Just discovered these Lime bikes outside MKC Station, as soon as I’ve downloaded the app and signed up I’ll be on my way. The cost is £1 to unlock and then 15 pence per minute which works out at about £1 per mile. https://www.li ... [more]

An advisory 'NO CYCLING' sign on NCN51 through Central Milton Keynes. Cycling is not prohibited here, if it were then the round no cycling sign would have been used. What this demonstrates is the lack of a sign to suggest that cycles should ... [more]

While most sensible places are getting rid of city centre car parking MK is throwing in the towel and building this 1,000 space multi-storey car storage and congestion generator.

Chicane to help enforce the diverted cycle route around CMK.

It's hard to see in this photo but in the distance there are many pedestrian barriers used as chicanes to deter cycling on this former bike route into CMK.

Variety of cycle lockers occupying previous open space and crowding out the trees at Milton Keynes station square. I don't know why they can't be put in the many apparently empty ground floor retail spaces around here. Feels like MK has let ... [more]

Very poor double decker racks in Station Square, Milton Keynes. One problem seems to be that the upper racks do not lock into position, with the result that they slide back and drop.

Excellent underpass in central Milton Keynes

There are lots of underpasses in Milton Keynes and then for some reason this flat crossing of a main road.

In a city with lots of decent segregated cycle routes, they've decided to send users of NCN route 51 up a main road with heavy bus traffic.

Cycle parking in Milton Keynes and an arrow for users of NCN route 51 to turn right - but I think they mean straight ahead.

NCN route 51 runs through the car park here.

Really? Cars can move freely but bikes can't?

You couldn't make it up - there are plenty of decent segregated cycleways in Milton Keynes, and Sustrans manages to find a route for NCN route 51 on whch cycling is not even allowed! See also #101701.

There's a good reason why this is not a cycle route.

Don't bother taking your bike this way because you'll have to carry it over a stepped bridge acros steh railway.
