A wooden barrier chicane on NCN3 / NCN33 just off River Lane in Bridgwater. The gap through the chicane is just over 1m, and it is very constrictive for any cycle much larger than a standard bike. The path here is gravel, with a generally ... [more]

A photo showing just how restrictive the A frames on the trail over the RSPB's Ham Wall reserve are. The handlebars on the bike shown are 44cm wide. There is an identical A frame at the eastern end of the reserve. See also photo #176055 ... [more]

The barrier chicane at the end of the off road section of the Strawberry Line / NCN33 from Cheddar to Axbridge. The section of path from Sharpham Road to Cheddar Road is reasonably well surfaced and wide, although it is normally busy with ... [more]

The Strawberry Line / NCN26 path behind Wideatts Road in Cheddar. This is a shared path which is narrow with an uneven and loose surface, and is badly lit. The entrance to the path at Valley Line Industrial Park is especially restrictive.

Barrier chicane at the northern end of the NCN3 / NCN33 path between Bawdrip and Cossington. The gap between the barriers is 1m, and may be difficult for some types of cycle to navigate.

Barriers at the exit onto the A38 of the section of the Strawberry Line / NCN26 between Shute Shelve and the A38. There is a well sized pass through on the right of the wooden barrier chicane, although it goes over a metal grid that can be ... [more]

Exit of the Strawberry Line / NCN26 path onto Racurium Cottages just north of Axbridge. As the picture shows there is a small step onto the roadside and a boulder beside the path. The boulder is well placed so there should be adequate spa ... [more]

Me and my girlfriend on the strawberry line between cheddar and yatton

Not suitable for bikes. Lots of broken up rocks.throughout the whole path. In addition, risk of prosecution for using a 'mechanical vehicle' on this path.

Strawberry Line path Location: Axbridge (England, United Kingdom) Bloody dangerous. This is a one-way road for motor traffic. That white line marks the edge of the contraflow bike lane. It might have been an acceptable width once, but ... [more]

Burnham on Sea's "No Cycling Zone Fine £500.00 Maximum" The placement of this sign surely refers only to the footway does it not? But it is clearly visible to road users and might make them think that cyclists have no right to be there ... [more]

I saw this sign Highbridge, Somerset during the summer holidays. Is this an admission that these roads are hostile for cycling? Is it an apology to cyclists using these roads? Surely there should be no need warn motorists of a cycle friend ... [more]
