145733Photo #145733Is this a cycle path? Nice idea to have a path here but the surface is so poor it is unrideable even on a mountain bike. It also ends part way up the hill on a blind bend. Could be potentially be really useful.Cycleway:

136163Photo #136163There is no cycle lane on the Thornbury Ring Road (Midland Way and Moreton Way) and the speed limit is too high for a residential area, currently 40mph. There are also parking spaces on Midland Way which make it dangerous for cyclists when large lorries are stopping and starting to give way to oncoming traffic. Solution: eliminate parking on Midland Way. Use grass verge to create cycle lanesCycleway:
Problem

135005Photo #135005Two short sections of dual carriageway make it dangerous for cyclist as traffic is travelling at high speeds. Solution: make single lanes and allocate space for cyclists in both directions. This would form part of a commuter route from Thornbury to AlmondsburyCycleway:

133319Photo #133319The footpath is too narrow and there are no safe crossings. The cars come through here fairly fast and so you cannot safely walk into the road to keep to social distancing. Better crossings onto Fisher Road to access green space would be helpful!Track:
