58322Photo #58322Great cycle infrastructure is often obstructed by parked traffic. This off-road cycle track on Asline Road is fantastic, but is used as a parking space at school drop offs, by taxis, work vans and visitors coaches on match days at Sheffield United's ground on Bramall Lane. The police actually direct coaches to park there!Other:

58171Photo #58171National Cycle Route from Sheffield to Rotherham on Europa Link business park. Dedicated cycleway rutted & split by root damage for about a mile along the route. Odd repairs done but roots are again coming through these repairs. Very difficult to ride on thin tyres. Many cyclists use road instead of cycle lane due to poor surface. However, road narrow and traffic often fast moving. Seconds after I took this picture a car sped past at 70mph. Cars & lorries often pass too close & fast with the odd driver suggesting strongly I use the cycle lane.Other:

This is a special edition Johnny Loco x Dockers bicycle, seen in a shop window on Division St, Sheffield. I assume they sell Dockers clothes there. Johnny Loco bikes are just fab - look at this beauty!

38019Photo #38019This flank of 6 steps lies right on a cycle route, leading to an underpass under a busy roundabout - there's also an S-shaped ramp nearby to bypass the steps. Both are signposted as 'cyclists dismount'.

However, I've watched several cyclists cycle down the groove in the steep ramp in the middle of these steps. Requires quite a bit of bravery, and I've not attempted it yet!

Longer-term, it'd be great if these steps and ramps could be reconfigured to make them more accommodating of cyclists and pedestrians alike.

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 are floating in air.

34375Photo #34375Junction of Hanover Way cycle path (Ring Route) with Peak Park Anniversary route. The angles at this junction are way too sharp: cycles don't turn on a pin. As a result cyclists tend to continue on the footway to Broomspring Lane. Also pedestrians tend to use the segregated cycle crossing as well as the ped crossing. A shared use arrangement would be better.Other:
