A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign before the end of this section of the Levern Walkway path.

The shared footway alongside the A8 between Bishopton and Renfrew, passing a farm. This had quite a bit of grit on the footway and could do with a sweep.

The Levern Walkway starts at the gap in the wall on the left, just beyond the bridge. Some signposting would be useful.

The Levern Walkway recommencing, just off Glasgow Road.

The Levern Walkway at Carlibar Road, at park entrance, and the nearest dropped kerb for cycling from the road.

Park entrance with chicane barriers and no dropped kerb.

The Levern Walkway joins this lane before continuing eastwards, but is not on this person's route.

[Image taken 13.2.23] Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. The location of the cycle parking in relation to the entrance to this supermarket. Close. But when there are cars parked in the spaces (and the non-space) you can’t see it. Plus the … [more]

Still no dropped kerb at the Panmure Gate entrance to the award-winning Claypits Local Nature Reserve.

The end of the Sighthill Avenue cycleway approaching Springburn Road. Don't be tempted to go through the archway, since there is a step on the other side!

[Image taken 17.9.22] Screwfix, James Street, York. [Note: No street view at this location.] In the around 10 minutes I was here today, this driver obstructed the entrance... as did this one: #186208. Such entitlement, such selfishness, is … [more]

No dropped kerb to join the start of the West Highland Way path at Ellangowan Road. The nearest is off to the left.

A barrier across the entrance to the Craigdhu Wedge path. There is a dropped kerb to the right. The banner can cause visibility problems.

Missing bollards where Garriochmill Road becomes the Kelvin Walkway, with graffiti obscuring the sign. Yet other sections of the Kelvin Walkway have multiple barriers in the name of attempting to prevent access for motorbikes.

No path connection between the road crossing and the entrance to Hogganfield Park. Have to bump kerb and cross grass. This is a signed walking and cycling route, the Seven Lochs Trail.

[Image taken 26.6.22] Currys, Rawcliffe/Clifton Moor, York. I took the image to illustrate that for cycle parking to be useful and used, it has to be near the destination. Not least at a location people will have luggage - cycle baggage is … [more]

[Image taken 25.5.22] Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. Car parks are polluted and unpleasant places. They are also potentially dangerous for everyone moving around outside of a car (and stressful for a driver inside). All too often … [more]

[PROBLEM 13.2.23: Racks obstructed by parked vehicle: #191082] [Image taken 25.5.22] Waitrose, Foss Islands Road, York. My first email to Waitrose asking for further and better spaced provision is dated Monday, 14 March 2016. In May 2022 … [more]

A Scottish Power van parked blocking the entrance to a path that links to the Kelvin Walkway.

Not the main entrance to National Trust's Belton House, but you can get in here between 9:30 and 4pm - strictly as the gate is automatically controlled.

The Bunhouse Road cycleway priority crossing as seen from the car park. Restricted visibility, tiny Give Way markings and an offside information sign.

Priority has returned to the Bunhouse Road cycleway at the car park entrance, but has been indicated by a random use of miniature Give Way markings as the only indication of this.

The entrance to the NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path at Hayburn Street.

Several of the entrances to Drumchapel Park have no dropped kerbs available to leave the carriageway, and also have railings hindering access. This is one of the shorter ones. The railing on the corner of Hecla Avenue makes it too difficult … [more]

[Image taken 18.9.21] KFC, Clifton Moor retail park, York. The two Sheffields (racks) are close to the restaurant entrance - good practice. See also: #174311, #174312. Other images today: #174305 and links.

[Image taken 9.9.21] Lidl, James Street, York. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Other image here: #167030. The cycle parking is accessible - not least as there are no parking spaces blocking it. It can therefore be used by people … [more]

Even this rebuilt entrance crossing does not have dropped kerbs for pedestrians.

[Image taken 31.8.21] Yearsley Pool, York. A mobility scooter fits into the racks. Unlike motorcycles these do not create air or noise pollution or intimidate people on foot or cycles. I was pleased to see this. The pool has a hoist and … [more]

[Image taken 31.8.21] Yearsley Pool, York. All racks at the pool in one image. Other images another day and local issues see also: #173598 and links. Other image here today: #173666. Other images taken today: #173662 and links.

[Image taken 23.8.21] Yearsley pool, Haley's Terrace, York. Good practice: Sheffield racks and just a couple of metres from the entrance (adjacent to the blue door in the image). They are empty as the pool was closed. Further images this … [more]

[Image taken 23.8.21] Yearsley pool, Haley's Terrace, York. Good practice: Sheffield racks. This is a small number of cycles compared with pre-covid use: ie (a) when you didn't need to book for a swim) and (b) during afterschool child … [more]

[Image taken 23.8.21] Yearsley pool, Haley's Terrace, York. Good practice: Sheffield racks, easy to find - next to the entrance, under cover, and (sadly necessary) with signs advising people to lock their cycles. The image was taken when … [more]

The path around the back of the pitches at Whitecrook Park is not surfaced, but leads to an entrance on North Elgin Street.

Cycle parking at the entrance to Whitecrook Park, but a metal maze to get through to get to it, unless you go around the end of the fence.

The Balgrayhill Road entrance to Springburn Park. In the background can just be made out the railing of the path from Lenzie Place down to Lenzie Terrace, but it has steps, so is of little use for cycling. So anyone cycling from here has to … [more]

Overlapping barriers making it difficult to cycle into the park from the now shared-use footway.

The Garscube Road cycle track at the entrance to the Oakbank Trading Estate. There is a flashing LED cycle sign, but this one didn't light up, unlike one further south.

Again I forgot to approach this gate on the footway, since there is no dropped kerb to assist with getting around it from the carriageway. Update 2022: See #188011 where dropped kerbs have been provided.

[Image taken 13.6.21] Marygate car park, York. This driver was blocking the entrance/exit here. As I approached to take a photo a woman hopped over the fencing close to the hoardings as someone did yesterday (see: #170083). The exits are … [more]

[Image taken 12.6.21] Marygate car park, York. With no obvious entrance/exit and the nearest 'sometimes' gap blocked (see: #170083) this chap with child stepped over. Not everyone can. And people with kit (cycles, pushchairs, or … [more]

[Image taken 12.6.21] Marygate car park, York. The gap between the car park and the route to/from Bootham and schools in one direction and Scarborough Bridge/rail station in the other was blocked again. You can see someone climbing over the … [more]

[More recent image: #170159] [Image taken 25.5.21] Marygate car park, York. The access/exit is narrow. It is reduced to just 96cm by the foliage that has not been cut back. More exits images here today see: #169690 and links. Noticeboards: … [more]

The way into Malls Mire is via the forecourt of the nursery building.

[Image taken 3.2.20] Lidl, James Street, York. The Sheffield (racks) are easy to find, recognise as cycle parking and access. They are under cover. They are in a well lit location. You do not need to cross road to move between them and the … [more]

[Image taken 6.4.21] Lidl, James Street, York. Note: No streetview at this location. Two issues. Problem 1. The cycle parking is nowhere near the trolleys or the supermarket entrance/exit - see: #167030. Problem 2. The cycle parking is on a … [more]

No Lorries allowed in Cowlairs Park.

Well placed cycle parking by the entrance of the friendly Cambridge Wine Merchants on Cherry Hinton Road.

The Cathkin Braes cycle path ends at the entrance to the country park, but could extend further to connect with the junction of the road to Rogerton.

No dropped kerb at this entrance to Maxwell Park. It would suit a raised crossing across to the station entrance opposite.

The southern entrance to Drumpellier Country Park on the A752.

The Seven Lochs Trail turns from the A752 into Drumpellier Country Park. The signs here make no mention of the Seven Lochs Trail. There is a dropped kerb here, but it is partly blocked by a mangled railing installed across it.

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

An entrance to the Bishop Loch section of the Seven Lochs Trail at Auchingill Road.

Entrance to the next section of the Seven Lochs Trail. (Close-up in #112952.)

The entrance to Robroyston railway station.

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.
