The cycle route joins a path.

Car park entrance on Rothesay Street. Also leads to the cycle parking at #107435.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street ends in a car park at the Clydebank Health Centre.

The Drumchapel Way on The Antonine Road.

The start of the Lincoln Avenue cycle track, seen from the opposite direction to #101264.

Absolutely perfect timing. @GoBikeGlasgow @UofGsustain @PeopleByresRoad #paintIsNotProtection https://t.co/LENi1rbIkA

Painted cycle lanes don’t work, especially if the council just keeps turning a blind eye to those who abuse it. I tried to speak to the guy in the car and ask why he thought it was okay for him to park there, no response. @GoBikeGlasgow ... [more]

How am I supposed safely cycle up this street if cars are parked in the contraflow cycle lane, forcing me into on coming traffic? @GlasgowCC @AnnaLangside https://t.co/jcbx6GVDyv

Entitled driver's reaction to #carfreeday https://t.co/E6vXC6RfX1

I was surprised to see this sign at the newly rebuilt Partick Bus Station. The pedestrian crossing around the corner has been removed. Non-bus traffic has to use this lane past Partick Bus Station, but a left turn is required to get to t ... [more]

The main road around Falkirk town centre doesn't look very cycle-friendly.

The Dyke Road cycleway ends at a new toucan crossing which provides a connection to Speirshall Close. There were new 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs in Speirshall Close, but I couldn't work out where they were leading. NCN7 can be ... [more]

The Dyke Road cycleway at the Craggan Drive junction. Although the cycleway markings suggest the cycleway has priority, the 'give way' markings at the kerbline have not been refreshed and there is a danger drivers from Craggan Drive will pu ... [more]

The space-wasting hatching on Dyke Road has been removed and a cycleway installed instead.

I skidded to a halt to take photo #101275. Didn't expect that.

The spacing of the orcas changes opposite the junction of Moorhouse Avenue to accommodate turns to and from the cycleway.

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, with a staggered uncontrolled pedestrian crossing.

A bus stop bypass on Lincoln Avenue, next to Knightswood Park. Most bus passengers will be alighting at this stop rather than boarding. Looking back at my photos of this route, I notice that only this section has the 'No Loading' kerb ma ... [more]

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue. If you don't want to turn left into Archerhill Road you need to leave the cycleway, but there's nothing to say this.

The new cycle track in Lincoln Avenue, past the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. This bit looks like it may be prone to flooding.

The bus stop impasse (seen in #99495) has now been painted up. A closeup of the dropped kerb can be seen in #100294.

I was expecting something a little more physical for separation than just paint, but maybe it's not finished yet. UPDATE: Orcas have since been installed.

Arriving and departing at Govan Cross.

Milnpark Street - no through route to Cornwall Street, and no vehicular access to Milnpark Gardens either. No attempt to cater for cycling. As for those road markings in the foreground - they worked well!

No enforcement of the Argyle Street contraflow cycle lane.

A dropped kerb is to be added for access to the toucan crossing. Surely something that should have been done when this layout was originally built.

I despair - pavement, double yellow lines and right by a major cycle route - in Leith this morning https://t.co/Dcssr3FgcY

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx

Haw @EastRenCouncil your bike lanes in the door zone are bad enough but this really is taking the piss! Move the sign please. https://t.co/6BHe6XluMf

It's the widest zebra crossing I've ever seen, but why are the Belisha Beacons covered up?

The kerb shown in #65650 has had an asphalt ramp added so what was meant to be a high quality gateway now looks a bit botched! A bollard has been removed and the motorists are taking advantage of the unenforced double yellows.

The cycleway through Ravenscraig crosses the access road to the sports centre. Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles are used on this section, rather than the correct flat-topped 'cycleway' type, and placed so close to the crossing that people on bike ... [more]

A damaged route sign at Cadzow Lane, and the van parked on the cycle path from #89518.

Some Sighthill diversion signs that are still in place, and some illegal parking outside the Police Station.

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

NCN 7 leaves the Esplanade for a path across Low Green, only to return to the Esplanade further along.

Some mandatory cycle lanes on the Esplanade that fill up with parked cars in summer. A continuous segregated lane right the way along the Esplanade, such as there is in Southend, may be more appropriate.

When are we going to do something about illegal parking in Bury? Yellow lines & cycle lane are there somewhere! https://t.co/8SmrSX3Izt

And hoping anyone trying out the National Cycle Network 90 on Lewes Rd is good at expectation management... https://t.co/Mol2xCOi5I

If only police did follow this van... @GlasgowUni @carsickglasgow https://t.co/mrVSsWn7Yi

A new contraflow cycle lane on Cardonald Place Road ahead, but no exemption for cycles from the mandatory turn into Cardonald Gardens. In the distance, cars parked in the contraflow lane, just like in #71119.

Blocked cycleway outside garage.

Lots of footway parking and another car in the cycleway, outside car garage. Since there are 3 lanes on the road, why not create a parking bay on this side of the road, reducing traffic lanes to one each way? This problem isn't going to van ... [more]

Buffer strip on edge of shared-use footway outside Scotland Street School museum not actually wide enough to give full protection from opening car doors, and double yellow lines don't mean there will never be opening car doors there.

Three coaches from Allander Travel parked partly on the footway, on double yellow lines and completely blocking the Colleges Route cycle lane on University Avenue.

Confirmation that NCN1 has come through this way, after very poor signage at junctions such as at #70482. Clearly the 'No Vehicles' signs and waiting restrictions are not vigorously enforced here.

New cycle lanes starting well in Cardonald @GlasgowCC http://t.co/2umMqLrDCp

At the end of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial there is a final traffic island with bollards, and the an advisory cycle lane continues until the Calder Street junction. The cycle lane passes a wide depot entrance.

Stage 5 of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial consists of orcas between the cycle lane and the rest of the carriageway, after another traffic island.

Stage 4 of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial has armadillos in between the cycle lane and the rest of the carriageway. The stuck-on catseyes are replaced with flush-mounting solar LED lights.

Although probably not a serious problem, the low-profile barrier seen in #71088 is starting to lose its white edging strip.

Stage 3 of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial sees this low-profile continuous barrier between the cycle lane and the rest of the carriageway. Some minor damage to this barrier can be seen in #71089.

Stage 2 of the Aikenhead Road cycle lane trial has a whole load of bollards, the first two of which are on a small traffic island.

The sign announcing the Aikenhead Road "Cycle Lane Separator Trail". I assume they mean trial. The bus stop has not been provided with a bypass.

The start of the experimental cycle lane in Aikenhead Road, with one solid and one broken line, hatching and stuck-on catseyes (except for the one that came unstuck). More information at http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=165 ... [more]

A contraflow cycle lane on Cleland Street, but not Bedford Lane across the junction.

The segregated cycleway is replaced by a shared-use footway opposite the Carnoustie Street junction. A dropped kerb has been provided, presumably for any cyclist joining the route from Carnoustie Street.

On-road cycle lanes on King Street, with the westbound side being in the doorzone of a parking lay-by outside Royal Burgh House.

Back onto the carriageway for the final section of King Street.

The official link between the Union Canal and Cultins Road, which has both a double yellow line and a white line across the dropped kerb.

A large mini-roundabout with double yellow lines around the centre circle!

@bollocksinfra @YPLAC #Celebrate20 and then two more cops sail past. Glasgow- parking on the double yellows is fine http://t.co/ZH0rbVS33n

Any chance @BrightonHoveCC can do something about people parking in the cycle lane on Lewes Road? http://t.co/gFeBziG30K

Titanic Quarter's finest! A cycle lane barely the width of the double yellows underneath. At least it's mandatory! http://t.co/LwGOSSIJww

Solid white line,double yellows, green paint,armadillos and there's still one parked on the cycle lane #Churchstreet http://t.co/7nFYlPffve

Users of the Millburn Active Travel Route are expected to leave King Duncan's Road at the dropped kerb before the start of the crash barrier, then use the footway and U-turn down the steep ramp at the end of the wire fence. Check your brake ... [more]

I'm guessing westbound cyclists are meant to rejoin the road at this dropped kerb, but there's nothing to say.

@POPScotland here's the bike lane on waterloo st glasgow this afternoon. and aye, that is a warden sauntering by. http://t.co/ikhVWmHNnY @sintaygaleska @POPScotland Must admit I'd be asking the warden if they were going to do something a ... [more]

A mandatory cycle lane on Myrtle Street, approaching segregated traffic signals. Traffic is busier on the other side of the junction, but no cycle facilities have been provided for the opposite direction.

Cycle lanes on Crown Street.

An advisory cycle lane citybound only.

Car driver briefly parking in cycle lane with double yellow lines.

Signage for Liverpool Radial Route 3 on Norton Street. No cycle facilities other than an Advance Stop Line. Again, the motorist sign is far bigger than the cycle sign.

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.

Signage for NCN810 in Canterbury Street, and a bike hire docking station.

Long speed cushions on Princes Parade.

"Strictly no cyclists on pavement" Perhaps cyclists who've not brought their bikes are exempt. It doesn't say. Plus 25mph speed limit.

So here's silver VW van SCO8 YTV parked in the bike lane on Howard St @policescotland @carsickglasgow http://t.co/LStuwSo581

An entrance to the Gravesend Ferry Terminal, leading to the West Street Pier directly, and via a riverside path to the Town Pier where most departures to Tilbury now leave from (see also #61845).

This narrow unmarked lane may be a cycle lane, on the approach to a pinch-point road narrowing at the pedestrian crossing.

A variety of route signs at junction on The Terrace

Contraflow cycle lane on Royal Terrace.

Signage for the cycle parking at Leigh-on-Sea station

The St Enoch Square bike hire terminal, next to the Howard Street contraflow lane, which still has a car parking problem.

The Fastlink segregated bus road, for local buses only. No cycling allowed. NCN75 runs behind the wall on the right, along a shared-use path on the riverside, which becomes an obstacle course further along.

It didn't take the motorists long to start parking on the widened shared-use footway on Lancefield Quay

A car and a van parked on double yellow lines, the shared-use footway, and blocking the dropped kerb where cyclists are expected to join the roadway. But there isn't any enforcement around here.

A temporary sign that has not been placed on the cycleway.

Barrier across access to path to Edinburgh Park station, with dropped kerb and narrow gap at side. This will be busy with commuters at peak times, unlike this weekend view.

Cycle lanes on McDonald Road, with speed hump.

No dropped kerb at the foot of ramp. This is the way cyclists coming over the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge would come if heading for the Morrison's supermarket at Gallowgate.

Traffic calming by cobbled speed cushion!

Line of shared-use footway obstructed by parked advertisement trailer at abandoned petrol station.

Car parking at point where shared-use footway cycleway crosses over Old Dumbarton Road. Google Streetview shows Double Yellow Lines on the roadway here before resurfacing.

Southbound on Strand Road, cyclists are expected to ride on the footway and dismount to cross the level crossing. None did in the time I was there.

The cycle lane bends to allow cyclists a crossing across the railway track that is closer to a right angle, to minimise the risk of being thrown off.

Car parked on double yellow lines across dropped kerb at canal access, and no cycling allowed on short buses and coaches only road.

Car parked on double yellow lines, partly blocking dropped kerb, and lots of leaves lying on footway where cyclists will need to make a tight turn going to and from the Anderston "Bridge To Everywhere" approach ramp.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign approaching a road junction on the Wirral Circular Trail
