138251Photo #138251Difficulty in crossing road after roundabout due to poor sight lines and high vehicle speeds.

96733Photo #96733Outside Asda - one of the most popular and largest stores in the area, provides nowhere for bikes to park. There are no railings to attach bikes which makes it impossible to cycle here without leaving bike a 10 minute walk out of the store and through the rest of the center. Suggested area would not obstruct pedestrians or cars.Cycle parking:
Problem

96732Photo #96732Bikes get chained to railing here anyway as only other bike parking nearby is outside sainsburys, which isn't always convenient. Bikes being chained to the railings here often obstruct one of the entrances, and there is a perfectly sized area out of the way of pedestrians at the opposite side of the path which would be perfect for a bike stand.Cycle parking:

62817Photo #62817Ridiculous situation on NCN1 where cyclists are expected to pass through this A-frame, and then another at the end of the path. While there's a clear road to the left. A-frames are justified as deterring motorbikes and cars - but they'll just use the path to the left, which is *closer* to nearby bungalows. Bonkers.Obstruction:
