This needs to be opened up for cycling as well as pedestrians.

Three steps on this potential cut-through in Porthleven

Pointless barriers on this link to new housing

Not much room for the bus stop and the shared-use route opposite the Royal Cornwall Hospital

Footpath to the A390 - no problem, there's a proper cycleway behind the camera

No connection to Bramble Lane

Two trees down overnight on the National Trust's Tremayne Woods property.

To change platforms at Truro (eg to go from Falmouth to Plymouth or London) cyclists are told to go out through the barrier, across the level crossing and back through another barrier (their tickets won't work so they'll have to use the vid ... [more]

Steps on the direct route down to the centre of Fowey

Steps between Church Avenue, Fowey (a handy traffic-free route) and Lostwithiel St.

Barriers on cut-through in Newquay

Barriers on cut-through in Newquay

Link needed from the Portreath Branchline Trail to this side of the new Kerrier Way

Dropped kerb needed here for access to the Heartlands visitor attraction, Camborne

Amazing - the only access to the shared-use footway at the A30 roundabout is through McDonald's. I wonder who funded it?

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

Barriers and crossing on potentially useful route to central Penzance

Barriers and crossing on potentially useful route to central Penzance

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

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.

Bridleway - supposedly

This should be the start of a riverside cycle route to the footbridge and Wadebridge

Barriers on route to Priory Park, Bodmin

Pointless obstacles

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

Better access through this park to Humphrey Davy School would be helpful.

Flooded access to the coastal route east of Penzance.

Stepped bridge to the coastal route east of Penzance.

There's a gap leading on to the footway to the route, but the barrier should be removed.

The barrier indicates that this is not much of a cycle route.

Useful route into Helston town centre with less useful barriers

Steps on what could be a traffic-free section of NCN route 3.

Awkward patch on what could be NCN route 3 from Penzance to Newlyn.

Whoops - steps at the end of what should be a lovely traffic-free section of NCN3 along the promenade in Penzance.

Cycle parking obstructed by a motorbike and a car left in the turning area. (Of course a pedant might assume that cycle parking was banned too.)

St Guron's Way, Bodmin - the dropped kerb several metres away from where it's needed!

Railway trail leading to the King George V Memorial Walk (NCN route 3), Hayle - dropped kerb needed

Dropped kerb needed at this bridge over the A30.

New handrails but no cycle gutters (and no lift) - so if you're changing with a bike from Falmouth towards Plymouth and upcountry you have to go out through the ticket barriers, over the level crossing and back through barriers again.

Start of 'cycle' route from Truro station - with steps at either end of the bridge. It would be quite possible to engineer a route via the station level crossing. And why is the sign one-sided?

Barriers and no dropped kerb approaching what should be a very useful crossing of the A30.

Cycle-hostile access to the new Sainsburys (which replaced the heliport).

Cycle-hostile entry to Tesco supermarket, Penzance

No need for steps blocking this link

A cattle grid across the road. A journey on an open top double decker bus from Sennen Cove to St. Ives.

As usual, the road (NCN route 3) is not actually closed to cyclists.

This location was set by synchronization with the track at location #18657. This horrible barrier creates an annoying an rather unnecessary hazard for those with buggies or wheelchairs, or just carrying stuff.
