Hartshead Pike Very cold and windy. but a great ride.

Excellent surface throughout this route, all the way to Park Bridge (and beyond). This former railway is a good facility, however, it's very poorly signed (ie non-existent) from the town centre and the start is difficult to find.

Not suitable for anything other than MTB!

Barriers like this really aren't necessary and tend to block these routes to disabled folk. There should be a bollard or two, nothing more.

Tameside nr Manchester on the Lord Sheldon Way . This states the obvious but more of these are required to prevent obstruction of the footway especially when it is shared like here. Also enforcement notices are very welcome.

Ashton West Tram stop Greater Manchester. Cycle parking comprises stands and horizontal lockers.

Excellent bike paths on route 85

Dukinfield Lift Bridge (there is an access from the bridge to Astley street near Smith Street)

Great track going down to Compstall from Werneth Low.

Close up of the van shown in #19106. Parking like this also blocks road the view of oncoming traffic for road users trying to turn onto the A628 from Green Lane.

A van is parked on the path adjacent to the busy A628 leaving barely enough room for pedestrians to pass and no space for disabled access of buggies. This is quite common in the area.

There's an opportunity to provide a junction here enabling cycle access to Woolley Lane.

This is priority cycle access is unmarked. Cars are usually parked close by, obscuring access.

Looking down Taylor Street. There's proirity given to cars travelling down the road with cycle-width gaps either side, but no cycle-way markings.
