Waiting for the toucan crossing across Sheaf Street to change. It did take a while. Across the road is the city's railway station.

Was the budget for the Cobweb Bridge so tight there was no money left for a proper sign at the turn, hence the use of Sustrans stickers?

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on the same pole as a sign saying cycling is allowed. Are cyclists only meant to dismount to go around the corner then remount?

The Cobweb Bridge, suspended under the former Sheffield Victoria station viaduct.

No proper dropped kerb at the end of the Cobweb Bridge at Sussex Street.

The lack of a proper dropped kerb at the end of the Cobweb Bridge at #112458 encourages cyclists to use the footway in Sussex Street.

Cycling alongside the River Don in Sheffield.

'This way to NCN6' on Furnival Road, which appears to be a shorter way than taking actual NCN6.

'Cyclists Dismount to use Crossing'

The roadworks signage is at least more readable than the tiny permanent sign.

Old cycle facilities and roadworks to create something new.

Poor quality cycle parking on the edge of Sheffield city centre, at Ponds Forge.

A traffic boom across NCN6, with a little gap at the side. Would rising bollards (or even a cheaper padlocked drop bollard) not be more appropriate, leaving more space for those on foot and bike?

A poor transition between two bits of shared footway, and attracting mud. Why is this not on a straight through alignment for cyclists?

A cycleway on the footway at the huge Park Square roundabout, partly obstructed by temporary signs for roadworks.

Strange Cycle Lane markings on NCN 6 in Sheffield.

National Cycle Network route 6: Cobweb Bridge Location: Sheffield (England, United Kingdom) Rather ingeniously, the route both crosses the River Don and goes under a railway line via this elevated way which gives the feeling that you ... [more]

NCN6 no special road markings here, other than faded ones.

The road narrowing here is being used as a car park and the cycle lane through that is obviously not working. Lessons to learn here!

Road narrowing and speed cushions

Speed cushions and road narrowing, the narrow cycle lane has disappeared here.

Speed cushions on the NCN6

Good cycle by-pass and traffic calming, but the cycle lane looks a bit narrow.

NCN6 has just entered a residential area.

Riders on the NCN 6 enter the "Child Safety Zone", to that muse mean they're leaving the "Child Danger Zone" ??? ;-)

Toucan crossing on the NCN 6

Erk! These boulders are probably necessary to stop joyriding vehicles but in the dark they're a real threat to the unsuspecting rider.

Cycleway NCN 6 very wide here - there even seems to be a passing place! I think this may also be the NCN67 too, but not sure.




Cycling and walking signs marked on the NCN67 Trans Pennine Trail

This is two-way for cycling and is expected to become part of NCN 6.
