Mandatory cycle lane needed here

Cycle lane needed here on both sides of the road

Back road to Keighley used by cyclists while cars can use bypass, 40mph speed limit makes cycling less safe, otherwise people could commute by bicycle to and from Keighley. Consider cycle lanes and 20mph or 30mph speed limit.

The main road from Burley to Menston should have cycle lanes

Cyclists could be allowed to turn left on red here to ease congestion.

Needs a seperate cycle way to encourage more cycling in maoin route to bradford

Cycle lane exists all the way down Road Ings. Not separated from motorised traffic, poorly maintained, not swept, too rough. Cyclists currently cycle away from this.

Going westwards through Saltaire, the space given to parking makes it unsafe for bikes to approach the lights. Just before and after the lights there are two lanes for motor vehicles and no bike lane. Cars going in nearside lane go too cl ... [more]

A cycle lane or shared pavement would make the safe commute between Halifax and Keighley possible.

Extention of the Great Northern trial in either diections (towards Keighely and towards Thornton) would be used by many families, including commutes to schools.

The B6429 is used by local cyclists to make trips to Bingley, including to the train station. Cars drive dangerously fast between Cullingworth and Harden and many accidents have happened . Families could safely make the cycle journey to St. ... [more]

The A65 is very busy and 2 cyclists were injured last week. Cyclists need a cycleway between Burley and Ilkley to distance themselves from cars and lorries

Segregated cycle way on A65 between Burley and Ilkley

Cycleway needed up a busy main road

Cycleway needed up a busy main road

This is marked on maps as a route cyclists can use but there are big rocks which mean you need to stop to negotiate, and the route has been water damaged and overgrown.

There are a few schools in the area: a secondary girls school and a primary school. The area has mostly industrial and commuting traffic which is inconsiderate to cyclists, is very fast and often leaves a large amount of rubble on the roads ... [more]

Proper, segregated cycle path needed for the length of this road from Bradford.

Pave the towpath from Kildwick to Silsden.

Segregated cycle path to the station.

Segregated cycle path to Ilkley

Segregated cycle paths to Silsden and Skipton.

Make the bus lane to Saltaire permanent, not just rush hour.

The council recently removed the advisory painted cycle lane and the pedestrian island so that more traffic could queue at the lights outside the primary school. This needs to be reversed, or ideally the entire "old road" (B6265) made buses ... [more]

Busy stretch of main street, on a corner, with car parking both sides of the road and narrow pavements. Idea: 1. Main street becomes one way for cars from the park to Cleasby Road 2. Bingley Road one way, going the other way 3. Widen ... [more]

This should be a priority route for cycling rather than cycling being banned

Airedale GH is a major employer with lots of staff living and commuting locally. There are no segregated cycle routes along the busy A6265 which also serves schools and as a route to the local station

Airedale General Hospital is a major local employer so lots of staff living and commuting locally. There are no safe (segregated) cycle routes to the hospital.

A very busy commuting station, more housing being built which will be bought by commuters to Leeds and Bradford. No cycle route provision has been announced, there are always some 'plans' but no action. The A629 routing and some existing fa ... [more]

A shared-use footway alongside Prince's Way that forms part of NCN66. Not especially wide.

NCN66 alongside A641 Manchester Road dual carriageway. The lamppost needn't be so in the way.

The connection from the painted cycle lane to the parallel zebra crossing over to the segregated cycle track on Valley Road.

An unusual sign for a line-segregated footway. The cycle route crosses four crossings to get to Wakefield Road... #110661 Some of the toucan crossings do not have call boxes on both the left and right hand sides of the crossing.

This is perhaps not how the Dutch would approach a crossing of a main dual carriageway. Give Way to the traffic island?

The cycle crossing across the junction of Canal Road, Valley Road and Balme Street.

Junction of Valley Road and Canal Road.

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.

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.

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

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

Pavement hopping cycle infrastructure coming into Bingley town centre.

The Leeds & Liverpool Canal towpath approaching the Three Rise Locks in Bingley. The path is quite steep here for a short distance. Half way up the locks, a ramped footbridge leads across the dual carriageway to Keighley Road in Bingley.

The Leeds & Liverpool Canal towpath in Bingley. Actually quite noisy due to the dual carriageway over the wall.

A foot and cycle bridge across the A650 dual carriageway to access the Airedale Greenway and Britannia Street in Bingley.
