    East Parade/Haywra Crescent.

    The cycle lane uphill is a bodge-job and finishes in ‘homemade’ and unsatisfactory arrangements at the Odeon roundabout.

    Downhill, there’s just one short section of painted advisory cycle lane which gives no protection, and even makes it more dangerous for people on bikes by putting them in the wrong road position (depending on where they are going at the junction).

    The ride along Skipton Road to Empress roundabout and turn right along Knaresborough Road by the Stray is obviously full of hazards for a cyclist. Surely something could be done to create a safe cycle path along Mornington Crescent, Regent Parade and Park Parade with rights of way for cyclists at the different road crossings to make this much safer for cyclists.
    This would also link up better with routes to the Greenway
