London cycle network

Since the new criteria changed few months ago , I thought most of trail sign/marker started to be more elegible , even if not named trail. Expecially if they encourage exercise and exploring the city. I tried to nominate a sign of the London cycle network in a park, clearly accessible walking and/or cycling. The sign lead to a rugby stadium ( touristic attraction). Any idea why the Cycle network are still get rejected?

    I am someone who clearly supports nominating cycling trails. But I think this one is rightfully rejected. There are two main reasons. With the sign I can not tell that it represents the trail. The other reason is that you nminated a cycling infrastrcuture and not a trail. I am not an native english speaker but it seems to me that a trail is something which encourages the activitie itself. With the cycling network it seems to me that its purpose is that it gets cyclists from a to b safely and quickly.

    A generic, mass produced sign. 1* - The object is mass-produced, generic, or not visually unique or interesting.

    This argument does not fit with trail markers. You do not nominate the marker but the trail. The trail is not generic. The trail marker is only the place holder.

    Here the Problem is that this ist not a trail

    Perfect, thank you for the clarification, I always had contrasting feeling about it , because yes is a mass produced sign, yes is mostly a cycling route and not pedestrian. But because it encourages people to cycle ( doing exercises) and it pass mostly near touristic places (exploring) in the area I thought it could be elegible. Plus is made from tfl and on the website you can see all the different route it go through.

    Thank you everyone
