Blue plaque for John Boultbee Brooks, developer of the Brook's saddle.

Shared use cycleway at Queen’s Park, Hinckley.

Almey’s Lane, Earl Shilton. Three of them died at the battle of Waterloo.

Welcome to Earl Shilton, please drive carefully. Then there’s a mini roundabout and cyclists are directed onto the footway.

Station Road, Hinckley

Ford - be careful

I thought the covert CCTV warning was about cycling, but it is about dog poop.

This strange mix of shared use and no cycling on the same pole is still here at the end of 2018. See #28576.

The big black sign can light up to read: OVERNIGHT VEHICLE DIVERSION <------ USE A5

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council CYCLING & BALL GAMES PROHIBITED but as much car storage as you want.

Dr Bike is coming to Hinckley railway station on 24th August.

This is the only apparent way out for pedestrians, despite the alarming signage.

No golfing on Clarendon Park

A long faded no cycling sign

Clarendon Park

Death by mall.

Approaching Higham on the Hill.

The plaque reads: "Hinckley Town Centre Conservation Area Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council A borough to be proud of" Shame the building behind it, a former snooker hall has been in this boarded up delapidated state for years.

The black sign on these school gates reads: "Parking on Zig-Zags is selfish and dangerous" ... and it might have added in violation of Highway Code rule 191:

Lots of space for car parking - but no space apparently for cycling - yet the presence of the mean spirited no cycling sign here does suggest there is a desire to use this as a convenient cut through!

The sign on the right says "Pedestrians be aware of construction traffic" - which is of course the wrong way around!

I suppose this cycle road marking is a reminder to drivers that cyclists exist? I don't know its actual significance. Coventry Road, Hinckley.

A well worn out no cycling sign, probably the reason for no dropped kerb here.

The no cycling sign here demonstrates that there is a desire for cycling along here, but that the need has not been met. It should be easily possible to make this a cyclable route - if there was the will.

Loads of room here could make a really convenient cut-through that is cyclable. The "No Cycling" symbol is really a sign that there is a desire for this to be cyclable, and that there is failed permeability and planning.

This no cycling sign is probably one reason why this cut through has no dropped kerb.

Cycling prohibited on the shared use path on the Hinckley bypass (Normandy Way). Blue signs are only advisory so presumably the red cycling prohibited sign trumps the blue one for this section. Welcome to Leicestershire 2011 - yes to … [more]

"Please pass wide & slow" Its so sad that we have to spell this out these days.

It seems the funeral services in Hinckley are in 'stiff' competition - this one offers a 'no compromise' deal, and I couldn't believe the advertising I saw for another one in the local paper that read "We put the fun in funeral". I digress … [more]

No cycling in this park near the borough offices.

A map of the central area of Hinckley.

Semi-official panels - saying No Cycling. Rising bollards.

No cycling panels have been added to this 'pedestrian zone' in Castle Street, Hinckley. I don't know if they are legal, and its not clear from the signage here when they are in force. Comparing with #10622 from 2007 I notice the missing Z & … [more]

No cycling signs that have been added to the back of one-way arrows. These appear to have been turned arround since #10622.

As a child learning to cycle it was irresistable to ride down this steepish jitty and so much fun.

The advice to Horseriders to dismount here is probably sensible!

One way sign with No Cycling panel.

No Entry signs with the illegal No Cycling panels are still here several months after they were reported.

No-Entry signs from which the "Except Cycles" panels have now been removed.

Published: letter in Hinckley Times pleading not to introduce cycling ban like the one in Cambridge. Its got worse since, see #25669.

"No Cycling" panels have been added to these One Way street signs in Castle Street, Hinckley. What these signs are in effect saying is that all vehicles except cycles are permitted. Unless I've missed something big in cycling, these signs … [more]

The no entry signs, with their ridiculous "No Cycling" sub-panels did not stop this van driver going the wrong way up this 'pedestrianised' one-way street.

Whichever Highway Authority is currently responsible for Hinckley - and its not alway obvious who is dong what these days - but whoever it is, they have lost the plot completely. These No Cycling panels have recently appeared in this one … [more]

Entry into Hinckley's Pedestrian Zone does not prohibit cycling, but in the distance "No Cycling" signs have appeared underneath the One Way arrows. But see #19622. See also #25669.

The "No Cycling" panel underneath this No Entry sign is redundant, and probably illegal.

Leicestershire Highways Authority have advised me that for this 'No Cycling' sign... "there is no trace of an order being made and I suspect the 'no cycling sign' was simply put up on site without the associated written order.' They have … [more]

Hinckley's "Pedestrian Zone" permits buses and cycles.

The no-cycling sign here seems to be totally mean-spirited here. This connecting route is amply wide enough for cycling, and is used by motor vehicles for access and parking. Still it is a nice play area for children, who inevitably cycle … [more]

Although marked No Cycling, this jitty is a really useful short cut to Leicester Road.
