141898Photo #141898This could be an alternate access to Manchester Road, then follow the west side pavement to Rising Bridge which is very wide for most of the way and could be a shared path.Cycleway:

133964Photo #133964Hyndburn greenway is well used to avoid busy Manchester Road. Unfortunately this track finishes at Hollands Pies. A continuation of the geenway to Rawtenstall would be ideal and well used.Cycleway:

109761Photo #109761This is where the good parts of the cycleway start - south of this location, the surface is gravelly and not very good. It's perfectly ridable, just nowhere near as nice. And unfortunately it's full of silly barriers like this one.Obstruction:

109759Photo #109759It's easy to cycle through these bollards - unlike the old metal barriers south of here, which are extremely difficult to navigate.Cycleway:

109758Photo #109758Great surface on the former railway here. Just a shame that behind the photographer, the path turns up to the main road. It would be better if the route went behind the factory and onto Station Road.Cycleway:

109753Photo #109753I'm not quite sure why the council didn't just build the track through the stone wall to the right, but perhaps something is needed to stop idiots parking on the pavement - like the van driver...Cycleway:

109750Photo #109750This barrier is a little bit wide but most cyclists should be easily capable of getting around it. I would have preferred a removable bollard, since some people on unusual bikes, or disabled folk, might struggle here.Cycleway:
