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

BBC news website: NHS worker scared of cycling around Sheffield A nurse from Sheffield says she is terrified that she is going to be knocked down by a car when she cycles to work. Ann Gregory uses a helmet camera to document the nu ... [more]

Cycle crossings south of Sheffield station

Buses, bikes and taxis only

Road closure, Sheffield - but it needs improvement for cycling.

This could be a useful crossing and cut-through

Cut-through parallel to NCN route 627, Kelham Island, Sheffield

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

Did anyone seriously think that drivers would block the straight-ahead lane rather than pulling forward into the ASL?

Crossing the new Trippetts Lane cycle route, Sheffield

Rising bollards, Sheffield University

Bus gate (presumably a tram is a kind of bus?) in Sheffield - open for cycling with care

Bus and bike gate on Blonk Street bridge (NCN route 6), Sheffield

Victoria Quays, Sheffield - attractive but not ideal for cycling.

Wide toucan crossing from NCN route 6 to Sheffield station

Come with me on the deeply unpleasant experience that is #cycling to the hairdressers on Ecclesall Road #Sheffield S11

“If I’d continued to go straight on, I would have gone under the wheels of this lorry” – possibly the most frightening near miss we’ve seen (and the cyclist is a senior police officer committed to making the roads safer) https:/ ... [more]

One side of the double bridge on Shude Hill has been closed off to motor vehicles and is available for cycling. The roadway through the other arch is one-way.

Cycle access from Workhouse Lane onto the shared footway at West Bar.

A 20mph zone and shared footway at West Bar. I maybe should have taken the photo a little way back to show better how the dropped kerb is the wrong side of the 'give way' line at the West Bar roundabout, which could cause problems for a ... [more]

A pedestrian crossing and roundabout at the top of Corporation Street.

End of the long-term roadworks (see #112483), a cycle lane up Corporation Street, and more redevelopment work imminent.

Cycle access to and across Shalesmoor at the end of Bowling Green Street, although the toucan crossing is staggered.

A point to leave the A61 Shalesmoor dual carriageway and turn right using the toucan crossing, or turn left to access Bowling Green Street (at #112466).

Cycle lanes on Shalesmoor, and damage to the footway consistent with pavement parking.

Cycle facilities on Shalesmoor.

NCN627 on Green Lane, with building work going on.

Quiet streets for this section of NCN627.

An overrun area for U-turning vehicles on new Derek Dooley Way gyratory layout, but judging from the tyre marks on the footway, even this is insufficient.

Cycle markings through the junction onto Derek Dooley Way, where almost all traffic, in both lanes, turns right.

Apparently this is a recommended route for cyclists!

A narrow island forming part of a staggered toucan crossing. This isn't going to work well if more than one person tries to use it at the same time in opposite directions.

Painted cycle lane on Wicker, and off-side bus lane leading to a bus gate at the Derek Dooley Way junction.

A toucan crossing across Wicker, and a point to leave the carriageway to either use the crossing or join the path to the riverside. I'm uncertain what the role of the bollard is.

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.

Old cycle facilities and roadworks to create something new.

A shared-use footway on Broad Street West, which has been made one-way, so making it possible to continue using it both ways by bike.

Sheffield Cycle Route

Instead of improving this cycle lane, @SheffCouncil are going to remove it to make way for two way traffic.

We've worked hard to make this really safe & obvious. Can't understand why drivers keep going into the cycle lane

A substandard shared use (for the timid) and a substandard cycle lane (for the confident). Neither is good enough.

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.

Toucan crossing on the NCN 6

Here the NCN67 TPT crosses a road.

We've heard recently Danny Dorling describe this sort of thing as 'the open sewers of the 21st century'. Certainly the chevrons on the roundabout make it look rather more like a race-track than it needs to be.

Traffic calming on the NCN67 route.

NCN on road section - there is some traffic calming along here.

Out of the country cycleway and back onto the road - an cars routinely parked across the pavement.

The road environment is rather busy here, which is why there is a Sustrans Connect2 project to build a connecting route to the National Cycle Network from the tram stop.

Big cycle road markings - and a cycle contraflow.

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

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

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.

Outside Sheffield station.
