Lots of space for cycles in the middle of this intersection

Clearly too many drivers are cutting into this cycle lane.

Modal filter on bridge over Lancaster station - the Cycle Track - Look Both Ways sign is presumably aimed at pedestrians.

Bike tools by the cycle stands, Lancaster station

There are now 100 high-density cycle spaces under the road bridge at Lancaster station.

Who was it collecting the different ways to do ped zones with cycle access? A unique variation in Lancaster?

The City Loop cycleway crosses the stepped path between the Castle and the Maritime Museum.

The elevated cycleway approaching the Millennium Bridge in Lancaster.

The promenade at Morecambe is shared-use, with the occasional reminder sign.

A sign and information board for the Way of the Roses, and one of several groups of cycle parking stands along the seafront in Morecambe.

Cycle lanes leading onto the roundabout in the centre of Morecambe.

A roundabout with cycle lanes on it.

Just a sign to warn motorists of cycle path users crossing Hilmore Way. No zebra crossing.

No zebra crossing for getting across busy Hilmore Way.

Routes NCN 69 and 700 crossing Central Drive via a raised zebra crossing with Cyclists Dismount signs.

Cycle parking on the Stone Jetty at Morecambe.

Cycle parking on Morecambe promenade.

Worn out painted cycle lane only visible by its colour, leading from Water St to the Toucan Crossing across Cable St to Chapel St. Google Streetview shows that those signs have been facing the wrong way for over 2 years!

I'm not sure if the marking is to indicate that this should be used by cyclists going in this direction onto Water St, because it is so worn out, but otherwise this is a cycle lane for getting to the toucan crossing across Cable St behind t ... [more]

Warning of the two-way cycle lane crossing the exit from Butterfield St onto Chapel St.

The crossing from Chapel St to Water St, across Cable St, is not exactly up to Dutch standards!

Two-way cycle lane on Chapel St, approaching junction across Cable St. The narrow footway leads to people walking in the cycle lane.

Two-way cycle lane in Chapel St, without segregation from the main carriageway. The footway is quite narrow here and pedestrians were walking in the cycle lane.

Two-way cycletrack from Chapel St around the corner to North Road, and narrow footway.

Two-way cycle track towards the riverside, via North Road, Chapel St and Water St.

Contraflow cycle lane in North Road.

Time limited Cyclists Dismount sign in Cheapside, along with damaged Pedestrian Zone signage, and some cycle parking.

Contraflow cycle lane interrupted by loading bay outside pub.

With-flow and contraflow painted cycle lanes in Church Street, with access to the Stonewell toucan crossing across the footway to the left.

Narrow shared-use footway to access toucan crossing on Stonewell.

Toucan crossing across Stonewell.

Cobbled Moor Lane with cycle parking on traffic island, and access to a toucan crossing across Stonewell via a shared-use footway on the right.

Line-segregated path between Long Marsh Lane and the riverside. I think I'd be crossing the line rather than trying to pass someone coming the other way in such a narrow space.

The Edge Cycleworks in Chapel Street.

Directions at the end of the Millennium Bridge. The City Loop cycle route is on top of the viaduct, accessed from the other leg of the bridge.

Signage for the City Loop next to the railway bridge on Long Marsh Lane.

The City Loop signage coming from Lancaster station.

The cycle route cuts through a car park, with an S-shaped paint path where a straight one would fit.

Contraflow cycle lane on Phoenix Street, and shared footway connection on Parliament St to toucan crossing across towards the riverside. The contraflow lane will be encroached by any motor vehicle passing vehicles parked in the marked parki ... [more]

Smalleys cycle shop.

The turning circle at the end of Water Street has a cycle lane painted around it! The access to the riverside path (in #87599) can be seen (centre). The Sainsbury car park also exits onto the turning circle (at right).

Exit to Water Street. The turning circle has a cycle lane painted around it! (See also #87600)

NCN69 alongside the River Lune.

Path towards Lancaster, needing swept of decaying leaf mess in several locations.

NCN69 path to Morecambe and the A589. I think the sign for NCN6 could be positioned closer to the toucan crossing.

Shared-use footway alongside A589.

Exit from park to toucan crossing across A589 leading to NCN69 path on riverside.

No Cycling on the footway approaching a toucan crossing and shared-use path in park, or on the road including a bus lane signed for cycling? See also #87520.

One assumes that this dropped kerb and dilapidated road marking is so cyclists can leave the carriageway and use the toucan crossing ahead to cross to NCN69 path, but what the heck is that No Cycling sign all about? Does it apply to the roa ... [more]

Riverside cycleway towards Caton, at Green Ayre.

Entrance to underpass, with barriers at each end.

Not the prettiest of underpasses, and narrow with a corner at one end.

NCN69 turns right here to go down a ramp into the underpass beneath the road to the left. See also #87503 & #87504. The City Loop cycle route continues straight ahead on the shared footway.

Ramp up to main road before going back down to an underpass (see #87502).

Cycle parking at supermarket next to riverside NCN route.

No Cycling on this staircase! The stairs lead to a footbridge attached to the side of the railway bridge high above the river. Probably as quick to cycle to the Millennium Bridge now than to lug a bike up and down these stairs.

A bit of a blind corner, but widened enough to take the turn away from the stonework.

Riverside path to the west of the rail bridge.

Cycle parking outside the maritime museum entrance.

Riverside path (and flood defence gate), and a couple of stands.

End of the Church St contraflow cycle lane, and a toucan crossing across the A6.

Cycle marking on the A6.

Cycle parking stands outside Lancaster bus station, next to the smoking area.

Cycle parking stands next to Lancaster Castle and Priory.

Cyclists Dismount 10am-5pm, and at other times? No Entry applies all the time. Maybe not the intention.

Two-way cycling in the partially pedestrianised Church St in Lancaster.

Cycle parking and lockers in a car park next to the bus stances.

Cycle parking and hire bikes at Morecambe station, although the hire bikes seem to be taking over the passenger cycle parking too.

Even on these single coach trains, the entrance door leading to the bike stowage location is indicated externally.
