@helenpidd @GoBikeGlasgow Totally pointless cycle lane. Same cars there. Every. Single. Day. There is a car park behind the building too. This requires you to move out into gas traffic who are trying to turn left in a few metres. Near White ... [more]

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street ends in a car park at the Clydebank Health Centre.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street.

The start of the West Thomson Street cycle lane, opposite Clydebank High School.

Commercial van parking in the painted cycle lane on Port Dundas Road.

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

A "Cycle Quietway" has been signed through Knightswood, crossing Alderman Road here at Commore Drive. Again the buffer strip between the car parking bay and the cycle lane does not allow sufficient space for a car to be parked between th ... [more]

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

Absolutely perfect timing. @GoBikeGlasgow @UofGsustain @PeopleByresRoad #paintIsNotProtection https://t.co/LENi1rbIkA

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road r ... [more]

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

Chester Avenue, Slateford, Edinburgh. Where we built an out of town shopping centre in the middle of a residential area. Sunday, 1pm. https://t.co/XspjiI2zjF

Not all loading is essential*. Clerkenwell Rd needs kerb-protected bike tracks. Paint doesn’t work. *(London officially has the tastiest tap water in the world). https://t.co/xChTttRZEA

Good Bye Cycle Lane, Hello School Run Every day during term time people bring cars to roads near their child's school and take it for granted that their noble cause gives them priority over cycle lanes, double yellow lines, pavements an ... [more]

The cycle lane marking at the end of Callendar Boulevard encourages cycling on the wrong side of the road, just like #101199 at the other end of the road.

The end of Callendar Boulevard and the start of the path to Old Redding Road.

The road surface at the end of Callendar Boulevard is even worse than this photograph! There is a painted cycle lane on the left side of the carriageway, but not the right.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

A painted cycle lane has been provided through the traffic calming pinch-point, but only in one direction.

The painted cycle lanes on Bo'ness Road end here, and a jug-handle is provided to cross to the parallel access road to the right.

The painted cycle lanes continue from here into Grangemouth town centre.

Hi @EastRenCouncil , could you arrange to have this traffic information sign repositioned so that it doesn't block the cycle lane for the next 6 weeks? Its current position is creating conflict between people cycling and buses/cars etc. T ... [more]

Entitled driver's reaction to #carfreeday https://t.co/E6vXC6RfX1

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

Northwall Road in @noordinarypark. This is what happens when you build a neighbourhood with no public car parking, but don’t provide the infrastructure to allow people to use public transport, walk, or cycle there. #olympiclegacy https:// ... [more]

End of the cycle lane and part-time bus lane on Camelon Road, and start of Falkirk town centre's one-way system.

In theory the bus lane should help separate the cycle lane from the traffic in the general traffic lane, but almost all of the car drivers were choosing to drive in the bus lane outside of operational hours.

The start of a narrow painted cycle lane on Camelon Road, just after a collapsing gully at a bus stop.

The cycle lane has been painted the wrong way around. Such incompetence!

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

The car parking in the Callendar Boulevard painted cycle lanes resumes, but with no waiting restrictions to force drivers to take their cars to the car parks, it appears the council approves.

A break in the car parking to see the narrow painted cycle lanes.

The exit from Callendar Park onto Callendar Boulevard, where cars are regularly left blocking the painted cycle lanes.

The narrow cycle lane on Kelso Street bridge with footway car parking. No waiting restrictions so the assumption must be that the council approves of this.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

Cycle lanes on Greenfaulds Road, and the typical junction layout in many parts of Cumbernauld.

Ayr Road at Whitecraigs.

This is what a painted bike lane means @PeopleByresRoad @GlasgowCC @glendalegaelic @walkcyclevote St Andrew's Drive https://t.co/xSJ0xYx8OH

I don't suppose it matters that this van is parked in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane, since the cycle route turns right at the end of the road.

Junction potholes in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane.

The parking layby is again too narrow for ordinary cars to be reliably parked within, so eroding the buffer zone that is meant to contain door openings.

Cycle lane or not?

The painted cycle lane on Meiklewood Road goes around the bend, then vanishes for a bit.

The cycle lane on Meiklewood Road starts to move out from the kerb.

The cycle route is also a recommended route for lorry driving!

1/2 Yet another #designfail for #Edinburgh #cyclinginfrastructure. If this is what extra funding gets us we're screwed. https://t.co/8XNeziZQjN

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx

Haw @EastRenCouncil your bike lanes in the door zone are bad enough but this really is taking the piss! Move the sign please. https://t.co/6BHe6XluMf

A pathetic worn-out narrow painted door-zone cycle lane in Kilmarnock Road from the council that won the "Achievements in Cycling" award at the 2017 Scottish Transport Awards.

King Street's cycle lane doubles as an overtaking lane when there are parked cars about. A contraflow has been provided on the one-way section by permitting cycling on the existing footway.

Users of this cycle lane need to look out for oncoming motorists overtaking parked cars.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

Painted markings direct cyclists from Rutherglen onto the road to the right, but NCN756 actually goes left towards the Smart Bridge. Some dropped kerbs nearer or behind the camera would be useful here.

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No he ... [more]

The view along Calder Street.

I'm not sure how the cycle lane helps anything. The parked cars are more of a hazard than a low traffic sideroad with good sightlines.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

Poor alignment of cycle lane for those going straight on, and for the eagle-eyed, route (74) turns left.

Spot the route sign telling cyclists on route (74) to cross the road.

A recommended route for cyclists, along the A724.

Primary school children are expected to cycle along the A724 with only painted cycle lanes for "protection" on route (74).

After the bus stop, the cycle lane resumes on the road.

The Territorial Army Centre sign has been moved from the right to the left side of the shared-use footway. The cycle lane on the road leaves the adjacent lane too narrow for the traffic using it. No mention that the 74 route turns left at t ... [more]

The cycle lane ends and cyclists directed onto the footway. This sign has (74) rather than the 74 used on other signs nearby. Note also the crayon bike symbol on the carriageway.

I don't know what the designer thought would happen here.

No real attempt to allow bike access to housing estate via path from main road, and quite narrow cycle lanes for a 40mph road.

Onto the footway at the roundabout at Drumsagard. South Lanarkshire Council has signed the A724 as NCN74, even though the Sustrans NCN74 goes to Uddingston to join NCN75.

Nothing special at these bus stops.

Back onto the footway for the roundabout.

Each of the entrances to Halfway Park has barriers across it and no dropped kerb, making it difficult for people on bikes to visit. Also, another sign for local primary schools, and car parking in the cycle lane.

A door-zone cycle lane past a layby, and if you get hit, there's nowhere for passing motorists to swerve to avoid hitting you.

The stop-start cycle lane starts again under the parked car at the right of the picture.

Continuous cycle lanes past sideroad and traffic island.

Just when the road gets to a narrow bit on a slight climb, the cycle lane stops briefly.

Cycle lanes leading onto the roundabout in the centre of Morecambe.

A roundabout with cycle lanes on it.

A short section of cycle lane isn't enough for a parent to allow her kids to cycle on the road, after cycling along the riverside path.

Cycle lanes, a weight restriction and a box junction on the bridge over the River Colne.

A cycle lane suddenly appears on North Station Road, approaching another roundabout, just when cyclists need to be positioning themselves further to the right unless they happen to be turning left.

Jumping between footway and carriageway cycling at each roundabout, but with no obvious thought given to the transition.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign approaching the Northgate Road roundabout, but now the cycle route continues along to the end of Wallacewell Road. I don't know why the traffic island encroaches into the cycle lane.

Cycle lane on Wallacewell Road.

Narrow cycle lanes with no parking restrictions. When there were offices and other workplaces along here there would be lots of daytime car parking here. Shawfield Road represents a more direct route to Rutherglen than NCN756. Some of th ... [more]

Contraflow cycle lane interrupted by loading bay outside pub.

With-flow and contraflow painted cycle lanes in Church Street, with access to the Stonewell toucan crossing across the footway to the left.

The turning circle at the end of Water Street has a cycle lane painted around it! The access to the riverside path (in #87599) can be seen (centre). The Sainsbury car park also exits onto the turning circle (at right).

@bollocksinfra Hardest Strava segment in Stroud, Gloucestershire https://t.co/LCc1YaGmEw

Flooded cycle lane and footway. Looks like sand may have blocked drains.

The full length of the westbound cycle lane on Holmston Road is visible. Maybe it's work in progress, I don't know. The bus stop has a bag over the sign, but was still in use.

This bus stop has been deemed important enough for road markings. There is a large secondary school off to the left.

Leaves taking over the full width of the cycle lane.

Intensifying leaves. Again, the position of the short-lived segregated cycle lane is clear from the marks on the carriageway. The current end of the westbound cycle lane is visible on the right.

I thought current practice was to continue cycle lanes across junctions. (See also #84490 for what was here previously.)

No longer any need for bus passengers to 'Look Both Ways' (see #84491) before boarding bus, since the bus stops in the cycle lane.

The only person on a bike I'd seen since the town centre passed while I was photographing this pile of leaves.

More leaves in the Holmston Road cycle lane, and another convoy of cars approaching.

The Holmston Road cycle lane at the summit of the hill. The ghost island near the cemetery entrance near the bus stop hasn't (so far) been restored.
