With cyclists able to get through many road closures, @OxfordshireCC has now adapted its signs to show when this is permitted and possible. @cycloxoxford @CUKOxfordshire @activetravelcaf @RantyHighwayman

North Oxford corridor The never-ending roadworks north of Oxford have a name and a purpose, it seems.

Despite the sign, the cycle lane does seem to continue under the railway bridge (inbound only).

Give Way to Cyclist [singular?] on a narrow bridge, Oxford

Ready to go from 28 Feb 2022 - Britain's first Zero Emissions Zone, in a small area of central Oxford. Hopefully the other signs restricting cycle use will have been removed.

No Cycling (and no dropped kerb) on Cuckoo Lane, Headington

Link from Walton Well Road to the rear of Oxford station - this is the only reference to the gates being closed at night.

I've no idea what this sign refers to - the cycle route certainly continues along the Botley Road.

No Cycling sign on Lower Fisher Row (riverside footpath), Oxford

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway sign on NCN route 51, Oxford

No Cycles Whether Ridden or Pushed at this entrance to the Parks, Oxford

No cycling on the footway

Cyclists Dismount sign on this footpath near the Oxford Canal

The Cyclists Dismount sign is quite a way down this footpath.

Clever gadget on the cycle bridge to Oxford station

No Cycles sign, next to the hotel's own advertising bike...

I suppose the students will have left Oxford but it's still pretty poor that a Christmas market can cause cycle parking to be removed.

Marston path Cyclepath cattle grid closeup, showing good pedestrian route to left. Do you think "cyclists dismount" is the correct advisory sign here?

University Parks, No Cycles whether ridden or not

University Parks: No cycles - Whether ridden or not

First Great Western asks cyclists to be on the platform ten minutes before departure time - which makes some sense in the case of High Speed Trains originating here, but none for the vast majority of services - trains from elsewhere calling … [more]

Route to Oxford station narrowed by building work

'Low Headroom' sign where the Oxford canal path passes under the railway

'Give Way' lines on the cycle lane for cars going in and out of Magdalen College; no cycling on the footway.

That's a "No Motor Vehicles" sign, but even though that sign explicitly includes motorcycles as being banned, they still frequently take this short-cut.

No Motor Vehicles. Note that there's no exceptions for access/taxis/council vehicles or police cars, and yet all these can often be seen passing this sign. Confusingly the loading restriction applies to the High (where you are if you can … [more]

No motor vehicles except access, with another sign restricting loading - but I'm not sure what the loading restriction applies to, because at the other end of this section is another sign with different hours.

Vehicles over 5m long banned during the daytime, but the sign has to go the other way around and is confusing.

The "CYCLISTS DISMOUNT" sign was removed after earlier complaints, but has reappeared. Presumably due to rightful complaints about pavement cyclists, but due to the ambiguous positioning partially on the highway, some drivers are assuming … [more]

CYCLISTS DISMOUNT sign used at the 2011 Iffley Road (Oxford) roadworks, against the advice in DfT Traffic Advisory Leaflet 15/99: "Where access is permitted for motor vehicles, "Cyclist Dismount" signs should not be used. The hazards to … [more]

No cycles or cycling allowed in the park.

No cycles or cycling allowed in the park.

Bicycles strictly forbidden

No Bicycles, either wheeled or ridden

I feel welcome already. It's otherwise a signed cycle route. Perhaps it would be safer to take the main road?

Entrance to the (useful, paved, continuous, lit) bridleway across the North end of Sandhills is approached by a short bit of pavement and wiggle-barriered off slightly from the turning circle at the end of Burdell Ave. That's fine, but why … [more]

The High, Oxford, closed except to buses, bikes and taxis from 7.30am to 6.30pm.

Sign warning pedestrians of cycleway.

Retro-style finger signs leading pedestrians off the cycleway and into The Parks.

Broad Street, Oxford, closed to motor vehicles - lots of room for bike racks, though more are needed.

No right turn except cycles, taxis and authorised vehicles (I think)
