Very short cycle lane just to lead cyclists off the road.

Not a lot of cycle parking in central Wakefield

Just 50m of cycle contraflow needed here (and the left-turn sign seems to have been turned around).

Bridge from the car park to The Hepworth, Wakefield - there's a Cyclists Dismount sign.

Road closure, Wakefield

Road closure ahead - so of course there should be an Except Cyclists plate on the sign.

Route beside the Calder

On this side of the roundabout there's a Cyclists Dismount sign, on the other side is an End of Route sign - can't anyone think these things through consistently?

Route sign on shared-use route beside the A636 into Wakefield

Cycle route crossing side road on the way into Wakefield

This is definitely not the end of the cycle route, but the people who put these signs up don't seem to care.

Shared-use path beside the A636 into Wakefield

Link from shared-use path to the quiet route up to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Shared-use by the A636 into Wakefield

It may not look like it in the rush hour, but this is the start of the quiet route up to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

View to Wakefield on nice quiet backroad down from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Link to the bridleway down the western edge of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Ideally this would allow cyclists to get off the A637 and reach the Yorkshire Sculpture Park through the country park (with its Henry Moores).

Cycle parking at a café at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park - there are similar stands at the main information centre which I used but forgot to photograph. But it's basically a destination for those who come by car and bus.

Cycle space on a Class 144 Pacer train on a Northern Rail local service.

A shared use pavement transitions to a half width cycle lane via a post, an angled dropped kerb and a grating carefully angled to catch cycle wheels. Are Wakefield Council actively trying to kill cyclists?

Scrubbed out cycle lanes on both sides of the road to allow car parking. And busy entrance/exit to Wakefield council site. Pushes us out into traffic
