The new Splash Point

Submitted by Fonant on Fri, 2011-07-01 11:25
The newly-redesigned Splash Point is now positively thronging with people, many of them travelling by bicycle. Such an improvement over the empty windswept concrete space it was before. The cafés appear to be doing a roaring trade too! The new Splash Point

So, are we allowed to cycle here now, or not? Cycling or NO CYCLING?

Ways onto the Prom at the western end

There are no official ways to get to and from the Prom at the western end, a surprising omission. Ways onto the Prom at the western end

The area between the Lido and the Pier can get busy at times, but during the week it’s nice and quiet. The Lido

This is a fun variation on a theme: a CYCLISTS DISMOUNT sign temporarily covered by the Council. Cyclists Don't Dismount?

Really too narrow!

Submitted by Fonant on Wed, 2010-08-18 21:39
This section of cycle lane doesn’t have the escape route of the pedestrian side. It is possible to pass oncoming cyclists (as this image shows!) but only by riding right at the edge of the path. Fall off the edge into the shingle and you’ll be off your bike… Really too narrow!

The cycle lane from Worthing to Brooklands is wide enough to pass others, but only if you use the pedestrian side (illegally). Too narrow!

Back to segregation, east of Ham Road

Submitted by Fonant on Wed, 2010-08-18 21:28
East of Ham Road the route goes back to being segregated, but the cycle lane is rather narrow. Cyclists often ride on the pedestrian side, both to avoid oncoming cyclists and because it’s much smoother to ride on!

The main problem is avoiding the bollards when trying to overtake or pass other cyclists when there are pedestrians around. Timing can be critical.

Shared use at Ham Road

Acres of rough red paint, on an undulating pavement, but at least there’s plenty of space to give people waiting for buses, or to cross the road, lots of space. Shared use at Ham Road
