The Boquhanran Road underpass beneath the Forth & Clyde Canal. I'm sure the road network would still function if this was shut to motor traffic and a more suitable surface laid for safer cycling.

Maybe it's because I don't enter Speirs Wharf from Craighall Road very often, but I almost cycled down the cobbled slope since I was this time going to turn left down the ramp to Garscube Road. The layout here could be better. The steps ... [more]
