Who wants to cycle here on the A64 flyover. Best is enemy of good?????

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 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]

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

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

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)

Narrow shared space path ends at a random spot.

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.

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]

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.

Cycle Superhighway 2, Leeds, with annoying End of Cycle Route sign.

No signage - the underpass is probably the better route towards central Leeds.

This route through the fence is definitely not the way to/from central Leeds. Signage needed.

Signage is needed here at the Leeds Ring Road

Improve surface with decent tarmac

Wide road used by boy racers and quad bikes - pavements too narrow for social distancing and no safe cycle lanes. Make road narrow and give space to cyclists and pedestrians please!

Road is fast and busy with no cycle path. Some blind corners. Meant to be a 40 but is national from the roundabout and a cycle path would make it safer. Needs improvement to make wakefield to Leeds commuting possible

Lights added to roundabout which is almost impossible for cyclist to manage during rush hour.

One of the arterial routes in and out of the centre could really do with a segregated cycle lane to prevent close passes from speeding motorists. Roads already wide enough, just needs some white lines painting on it.

Need a better cycle route into Leeds from the south of the city

E Chevin Rd is quite wide at the bottom but doesn't have any cycling provision. Cars also routinely ignore the 30mph limit, which should be extended beyond the entrances to the parking for Chevin Forest Park. The national speed limit is … [more]

There is an existing section of the A660 which has a white line about a metre from the kerb. This runs from the far end of the Burley by-pass roundabout all the way round the Otley by-pass it has a couple of breaks but it is also full of … [more]

Drop the pavement to create an entrance or exit off the A660

Alwoodley Lane - an accident waiting to happen, parked cars everywhere and ridiculous road markings ...cycle path needed ...can then link to outer ring road path eventually

Cycle path needed between Otley and Pool

Bradford road is very very wide and both the street and pavements are full of clutter, remove the clutter and fit cycle paths to both sides.

Make this one way for cars and two ways for bicycles

Access to Wetherby Railway path is shocking, narrow pavement and poorly signed. Cycle lane and signs to properly connect bike route to Thorp Arch access on Freemans Way also needed

Traffic calming and road layout needed around the mini roundabout. Far too many car drivers take massive risks here. Parking on approach from North needs to be removed to reduce risk, speed bumps need installing on all approaches.

This road has a central reservation but i'm not sure what it does. Road is 20mph but if you cycle down at 20ish the the cars are itching to get by. many cars parked at side of road so you need to pull in to middle so as not to get doored. … [more]

Remove the central hatching, insert cycle lanes are take the speed limit down.

King Lane popular route for cyclists getting out of north leeds. it's quite a narrow road and cars go too fast. signs reminding motorists of presence of cyclists would be an improvement or (dream on) road widening.

No direct access from the canal to the city centre using cycleway.

Cyclist have priority here, but rarely observed by other road users. Needs to be made more obvious who has right of way here

Building site has narrowed the path, its meant to be a cycleway but you have to hop a kerb to go on the pavement which is no wider than 1m in places.

Too little width on road to cycle without feeling unsafe on busy main road. Apples from Lawnswood to Otley.

A very narrow dangerous road for both cycling and walking. Traffic speeds. Children walking to 6 schools and a scout & guide hall. Why not make it one way with Westwood Way, increase width of pavement and add a cycle lane.

Cycleway needed from Fforde Green to Barrack Road, inbound. Heavy cycle use (and far more use if it felt safe) but downhill (speeding cars and vans), narrow carriageway (the way it is set out on the wide road), and parked cars. Mostly used … [more]

I suspect many more people would commute between Harrogate and Leeds if the A61 was more cycle friendly.

Better cycle lane on bridge esp out of town (could merge right hand lane to make space)

Access to cycle route but narrow dangerous road

The route from Headingley via Beckett Park is excellent but it ends at Station Parade and you have to mix with the traffic on Morris Lane and Kirkstall Hill. Could a route via Kirkstall health centre and leisure centre be devised to make it … [more]

Cycle path just ends for this junction. Should be continued across the junction like other side roads.

Hardly and designated cycle lanes between Castleford/Pontefract & Leeds

All of !meanwood Road should have SAFE separate cycle way.

Heading out of town towards Burley Road, this junction is the most dangerous part of what would otherwise be a great cycle route. On-road cycle lane needed.

To make it easier for cyclist to go round this roundabout, as separate and widened cycle/walking lane would be great

The volume of parked cars at school drop off time create a bottleneck.

Build a cycle route in Park

Too narrow with cars racing to cut into left lane after lights. Needs designated cycle lane or tidal flow system of 3 lanes to protect cycle space.

A means of crossing the canal that doesn’t involve carrying bikes up a steep narrow staircase

Busy dual carriageway with space to add a cycle way to make it safer for cyclists commuting into Leeds

Metal gates need to be removed

Blind corners at either end of this bridge make this road dangerous for cyclists. Cycle lanes needed.
