107951Photo #107951An illustration of why these shared-use footways are all a bit too narrow. Earphones in and got a surprise when I slowly edged ahead. But no harm done. Just everyday cycling on the infrastructure provided.

Plus some subsidence affecting the asphalt and edging at the edge of the path, and the tactiles as far as the middle of the path.
