Walk on a road? You’re a jaywalker and deserve to die. https://t.co/eco5Aqf9uJ https://t.co/n35TLT7rCh

Bizarre set-up below the new Walton Bridge with separate bridleway and shared-use cycleway.

Junction on the Thames-side NCN route 4 at the new Walton Bridge

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway - but in fact most will want to to cross the road to the riverside trail.

Shared-use path by the road up to the new Walton Bridge and new bridleway signed for horses only to the right.

Cycle parking at new Walton Bridge café/toilets/information centre

Bridleway link below the new Walton bridge - temporarily closed due to some minor dampness at the bottom.

It's absurd that this new bridleway in Walton on Thames is signed only as a horse-riding route.

Fast road with no cycle lanes or safe crossing

Shared-use footway blocked by selfish commuters to Walton

Start of one-way road with shared-use footway towards Walton bridge

Cycle parking at Shepperton station

Cycle parking at Shepperton station

Signage towards Shepperton station

Gap of approximately one car length between two cycle lanes - why??

I have no idea which station could be to the left - Shepperton (to the right) is the end of the line.

Just because it's the end of the dedicated cycle route there's no need to dismount - just rejoin the road system.

Ferry Lane, Shepperton, closed by the January 2014 Thames floods

Concrete block parking at Shepperton old church

Short cycle lane leading in to roundabout - and road closed by flooding

Cycle lanes on roundabout only

End of shared-use footway from the new Walton bridge (there are dropped kerbs and an island to the right, but no formal crossing)

Temporary cycle/pedestrian access to the new Walton bridge past new roundabout

Shared-use footway on the new Walton bridge

Link to Thames-side path from the new Walton bridge - and annoying Cyclists Dismount sign because of course cyclists can't be trusted to turn 90 degrees without mowing pedestrians down

The new Walton bridge - and the January 2014 Thames flood

Link under the new Walton bridge to the Thames-side path

Shared-use footway to the new Walton bridge

The new Walton Bridge - the Bailey Bridge alongside (for cyclists) has been demolished, and the new footways will be open for cycling, but not yet.

At Chertsey Bridge NCN4 splits. You can go left here towards Shepperton, or you can cross the bridge towards Chertsey and Weybridge.

At Chertsey Bridge, if you want to go towards Chertsey then you need to get on the footway and go through the tunnel under the bridge.

At the end of Vicarage Lane NCN4 joins Ferry Lane. Look out for traffic from your left.

At Vicarage Lane the route joins this road but continues along the riverside.

From Blacksmiths Lane NCN4 continues along the riverside.

At Blacksmiths Lane a left turn takes you to the local shop, but NCN4 continues straight on along the riverside.

As the road turns to the left, the cycle path continues straight on along the riverside.

Leaving the Penton Hook lock area. Beware the cobbles. Not smooth!

The entrance to the Penton Hook lock area.

NCN4 proceeds along the river path past Penton Hook Road.

NCN4 proceeds along the river path. To the left is Wheatsheaf Lane. The Wheatsheaf and Pidgeon is about 100m dowm this lane.

NCN4 proceeds along the footway until it separates from the road at the railway bridge.

NCN4 turns left here before the hotel. It's easy to miss this turn,

NCN4 crosses over the river Colne on this pleasant footbridge.

At the end of the car park NCN4 turns left through the tunnel under Staines bridge.

NCN4 turns right here and proceeds along the footway before separating from the road just before the railway bridge.

NCN4 routes under Staines bridge and then turns right and goes through the car park.

For NCN4 turn left down the pedestrian ramp into the car park.

For NCN4 stay on the footway at the end of the bridge and then turn left into the car park.

No cycling on the Thames Path under the A308, Staines

Thames Path, Staines - no cycling here

Funky modern design in Staines town centre - no signs to ban cycling, but it's probably not allowed here.

Nicely spaced cycle racks in redesigned Staines town centre.

Plastic geotextile surface on Thames Path (cycle route) - very rough, though it'd be much better if laid level.

Walton Bridge - cyclists can use the old bridge across the Thames, but have to use the busy carriageway across the dry bridge immediately southeast. To be changed, perhaps, when the new bridge is built.

Walton Bridge Road - a major bottleneck. Cyclists can use the old bridge to the east. A major new bridge is planned, presumably with some kind of cycle facilities.

Walton Lane - a contraflow cycle track leading to Walton Bridge, not signposted from Shepperton.

The Thames Path crosses the river by ferry from Shepperton to Weybridge

Thames Path cycle route at start of Shepperton bypass.

Thames Path cycling route following the Chertsey Road on shared-use path for quite a way.

But I've just come from Staines - is the sign the wrong way around?

Thames Path south/east from Staines.

Start of Thames Path south/east from Staines

Staines - cycle route from the train station to the bus station (under the bridge)

Station Path, Staines - from the station to the town centre
