It's that time of year again, where parts of the city are blocked off for a conference, and cycling takes a very low priority. After all, do you see delegates turning up by bike? Of course not, their bikes would be treated as a security risk....
Here in Lower Mosely Street the steel fencing closes the pavement, so the cycle track, designed to give a safer crossing of the tram tracks has been closed.
The track on the other side of the road has been turned into a pavement, complete with new tarmac to make a drop kerb!
This is the start of the cycle route down Windmill Street.
