|Cyclists get the hump. At the start of a newly constructed pavement in Teversham (that has yet again been deemed as suitable for cycling on – see article) cyclists encounter this cambered hump. Much better that cyclists should have to go over the hump than the builders should have to lower an inconveniently placed drain cover. Right at the hump there is a shared-use sign, implying that you can cycle from there. On the other side is a Cyclists Dismount sign – anathema on a ‘cycle route’ – but is it referring to the hump or something else?
