No sign at the turn into Cluny Avenue, on the interim Bears Way route. The previous time I came through here there was a direction sign on the lamppost, but it had been damaged by passing traffic, since it stuck out into the carriageway ... [more]

The "except cycles" panels on these "No Through Road" signs are still covered up, even though this part of the interim Bears Way route has been complete for some time.

The end of the Bears Way interim route through Cluny Park, at a new toucan crossing across the A81 Maryhill Road dual carriageway. A shared-use footway connects to the entrance to Garscube Estate just off to the left, and continues as far a ... [more]

After digging around in the leaves, this member of the study tour found a dropped kerb that may have been intended to allow cyclists to leave the carriageway and use the traffic island crossing to get across the road. But there is no signag ... [more]

The end of phase 1 of the Bears Way cycle route, and having had priority at numerous junctions, this Give Way means cyclists will have to stop for cars turning into Burnmouth Place. The old cycle lane continues for only a few metres beyo ... [more]

The end of phase 1 of the Bears Way cycle route, and priority over turning traffic at junctions is immediately lost with this Give Way. This is also the point where northbound cyclists are meant to cross the road to use the cycle track. ... [more]

A basic bus stop without a shelter or much of an island between the boarding point and the cycle track.

A chicane approaching a bus stop on the Bears Way cycle track.

A gully right in the middle of the Bears Way cycle track at a bend near the Allander Sports Centre access road junction.

The Bears Way cycle track crosses the Allander Sports Centre access road with a (slightly) raised priority crossing.

The cycle track crosses the access road to the Allander Sports Centre by moving away from the Milngavie Road alignment to cross further back from the road junction (see #72183).

A toucan crossing across Milngavie Road and the Bears Way cycle track. No particularly obvious reason why it is a toucan rather than a pedestrian crossing, since the footway on the left is narrow and not suitable for cycling on, and the pat ... [more]

A chicane in the cycle track approaching a bus stop. The shelter for this stop is on the footway rather than the bus stop island. This intending passenger seems happy to wait leaning against a bollard.

Temporary arrangements at what will become the entrance to a new housing estate.

Priority at golfing range side-road crossing on Bears Way cycleway.

No cycle parking outside shops next to Bears Way cycleway. Maybe there's some round the back in the car park, but some here would be more obvious for anyone who cared to stop.

Chicane for cyclists approaching bus stop on Bears Way cycleway. In foreground, access to/from side-road opposite.

The shared-use path from the Allander Leisure Centre meets the Bears Way cycle track at the toucan crossing across the A81, and across from the Craigdhu Wedge path.

The path down the side of the fitness club is the inauspicious start of the Craigdhu Wedge path. Access is from the shared-use footway in the foreground and segregated track to the right, or from the toucan crossing just to the left of the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track crosses from one side of the A81 to the other on the boundary between Bearsden and Milngavie (both East Dunbartonshire Council). The crossing also provides access between the Craigdhu Wedge path and the path to the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track crosses from one side of the A81 to the other, one of the main reasons for not using it cited by people who continue to cycle on the main carriageway. I'm guessing the traffic signal poles are still to be reloca ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track has priority over vehicles exiting the fitness club. Not so clear about vehicles entering.

The cycletrack gets narrower at the car parking layby, presumably to offer protection from the door-zone. But it just juts out without any transition.

Once you've managed to get onto the track, the Bears Way offers protection from the motor traffic on the A81. But the cycle track switches sides shortly, at the 'golden arches' visible in the distance.

The end of the Bears Way segregated cycleway and back onto the road at the Burnbrae Roundabout. Not so clear how to make this transition southbound.

More #space4cycling emerging on the A81 in Milngavie, one of Scotland's most car-dependent towns. Yay! http://t.co/myYuLWJmXz
