In Cumbernauld you can actually live above your cycle path! Quite why route 2 isn't routed straight through to the school access road I don't know.

Back onto the path, but first, which car do I risk accidentally scratching? No dropped kerb and no thought as to how this space is actually used.

Having joined Larch Road at #80303, already time to leave it.

Path ends into driver's car door. Hope he doesn't decide to get out just as I approach.

Because going straight ahead would be too difficult. See #80303 for what happens next.

The second sign on route 2, starting from #80246 at Abronhill. I had to search for this one.

Route 2 nears its end at the health centre car park in Abronhill (looking towards #80246).

The point in Abronhill where routes 2 and 3 of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network meet. Except route 2 goes through the health centre car park, and route 2a goes to Palacerigg Country Park, not the station.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 at a railway bridge, matching the similar sign in #67680 for the opposite direction.

Route 2 in Kildrum, heading down to the footbridge at #67683.

The junction of routes 2 and 3a.

Route 2 crosses the main carriageway of Lye Brae on a footbridge, but goes under a sliproad. The footbridge has both a ramp and steps at this end (level with ground at other end). [The concrete sculpture next to the steps can be seen to ... [more]

Route 2 passes beneath Lye Brae sliproad, then over the main carriageway.

Underpass on route 2.

Route 2 goes down ramp from Asda car park and across the goods entrance. There are chicane barriers across the next section of path, visible on the far side of the crossing.

Route 2 forks left here, not right.

Route 2 continues past the town centre.

Route signs all pointing 90 degrees away from the correct direction for each.

Damaged route sign pointing slightly downwards in Cumbernauld town centre. [In this photo https://flic.kr/p/oUftnt the signs point in different directions.]

Having negotiated the edge of the Tesco car park, route 2 heads through the pedestrian plaza.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign for a (non-Toucan) pedestrian crossing on Cumbernauld's cycle route 2, and then the route continues along a narrow footway around the perimeter of the Tesco car park.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the Jane's Brae footbridge.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the footbridge over Jane's Brae.

A 'turn left' sign for this location where the route turns right then swings around to the left, up ramp onto footbridge over North Carbrain Road.

Steep slope out of underpass beneath Greenfaulds Road.

Route sign hidden in tree.

Sign says route 2 forks right here. Now possibly it means cross the footbridge and back through the underpass in #70416, but forking left leads there directly.

This seems to be the junction between Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 3. Destinations for route 3, but not for route 2, and double-sided signs for both at T-junction.

By 'fork left' do they mean turn left and cross under the dual carriageway only to cross back at #70418, or go straight ahead?

The start of the climb on the A73 footbridge.

The climb to the A73 footbridge.

The junction signs for Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 1e, with 1e seen going straight ahead.

The junction of Cumbernauld's cycle routes 2 and 1e, and these signs do have destinations. The sign for the turn where route 2 goes across the A73 footbridge can be seen in the distance.

It doesn't say, but this seems like a good location to transfer onto the carriageway.

Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 passing a bus stop on the Condorrat Ring Road.

A Cyclists Dismount sign at the footbridge over the Condorrat Ring Road. This side of the footbridge has a ramp and steps, the other side is at ground level (see #70318).

Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 continues onto the footbridge across the Condorrat Ring Road. There is also a marker post with a blue arrow.

Another route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2, plus some barriers where the path crosses the access road to a small car park.

Route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 in Condorrat. The next section of path is right in front of some houses.

Route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 on the Condorrat Ring Road.

An 'End of Route' sign, presumably for Cumbernauld cycle route 2, and signs with destinations facing across the road and towards a hedge for going towards the town centre. The Cumbernauld to Glasgow cycle route continues along the main r ... [more]

Route signs on the far side of the junction, not really visible on the approach when turning decision needs to be made on a main road. The sign for route 4 is only visible for someone coming from the Condorrat Ring Road, not from Mollins ... [more]

Spot the route sign for Cumbernauld cycle route 2. This section of route is on-road, unlike most of the Cumbernauld cycle network, and on a 40mph road at that!

A nice smooth curve in the junction at the end of the footbridge, but no signs for cycle route 2. [It goes straight ahead, to #70616.]

The junction of Cumbernauld's 2 and 1c cycle routes.

Route signs for Cumbernauld cycle routes 2, 2a and 2c.

Route signs for Cumbernauld cycle routes 2, 2a and 2c, but no mention of the right fork.
