54692Photo #54692Oxford's Marston meadows' cycle path. The cattle grid is accompanied by a pedestrian gate, but for some reason, instead of a sign advising pedestrians to use the path, rather than the cattle grid, there's one suggesting the opposite! If there's a more dangerous way to cross a cattle grid than tiptoeing while pushing a student bike, I'd like to see it.Route sign:

31599Photo #31599The "CYCLISTS DISMOUNT" sign was removed after earlier complaints, but has reappeared.

"Cyclist Dismount" signs should not be used. The hazards to cyclists at roadworks are rarely great enough to justify this measure. In any case, cyclists are likely to ignore such instructions."
