[Image taken 6.5.21] Marygate car park, York. A very steep slope leads to/from Scarborough Bridge. To get up a slope on a cycle you need a runup and to be positioned correctly. Wider, longer cycles (see: #165610), and those with trailers … [more]

The connection from the painted cycle lane to the parallel zebra crossing over to the segregated cycle track on Valley Road.

A bus stop bypass on Lincoln Avenue, next to Knightswood Park. Most bus passengers will be alighting at this stop rather than boarding. Looking back at my photos of this route, I notice that only this section has the 'No Loading' kerb … [more]

The roundabout now includes a shortcut for Fastlink buses only. No cycling through this! Also, the traffic signals for the bus gate have been replaced by a Give Way.

A right turn cycle lane for avoiding the roundabout when going into the end section of Nithsdale Road or turning into Moray Place, but could do with some cycle markings and an 'except cycles' plate below the 'No Right Turn' sign.

South Lanarkshire Council's interpretation of a bus stop bypass, with no continuous footway so all pedestrians expected to walk via the bus stop island. The bus stop itself is in a layby so buses may get delayed waiting to leave.

Cycle track bypass of mini-roundabout. Very rough and rarely swept, compared with the smooth carriageway which is unsurprisingly preferred by most cyclists.

Work in progress on a bus stop bypass on Wallacewell Road. But this is the terminus of the 57A route and the buses will need to wait here.

A bus stop bypass with a zebra crossing in Wallacewell Road.

A motorist that doesn't understand how the footway works. A bus stop bypass with zebra crossing.

Motorbike bypass for traffic boom at the University of Strathclyde. I guess bicycle users could use it too.

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

Cycle bypass to mini-roundabout and traffic-calming for those going straight ahead, while NCN 7 is signed to the right for the Low Green path. The footway is also signed as shared-use. Take your pick.

Cycle bypass to traffic-calming, but vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

One example of a very poor pass, several more here. (Date could be 1 or 2 days out, time is correct.)

Huntingdon Rd cycle tracks under construction at Girton corner @camcycle with bus stop bypass

St Philip's Road - with contraflow cycle lane. Only the first five metres of this road are in fact one-way. It becomes a two-way street at the hump, backed up by the sign on the left.

Many cyclists don't bother to use the fussy bypass lane. Because of changes to the rules about cycling in one way streets it probably wouldn't be designed like this today.

The opposite side of the horrendous Rock Ferry Bypass crossing on the Wirral Circular Trail (see #53837). No dropped kerb, poor sightlines, no assistance in crossing the bypass itself.
