Cycle parking at Queen Street in Bingley.

A toucan crossing across Bingley Main Street. A lane leads through to the railway station from here.

A sign for some cycle parking, although I couldn't see any outside the station where the sign is pointing. However, there is cycle parking inside the station.

No Vehicles and Cyclists Dismount on Foundry Hill leading to a toucan crossing across Main Street (at #110745). There were no such signs at the other end of the lane. A dropped kerb could also be provided.

Cycle parking on Bingley Main Street.

Cycle parking in the Lidl car park. Perhaps a little close to the kerb and at risk of bikes parked there being hit by opening car doors.

The path from Bingley station to Ferncliffe Road and beyond to the Airedale Greenway passes the Aldi car park.

The path to Bingley station crosses the entrance to the Aldi car park.

The path from the Waterloo Road car park ends at the Aldi car park, but another path connects across to Ferncliffe Road. Hazard tactiles have been used in place of cycleway tactiles.

The line-segregated path ends and the cycle route to the station continues through the Waterloo Road car park.

A dropped kerb at the end of the Waterloo Road car park for accessing the railway station and the cycle parking there at #110734. The path also continues to a flight of steps up to the Park Road bridge.

A route sign for the Airedale Greenway outside Bingley station.

A view over the junction of Valley Road and Canal Road, with the NCN66 cycle track running through.

Approaching the end of the segregated cycle track from Valley Road.

A complex junction of Canal Road, Valley Road, Balme Street and the goods ramp from the Broadway shopping centre. The traffic signals seemed to be quite responsive to the limited traffic I saw at the time.

The cycle crossing across the junction of Canal Road, Valley Road and Balme Street.

Junction of Valley Road and Canal Road.

The cycle track on Valley Road approaching Bradford city centre.

A segregated cycle track on Valley Road. A bit surprising that half-battered kerbs have been used rather than the splayed ones used nearby on CS1 at #89793.

A parallel cycle/zebra crossing across Holdsworth Street.

A segregated cycle track on Valley Road, and a connection through to the end of Leeming Street.

A route sign for NCN66 on the road away from Forster Square station.

An unusual rectangular sign for a line-segregated footway, stuck in the middle of said footway. The markings ahead go onto the (eastbound) carriageway, while the sign ahead has cycles on the opposite side to the pedestrians compared to this ... [more]

An unusual rectangular sign depicting a line-segregated footway.

Cyclists to join the triple lane carriageway of Wakefield Road.

Two more crossings to get to Wakefield Road... #110662

An unusual sign for a line-segregated footway. The cycle route crosses four crossings to get to Wakefield Road... #110661 Some of the toucan crossings do not have call boxes on both the left and right hand sides of the crossing.

No cycling down the stairs, or elsewhere in the privately managed facility.

The cycle lane that started in #110656 comes to an end, and the route to Wakefield Road (to the right) goes onto the footway to cross with the pedestrians... #110660

A road with 4 then 5 driving lanes and a painted cycle lane, with an overhead gantry sign. Must be suitable for cycling... #110658

A cycle sign reading "Wakefield Road (use nearside lane)". Let's have a look... #110656

A split toucan crossing across Bridge Street, with a narrow caged central island. But let's look at that blue sign up ahead... #110652

A bus gate ahead on Bridge Street.

Bike & Go bikes awaiting their final hires at Bradford Interchange station.

No Cycling into the bus station, via the bus entrance.

Cycle parking inside Bradford Interchange, with an inclusive cycling mural. There is more cycle parking in the railway station upstairs.

Information and map on Bridge Street outside Bradford Interchange, and many people crossing the road as they please.

Bus gate on Market Street.

'No Entry' and 'Recommended Route for Cycles' at Hustlergate. Which is it? I didn't notice any obvious signage for the NCN66 turn here.

A discontinuous cycle lane on Lower Kirkgate.

Cycle Superhighway sign on Lower Kirkgate.

The connection from the painted cycle lane to the parallel zebra crossing over to the segregated cycle track on Valley Road.

Cycling through Centenary Square.

Non-bus gate traffic to U-turn.

A route sign for NCN66 on Nelson Street. The road ahead leads to a bus gate at #110421.

Despite the crossing at #110453 being a toucan crossing, the next crossing encountered is just a pedestrian crossing. Nelson Street is straight ahead and the first section of footway is shared-use.

The path from the Manchester Road crossing at #110453 takes a diagonal route across the wide central reservation of Croft Street, across to Nelson Street.

Cycle directions for the sliplane shown in #110470 included in a large motoring sign.

A short cycle lane for anyone leaving the dual carriageway in favour of the shared footway and the toucan crossing ahead.

A short piece of cycle lane, with a bus stop unusually in the middle of the junction, on Godwin Street.

A route sign for NCN66 and other destinations at Prince's Way.

Toucan crossing across Prince's Way, with high-level and low-level near-side signals, and also far-side signals.

NCN66 at Centenary Square, heading towards Prince's Way.

NCN66 for permit holders only?

The view of Market Street from Centenary Square. The opposite view to #110613.

The shared footway takes people away from Manchester Road and over to Nelson Street, whether they want that or not. It seems some people ride across the grass so presumably they wish to stay with Manchester Road.

A van driver pulled over the toucan crossing when he had a green light, but inevitably it turned red before the junction ahead cleared, leaving him blocking the crossing for users.

A continuation of bus priority from the end of the Manchester Road guided busway through the Senior Way junction.

A toucan crossing across the end of the Manchester Road guided busway in Bradford.

NCN66 alongside Manchester Road. On the right, a bus lane to allow buses from the guided busway to overtake the traffic congestion, seen in #110452.

NCN66 alongside A641 Manchester Road dual carriageway. The lamppost needn't be so in the way.

A sign for NCN66 pointing in a different direction to the blue Sustrans arrow sticker.

NCN66 alongside Manchester Road in Bradford.

NCN66 crossing Prince's Way on a split toucan crossing.

Cycle parking outside the Alhambra Theatre.

Cycle parking outside the Bradford Ice Arena, but quite a lot of busy road to negotiate.

Contraflow cycling on Morley Street, a quiet road alongside the Alhambra Theatre.

This is perhaps not how the Dutch would approach a crossing of a main dual carriageway. Give Way to the traffic island?

A bus gate on Nelson Street approaching Hall Ings, and a cycle lane for getting to the toucan crossing across to Channing Way.

A route sign for NCN66 at Channing Way.

A route sign for NCN66 at a split toucan crossing across Hall Ings.
