brodiec - "I think it's also worth imagining the Sherman Cut as cyclist accessible..."

Is the Sherman access permitted to be used by bikes? I am almost certain I recall seeing a 'no bikes' sign at the top of the Sherman cut. However I still see people biking along there. Actually when I go to Central Cycle for parts, the easiest route is the Sherman cut so I've inadvertently disobeyed that already. And space does exist for paved shoulders which are present along most of it already.

Actually many times I've looked around while climbing the Jolley Cut and thought how easy it would be to improve ... but simultaneously fearing that 'no bikes' signs would go up rather than actual improvements. The status quo culture makes it more likely to ban bikes than engineer them into the solution but hopefully that is excessive paranoia and that they'd never be so deliberately evil.
