'Slow' - a path that needs widened once the work behind the hoarding is finished.

New housing on the outskirts of East Kilbride that, despite appearances, doesn't have adequate provision for car storists' needs.

Why have a straight path alongside the car park?

The Kelvin Walkway at the Kelvin Aqueduct. A pity about the kink in the path still being present. Awkward and annoying when you're just picking up speed from the preceding narrow climb and blind corner.

The Holmston Road cycle lane commences around the bend (sign just visible in #85995).

The legendary hairpin bend of the Viaduct Walk Location: , St. Andrews (Scotland, United Kingdom)

An unnecessarily abrupt change of direction for path.

The "RR" cycle route has plenty of roadspace, but it has been arranged for the convenience of motorists, without any thought about cycling!

One of the hairpin bends in the cycle path up to the cycle track on the Erksine Bridge.

The start of the King Duncan's Road cycle lanes in Raigmore Estate.

The cycle lanes on King Duncan's Road leave so little room for other traffic that they are largely ignored by drivers. Sightlines are poor around the bend and on hill, so centre line removal isn't really an option. This is the main road int ... [more]

The point where cyclists are meant to leave the roadway is fortuitously just beyond the point where most pedestrians leave the footway to go down the steps to Old Perth Road. However, there's no indication what first-timers are meant to do, ... [more]

The cycle lanes on King Duncan's Road continue to the foot of the hill. The junction with the dual carriageway is restricted Left On Left Off.

The widening of the footway ends before the roundabout, where it reverts to its former width, making it a bit narrow where sightlines are poorest.

The branching path for left turns onto Crown Street is a bit of a blind bend.

Painted cycle lane on Crown Street vulnerable to motorist incursions, plus connecting cycle track from Myrtle Street.

Painted cycle lanes on a busy, hostile, 50mph road, with plenty of cars being driven partly in the cycle lanes.

Cycle lanes on the A7 near Sheriffhall

'O' (see #60726)

It's disappointing that the opportunity wasn't taken to widen the shared-use footway during the Borders Railway bridge parapet works (see also #60727).

Cycle ride from Twycross to Atherstone

Driver of LY11 CVE passing while I'm nearly in centre of lane, approaching an intersection at a blind bend. (I'm preparing to turn right. This is the single worst point of my daily commute.) This is on High Street in Willingham, approach ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/6H3kd5EgfNM "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 Notice how I jump, and the trailer after the 3-wheeler was an added bonus.

See clip at http://youtu.be/dtfs9zGioN4 "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 Can't be bothered to wait a few seconds, would rather risk my safety.

See clip at http://youtu.be/_TvMUhKmptI Minimally breaking "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 But must come up to the careless driving given all the circumstances. Round a bl ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/fxpqip9HXwk I'm going along Granchester Road around 20mph about to turn up the hill. I hear a car coming right up behind me, then pull out into the opposite lane (at about 1 second into this clip). They have n ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1DHBm9Qxzo I've annotated the clip to show the issues with this overtake.

The (advisory) cycle lane here needs to be widened and repainted, in order to encourage drivers not to enter it. No need to go into the cycle lane at this bend.
