Why can't the corner be more rounded? What are the bollards for? Why isn't there a distance for the town centre? The cycle route doesn't even go as far as the town centre. It gives up on Queensway at #31505.

The underpass beneath Kingsway at the end of Maxwellton Road has ramps and is possible to cycle, but has lots of sharp corners. The dropped kerb is also a bit of a bump.

The path to the canal could not only be wider, and have a dropped kerb at the end, but could also meet the road nearer the corner to avoid being blocked by parked vehicles. The priority sign to the right needs corrected too.

Tinker Sic side weir bridge, blind corner to right

Tinker Sic side weir - blind left had corner north bound

Towpath under road bridge at Tapton Lock Northbound showing narrow width and blind corner - hence recommendation for cyclists to follow signposted alternative over the road.

A shared footway in Victoria Park Drive South, and signage for local destinations.

The cyclepath doesn't run directly to the toucan crossing, necessitating sharp turns, when the desireline is across open land.

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns the corner here, which may account for the difference in path widths. But no signs.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If the route to Bellshill and Coatbridge is so important, why does the shared-use footway alongside the A725 basically peter out at the top of Bogs Brae?

The end of the ramp from the Raith Interchange roundabout cycle bridge (see #93301) ends at the A725 sliproad. There are then some right-angled corners to turn at and toucan crossings to cross to get to Bothwell. Queuing drivers also see ... [more]

I guess they never thought that anyone would cycle to the industrial units, so never thought to install a dropped kerb where the path meets the road. Of course, the majority of users will be going the other way, so why the turn away from ... [more]

The vegetation needs better management on what has become a blind corner on NCN1.

Govan Interchange's cycle parking is now located in a corner around the side of the subway station building.

A lot of money was spent completely rebuilding Dalmarnock station, and yet the cycle parking has been placed far too close to a wall in what looks like quite a dodgy corner. All the barriers around the Dalmarnock Road/Clyde Gateway junct ... [more]

A van parked on the cycle path in Cadzow Lane, and the twisted around sign from #89517.

The cycle route turns sharp right around the back of the bush to where the van is parked. The sign is facing the wrong way, and the footway markings are worn out. It's like they are not even trying to create a decent cycle route. The mod ... [more]

Cyclists are expected to cycle on the footway past a blind corner and then through the bus stop waiting area.

A terrible layout for the Broomielaw shared-use footway at the Fastlink busway. See also #88469.

A narrow blind corner on the Broomielaw shared-use footway, with some upstand for anyone approaching from a position where they can see at least some way around the corner.

So I guess anyone seeing the state of the track ahead will be on the lookout for evidence that the cycle route does turn here, but still the sticker on the fencepost behind the mesh is not nearly adequate signage. The whole corner could be ... [more]

This box surely didn't need to be placed right in the way of the path, creating a blind corner?

A bit of a pinchpoint in the walkway through Collegelands, but with cycle parking in a neat corner.

At a path junction like this I'd expect the corners to be filled in. I guess at some point the vacant plots of land will be developed and the opportunity to do this missed.

NCN69 turns right here to go down a ramp into the underpass beneath the road to the left. See also #87503 & #87504. The City Loop cycle route continues straight ahead on the shared footway.

A bit of a blind corner, but widened enough to take the turn away from the stonework.

Blind Corner On Cycle Path Location: Lawrence Hill, Bristol (England, United Kingdom)

NCN 7 & 75 tight turn for Bells' Bridge. You are just meant to know where they lead to. And watch out for the bricks!

I can't help thinking that this sharp corner could somehow have been avoided.

The concrete path doesn't follow the desire line, and is getting overgrown in the corner.

An unnecessarily abrupt change of direction for path.

The hitherto segregated cycleway turns into a shared-use footway, with an open gutter across the forced desire-line, and into a narrow blind corner at Wallace Street.

Footway cycling provision ends abruptly at sharp corner to return onto carriageway.

The junction of Shields Road and Scotland Street, where the cycle track becomes a shared-use section around the corner to #70770. Anyone wanting to go in a different direction has to use the toucan crossings.

Route sign for cycle route 1 directing cyclists down the complex ramp at the railway station (which has 'Cyclists Dismount' signs here and at #67691), and the starting sign for routes 1e and 1f. It may be better to start the route outside t ... [more]

Sign for cycle route 1 at the new bridge over the railway. The path on the right goes to one of the platforms at Cumbernauld Station.

A very poor section of shared footway on the corner of Quay Road and Glasgow Road.

A blind corner at the path junction.

This narrow and cluttered footway has not really been "converted" to shared-use, merely signed as shared-use. Cyclists are to cross over at this point to the footway on the other side of the road which is marginally less unsuitable for cycl ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/gOeMarpER4A Low Fen Drove Way really feels like the back of beyond. A very quiet and remote spot. It's actually listed as a byway, open to motor vehicles, but I've never seen any. It's just about to get to a m ... [more]

The sign says it's a cycle path, so why the right angled turn?

A lamppost positioned in the worst place possible, in the middle of an already narrow path at a blind corner.

Sharp bend in riverside path around compound

A blind corner on NCN62 path at Aintree

The stupid chicane that was introduced here 10 years ago results in the disappearance of the fence and corner cutting. See #7482.

Needlessly sharp corner on NCN75, on rebuilt path next to new school

See clip at http://youtu.be/hj7q7RLrAx8 This is just a rushed attempt at a pass. When oncoming traffic appears the driver trying to pass me is forced back into me, passing far too close. Also note that I'm just about to turn off the main ... [more]

Needlessly sharp corner at turn from path onto shared use footway of main road, on NCN14.

See clip at http://youtu.be/Yyd-P0pzc1A "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 But, by being less than a foot from me, this is more like careless driving. http://www.driving-law ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/7Jk--xt87Eg The car comes round the corner clearly not expecting anything to be there and has to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting me or the parked car in front of them. I'm on the right side of my lane so I ... [more]

Junction with local path requires cyclists following A89 cyclepath to swerve around lamppost

Double corner where A89 cyclepath switches from being path slightly away from the road to roadside path

No cycling Location: Mortimer Street, Trowbridge.
