Re: cycling journey planner with voice navigation

Ema Arvati
 

Hi Richenda,


That is strange, when I open cyclestreet I select where I need to go from-to first in the journey planner and then start the navigation and it works, the lady starts talking. I remember as I commented on the app some weeks ago and they replied to my comment as I told them that it was a bit useless if it did not have the navigation as people cannot keep on looking at the screen and they told me they had done some updates. Since then it works. As other have said google map works with voice navigation too although even if you select by bike it gives you the quickest route more than the quietest route.

Ema - I've just removed CycleStreets and reinstalled it but I still can't see voice navigation. Where is it? How do I turn it on?

All the apps listed here use the CycleStreets routing engine and most have voice nav:

Cyclestreet has been upgraded and it has voice navigation now as I have used it a couple of times recently so you might need to update the app or remove it and reinstall it again to work.

Does anyone use a cycling journey planner with voice navigation?  I've been using CycleStreets which is fine but it has no voice navigation and I'm fed up with having to keep stopping to look at the map.  Voice navigation is what I need!  Do you know of any?  Any good?

Google (Gmaps) has voice navigation, but the routes are often not as good as CycleStreets. But I know people who swear by it (and at it, probably).

Keep an eye out for the new Posters/BillBoards around Camden encouraging people to cycle. Please share photos if you see any.
Also, new from TFL attached. Makes a great email signature. 


Consultation on retaining the current arrangements on Goods Way

Jean Dollimore
 

Goods Way has been one way westbound for motor vehicles for most of its length during recent construction works. The section between the Kings Cross Station service road and York Way is two-way to allow service and construction vehicles to access York Way directly.  Two-way cycling has been maintained right along Goodsway.  

Camden proposes to make the current arrangements permanent

Consultation on Camden’s website

You can reply via the online survey.

I believe this is something CCC should support because the current arrangements prevent motor vehicles from using Goodsway as a Euston Road bypass in an eastbound direction. 

A few other points we might mention:
  • when the construction works are complete, complete the protected mandatory westbound cycle lane all the way from York Way
  • even allowing non-taxis to overtake ranking taxis, there is still spare road space at the western end. How about planting?
  • it would be even better to stop westbound through motor traffic apart from taxis
CCC will send a response based on the discussions here and on CycleScape

Charing Cross Road Southbound Closure

John Chamberlain
 

Just a warning that tomorrow for a week (at least) the southbound Charing Cross Road Bus and Cycle lane will be closed for emergency gas works at Old Compton Street. Buses will divert via Shaftesbury Avenue and cyclists can either do this or will have to walk through the closed part. Probably best to avoid the area and use Gower Street and Endell Street or the new LTN through Seven Dials.

Cadent have tried to allow a cycle route through the works but it looks like it won't be possible to do this safely due to the road layout.

You may be interested in some organised rides that are coming up.
  1. This Saturday (May 15th) Geoff is leading the first official CCC ride for over a year. This will be a short (8 mile) family-friendly circuit of the southern part of Camden from Swiss Cottage via Regents Park using segregated cycle lanes, traffic free spaces and quiet roads. It's a particularly good introduction to some of the new cycle infrastructure. Details at https://camdencyclists.org.uk/events/cycle-safely-on-camdens-roads/ - note that numbers are limited and you need to book.

  1. Our friends at Camden Clean Air have put together a self-guided tour of Camden to mark the start of Bike Week on Sunday 30th May.

The Camden Clean Air Cycle is a bike ride for the whole community to take part in to celebrate cycling, cleaner air, and the Borough of Camden. Taking place on the first day of Bike Week, Sunday 30 May, the 22km route will take riders all around the wonderful Borough of Camden. To make it even more enjoyable, riders are encouraged to stop off for refreshments at partner coffee shops that are signposted along the way. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we do not want to encourage a mass meet up of riders so people can complete the ride at any point between 10am and 4pm. 

Register your place here: https://camdencleanair.org/events/the-camden-clean-air-cycle/

They are looking for help with static marshals; if you can help, please contact Georgina McGivern gmcgivern@....

Geoff will lead another ride at the end of Bike Week, on June 6th, from Sidings to Brent Park - keep an eye on our website (https://camdencyclists.org.uk/) for details. Hopefully, by then Covid restrictions will be further lifted.

And don't forget our AGM on Monday with guest speaker Sarah Berry. Details here. Hope to see of you then.
