[Image taken 15.7.21] Marygate car park, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] The only exit/entrance on this side of the car park between it and the key cycle-ped-wheelchair route – including NCN65 – that passes it. Local peop ... [more]

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]

[Image taken 11.5.21] Marygate car park, York. It This sign is not clear - does it refer to the inside or outside of the car park. Neither was possible today. It's not possible to exit the car park if you follow the 'edge'. There were peopl ... [more]

The path from Shields Road and Scotland Street runs alongside the northernmost section of Shields Road before rejoining the road. The asphalt strip gets progressively narrower, forcing everyone onto the cobbles.

The surface of Lymburn Street is rather bumpy, with poorly relaid cobbles.

Mo Motor Vehicles

Messy obstructed cycleway on Douglas Street, with a totally inappropriate surface. Just like the one on Waterloo Street to the left (see #95475 and #95476).

The wet tyre tracks in the Gordon Street contraflow cycle lane reveal that some motorists are entering it in lieu of slowing down to make a tighter turn.

Great to see some bollards go in to prevent pavement parking on West St @TowerHamletsNow . I wonder how much installation of each bollard costs to stop drivists...

I don't know why the path doesn't continue behind the wall. The cobbles are not everyone's cup of tea.

Cycle parking outside the Piece Hall, Halifax.

A poor change of surface on the path from Crookston Road into Rosshall Park.

A terrible change of surface on the path from Rosshall Park to Crookston Road. Mind how you go!

Another fine entry in the Bike Racks Designed By People Who Have Never Locked A Bike Awards 2019

The full length of the Pearce Lane cycle track. For some strange reason, the dropped kerb at Water Row does not extend to the full width of the cycle track.

A protected cycle lane along Pearce Lane, between Pearce Street and Water Row.

Boscawen Street, part of the NCN looking towards City Hall and the war memorial.

A fairly new cycle link on Hopehill Road, including some new green space created by shortening the former carriageway on this side of the closure.

Start of the ascent out of Bergen

An ad-hoc ramp has been concreted onto these two steps.

Cycling on the cobbles in the old city of Khiva

Just Eat hire bikes in the Temple Bar area.

Inside the Union Canal's Falkirk Tunnel.

Looking inside the Union Canal's Falkirk Tunnel. A sign back at #101156 advises dismounting. I wouldn't disagree. This end of the tunnel is quite wet, so can be slippery.

The footway of Old Polmadie Road has been designated as a shared-use footway, with hazards such as cars being reversed out of driveways, and the alternative is the road with rough surfaces through each junction. This will become the dire ... [more]

A rough surface at each junction, but the footway through this residential area has been designated shared-use, with all the hazards that might be expected, such as car drivers reversing cars out of driveways.

A rough surface for cycling, but barely noticeable in a car.

Despite the Clyde Gateway road and new police headquarters being built alongside, the cobbled ramp still remains unaltered. A flight of concrete steps has been provided for access to the police headquarters.

Cobbles on an un-named backstreet, York

Cobbled street and York’s Minster. Chapter House Street, from Ogleforth.

Really not an ideal cycle route, except for MTBs.

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

A pothole in Radnor Street, with exposed cobbles. UPDATE 2020: Road now resurfaced.

Parking for motorbikes

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times!

Obstruction on Church Lane, Whitby

A path from Hamilton Road through to Greentree Drive.

Glasgow really pushing the boat out on cycling infrastructure I see...

Not the best surface for a cycle path. A dropped kerb for joining from the carriageway would also be advantageous.

"No Entry except buses and taxis" at the former Water Bus terminal, now part of NCN75.

The cobble replacement work only goes so far, so together with the bumpy path opposite Speirs Wharf means the canal path is still not the ideal route into the city from the northwest that it could be.

Access from Baird's Brae to the canal bridge and city-bound path is cobble-free, but the left turn towards Maryhill involves crossing a strip of cobbles.

New smooth shared path down Baird's Brae.

Some new surfacing on the canal path at Baird's Brae, partly replacing cobbles

Cobbled Moor Lane with cycle parking on traffic island, and access to a toucan crossing across Stonewell via a shared-use footway on the right.

Cycle track through closed off road between Claremont St and Argyle St.

No dropped kerb to access shared-use footway on Dover St.

Access to the path in front of the Sheriff Court is via a dropped kerb protected by double yellow lines.

What in the name of all that is good is this absolute travesty of cycle infra? It's narrower than my handlebars!

Now that this dropped kerb forms part of a cycle route, it might be time to trim back the lower branches on these trees.

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

Completely random signs at path junction. The path to the left goes to Wardpark Industrial Estate, not the town centre or Ravenswood, and is not part of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network. The path forking right does lead to Abronhill, but is ro ... [more]

Signed cycle route between Renfrewshire House and NCN7, via a cobbled back street.

A dropped kerb has been provided at the end of Carlton Place.

The shared-use path from the Allander Leisure Centre to the A81, with a random cobbled part. No dropped kerb at the end. If a bridge under the railway line was provided, this path would connect the Craigdhu Wedge path to the Allander Wal ... [more]

Welcome to Cumbernauld! Some of the route signs have been twisted round a bit, so it is not obvious which route they point to at the crossroads of paths. Routes 1a and 1b are signed from here, but do not reappear on the signs until they bra ... [more]

One of the few cyclists to actually ride where they're supposed to, rather than the smooth surface to the sides. This is the opposite of the excellent idea at #50390.

The traffic signals on Candleriggs don't exempt cycles from their mandatory left and right turns, even though King Street ahead has a contraflow cycle lane. Location: Candleriggs, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Cobbled backlane cycle route off of Regent Park Square.

Cobbles or slabs to choose from on NCN 56.

Some sort of group ride proceeding cautiously down the footway of William Brown Street, rather than on the cobbled roadway, passing the library and museum.

A sign pointing the way to cycle parking, outside the World Museum. Perhaps some cycle parking stands could be installed here. There's plenty of car parking in this street.

Uneven cobbles nightmare

A member of staff directs this cyclist to the diversion around the Festival event (see #60911).

The cycle route doesn't even go over the tram tracks and yet there's still a Cyclists Dismount sign!

Sign for Colleges Cycle Route, but with no destination.

The route under the bridge leads to North Woodside Road.

Oldenburg cycleways - along this bit of cobbled street a smooth section has been put in the middle for the courtesy of the rider. The same layout with a smoother centre lane for bikes has been used for about century. Sadly, over time car ... [more]

The towpath over the Almond Aqueduct is narrow and cobbled, and cyclists are advised to dismount (and here most do)

Temporary NCN75 diversion around the section of Anderston Quay wall that collapsed, somewhat narrow and cobbled at this end (see also #47843 and #47844) UPDATE: A thin strip of tarmac has now been laid alongside the cobbles and the fence ... [more]

Cobbled section of cycle path through Castle Park

Rails, cobbles, rough tarmac and just dirt. No expense has been spared in creating a tactile experience for cyclists avoiding the stepped footbridge on NCN 7! Path connects SECC and Riverside Museum (see #37217). Note cyclist preferring adj ... [more]

Steep cobbled ramp access to NCN 75 cycle path at Rutherglen Bridge. Megabucks are being spent rebuilding the road at this location, but will any money go on the cycle path access? Update at #71262.
