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.

Pinkston Road still closed as Sighthill redevelopment continues.

The path from the allotments (see #170043) reaches the playing fields car park via this gate. The kerb could be lowered to make it more accessible.

A gate right across the carriageway of Bogside Road, hindering cycling between Millerston and Robroyston. There is no dropped kerb on this side of the gate to enable it to be bypassed using either footway.

Another gate across the road linking the two sides of Robroyston station, and again there's only dropped kerbs on one side of the gate. The next opportunity to leave the footways (which aren't signed as shared use) isn't for a while, either ... [more]

The gate at Robroyston station closes off the full width of the carriageway, and a dropped kerb has been provided on only one side of it to enable cyclists to join the footway and go around it. The nearest dropped kerb on the other side of ... [more]

A gate has been provided across the full width of the road beyond the station. Partly due to its colour, I didn't realise it covered the full width of the road until I'd passed the last opportunity to leave the carriageway and join the (per ... [more]

No way through on the old railway towards Docking

Such a joy to discover the cycle-friendly bridleway connecting Thriplow and Heathfield - making possible an active travel journey from Meldreth to the @IWMDuxford where @CambsCC will be meeting next week. @a10cycle https://t.co/wDPlTYsepE

No progress on rebuilding the south bank path (damaged by subsidence).

Public footpath

Gate used which makes cycle access awkward

Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. Evidently, this is not a popular policy.

Nothing to warn NCN756 and West City Way users that there is a locked gate preventing egress from Kelvingrove Park ahead, and that the nearest way out is onto Kelvingrove Street to the right.

Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. This is one of the gates that was supposed to be left open, yet it is chained and locked shut. Simple for me to divert aroun ... [more]

Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. No disorder was noted in the park today.

Markfield Recreation Ground

Markfield Road, Tottenham Hale The gate was closed, but you can get through by using a gap at the left up a kerb. Dunno why this isn't more cycle-friendly.

Gate to Hobson's Brook path

Oddball at St Aidan's nature reserve

A barrier at Leeds Road, on the Lines Way connection to St Aidan's nature reserve and NCN67.

The Cathkin Braes cycle path crosses a farm access.

An attempt to tidy the area up but flytipping hasn't been eradicated.

Clear signage on the Trans Pennine Trail outside Penistone station.

I'm hoping this gate prompts the removal of the barrier beyond, but Bolton have a love for barriers of all kinds so I wouldn't be surprised if both remained. They are both completely unnecessary and stupid. Ed: also both are likely to b ... [more]

There's a cycleway into this closed-off road but not out - a wasted opportunity.

An awkward piece of path at the entrance to the park at the end of Ben Nevis Road. The combination of vertical and horizontal alignment, and the normally closed gate, make this tricky to cycle. It also doesn't seem to be easy for van driver ... [more]

A gate on NCN7 near the park at the end of Ben Nevis Road. Sometimes it is open, sometimes it is shut.

Just as I was about to leave Victoria Park, I noticed this bollard emblazoned "Park Cycle Route End".

Access between Elder Park and Drive Road hindered by a railing, yet signed (in tiny writing) for cycling.

Gate

A gate and A-frame barrier blocking the way to the National Cycle Network at the far end of Sandal & Agbrigg station car park.

Holehouse Road closed on the approach to the ford, although the ford itself was not overflowing.

The cycle track and walkway on one side of the Erskine Bridge has been closed, but I didn't see any signage to that effect at the bottom of the ramp.

NCN75 goes right through Gourock station, but it doesn't look like anyone is getting in this gate today. A path to the left is really what is needed, allowing access past the station to reach #91054 without dismounting.

A National Cycle Network route wouldn't be complete without a gate.

Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

Same as it ever was https://t.co/IgLR8AuVQL

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.
