Horrible: masterpiece of inaccessibility stepped ramp.

NCN810 with cycle gaps at a road plug.

Grim subway under a flyover in Walton, Liverpool.

Descent into a grim subway - the barrier arrangement here creates some visibility at an otherwise blind turn into the tunnel.

Racks and fire door guards.

No dropped kerbs at the end of this terraced street.

Goodison Park at the end of this terraced street.

Winslow Street - no dropped kerbs

Racks outside Liverpool football club's Anfield stadium.

No gaps for cycling in many of these side street plugs.

My preferred way of surveying for OpenStreetMap now is a handlebar mounted ‘phone running the Mapillary app.

Signage! It’s very intermittent 😳

Between the centre and the football grounds.

A cycle route sign led me to this 😳

Tate Liverpool

Super lamb bananas from where sheep were exported and bananas came back. Looking across to Birkenhead.

NCN56

Liverhenge 🤣

Cyclists crossing big junction.

Hire bikes

Useful signage that has distance.

Nice to have a link through but I had to dismount.

The NCN56 cycleway is basically a scantily signed footway that crosses the road here.

An ad-hoc ramp has been concreted onto these two steps.

Statues of the fab four - a very popular spot for selfies. https://www.winetravelandsong.com/2017/06/06/beatles-statue-liverpool/

The proximity of trunk roads and flyovers already contribute to a hostile road environment and this is just pathetic.

Liverpool cycle hire station at Otterspool Promanade, Liverpool Waterfront

I bet this was expensive. And look, nobody's even using it. Time to rip up this dual carriageway motor superhighway. https://t.co/mOSmSOzgAG

The Water Street 2-way cycle track ends with a left turn into Covent Garden, which leads through to Chapel Street.

The Water Street 2-way cycle track.

A facility has been provided to allow cyclists to head straight up Water Street for a bit, to avoid the gyratory at Chapel Street.

This is not a bike - from an exhibition at Tate Liverpool. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tate_Liverpool

Cobbles or slabs to choose from on NCN 56.

This section of single lane road is controlled by traffic signals. NCN 56 is on the footway.

Cycle parking, some of it blocked by barriers, outside the Liverpool Arena & Convention Centre, next to NCN56.

This is NCN56, on a site that has been totally rebuilt in recent years. Everything here could have been done differently.

This is NCN 56.

Bad, just bad!

Citybike hire docking station at the University of Liverpool

Although there are lots of cycle parking stands, there are still bikes locked to railings, and there's room for more stands.

The cyclist in #62731 starts away once the cycle signals have returned to red and signals for motor vehicles have changed to green.

A cyclist (the only Citybike hire bike rider I saw all day) watching the wrong signal and ignoring the cycle signals he's stopped beneath (see #62732).

'No Through Road except cycles' in Myrtle Street

A mandatory cycle lane on Myrtle Street, approaching segregated traffic signals. Traffic is busier on the other side of the junction, but no cycle facilities have been provided for the opposite direction.

The Myrtle Street cycle track, looking towards the university and city centre.

Myrtle Street continues as a cycle track and footway.
