Bridge over St. Peter's Way.

Route 55.

Route 55.

Approaching Colchester Drive.

The new cycle lanes along Chorley New Road, ending prematurely at Beaumont Road. This is a major junction and cyclists should be given protection here. Ed (simon) these lanes are being used for motor vehicle storage, see: … [more]

New wider wand-protected cycle lanes installed along Chorley New Road. Unfortunately as of uploading this image, they end at Beaumont Road.

Rapid cycleway prioritisation route runs along A666 this is a 50mph road off M61 where cycling is banned. Parallel Manchester Rd B6536 would be much better

Overgrown and overhanging trees

There’s no room for cyclists on this road towards Harwood and it’s a very busy 2 lane road in parts. The pavement is to narrow foe cyclists and pedestrians.

A proper segregated cycle path should run along main roads from The crown roundabout to Bolton to encourage safe active transport on this constantly busy route which cannot manage currently capacity for cars

Cycleway (in both directions) blocked by parked cars

New cycleway across Cutacre Country Park. Loose gravel surface so be careful when turning.

A pleasant place to be although I have some reservations about the surface treatment. Gravel does not equal "countryside". This is a wholly man-made environment and therefore, concerns about sealed surfaces looking too "urban" should be … [more]

Setts being relaid during construction of a new towpath surface on the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal

Route from shopping centre to Bolton train/bus interchange - not much improvement needed to make this a decent cycle route.

Route from shopping centre to central Bolton - not much improvement needed to make this a decent cycle route.

Route from the centre of Bolton to shopping centre - not much improvement needed to make this a decent cycle route.

This bridge, crossing the m61 to link two offroad pathways, has a flat section of concrete at the side of each stairway, enabling a bicycle to be easily pushed up or down. This may or may not be intentional, it could be for drainage … [more]

Major path through Leverhulme Park. Other sections closer to Long Lane have been renovated with smooth asphalt recently, all shared use so not best practice, but wide enough (about 4 metres) that it doesn't cause many problems. Though this … [more]
