End of Cycle Route sign in a future development

Shared-use route supposedly ending at the crossing - but in fact it continues to Church Walk

.. but what is this nonsense? (see #182651) - Cyclists Dismount sign where cars are obviously free to move around - on the way to new cycle parking in a car park just off Causewayhead, Penzance. (And why so far above the ground?)

NCN route 3 continues ahead, cyclists turning right to Penzance station are supposed to dismount to cross a car park.

No Cycling on this section of the Cornish coastal path owned by the National Trust

Start of byway - I haven't tested it, but cyclists should be able to get through to the Helford River at the head of Porth Navas Creek.

Cyclists give way to everyone - on the bridleway constructed by the National Trust between Porthleven and the Penrose Estate

The coast road has totally washed away, so there's only a footpath ahead - or turn left for the cycle route to Loe Bar

One of many cut-throughs in this area of Truro

Private road, one of many cut-throughs in this area of Truro

Start of closed road past Penair School, Truro

Start of Grenna Lane, with sign (barely visible) warning of cyclists on the Cornish Coast-to-Coast Trail

Annoying Cyclists Dismount sign where the Cornish Coast-to-Coast route crosses the A30

Cyclists Dismount sign on what is shown on OpenCycleMap as a cycle route east from the Chacewater car park

Dangerous Crossing. No, really, that's the name of the place - just a normal staggered crossing of what was once the main road from Truro to Redruth.

No Motor Vehicles except for access - potentially useful for cyclists towards Mylor.

NO - cyclists should be given a ramp onto the carriageway, with clear warning signs for motorists.

The very narrow quiet lanes northwest of Truro have been closed to motor vehicles except for access - cue the familiar complaints about war on motorists etc.

NCN route 3 on the former Newham railway branch, Truro - sign for pedestrians to keep right (I think)

No Cycling sign on this footpath leading to NCN route 3 in Carnon Downs

Cyclists not welcome on this farm - this would be a good route from Devoran to Carnon Downs and Truro

Warning sign at the junction of NCN route 3, the Cornish Coast-to-Coast route and a road.

Warning of cyclists on NCN route 3 ahead

I'm not sure whether this really meant No traffic at all except to the Covid-19 vaccination site (now closed).

Start of permissive route through the former United Mines

Slalom and No Motorbikes sign on NCN route 3

No Motorcycling sign on MTB tracks at the former Wheal Maid mine

Information sign on NCN route 3, Wheal Maid

Warnings of cyclists, approaching a major junction on Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail, NCN route 3

Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail, NCN route 3, heading south from Bike Chain Bissoe

Information panel under the Carnon Viaduct on Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail

Cyclists Dismount sign at the entry to the Penryn University Campus from the west

Buses and bikes only on a cut-off section of the A39 - and a cycle route sign to Falmouth, presumably via the byway to Perranwell Station.

Apparently an excellent new rental business in Penzance

Misleading sign - the only cyclists who would rejoin the carriageway are those who want to stay on the A3047 Treleigh bypass for some reason - most will obviously keep left to go through the village.

End of shared-use cycleway (with a useful cut-through from the right as well)

No Cycling, basically.

No unauthorised bike trails!

Cornwall's first mass vaccination centre for Covid-19 is in the middle of nowhere (Stithians Fairground) so cars are pretty much vital.

End of shared-use route from the A30 interchange towards Camborne

Cyclists Dismount signs on the bridge over the A30, Camborne - pointless, as the width doesn't change.

Start of paved route to the A30 underpass and Camborne - many people ignore the request and walk on the edge of the field.

Worrying road closure signs - in fact it refers to a side road, the main route to St Keverne was open.

The dead-end road is narrowed to a single lane here, but they still felt it necessary to put up Cyclists Dismount signs.

The promenade in Penzance is being improved - mainly due to storm damage, but also because the Tour of Britain is due to start here on 6 Sept 2020

Private - No Access by the main route through Tehidy Country Park

The concrete bridleway ends just short of the South West Coast Path

Cornwall Council wanted to close this road to motor vehicles but were forced to repair it - but it's restricted and hardly any cars use it.

Not a real dead end, and the one-way section could easily be two-way for cycling.

Emd of Route signs on roads entering the Royal Cornwall Hospital

The End of Route sign applies only to the ramp to the trading estate - and why, anyway?

No right turn to the Royal Cornwall Hospital except local buses and cycles - but the marking on the road surface is buses only, and I don't know how many cyclists would want move across two lanes of motor traffic here.

Clearly marked as a footpath only, who knows why cycles aren't welcome?

Clearly marked as a footpath only, who knows why cycles aren't welcome?

End of shared-use section of footway entering the Royal Cornwall Hospital

Supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north.

New sign at the start of NCN route 3 (The Cornish Way) - 'The National Cycle Network starts and finishes here!'

One-way, no motor vehicles except for access - it would be nice if contraflow cycling could be permitted here.

At last the roadworks (with Cyclists Dismount and go somewhere unspecified signs) on the A30 have finished and there's a new rail/bus interchange - cyclists are told to dismount to cross to the station, and there's no indication at all that ... [more]

Skidden Hill (ie skidding...) - now one-way, but it would be nice if cyclists could go down this way to central St Ives.

Very small No Cycling sign on the National Trust's Trevose Head property - but you'd be unlikely to get this far with a bike anyway.

No Cycling on the footpath across St Enodoc Golf Club

I've no idea why there's a cycle symbol on the end door - bikes would never be loaded that way.

Cyclists seem to be at the bottom of the hierarchy on the National Trust's Penrose Estate

The old road is actually still viable for cyclists as an alternative to slogging up the hill on the A394

'use bike racks provided'... I couldn't see any.

The Pedestrian Zone sign seems bizarre, but the road to the right would be traffic-free if the rising bollards were working.

If only Great Western Railway would concentrate on running trains on time rather than putting up silly No Bicycles signs etc.

Ferry fares have gone up! But it still doesn't cost too much to take a bike.

St Ives - closed to motor vehicles for most of the day

New gate and No Cycling sign on the Cornish coastal path

No Cycling on Bodmin Moor from the Rough Tor car park.

End of Route sign - actually it runs through the layby to the edge of Lelant village

Pedestrian sign to the Penzance Park & Ride (not yet open)

Unenforceable nonsense in Mevagissey - cars are allowed to reach the parking, but cycling isn't allowed?

Beware Cyclists sign on the A30 approaching the very un-cycle friendly Hayle roundabout - but there's a footbridge in the middle distance which could be adapted for cyclists.

Bikes, buses and taxis only eastbound in central Penzance

Old-fashioned No Cycling sign, Penzance

No Cycling in Penlee Park, Penzance

Potentially useful cut-through to central Penzance - and less useful 'No Motor Vehicles Except for Access' to the left which doesn't actually go anywhere.

This should actually be a through route for cyclists on a bridleway.

You can drive but not cycle? Absurd.

Despite the Sustrans milepost and the No Motorised vehicles sign, this is NOT NCN route 3

Cyclists Dismount sign on NCN route 3 in Truro

No provision for cycles on this link to Truro bus station and NCN route 3

Cyclists Dismount sign on NCN route 3

A new one-way system with a cycleway under the St Ives railway branch (replacing a two-way road) has caused some controversy.

Mixed messages - end of a short stretch of shared-use footway provided by housing developers

Arriving by ferry at the low-tide steps you can't ride your bike in to Padstow

This riverside track could be a useful link

Cyclists Dismount sign on the footbridge, Wadebridge - the only alternative to the road bridge. What shame they didn't build it wide enough!

Cyclists Give Way to Pedestrians - if you can find this route, beyond Wadebridge's No Cycling car park, it's a good link to NCN route 32 (the Camel Trail)

No Cycling sign in a car park on what should be the obvious link to a riverside extension of NCN route 32 (the Camel Trail)

Cyclists Give Way to Pedestrians - if you can find this route, beyond Wadebridge's No Cycling car park, it's a good link to NCN route 32 (the Camel Trail)

No Cycling on a car park access road? Ridiculously negative attitude in Wadebridge, where this would be the obvious link to a riverside extension of the Camel Trail.

Pedestrianisation (no cycling) on Wadebridge's main street

Why does British traffic engineering require so many negative 'End of Cycle Route' signs? This is wrong anyway, just before a toucan crossing and a cycle link to the right.

I presume the shared-use sign refers to the link from the crossing to the footbridge?
