There's some excellent new cycle infrastructure in Leeds - only buses, taxis and bikes can now use Leeds Bridge.

Vast and wide busy road, with school children trying to get to Lawnswood. 40mph traffic and vehicles often close pass. Plenty of space for a segregated bike lane, especially the south side where there is a wide verge.

There are two lanes for traffic but no cycle way and this is a key route between suburbs and to access Moor Allerton shopping area. Speed of traffic should at least be reduced to 40mph to match the rest of the ring road, especially as there … [more]

Cycle path ends at Lawnswood cemetery and is too narrow. Need to extend at least to Bramhope.

Dangerous corner with very limited visibility for people on bikes turning off road towards Leeds Liverpool Canal towpath. Bi-directional cycle way needed on west side of Calverley Lane to allow safe turns.

Excess unused on-road parking down both sides of this 20mph street encourages speeding and dangerous driving. Replacing parking with cycle lane would provide a LS1-LS3-LS6 cycle route and discourage dangerous driving by taking space away … [more]

Tweet of video of a motor vehicle blocking the cycle lane, rider struggles to get past as lorry passes on the road.

Tweet about lots of motor vehicles parked on a very poorly marked cycleway (it looks like road side parking) - but the tweeter damages their own argument by cycling on the footway while recording the video and coming very close to … [more]

New path on Arthur's Rein around a new development site.

Bridge over the Wyke Beck.

Shared use path.

Path has been resurfaced out towards Tadcaster this year.

Path tends to get overgrown vegetation. Here I chopped some of it back at the bus stop.

Rough path towards White Rose Centre.

Path can get overgrown. This is in good condition.

New bridge over River Wharf.

New path linking with the upgraded bridge over River Wharf.

A1 Underpass.

Tunnel under A1. Official NCN67 continues behind the fence next to the road above the subway. If there was a hole in the fence the right bank could be a connected path. But the local residents might not be keen on this due to the noise from … [more]

Narrow overgrown cycle path. It's usable but not ideal.

Crossing point with a dropped curve to path. Path is currently overgrown but there is a bus lane cyclists can use.

Cycle / pedestrian path through traffic island.

Narrow path. Safer than on road perhaps? The path needs widening.

Crossing point for cyclists and pedestrians.

Former railway bridge at Newton Kyme (on the Wetherby-Tadcaster line, apparently the first casualty of the Beeching cuts), now reopened as part of NCN route 665.

No bridge over ELOR for Elmet Green Way, and no direct path onto Wood Lane bridge (you have to walk past it and turn back)

No Southbound cycle lane uphill to Skyliner RA. Room for a two-way track from Crossgates Rail stn > medical centre > JC Latter day St POW > Skyliner

CS2 ends here. Barwick Road Roundabout should have Toucan crossings on all arms and a new shared path NNE from RA to Southwood Cr (pave informal path)

Route through Meanwood Urban Farm. Careful of visitors.

Castleford Greenway newly surfaced path.

New surfaced path linking to the Trans Pennine Trail.

NCN66 Location: Killingbeck, Shadwell (England, UK) Cut back between Halton Moor and Temple Newsam

Cross Green Lane Location: , Knowsthorpe (England, UK) Cut back and litter pick in Cross Green

Narrow shared space path ends at a random spot.

Leeds Core Cycle Route. Kirkstall Brewery Halls to Beckett University. Shared space path through the park.

Modal filter as part of Leeds Core Cycle Route running through South Parade. Stops Rat running traffic from using residential streets to avoid traffic lights but enables walking and cycling.

Part of Leeds Core Cycle Route, Kirkstall Brewery Halls to Beckett University. Shared space path crosses the residential road at a point with very poor visibility.

Vans and camper vans are always parked obscuring this popular pedestrian and cycle crossing. Needs a build out and narrowing of the carriageway at least to enable visibility past the vans with a raised table.

Free left turn for cyclists into a contra-flow.

Because of the angle of Outwood Lane, often cars push out onto the mainroad to get a better view for pulling out, however this then encroaches on the cycling lane and create a possible collision. Also there is severe damage on the tarmac … [more]

Two lanes of queuing traffic and/or one lane of parked cars and one lane of queuing traffic. Road is just wide enough for two cars so bicycles cannot pass or filter easily without crossing into oncoming traffic. This discourages active … [more]

Swing bridge on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal (NCN route 66).

Locks on the Aire Valley Towpath

Footbridge linking two parts of a housing development, I think.

Cyclists on NCN route 66 can fork left to rejoin the Aire Valley Towpath

Cyclists on NCN route 66 should use this road rather than the Aire Valley Towpath - because of the poor surface, I think.

Weird and dangerous to have such a short section of on-road cycleway - either protect it properly, have some shared-use, or buy a few metres of land to the left.
