Is this the biggest cyclists dismount sign in Greater Manchester?
You can see clearly that the priority is the shopping...
The Roadworks have started outside MUFC.
The first sign of problems for bikes going north is the line of cones in the cycle lane.
Then you see the real damage...
The path is wider than many Sustrans Railway paths, but they still stick barriers across to make it inconvenient for everyone.
With a second set at the other end.
Then they are digging up the road beyond.
And the final problem is that the set of traffic lights onto Trafford Wharf Road stay at red untill a car triggers them. A bike doesn't seem to contain enough steel, so you end up waiting bloody ages because they've got rid of most of the traffic!
