The cycleway here is narrow and the surface poor, but this isn't such a bad thing - go too fast here and you risk a head-on collision with another cyclist. I think the overgrowth needs cutting back though.

An interesting way to mark a cycle lane but the end result is that it's almost invisible to everyone, and completely invisible to those pedestrians with poor eyesight.

Unfortunately inward-opening doors pose a threat to cyclists in this tunnel.

Shared use footway/cycleway crossover section.

Segregated shared-use cycleway crosses from one side of the pavement to the other. The markings on the ground are contradicted by the sign.

A narrow path between Smedley Lane and Boyle Street, signed as a line-segregated foot/cycle path, and without a dropped kerb at the end.

Pointless piece of cycle track to bypass minor road junction.

Unswept path at Hendham Vale

UPDATE June 2013 the Fallowfield Loop has at last been liberated at the eastern end as the route through the Bellway estate at Fairfield has been opened up properly! Many thanks to all those who contacted Bellway, Tameside MBC and Counci ... [more]

Contraflow cycle lane but a bit close to the parked cars. Very confusing give way at the end of the cycle lane Would have been better to extend the cycle lane without the kink in it and without the give way. Suggest extend facility beyond t ... [more]
