84927Photo #84927Wheelbenders at the St Nicholas Retail Park - two bikes locked to the roof supports and the man in the background has ignored the wheelbenders in favour of locking to the trolly racks. I'm pretty sure wheelbenders were not acceptable when this retail park was built, so it's disappointing they're still here.Cycle parking:

18982Photo #18982This is where NCN11 should go, straight up the High Street, but it is one way. So you have to cycle all the way around the one way system.

Is it really so important that the van has a place to park ? Why isn't there two way cycling ? Have a look in Manual for Streets for where our priorities should lie.

18972Photo #18972This footpath link to the A10 is marked as a cycle path at one end but is poor. It SHOULD be a very useful little link into Downham Market from the villages to the east, but ... it is narrow and overgrown, and the exit to the A10 is very poor. See #18971

It doesn't need to be this way. Solution:

Widen the path, remove the stagger, put down a smooth surface and sign it so that people know it is there,
