On a bright spring morning an eastbound cyclist on ncr 24 pauses at a commemorative plaque on the parapet of the old railway's over-bridge. In the line's hey day, long-distance express trains passed this way. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi ... [more]

NCN4 in Bath on busy city roads, here it turns off the A36.

Bit of a shock being on a very busy city road that is still NCN4 after coming off the Kennet and Avon canal towpath.

Monkton Combe which seems to be dominated by a private school. The cycle route to the left is down a very steep narrow path through the school grounds.

Tucking Mill Lane

Tucking Mill Lane - NCN24 - a narrow, windy and hilly lane.

They don't seem to want cyclists going up here! The house next door is where the father of geology once lived: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Smith_(geologist)

Bridge of the former Somerset and Dorset Railway - now cycle route ncn24.

Sign listing benefactors of the route. Thanks everyone :-)

NCN24 uses the route of the Somerset and Dorset railway 1874.

NCN24 old railway bridge

Sturdy chicanes and some cycle racks at Midford, ncn24. Barriers like these are necessary to block motorbikes and quadbikes. See also: https://twitter.com/walking_boston/status/1061924357742698497

At Midford the cycle route on the old railway line goes through a pub car park.

1700m tunnel, Bath

100m from the south eastern portal to the 1700m tunnel on the two tunnels greenway in Bath.

Deep inside the 1700m tunnel on the NCN244 Bath there's an eerie sound / art installation.

Shaftesbury Road, Bath

One way shopping street choked with stored motor vehicles.

Good bit of accommodation for cycling in this shopping street - which is sadly one-way with no contraflow.

One way streets like this - especially with no cyclist exception - seem to me to be such a big mistake. All about 'flow' and 'capacity'.

Busy junction with central poorly marked cycle lane.

Surprising amount of central Bath given over to surface storage of motor vehicles. The multi storey facility from where I took this (see #85425) is almost empty.

A multi storey motor vehicle storage facility lies almost completely empty while the surface car park outside is crammed. See #85426.
