trees, quite flat and direct, albeit restricted in places for cycling currently.

Quite steep hill up to Hady Lane on old railway line

Steep incline onto Alexandra Road East, not really suitable for cycling

UPDATE Jan 2019 - Looks like these bins have been elocated !! Manchester Metropolitan University Bonsall Street Hulme Manchester a cycle junction is impeded and made unsafe by 2 large bins and 2 small bins belonging to MMU @ManMetUni @Green ... [more]

Path over brook, not great for cyclists or people that can't jump currently. Could do with a little bridge over it, then it create ideal access from Shuttlewood to Seymour/Woodthorpe/Staveley without having to use the busy roads.

Plenty of cycle stands here Clay Farm Community Centre

An utterly stupid place to put a bollard. I practically ran into this. If one is really needed, it could go further south towards the parking.

steep footpath leading up to Spital from old railway line

Steps leading up to Alexandra Road East, not suitable for cycling

Access onto Alexandra Road East up from old railway line

Access between Alexandra Road East and Hartington Road

Access towards Hartington Road

Access onto Spital Lane from railway line, narrow but potential cycle access path.

Access onto Spital Lane from old railway line, through recreation ground.

To the left, access down onto Spital Lane. The path on the right leads up to Alexandra Road East but is very steep and has steps.

  • Icon 104541 It’s a street with a lot of condensed housing, where many people don’t have cars. There are no bike hangars within 5 minutes walk. All the hangars in our area are full with waiting lists. It’s also not a particularly busy place to park for cars
  • Icon 104530 Situated at the junction of the A6 and Crawley Green Road is the entrance to a cycle path following the railway towards Luton Airport Parkway Station. I cycle to Parkway station from Crawley Green Road and find the turn onto the cycle path tricky. I either have to stop in the road to lift my bike up the kerb, or transition onto the pavement a little earlier where there is a dropped kerb for the pedestrian crossing. I do not like having to use the pavement here, especially with pedestrians and it being narrow, not to mention illegal. But nor do I like stopping on a dual carriageway with fast traffic around me. For people coming from the A6 their only option is to try and get up the kerb. I have marked in white on the image, the points at which I can either mount the pavement at the crossing or stop to get up the kerb. I've also sketched a possible design in red, for a new dropped kerb, short on-pavement cycle path, and a railing to ensure some division between cycles and pedestrians to avoid collisions when coming off the road. I feel that this design would allow people to exit the road at speed, and give a short distance to safely slow down before turning, without being in the road. Making this junction safer to navigate. The alternative would be a dropped kerb immediately in front of the cycle path, but this is likely to cause cyclists to slow down suddenly and turn quickly, potentially confusing and hazardous for drivers and pedestrians alike.

  • Icon 104449 I cycle everyday from Greenwich to Waterloo. There is excellent bike storage in other parts around Greenwich, but nothing in maze hill area.
  • Icon 104447 I have started a new job in Mayfair but there is not any place in the building where I can leave my bike. Is there any safe place where I could leave it in that area?
