How does that work? Cycle parking without stands...

Pop-up lane closure following the closure of Market Jew St, Penzance, to private vehicles

Misleading sign - the only cyclists who would rejoin the carriageway are those who want to stay on the A3047 Treleigh bypass for some reason - most will obviously keep left to go through the village.

Link to the Cardew Industrial Estate, Redruth

Route signs and toucan crossing at the junction of routes by the A3047 and through the Cardew Industrial Estate

No Cycling, basically.

Narrow overgrown bridleway - virtually useless for cycling (although it would be an alternative to the A394).

Cycle parking hidden at the back of the car park.

Traffic calming with cycle bypass, Falmouth

Modal filter on a link to the cycleway under the railway at Dobwalls (on the old road, replaced by the new bypass).

Shared-use path by the A394, Helston

Three cycle stands at the foot of Castle Hill, Helston

The old road is actually still viable for cyclists as an alternative to slogging up the hill on the A394.

It's not a cycle route, but the bridge from Lidl to the boating lake in Helston keeps cyclists off the A394 for a little bit more.

Segregated route from the boating lake, Helston
