Narrow path for cyclists and pedestrians, busy with dog walkers, no space to pass safely.

A cycle way all the way into Liverpool would be great as it appears for a bit but is not the whole way and the road is too busy but the pavements are not great to cycle on either

Ince woods is not wide enough for cycling. Need a designated cycle path from Formby by pass through to Thornton/ Crosby

To narrow for safe distancing and to pass safely with other cyclists and pedestrians

Narrow for cyclists and walkers

Stanley Road could do with cycle lanes to help improve the route into Liverpool.

Almost impossible to cross this 60mph dual carriageway some sort of crossing required

Cyclists should be able to cycle down Chapel Street - at present this is illegal and so cyclists are forced onto the surrounding and often dangerous roads.

Dedicated cycle lane is needed along Scarisbrick New Road as many cyclists use this route to the town centre and KGB college, Hospital, etc.

Bus stop is narrow, only half a bus fits in when stopping and thus making it dangerous to overtake parked buses, when their stopped there, widen bus stop

Kerb line in the road has a nib as two lanes pass, of which are narrow, causing cars to wander from the outside lane to the inside or when in the inside to virtually on the kerb line, cutting up cyclists. Smooth out the kerb line 'bend'

This cycle path is very overgrown. Two way cycling is impossible

Hightown to Formby path too narrow To allow for distancing

The new lane markings are dangerous for cyclists, when approaching the junction from lydiate lane. Due to the formation of a left turn only lane, cyclist are pushed in the centre of the road to go straight ahead (towards Maghull) you don't ... [more]

Move the cycle path off the seawall and take some of the massive of pavement for a properly cycle path near the road. Current path is used by pedestrians and is regularly blocked by chairs etc while also covered in sand.

The cycleway is barely wide enough for two bikes as it is, one side is overgrown and the other is mainly loose stone. Very easy to clash handlebars with bikes going opposite way. But it's also used by pedestrians, widen the whole thing. ... [more]

Cycle track too narrow to overtake!

Narrow cycle track, but the rough bit to the side assists with passing. No use for overtaking though (see #54912).

Dusty path

Abrupt end of cycle track, just where motorists will be looking the other way. Narrow footway continues into Formby to the left.

Cycle track for fast cyclists, alongside A565! See also #54847

Cycle track alongside A565 See also #54848

A change in the path surface.

Sand on path not as bad as #54669

Sand overwhelming the path

A narrow path under bridge, with poor sightlines. Not an unusual problem with canal towpaths.

Canal path of variable quality on NCN62, at bridge narrowing

The NCN62 connection to the canal path is via a flight of steps

Southbound, the transition from cycle track to road is straightforward

A blind corner on NCN62 path at Aintree

Cycle path meets road at Aintree

A remarkably smooth and useful bit of path. Segregated by just a white line, pedestrians to the left and cyclists to the right. Not really wide enough for bidirectional use, but as good as it gets in the UK. Photo taken on Land's End to ... [more]
