A sticker for NCN66 turning off the A63 ahead. A63, Knowsthorpe (England, UK)

A63, Knowsthorpe (England, UK) Rubbish in cycle lane

The start of the cycle track for the Whitemoss Roundabout diverging from the carriageway of Kingsway. It could be extended back along the verge to meet the cycle track from the Birniehill Roundabout.

The Birniehill Roundabout cycle track merges onto the Kingsway carriageway, but there is room for it to continue off-road until the Whitemoss Roundabout where another cycle track starts. Again, tyre tracks in the mud and grass give away the ... [more]

The cycle track leaves the Queensway carriageway in time for the Righead Roundabout. There is plenty of room for it to have been off-road all the way along here.

The Queensway footway changes from asphalt to slabs, and shimmies to the side slightly. The drainage is poor.

The steps on the southwest side of the Queensway footbridge have been shut due to deteriorating concrete, leaving only the steps to the southeast for users. Perhaps it's time this footbridge was replaced.

Not only has the footbridge got steps and no ramp, but it is also in the way of the Queensway shared-use footway.

This is a dual carriageway in the heart of Winchester, notionally 20mph but a horrible road environment for us on the narrow footways.

A short length of painted cycle lane appears next to the cycle lane sign. The previous cycle lane sign didn't have any cycle lane.

Since there is only a shared footway on this side of Saughs Road at this point, anyone using it wanting to go to Robroyston station must go left to cross Saughs Avenue before starting to head towards the station.

This must be a cycle path! Access to ASDA supermarket and retail park from the shared footway at Saughs Road.

The end of the shared footway on Saughs Avenue. But since there is a shared footway across the toucan crossing, there is really no need for the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign. However, the shared footway is far too narrow.

A shared footway and toucan crossing on Saughs Road. The shared footway on this side continues as far as the dead-end turning for a future development, and the footway on the other side of the road becomes shared-use at the crossing.

The shared-use sign seen in #112689 is single-sided, and there is only a dropped kerb crossing on the southwest and southeast sides of the roundabout, not the northeast side.

No crossing from the exit from Robroyston Park to the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Park. The footway on the near side is not shared-use.

Pedestrians not allowed on the cycleway through the tunnel under the shopping mall.

A 'Give Way' for something or other, and lots of money spent paving a footway so that it looks nothing like a cycleway.

The roadworks totally blocking the cycle lanes, presumably what the sign in #112484 referred to.

Temporary roadworks signage hinting at what's to come - the effective end of the cycle lanes through the roadworks zone. The dropped kerb allows cycle access to and from the riverside path, although there is a build-up of mud evident in ... [more]

An overrun area for U-turning vehicles on new Derek Dooley Way gyratory layout, but judging from the tyre marks on the footway, even this is insufficient.

Cycle access to and across Shalesmoor at the end of Bowling Green Street, although the toucan crossing is staggered.

A point to leave the A61 Shalesmoor dual carriageway and turn right using the toucan crossing, or turn left to access Bowling Green Street (at #112466).

Cycle lanes on Shalesmoor, and damage to the footway consistent with pavement parking.

A van parked partly on the footway and totally blocking a cycle lane on Shalesmoor.

Cycle facilities on Shalesmoor.

No cycle infrastructure on Crow Road through Anniesland Cross.

The staggered toucan crossings across Berryknowes Road do not even line up with the path from the flats.

A minimalist crossing put in for the Cardonald Quietway. Basically a patch of asphalt on the central reservation. Slightly diagonal too.

Signage for the Cardonald Quietway on the right-hand side of Linthaugh Road, but not very easy to read from the left-hand carriageway (which, since the footway is not shared-use, is where approaching cyclists should be). Quite frankly, t ... [more]

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet junction.

The A726 dual carriageway approaching the Hurlet.

The A726 dual carriageway between Dykebar and the Hurlet.

The A726 dual carriageway has a continuous footway from the edge of Paisley to the Hurlet and beyond, which could be upgraded to shared-use standard for those that need to use it.

The lack of cycle facilities on the A726 could be addressed by a modest upgrade of the existing footway to shared-use standards. Note that the dropped kerb crossing on the far side of the roundabout has been completed blocked for pedestr ... [more]

The dropped-kerb pedestrian crossing across Hurlet Road, near the roundabout for Grahamston Road.

Damage to pedestrian guard railing on Hurlet Road.

A pedestrian crossing across Hurlet Road, linking Ben Nevis Road to the path to Glenapp Avenue for pedestrians.

No easy way across Hurlet Road from Ben Nevis Road to the path to Strathcarron Drive.

A route sign for NCN7/75 on Linthaugh Road, and cycle only access on Dormanside Road.

Transport options in Bingley.

Despite the crossing at #110453 being a toucan crossing, the next crossing encountered is just a pedestrian crossing. Nelson Street is straight ahead and the first section of footway is shared-use.

The path from the Manchester Road crossing at #110453 takes a diagonal route across the wide central reservation of Croft Street, across to Nelson Street.

An unpleasant crossing point of Hereford's race track of a ring road. At least this is traffic signal controlled and there's some attempt at cycle markings.

An unpleasant crossing point of Hereford's race track of a ring road. At least this is traffic signal controlled and there's some attempt at cycle markings.

This is a bit of a dead end for cycling as there's not a nice way to cross the race track that is this ring road. The subway is No Cycling. The dual carriageway has a railing preventing at grade crossing, and anyway there is aggressive spe ... [more]

Cycle directions for the sliplane shown in #110470 included in a large motoring sign.

A short cycle lane for anyone leaving the dual carriageway in favour of the shared footway and the toucan crossing ahead.

A short piece of cycle lane, with a bus stop unusually in the middle of the junction, on Godwin Street.

A route sign for NCN66 and other destinations at Prince's Way.

Toucan crossing across Prince's Way, with high-level and low-level near-side signals, and also far-side signals.

A van driver pulled over the toucan crossing when he had a green light, but inevitably it turned red before the junction ahead cleared, leaving him blocking the crossing for users.

A continuation of bus priority from the end of the Manchester Road guided busway through the Senior Way junction.

A toucan crossing across the end of the Manchester Road guided busway in Bradford.

NCN66 alongside Manchester Road. On the right, a bus lane to allow buses from the guided busway to overtake the traffic congestion, seen in #110452.

NCN66 alongside A641 Manchester Road dual carriageway. The lamppost needn't be so in the way.

NCN66 crossing Prince's Way on a split toucan crossing.

This is perhaps not how the Dutch would approach a crossing of a main dual carriageway. Give Way to the traffic island?

A bus gate on Nelson Street approaching Hall Ings, and a cycle lane for getting to the toucan crossing across to Channing Way.

A route sign for NCN66 at a split toucan crossing across Hall Ings.

Bradford Capital of Cycling on Hall Ings, with ample cheap car parking above.

The A6181 dual carriageway takes motorists right into central Bradford where there is a huge car park at the shopping mall, with cheap evening parking.

A split toucan crossing across Hall Ings.

A cycle lane on an already hostile road environment blocked by a taxi driver. The cycle lane leads to a slip onto the shared-use area at the toucan crossing.

The contrasting sights of Bradford, looking past the Alhambra Theatre and up the A6181 Prince's Way/Godwin Street dual carriageway.

A shared-use footway alongside Prince's Way that forms part of NCN66. Not especially wide.

Signage for NCN66 at a toucan crossing across Prince's Way, plus an entrance to the Jacob's Well underpass.

The cycleways alongside East Lancashire Road. https://www.mapillary.com/map/im/PUom-JABGnTXzFehU35qeA

The 'cycleway' alongside East Lancashire Road looks narrow and unpleasant from this Mapillary photo taken in a bus. https://www.mapillary.com/map/im/-iFRLs5UOCqjiJOZMpc1HQ

When Drumry Road East was first closed off at the Great Western Road roundabout, the traffic order exempted cycles from the closure. But nothing was done to facilitate cycle access, and even now that there is a shared-use footway on the oth ... [more]

A toucan crossing across from Castle Street to NCN routes 7, 10 and 72, and to the castle itself.

Signage for NCN routes 7 and 10 at the top of the ramp from Viaduct Estate Road. The routes head west to cross Bridge Street and then head east along the far side of the dual carriageway.

The cycle route into East Kilbride crosses Glenburn Way, but ends at the next junction at #31505. Since this road is one-way, a sign to diagram 810 would be appropriate here to inform those crossing.

Give way to a dismantled bus stop?

The cycle route into East Kilbride follows Queensway.

Not only does the cycle route cross Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing, and not a toucan crossing with the extra call buttons, but the sign for the cycle route into East Kilbride is pointing the wrong way! There are no furth ... [more]

The cycle route into East Kilbride crosses Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing.

A split pelican crossing across Redwood Drive, rather than a toucan crossing with extra call buttons, when it forms part of a cycling route. It took a while for the lights to change.

No demand for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts? Pedestrians have their own footway all the way, but cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Evidently, not all do!

No room for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts? Pedestrians have their own footway all the way.

Despite there being room for a cycleway alongside Queensway between Righead and The Murray Roundabouts, cyclists are expected to cycle on the dual carriageway. Pedestrians have their own footway all the way.

The start of the cycle track approaching the Birniehill Roundabout, and the newer path put in for East Kilbride cycle route 2, coming from Mount Cameron Drive North.

Room for the cycle track at Whitemoss Roundabout to continue alongside the dual carriageway to reach Birniehill Roundabout, but instead, the cycle track merges with the A725 Kingsway carriageway. The footway to the left continues roughly ... [more]

The Blantyre to East Kilbride cycle route crosses Kingsway here.

A split toucan crossing across A749 dual carriageway for NCN756 to get to Nerston village en route to Rutherglen and Glasgow.

Motorists: Don't U-turn Cyclists: U-turn The A749 crossing on NCN756 outside the Kingsgate Retail Park, before the cycle route makes its way through Nerston village.

Before route 3's path was built, cyclists were expected to return to the carriageway once past the roundabout.

A white ghost bicycle in memory of someone killed here at the A82/A898 junction. https://www.clydebankpost.co.uk/news/15097952.ghost-bike-appears-in-roadside-tribute-to-cyclists-killed-on-a82-last-year/

Take care at the high speed junction at Mountblow Road.

Duntocher over the footbridge.

The Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82 dual carriageway, with some advance notice for motorists of roadworks in a different county!

Signs for the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82 dual carriageway. The ramp to Glenhead Road replaces steps that were there previously.

A 'No Cycling' sign on what is now the much vaunted Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway alongside the A82 dual carriageway.

A toucan crossing over the A82 at the Kilbowie Roundabout. Are these the lowest call boxes ever, particularly on the far side?

The end of the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway for those heading east. Join the A82 carriageway here.

Quite a lot of work to do on Dumbarton Road outside Clydebank Town hall to get to the artist's impression given in https://www.scottishconstructionnow.com/article/4-3m-project-to-transform-clydebanks-town-centre-links

Dumbarton Road has service roads in front of the houses most of the way between Western Isles Road and Mountblow Road. It wouldn't take the earth to create a cycle link between Old Dalnottar Road (see #107093) and here to form a quietway on ... [more]

Guidance requires: ☑️A pair of signs, for easy visibility from both lanes ☑️900mm diameter, for visibility at high speeds This ensures they are seen by cyclists doing 70mph in the outside lane https://t.co/S00hLs87hw

NCN76 turns right here towards Bo'ness while the Inchyra Road route carries on towards Grangemouth oil refinery (although this is not signed).

A sign with its posts blocking part of the width of the shared-use footway along Inchyra Road. The path clearly predates the sign. If someone is coming the other way, one of you will have to slow down to let the other go first.
