@MCRCycleSam @cocteautriplets @tcornwallis @RantyHighwayman @Lollercake @StreetWurrier St Andrew Square is quite interesting as you can see the difference between old/new since only part has been redesigned so far. Leith Street as well (both good and bad there!)Alex @AvGeekAlex • 22 Feb 03:29 GMT
@MCRCycleSam Amazing how bad some pavements are... Roads, fixed X6 times moreMr Wookie @Wookie2Mr • 21 Feb 12:36 GMT
@satrain18 @MCRCycleSam @AdamCTyson @fatsculler @Chris_Boardman Sorry, I don't have thousands of pounds worth of kit. I'll stop cycling until I can get three different bikes for my 3-mile commute.
It's not them and us, we all have to share the road.
@davelostdave @lennartnout @RantyHighwayman @bricycle @camcycle So presumably this runs the ped and cycle stage during the all-red too?
What's the main difference? This is better for cycle desire line, CYCLOPS for ped desire line?
@bricycle Pretty much all of Chorltonville. Naturally filtered, plenty of greenery, low traffic enough. It's just got a few leaks in the filters that let it down slightly and it's not quite as walkable as I'd like as there's often no direct way between two points metres apart due to fences https://t.co/bvRALwrALeb i c y c l e s @MCRCycleSam • 19 Feb 17:12 GMT
@bricycle Also Brunswick Park (ex Brunswick Street) on Oxford Road, obviously :)b i c y c l e s @MCRCycleSam • 19 Feb 17:08 GMT
@jrothwell He does, but only when accessed from the general traffic lane or bus lane. He doesn't like cycle lanes, painted or protected. On quiet streets yes, the carriageway and ASL are the best place to cycle rather than a thinner Cycleway. Not on even moderately busy streets thoughb i c y c l e s @MCRCycleSam • 19 Feb 16:56 GMT
@karensskitchen @AdamCTyson @MCRCycleSam @fatsculler @Chris_Boardman Speed is also relative too.
You may feel you're being overtaken by racers, but at the same time someone may feel the same about yourself without any intention on your part.
@MCRCycleSam Yes many cities in Tuscany do this already & only allow residents with passes & deliveries into the centre along with buses. If you’re a tourist staying in the centre with a car you drive in unload & then park outsideStuart Holmes @StuartH74458819 • 19 Feb 11:37 GMT
@DeepsMcLeod @fatsculler @Chris_Boardman Sure, and some people want to ride all the way as it's often faster/cheaper/more reliable than the equivalent train, and means they don't need to go to the gym separately.
And then appropriate clothing would be sensible.
@fatsculler @Chris_Boardman Correct me if I'm wrong but the average commute in London (where your second picture was taken) is longer than NL right?
A suit is all very well for a 3 mile 8mph pootle, but if you've got 15 miles to cover between your suburb and the city centre...
@MCRCycleSam @Lets_getcycling @Klsch10 @SalfordCouncil Clear as mud.
So in the meantime councils can drag down the bee networks idea/brand by advertising schemes with sub par dangerous designs and boast about having secured Bee network money for it.
@Lets_getcycling @Klsch10 @SalfordCouncil Noooooo. Cycle lanes should be continuous otherwise they're not safe or attractive!
Give ways on cycle lanes will ensure that confident people use the roads, less confident people will drive, and intermediate people will get a false sense of security and be hit by a driver...

@dougiewestender @tcornwallis @YPLAC @MCRCycleSam @theJeremyVine @LStreetsScot @CyclingSurgeon @magnatom I hate the hazard light thing. As a cyclists I think they are pulling out and slow tk give them space only to find the car empty and parked in a bus stop.David A @tofolo_1 • 18 Feb 18:57 GMT
@ShankillBear @YPLAC @MCRCycleSam @theJeremyVine @LStreetsScot @CyclingSurgeon @magnatom Okay Mike, do you know if the guy just parked the 10 metres down the road (where he ended up anyway) and cause no issues to anybody. It’s not about me, him or you, it’s about making sure places are safe and accessible to all at all times.Thomas Cornwallis @tcornwallis • 18 Feb 18:40 GMT
@ShankillBear @YPLAC @MCRCycleSam @theJeremyVine @LStreetsScot @CyclingSurgeon @magnatom Imagine using mistake in language over some illegal parking creating the area to be unsafe and inaccessible to all.Thomas Cornwallis @tcornwallis • 18 Feb 18:07 GMT
@MarkHammill @ShowMeASignBryn @Owler_Nook MCC seem to have used tiny red route signs, same size as regular parking restriction signs. Maybe not great for being able to see out of a moving car though...b i c y c l e s @MCRCycleSam • 18 Feb 17:29 GMT
@Nickoli @MCRCycleSam Other cities have managed to control traffic during smog situations.
If you're at the stage where you have to stop driving to keep pollutants below a certain level you are well into the depths of enforcement anyway.
@ShowMeASignBryn @MCRCycleSam @Owler_Nook @Klsch10 As a Taxi still a taxi in other boroughs as far as red lines are concerned? Quite a lot of the PH vehicles in Nottm are Taxi's in the neighbouring Gedling borough, but can only be pre-booked in the city (the same firms also have loads on Wolverhampton plates for some reason).Kev S 🇪🇺 @kevjs1982 • 18 Feb 16:25 GMT
@Owler_Nook @MCRCycleSam @Klsch10 No, they can still drop off, but they can't wait for ten minutes before someone hops in. This was how they got red routes approved in London and it's stuck ever since.Bryn @ShowMeASignBryn • 18 Feb 14:03 GMT
