A route sign for the Neilston to Barrhead cycle route on Kelburn Street. No indication of whether cyclists should use the footway or road. A toucan crossing is provided on this side of the junction.

Traffic at the Kelburn Street/Neilston Road junction. This is the nearest dropped kerb to the sign in #194605, and there are no shared-use signs further down the hill. Some sides of the crossing have toucan crossing displays, others do not, … [more]

The first sign to say this footway is shared use is hidden by a tree. No invitation to leave the carriageway to join it, and the nearest dropped kerb is back at the previous junction. The shared footway is not particularly wide, and … [more]

The Old Dumbarton Road cycleway appears to be nearing completion at long last, and is getting used. Lining still to be done on this section.

Ninetree Hill, off Stokes Croft, Bristol

Bad tree root damage to the path down from Campbell Street to the Stockingfield Bridge. While not ever going to be a main access route, it is still one that will be used by local people and this damage should have been addressed.


Brocco Street, Sheffield

Even e-bikes need pushing up this hill in Conques

Plean Street Pyramid at the end of Plean Street.

Hilly Huddersfield

Bollards in the path on the approach to the connection to Courthill.

Nearing the top of the hill, and the end of the upgraded section of path. A couple of bollards have been placed in the path next to a path junction.

The section of the path from Stockiemuir Avenue to Drymen Road that has been upgraded. The gradient increase can be seen in the background.

A public bridleway to the Festival of Britain bridge #110367 over the River Aire.

A bus gate on Church Bank.

Cyclist winds out of Ross-on-Wye towing motor traffic while our double decker bus waits it’s turn.

The Leeds & Liverpool Canal towpath approaching the Three Rise Locks in Bingley. The path is quite steep here for a short distance. Half way up the locks, a ramped footbridge leads across the dual carriageway to Keighley Road in Bingley.

Altar Lane is a no through road, except for motorcycles and cycles.

After a brief piece of asphalt at the railway access point, the path reverts to a soggy soft surface for the unexpectedly steep climb.

Arrotshole Road path climbs up towards the Morrison's supermarket, with other paths connecting at various points.


Hilly Devon - still a bit of a way to go to the summit.

The junction between the ramped paths up to the Erskine Bridge, and in the foreground the path under the Erskine Bridge which links to Kilpatrick station and a park.

@morebikesplease @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain Here was two weeks ago. It's almost like there's a pattern...! Just shows the lack of consideration given to cycle infra that paint is even considered an option here. Anyone who uses the road … [more]

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain

The HArTT cycle route goes down this steep slope to the Union Canal (see #101156). A new sensibly graded ramp has been built to the right (see #101153).

The path alongside the Westquarter Burn suddenly gets rather steep for the climb back up to New Hallglen Road. More like a mountain biking route than a local cycle network route!

The destination sign points to the HArTT cycle route's destinations of Callendar Park and the Falkirk Wheel as being up the path to Ash Grove but the HArTT cycle route badge points right along the path to the Westquarter Glen. See also … [more]

A decent quality bridge across the Westquarter Burn, and the path up to Polmont Road, both part of the HArTT cycle route.

The path linking Laurieston to the Helix park, at the top of the hill down to the A9 crossing at #102863.

A good surface but could do with a sweep.

Cycle parking at the top of the steep bit of the hill, saves having to pedal back up if the bike is already at the top. But some proper stands at the shopping centre entrance would be better.

This path appears to have been forgotten about.

Broken path surface and broken glass on the climb up from Drumoyne Road to the Craigton Road underpass.

Footway parking along Nithsdale Road on the climb up from Dumbreck station.

Steep decent through Achran Forest

A questionable bit of routing sends NCN 57 up/down a steep hill here. People may prefer to use the two straighter shallower roads to reach Wheatley slightly slower but with less effort.

Car parking in the Clarence Drive cycle lanes at rush-hour.

Sign reads: "CYCLING DOWN THIS HILL IS DANGEROUS" This tweet has a similar photo.

A simple road closure that allows cycles through.

Before long the asphalt ends and the path alongside the railway line gets hillier.

The asphalt gives way to this loose rocky surface on the slope down towards Nether Croy.

Closed off road leading down steep hill to Hendham Vale.

Steep section of road closed off to motor traffic with bollards at #72771 and #72773.

Nearly there! The path nears Cumbernauld town centre.

Colston Hill

The start of the King Duncan's Road cycle lanes in Raigmore Estate.

The cycle lanes on King Duncan's Road leave so little room for other traffic that they are largely ignored by drivers. Sightlines are poor around the bend and on hill, so centre line removal isn't really an option. This is the main road … [more]

The point where cyclists are meant to leave the roadway is fortuitously just beyond the point where most pedestrians leave the footway to go down the steps to Old Perth Road. However, there's no indication what first-timers are meant to do, … [more]

Users of the Millburn Active Travel Route are expected to leave King Duncan's Road at the dropped kerb before the start of the crash barrier, then use the footway and U-turn down the steep ramp at the end of the wire fence. Check your … [more]

The cycle lanes on King Duncan's Road continue to the foot of the hill. The junction with the dual carriageway is restricted Left On Left Off.

A steep ramp connecting Old Perth Road and King Duncan's Road, part of the Millburn Active Travel Route. At least it has been gritted.

There is a lift near the pier between the Western Esplanade/Marine Parade and the end of the High Street. There is also a hair-pin path behind the lift which one person cycled up while I was there. Also visible are the 20mph speed limit … [more]

Worsted Street near Copley Hill. Fantastic, all year riding route here. See clip at

The final section of the ascent of Corstorphine Hill, which becomes unrideable.

The top of the track seen in #59019.

A steep track up Corstorphine Hill. The tarmac doesn't last.

Perhaps a bit late to be telling cyclists coming down the hill in King's Park to go slow!

Local cycle route no 15 at North Foreland Thanet. Car drivers using the shared use cycle path and footway at North Foreland hill as an impromtu parking place because the official car park is full/costs money?. The path was built because the … [more]

Location: Egton Bridge, North Yorkshire Moors. Another ridiculous gradient, this time as I was heading into Egton.

The section of the Colleges Cycle Route that goes up and under the motorway sliproads at St George's Cross. Barriers, gradients, last autumn's leaf-fall. Not surprisingly many cyclists choose to go through the stopped up section of New City … [more]
