Milton Keynes Navel gazing mumbo jumbo about a cycling strategy for the business area of MK providing secure cycle parking and showers. It is next to the unit shown at #64436, which explains more.

Central Milton Keynes Pernicious signage that suggests that this cycleway is only for the walker.

Central Milton Keynes See #47932.

Central Milton Keynes This was not designed as a footway but the wear here suggests that it is used as such, despite lack of dropped kerbs.

Central Milton Keynes Rather too densely packed racks.

Milton Keynes Magistrates Court Among the signs breaking up this clean architecture are one asking to not leave bikes, one about cctv and one pointing to the disabled access.

Central Milton Keynes

Central Milton Keynes the sign screams NO CYCLING ON FOOTWAY but this is a cycleway - and that is why they have not used a NO CYCLING sign. Blue signs are advisory, not compulsory, and I view it as an abuse of that principle that ... [more]

The racks outside the library here look like they were an attempt to provide easy secure locking of bikes - provided you had a one pound coin. None of the racks had any keys in them when I visited on a Saturday afternoon. It is not very cle ... [more]

Central Milton Keynes Bollards, presumably introduced to stop this access to residences from being blocked by motor vehicles.

Central Milton Keynes The note attached to the bike reads: "Someone tried to steal your bike and the Police arrested them. Please contact the Polic on 101 phone number and quote 'URN1712' CF 13/02/2015. Thank you (and then a Police Co ... [more]

Central Milton Keynes The wonky sign reads: NO CYCLING ON FOOTWAY Petty pathetic signage. If cycling really were prohibited then a No Cycling sign should have been used. These blue signs contribute to division between walkers and ... [more]

Central Milton Keynes full motor vehicle storage areas, but largely empty cycle parking. Perhaps cyclists have got better things to do on a shopping day?

Central Milton Keynes This was locked, and inside there's a thick avenue of leaves.

Central Milton Keynes

Central Milton Keynes The car storage payment meters have been placed not quite inline with the existing lamp posts causing significant loss of remaining width of the footway / cycleway.

Central Milton Keynes Double yellow lines are fairly unusual as the whole place is a vast car storage area. They don't stick well to the blockwork.

Central Milton Keynes The car storage payment meters have been placed not quite inline with the existing lamp posts causing significant loss of remaining width of the footway / cycleway.

Central Milton Keynes I think this is the red zone motor vehicle storage area - full on a Saturday afternoon.

Central Milton Keynes - isn't this awful? And not just the random capitalization!

The vicious persecution of Milton Keynes's only remaining cyclist continues!

Cycleway crosses road on a raised table.

The decaying redway system in Milton Keynes.

Redway blocked by a tight chicane. The alternative here is to have a raised table so that the footway is not angled down and motor vehicles slow down.

Trading estate with a cycle shop, outdoor shop and fitness centre and no cycle facilities

Local industrial estate with no cycle parking facilities

Complete lack of cycle facilities at this recently built local shopping centre, even though a cycle path runs past on the opposite side of the road

Millers Way is a 60mph Road and the T junction with McConnell Drive is very wide. Cyclists have to negotiate 3 lanes of traffic and the vision splay is poorly managed

Really, what is the point of all this nonsense? Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes - more misinformation as a CYCLISTS DISMOUNT sign is used on that lamppost rather than a no-cycling. See #47932.

Milton Keynes Central railway station.

Good selection of cycle lockers near Milton Keynes Central station - added as an after thought in this ultra-designed part of town.

A familiar situation with cycle lockers - no one looks after them properly and eventually they can't remember who has what locker or how to get hold of them, hence these shabby notices.

More double decker cycle parking on what the flag poles mark as a once vast empty windswept piazza in front of Milton Keynes Central railway station. No doubt some architects are sobbing at the clutterification of their once minimalistic co ... [more]

Good quality cycle underpass.

Disappointing to see the appearance of the NO CYCLING ON FOOTWAY signs which are a lie, see #47932

Redway in Central Milton Keynes

Underpass of Silbury Boulevard.

This was at one point a Redway alongside the Central Milton Keynes shopping centre but now appears to be compromised. Notice the sign which reads: NO CYCLING ON FOOTWAY that's a lie. Its a lie because if there really was no cycling ... [more]

Green sign explaining Redway network.

Cycle parking near the entrance to the shopping centre in Milton Keynes.

This former dual carriageway has been narrowed to a single lane here and is no longer a through route for general traffic. It is used for bus circulation. The miserable sign is proof that pedestrians should have priority here.

Ash trees at Kiln Farm - what will happen to them now that the Chalara fraxinea fungus, which has killed 90% of ash trees in Denmark and has been found in East Anglia. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-20107186

Unmarked but presumably shared-use path to Bletchley station, past the entry to Bletchley Park (there's a less good path on the other side of the road).

Unsigned path opposite Bletchley station - it's not even on OpenCycle Map.

Sizeable cycle shed and double-deck car park at Bletchley station

Stepped side access to Bletchley station

Little-used cycle parking at the Brunel Centre, Bletchley (but surely Brunel had nothing to do with the London & Birmingham Railway?)

Bletchley bus station left, car parking right, plenty of space but no cycle parking.

The Milton Keynes redway system. The tarmac surface a little further up from here had split longitudinally - so beware if you have thin tyres.

Chicane on the Milton Keynes redway system - dunno why the yellow posts that are normally used have been taken away here. See #154205.
