Direct route from Haworth station (steam railway) to the centre - with a very steep hill to push a bike up.

Bloody cheek - this car trader displays its wares on the footway, blocking it to pedestrians, wheelchair users etc (see also the Google Satellite image).

Cycle parking at Queen Street in Bingley.

A toucan crossing across Bingley Main Street. A lane leads through to the railway station from here.

A sign for some cycle parking, although I couldn't see any outside the station where the sign is pointing. However, there is cycle parking inside the station.

No Vehicles and Cyclists Dismount on Foundry Hill leading to a toucan crossing across Main Street (at #110745). There were no such signs at the other end of the lane. A dropped kerb could also be provided.

Cycle parking on Bingley Main Street.

Cycle parking in the Lidl car park. Perhaps a little close to the kerb and at risk of bikes parked there being hit by opening car doors.

The path from Bingley station to Ferncliffe Road and beyond to the Airedale Greenway passes the Aldi car park.

The path to Bingley station crosses the entrance to the Aldi car park.

The path from the Waterloo Road car park ends at the Aldi car park, but another path connects across to Ferncliffe Road. Hazard tactiles have been used in place of cycleway tactiles.

The line-segregated path ends and the cycle route to the station continues through the Waterloo Road car park.

A dropped kerb at the end of the Waterloo Road car park for accessing the railway station and the cycle parking there at #110734. The path also continues to a flight of steps up to the Park Road bridge.

Approaching the end of the segregated cycle track from Valley Road.

A complex junction of Canal Road, Valley Road, Balme Street and the goods ramp from the Broadway shopping centre. The traffic signals seemed to be quite responsive to the limited traffic I saw at the time.

The cycle track on Valley Road approaching Bradford city centre.

A segregated cycle track on Valley Road. A bit surprising that half-battered kerbs have been used rather than the splayed ones used nearby on CS1 at #89793.

A segregated cycle track on Valley Road, and a connection through to the end of Leeming Street.

An unusual rectangular sign for a line-segregated footway, stuck in the middle of said footway. The markings ahead go onto the (eastbound) carriageway, while the sign ahead has cycles on the opposite side to the pedestrians compared to this ... [more]
