As I've mentioned before (see #107159), this is listed in Glasgow City Council's database of cycle routes.

On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

The path to Stockiemuir Road, and across to the Baljaffray estate, could easily be upgraded for cycling, along with the rest of the route from the Allander Centre.

The new cycleway along St Rollox Drive leads onto this footway which has not been upgraded. It is obstructed ahead by utilities work and the only way onto the road is across the grass. There's also a 'No Cycling' sign on the back of the ... [more]

The shared footway takes people away from Manchester Road and over to Nelson Street, whether they want that or not. It seems some people ride across the grass so presumably they wish to stay with Manchester Road.

A fairly new cycle link on Hopehill Road, including some new green space created by shortening the former carriageway on this side of the closure.

The Stewartfield cycle route leaves Stewartfield Crescent and takes the path. There would appear to be room for a diagonal connecting path to avoid the right angled corners on the path as it is, originally designed for use only by pedestria ... [more]

The original cycle track leads cyclists out onto the busy Whitemoss Road carriageway. But the footway has been made shared use, without a connection being made between the cycle track and the footway to allow transfer onto the shared footwa ... [more]

I saw someone walking across from Applegate Drive when I was further back along Netherton Road, but I see there is no path here.

A route sign for the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route facing a grassy slope with no path across it. The access has been moved further west (see #107502).

The path along the edge of the park disappears under a bush, and because the grass is at the foot of a slope, the grass can get a bit too boggy to cycle on.

Southern entrance to Kingussie Newtonmore Road (the A86), near Kingussie, Badenoch, Scotland

Cycleway and the A86 Newtonmore Road (the A86), near Kingussie, Badenoch, Scotland

A poor quality surface at the start of the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way cycle route and Drumchapel Way walking route. The footway on the Goals access road swaps from the north to the south side at this point.

The Drumchapel Way turns left to join with the Garscadden Way. The Drumchapel Way is a walking route around Drumchapel and the surrounding woodland described at https://forestryandland.gov.scot/images/pdf/rec_pdfs/DrumchapelWoodsLeaflet.pdf

The winter has taken its toll on the Garscadden Way. This is listed as an official cycle route in the council's GIS system at https://glasgowgis.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=0a599fa51e3d4460a615653700769bf7

The path across to the Garscadden Way blocked by fallen branches, but will anyone notice there's a path to be blocked?

No path from the small park to the pedestrian crossing on Western Isles Road.

An abandoned section of old road at Kinneil, with no connecting path to the footway on the new road, although it is not too difficult to walk across the grass.

The road does not extend as far as the flats in Lauderdale Gardens, making room for some grass and trees. But no dropped kerbs at either end of the path to assist with cycling through the area.

A rough track from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss.

The Govan Road shared-use footway crosses sides here, although there is only the presence of a toucan crossing as a clue. As always, the asphalt does not provide a direct route to the crossing, and as the wear on the grass shows people are ... [more]

There appears to be some demand for a ramp to bypass the steps up to Dalmarnock Road.

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

Desire line to Riverside Museum

The inevitable result of placing a barrier in the way of the path and not diverting the path directly to the forced crossing point - a worn path across the grass. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but is that fence panel not meant to be inst ... [more]

I guess they never thought that anyone would cycle to the industrial units, so never thought to install a dropped kerb where the path meets the road. Of course, the majority of users will be going the other way, so why the turn away from ... [more]

The Southern Upland Way woodland path emerges onto an area of grass without a defined path.

The people of Pollok have made their own desire lines clear, and they don't match the official paths.

One of two people on bikes I saw using this section of the Garscadden Way.

The Garscadden Way almost indiscernible approaching the Drumchapel Road crossing. Only the old access barrier gives a clue to it once being a Strathclyde Regional Council cycle route.

The Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way meet and head onwards between the trees. The Drumchapel Way comes along the path from Kinfauns Drive and turns, while the path continues on to Annan Drive. The Garscadden Way comes across the grass from ... [more]

A clear desire line for a ramp to the Clyde Walkway where there is only steps on this side of Dalmarnock Road.

National Cycle Route 41 runs across the grass here, completely unmarked. Possibly the least developed stretch of National Cycle Network in the country. Photo #84310 is from the same spot, looking in the opposite direction.

Cycle parking in the grounds of Linlithgow Palace, where the courtyard is also a car park.

The concrete path doesn't follow the desire line, and is getting overgrown in the corner.

The only way to get a bike through this ridiculous barrier is to go across the grass. And if North Lanarkshire Council thinks they stop motorbikes, they don't. There were several people on riding around on trailbikes in this locality tha ... [more]

With signs for NCN60 on the Hendham Vale path visible in the background, why not create a new path across this grass? See also #72645.

A desire line to join the path from the road in Holyrood Park.

The path around Craigmillar Castle, marked on OSM, is just a worn track in the grass!

So the path around Craigmillar Castle, marked on OSM, turned out to be a worn grass path!

@carsickglasgow @GlasgowCC #desirelines south of Bell's Bridge - lights in wrong place #fastlinkmess http://t.co/YL8GhpktYv

Desire line to Drumossie Avenue across frosty grass.

A new path has been laid between Bells' Bridge and Pacific Drive. A toucan crossing has been provided across Pacific Drive and the adjacent Fastlink busway. They don't meet up and force users to make a zigzag or cut across the grass.

A walking-only section of the John Muir Way on Corstorphine Hill, before it gets really steep.

Quiet grass-centred road around the back of houses avoiding staggered crossroads.

Coldham's Common - the grass is not really suitable for cycling here.

Robust route confirmation marker on the North Calder Heritage Trail, at a point where the path is more grass than path.

Superbly trimmed grass either side of this cycle route across Coldham's Common.

Sunflower Junction A country crossroads on the B936 and NCN 776.
