Another 'End of Cycle Route' followed immediately by the continuation of the same cycle route. Slow for and give way to anyone with keys to the gate.

Slow for a sodding gate post? Surely priority signs like those on the adjacent road would be more appropriate.

The entrance to Palacerigg Country Park, where Cumbernauld's cycle route 1 starts. There are no signs for the Cumbernauld cycle network within the park, although there is a map (see #102067).

A gate across half the path into the K-Woodlands.

A gate to get into the K-Woodlands, but with a bike-friendly opening lever.

The end of the Stewartfield Way cycle route, from Kingsgate to the National Museum of Rural Life. The bollards were a little tight, especially so close to the turn onto the crossing.

The gap to the side of the gate would be easier to use if all the other debris was removed. There's another gate up next to the golf course club house, but all is neat and tidy there.

NCN27 signage offering a mountain bike option to Knowle ¾

A barrier across the path between Donald's Quay and The Saltings. It's always worth checking whether the gate is locked or not. At this point, the path is running along the formation of a former railway line.

A gate across Monymusk Place, on the Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way. The Garscadden Wood path starts on the right a short distance beyond the gate.

A big improvement on the old crossing, which required you to lift the bike over. These gates appear to be controlled by magnetic lock (I didn't look closely but there's an odd lump on the side of each one).

The dropped kerb to access Beardmore Community Park is not best placed.

A barrier at the entrance to The Saltings local nature reserve from the car park. There is another barrier further along the path, between The Saltings and Donald's Quay.

A rather uninviting entrance to the Thomas Wood Path at Duntocher.

I'm not sure what the legal status of this route is but you can open the gate to reach the quieter service road. This is a useful shortcut if you're headed west, toward Lymn.

Woodgate Valley Country Park - exit to West Boulevard Location: , Birmingham City (England, United Kingdom) The crossing here leads onto the Bourn Brook Walkway (Wentworth Way Open Space or as the Bournvale Walk). It then leads onto C ... [more]

The John Muir Way heads across to the Union Canal from New Hallglen Road.

The road towards Callendar Woods at New Hallglen Road.

Towpath cycleway

An entrance to the Callendar Woods from Kemper Avenue, with a gap to the side of a locked gate.

Cycle barrier. Rounded shape enables a normal bike to be wheeled through, but it would be difficult with a tandem or trailer.

The old road under the old railway bridge has been closed to motor vehicles, but remains open to cycling and walking into the Kinneil Estate.

The John Muir Way leaving a car park at the Kinneil end of the Bo'ness waterfront section.

The John Muir Way in Bo'ness has been resurfaced with smooth asphalt, and solar LED catseyes for lighting. However, the level crossing kissing gates remain.

Access to cycle route through Queen's Park to sports centre

Risk your life crossing the busy A69, or take a long diversion via and underpass. This scene a few years earlier #37106.

An assortment of barriers at the entrance to Stanrigg Memorial Park, so just as well the gate had been left open!

Stretford Manchester A simple #quickwin solution to widen a gap but not too wide to allow 4 wheeled motor vehicles through. The gate is locked in a partially open position 'ajar' #ajar

Another barrier in Summerford Park.

I'm not sure who is welcome to Summerford Park. I had to turn my handlebars sideways and lift the front wheel to get through this.

Such a good route it is too. Would never have realised it ended without the sign. @bollocksinfra https://t.co/wsgsLcTiKR

There's a 'give way' at each field access, but there's little chance you'll actually need to give way to anything. The new kerbs appear to be stuck onto the carriageway and have come adrift in some places.

A gate with gaps both sides protecting the access path from Great Western Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. The curved walls are similar to gateways created at a number of cycle path accesses around Glasgow.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

The riverside path meets Yoker Ferry Road at the ferry slipway.

An expensive farm access road over the M8 motorway to Shawhead Farm.

The farm access road and cycle route adjacent to the M8 motorway.

The foot and cycle bridge over the M8 motorway and A8 dual carriageway to the Showcase Cinema and Kirkwood, but why the gate?

A locked gate and a bumpy track beyond. Although there is no sign to say where this leads, anyone exiting here is furnished with cycling directions (see #99821).

The Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 1 turns along this path to Craigmarloch, but there's no dropped kerb at the entrance. The 'No Through Road' sign could do with an 'except cycles' plate.

The new kissing gate (replacing #51060) has been blocked by Heras fencing. Wonderful! There is meant to be a cycle route being constructed between Calderbank and Eurocentral, coming through here.

A gate across the path to Coatbridge Road. See also #99722.

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

Rogerfield Road is still blocked by a gate, although able-bodied pedestrian access is clearly possible. A poor show considering the Core Path status it received.

A barrier and kissing gate across the path in the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A barrier and kissing gate across the path in the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

Car parking at the entrance to the Monkland Canal towpath. One more and access to the kissing gate (beyond car) becomes very tricky.

Road crossing at Paddock Street on the alignment of the Monkland Canal.

A secure gate blocking access to the Dams to Darnley Country Park at Patterton.

The farm at Patterton was provided with a bridge over the M77 motorway when it was built, but now the farm has been abandoned, the bridge is blocked by a gate at the far side, preventing access to the Dams to Darnley Country Park.

According to Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, the Patterton Park & Ride site was not just for Patterton rail station but was to become "one of the major access points in the [Dams to Darnley] country park". But now the farm has been a ... [more]

The Pipe Track provides an off-road route between Blanefield and Killearn, but has a rough surface throughout and lots of gates. That said, if you use a suitable bike it is useable and has some good views across the valley. However, this la ... [more]

I'm guessing that as part of the proposed cycle route along Jura Street, this entrance to Bellahouston Park will be rebuilt to include a wider gate and better path around the back of the bowling green pavilion.

Now that the excellent new ramp next to Victoria Bridge has been built, the gates that so often blocked the former route of NCN75 (see #31366) seem to be left open much of the time.

An interesting bollard, but access to the cycle path from the carriageway of Cotton Street involves either cycling along the footway or bumping the low kerb and going through the dirt.

A back lane between Victoria Park Gardens South and Marlborough Avenue signed as a recommended route for cyclists. There is a gate across part of the width of the lane (just visible) to stop through motor traffic.

I found this gate ajar and went to get a view of the Chisholm Trail construction.

Exit from the Lea River Regional Park to Cheshunt station

The entrance to the towpath from Fen Road is unwelcoming.

The link between the River Cam Towpath and Fen Road is a narrow gap.

Track crossing cycle path, leaving Callander

The Fastlink busway was built without any dropped kerbs outside the Festival Park gate, hindering cycle access between the Science Centre and Festival Park. The footway here is to be converted to shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

The A-frame on the path to Overtoun House was just wide enough for my handlebars.

Building works at Partick Bus Station have meant that the point where cyclists join Merkland St carriageway has now been closed, and cyclists are forced to share a narrow footway already obstructed by (unrelated) scaffolding. However, t ... [more]

New gate heading towards Stannington on cycle path. Bit fiddly when on bike but nicer than going up side of A1.

Gated access for NCN(45) and you're asked to dismount on this section for 150 metres.

The gates have been locked shut across the Kelvin Cycleway/NCN756 for the duration of a dinosaurs event in Botanic Gardens.

Old Dumbarton Road with the cycleway on the far side, passing an old gate.

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route crosses the zebra crossing across Auldhouse Road, then heads up Holeburn Road.

This route has been closed because of the construction across the street.

Urmston in Trafford MBC the kissing gate is inadequate for cycles. This is on a proposed cycle link route and sadly the kissing gate is to be retained and the horse stiles renewed !! (in small writing on the draft drawing. UPDATE SEE #1003 ... [more]

@Sustranslation @bollocksinfra @sustrans @StirlCycleHub NCN, Fallin. What kind of hell is this? There's 2 of these cages just 100m apart. https://t.co/1pDvVDiR1J

A horse-jumping style barrier and kissing gate at the end of the path alongside Banton Loch, but the barrier was unlocked so could be opened.

The path alongside the Bishopbriggs side of the canal is quite muddy in places. On the right, a gate across access to the Thomas Muir Trail path across the Bishopbriggs Burn.

Largely pointless gate and step-through bypass.

A gate across the lane leading to the narrow Thomas Muir Trail path. Passing this is easier than negotiating the path ahead.

I guess this may be temporary, but the park needs a gate that doesn't force anyone on a bike to mount the kerb.

It seems the designer expects cyclists to cross to the park using the toucan crossing away to the right, rather than crossing the centre of the junction. Coming from the park there are no push-buttons for the crossing at the park gate.

Previously locked central gate removed, removing need for cyclists to open sprung side gate. Planter boxes obstruct central gate enough to prevent motor vehicle access, but not enough to stop footway parking alongside. See also #85471.

A gate narrower than the road, enabling cycles to enter/exit the Walks from the south easily. Very simple yet underrated infrastructure.

National Cycle Route 41 runs through this gate and along the edge of the field. Photo #84311 is from the same spot, looking in the opposite direction.

Choice of by-way or bridleway. We chose the bridleway. It looks well-cared-for here, and the sign asks you to kindly close the gate.

Kissing gates at railway crossing on John Muir Way.

Barrier at the Ardochrig Road entrance to the Whitelee Wind Farm (and pothole!). The track ceases to be asphalt once past the gate.

Barrier at the end of this road then its a dirt track.

No passage here to Abercorn if you miss previous turn of 76

Temporary access to Fitz Park, Keswick, for cyclists towards Crosthwaite Road, pending post-Storm Desmond repairs

A gate across route 3 at Broom Road.

No sign where the Cumbernauld Cycle Network's route 3 turns right, but instead a gate to guide you the right way.

Route 1 from Auchinstarry to Croy and Cumbernauld starts with a gate.
