Entry to the Penzance Park & Ride (not yet open)

Pedestrian sign to the Penzance Park & Ride (not yet open)

Double yellow lines on Penzance's main shopping street, ie parking for cars with disabled permits. Most traffic is uphill here with only buses, taxis and bikes going downhill.

Penzance's main street closed to traffic for Montol, the winter solstice festival - an exemption for bikes would have been nice.

Potentially useful cut-through to central Penzance - and less useful 'No Motor Vehicles Except for Access' to the left which doesn't actually go anywhere.

The missing link in the Penzance promenade route - a ramp is needed to replace the steps at the right.

Dropped kerbs at this crossing on the footway by the A30 towards Penzance.

This footway by the A30 needs improvement for shared use.

NCN route 3 turns right here

This should actually be a through route for cyclists on a bridleway.

Start of stretch of NCN route 3 parallel to the A394 but not connected to it.

Horses on NCN route 3 east of Marazion.

NCN route 3 turns left here. It's not clear which route is Unsuitable for Long Vehicles - probably both.

Cyclists on NCN route 3 should turn left here. No dropped kerb.

Cyclists on NCN route 3 towards Penzance have to cross the road to reach the new shared-use path.

End of a brief stretch of new shared-use path on NCN route 3 - cyclists towards Marazion have to cross the road here.

Site of the Mexico crossing to the coastal cycle route - closed by Network Rail due to deaths, but the Long Rock level crossing is close.

The shared-use path funded by Sainsbury goes as far as the entry to the new Sainsbury supermarket but no further - what would it have cost to extend it?

Dropped kerbs - but this could be improved for shared use.

Route past Penlee House art gallery - this could be opened up for cycling.

Wheelbender parking at the otherwise excellent Penlee House gallery in Penzance

Cycle parking at St John's Hall, Penzance - recently refurbished to house the library and other public services.

Two stands at the B&M store, Penzance (formerly B&Q).

There's room for a few cycle stands under the access ramp to the new Newlyn Filmhouse.

It'd be great to have direct access to the station here.

The route to Compostella - crossing the railway in Penzance.

Will these ever be repaired?

Toucan crossing to the car park and NCN route 3 (and what happens when cycle stands are under-utilised).

Commuting cyclists prefer the paved footpath to the busy A30 roundabout - why not put in a decent cycle bypass?

Abbey Slip, Penzance - more or less traffic-free

New, utterly rubbish, cycle parking in Penzance

Why does British traffic engineering require so many negative 'End of Cycle Route' signs? This is wrong anyway, just before a toucan crossing and a cycle link to the right.

Shared-use footway by the A30.

Narrow footway between two shared-use sections - is Cornwall Council tacitly suggesting people should cycle on this?

I presume the shared-use sign refers to the link from the crossing to the footbridge?

Coastal route from Penzance towards St Michael's Mount

Flooded access to the coastal route east of Penzance.

Stepped bridge to the coastal route east of Penzance.

Definitely not a joined-up route - a stepped bridge, very un-smart traffic lights (where you wait ages, then vehicles wait ages) then a barrier on the link to the north.

Lights for pedestrians and cyclists on this crossing to the (stepped) bridge to the coastal route east of Penzance.
