Leeds is not exactly over-endowed with quality cycle lanes. Where they do exist they are very often of sub-standard width - so it *really* helps when they are full of 'road-porridge'.
This fine specimen is at Sheepscar, already a junction likely to strike fear into most two-wheeled travellers. The cycle lane is full of some kind of mud, chunks of wood, cans and plenty of fag butts.
The red surface is almost totally obscured with crud which does not help any road-user. We aren't sure how often they are cleaned, or even if there is an official schedule. Funny thing is though, the main carriageways look fine.
Poor cycle lanes, no one cares about them.
