Photo listing (good practice)

The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

This listing only shows photos within Sheffield.
Go to the national CycleStreets photo listings for photos beyond.

Thank you to everyone who's made this happen. They're looking beautiful. We love it. I hope we can do more around Sheffield to make streets for walking and cycling @olivercoppard @min_esh @RuthMilsom https://t.co/MGbozM8kTq

Ball Street Bridge modal filters as part of an experimental closure.

Lovely bit of infrastructure in Sheffield.

A really nice cycle track in Sheffield.

One-way road closure and cycle contraflow, Sheffield

Pop-up modal filter outside the wonderful Fat Cat pub, Sheffield - now to put some seating there.

There's no doubt that this is a cycle route.

Bike pump by NCN route 6, Castlegate, Sheffield

A sizeable number of cycle parking stands within Sheffield railway station. Ed: How many Andy? :-)

Walkway from Sheffield station

Proper station square - not dominated by taxis like Cambridge's is

Great bike parking at Sheffield Hallam University - covered stands, with swipe card access for added security.

Bike specific cycle track with traffic lights enable bikes to cross the inner ring road, for quick and easy access into the city centre.

Nice cut through for cyclists between Bramall Lane and Alderson Road. Both are busy, and this short cut avoids a detour onto traffic-ridden roads. A nice touch which makes the Sheaf Valley route good.

Cycle parking, Sheffield Hallam University

Contra-flow off road cycle track

Off-road separated contra-flow cycle track on inner ring road.

Good cycle signage for Sheaf Valley bike route

Glover Road, permeable barrier, stops cars using for through traffic, but enables bike users.

Asline Road contra-flow off-road cycle track

Sheaf Valley route, off road cycle track.

Cycleway along Hanover Way. Good: Plenty of space. Pedestrian side is away from the road so more pleasant for walkers - however it is possible for cyclists to veer round peds in the cycleway if they need to.

A rider emerges from the fine illuminated mist outside the Crucible theatre in the centre of Sheffield, which some websites claim is England's fourth largest city.

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

Cycling and walking signs marked on the NCN67 Trans Pennine Trail

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.

Good wide cycleway continues here

NCN67 cycleway continues here along the flat.

Sustrans gate on the NCN67. This one has been opened so that it can easily be bypassed.

Decorated wall side and underpass.

Cycleway goes down and to the left alongside a decorated wall.

Good fast downhill section here

A cycleway joining onto the NCN 67

Contemplating the final 5 miles into Sheffield (they were great and went quite quickly!)

Another cycle access gate, the mobility scooter got through this gap too - after she folded in her wing mirror.

Sheffield City Centre only 5 more miles to the left. The other sign is vandalised and needs some more over-stickers.

Side by side riding on the NCN 67 TPT http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/

Great cycleway - NCN67 TPT http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/

Its OK to get off and walk for a bit - especially, if like this Cambridge cyclist, hills are a bit of a shock.

Paths wide enough for pleasant side by side cycling.

These bicycle access narrowings vary a bit some quite tight, others loose. There's a horse step over on the left.

Here the NCN67 TPT http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/ crosses a road.

Good wide cycleway here on the NCN67 and TPT http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/

Excellent wide hard surface cycleway. TPT is the http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/

Riding along the NCN 67 only a small gradient here.

Site of Birley East Colliery 1888-1943

This wide cycleway on NCN 67 across open land was once the site of Birley East Colliery 1888-1943.

Cycleway on top of former colliery area

Another restriction - necessary here to stop motor vehicles getting onto the bridge behind the camera. This is on the TPT see: http://www.transpenninetrail.org.uk/

Nice and wide cycle bridge on NCN 67.

Riders crossing a bridge on the NCN cycle route

These narrowings are necessary, but to be honest a bit wearing, along this cycle route.

Traffic calming on the NCN67 route.

Necessary restriction on NCN routes to permit cycles, but prohibit motorised vehicles.

Harrison, Sidney and Mason push their bikes up these 'Dutch Ramps'.

Channels to help get your bike up and down the steps

Lots of folk out today enjoying this cycleway

Wonderful woodland cycleway

Lovely section of the NCN67 through overhanging trees here.

Good hard wide surface here

Joining the Trans Pennine Trail (TPT). Left for Beighton (where we went) and right to Rother Valley country park.

Some covered cycle parking has been added on to the car park near-ish to the Halfway tramstop.

My Giant Halfway, at Halfway, which is the current head of navigation of the Sheffield tram system.

Big cycle road markings - and a cycle contraflow.

Cycle parking and some cycle route signage near the centre of Sheffield.

Signed cycle route in Sheffield - this road closed to motor vehicles.

This is very much a Cycle Street, closed at one end to motor vehicles. Portobello Street with some Sheffield - style cycle racks.

I think that's a channel on the left edge of these steps, to help wheel bikes, then again it might just be a drain.

Bike storage in a basement. (Location deliberately ambiguous ;-)

Cycleway signage at night.

Some "Sheffield racks", in Sheffield.

Useful right turn lane here for cycles only, avoiding having to use this busy Hunter's Bar roundabout.

"oh, and that's a bad miss!" (An oblique reference to the home of the World Snooker championships hosted here.)

This street environment seems vastly improved since my last visit to Sheffield in 2004. This is a big toucan crossing and you can cycle up Howard Street - it's plenty wide enough to work well.

This big lump of steel outside Sheffield Station is known as the 'Cutting Edge', and does a great job of hiding the dual carriageway at your exit from the railway station. I'm rather surprised that it was made in Bristol and not Sheffiel ... [more]
