A route sign for the college tells people on bikes to dismount and use the pedestrian crossing.

A sign for route 8 tells people on bikes to dismount and use the pedestrian crossing. There is plenty of room to provide a proper cycleway.

So having followed red background signs on the "RR" cycle route I now encounter one with a green background, which are meant to be for the opposite direction.

A route sign completely hidden from view by a larger sign!

The cycle lane on Wester Hailes Road is partially obstructed by vegetation. The surface is also somewhat rough.

I don't know what they were thinking either! The cycle lane has a 'Give Way' at the far end of the bus stop.

Another confused sign for the "RR" cycle route. The red (westbound) direction is given as both straight ahead and U-turn back around the Clovenstone Roundabout.

A dual carriageway ahead, and the start of another section of painted cycle lane.

On my first pass of this junction I saw the "RR" cycle route sign on the right at the last minute and continued to head straight on up the road on the left. However, after seeing no further signs, I came back to this junction for another lo ... [more]

So going back to photo #65669 we see that red is for westbound and green is for eastbound. So what does the top sign mean? Just as well it is almost hidden by the vegetation.

A road closure with bollards and "No Entry except cycles" signs.

Random worn-out painted cycle lanes on a roundabout. Certainly not where I'd position myself on the road!

Sign explaining signs on westbound "RR" cycle route have red backgrounds while eastbound the backgrounds are green. The signs in photo #65672 have the all important directions to be taken at the upcoming junction.

There is plenty of roadspace, but the cycle lanes have stopped, and the motorists are driving too fast, setting off the electronic speed sign.

Cars parked in the cycle lanes on Oxgangs Road. There are no waiting restrictions to prevent this.

The start of the cycle lane on Oxgangs Road, on the "RR" cycle route, but there are parked cars up ahead.

"RR" route sign at Fairmilehead.

The "RR" cycle route carries straight on here.

The first route sign I noticed for the "RR" cycle route since joining at Gilmerton Dykes Street. It isn't even at a junction!

The "RR" cycle route has plenty of roadspace, but it has been arranged for the convenience of motorists, without any thought about cycling!

The junction of the "RR" cycle route with the A701 at Kaimes has nothing more than Advance Stop Lines.

In Gracemount, the "RR" cycle route looks like it is just an ordinary road, with no special cycle infrastructure.

No pedestrian signals for crossing the 70mph Edinburgh City Bypass at the signalised Sheriffhall Roundabout. Horrendous to cross, even on a Saturday afternoon! The sign gives information about the parallel 'RR' cycle route, but without a ... [more]

The junction between Old Dalkeith Road and Melville Gate Road, seen from the shared-use footway from Dalkeith. Cyclists cross the gateway here. On the left can be seen a sign for the Edinburgh City Bypass parallel cycle route (see #60724).

The shared-use footway from Dalkeith approaching the Edinburgh City Bypass where cycling is (not unsurprisingly) prohibited. A parallel cycle route was established, signed with 'RR' signs, but is of variable quality.
