The route sign at the Bowline junction, east of Bowling. NCN7 is now signed via the new Bowline route, while NCN754 continues along the canal towpath. In the Clydebank direction, NCN7 is incorrectly shown in brackets.

A choice of routes approaching Bowling.

A sign advising of the diversions for NCN routes 7, 75 and 756, facing people heading away from the diversions.

So is the diversion for NCN7 straight ahead, or left?

Fallen signs on the path, and temporary signs that aren't too helpful (see #175562).

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

No clearance of any of the muck covering up part of the NCN7 path next to the Clydeside Expressway.

A busy footway that cyclists have been directed to use as part of the COP26 diversion route.

"Diversion cyclists dismount" on Waterloo Street. No explanation as to where the diversion leads (other than an NCN7 emblem), or any obvious reason why cyclists might need to dismount. There were no further signs to be seen further along th ... [more]

I was surprised at how flimsy this barrier was, compared to all the others. Maybe there's a wall of steel barrier further on.

A COP26 diversion sign on Old Dumbarton Road.

A diversion sign halfway along Kelvinhaugh Street.

Anybody spot the issue here? 👀 The diversion for cycling during #COP26 is a mess. It’s inaccessible. It’s not signed correctly. It’s not a route that people want that makes them feel safe. https://t.co/6bNuDzihB0

The path over the River Kelvin bridge is very narrow, so having this fence block sightlines onto it until the last moment before knowing whether the way is clear or not is rather unhelpful. #102680 illustrates the width. With the gate left ... [more]

"Doom awaits" - a fence blocking sightlines onto the narrow path across the River Kelvin expressway bridge. No such problems for drivers on the adjacent road. See also #175173.

A diversion sign for the NCN7 COP26 diversion route obscured by a parked van. Not the van driver's fault, of course, since it should have been placed somewhere where it could be better seen.

Is this sign meant to be in use?

The Clydeside Distillery has some cycle parking stands under a shelter.

The Square, Drymen

The entrance to the cycle path at Greenlaw Road has been receiving some attention. However, the two plastic bollards that control access have gone missing.

The plastic bollard at the entrance to the cycle path at Dock Street has gone missing.

A broken sign on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Dalmuir.

"Cyclists Please Dismount" on NCN7 at Scottish Events Campus. Also "Pedestrians this way" without indicating a way. The footway is shared use. Update: The "No Cycling/Cyclists Please Dismount" sign in the photo above has since been remov ... [more]

The toucan crossing across Castlebank Street at the Glasgow Harbour development is missing its red man and green cycle lights. The road surface is also badly worn.

Looking towards #173895, this is where the Loch Lomond Railway Path used to start. Now the gap in the underpass wall has been filled in and the former railway embankment demolished, so NCN7 crosses Castlebank Street using this toucan crossi ... [more]

The footway on the north side of Castlebank Street resumes, but is fenced off just west of the toucan crossing (as seen in #173896). That doesn't stop people using it, and a worn desire line is visible in the grass verge too. NCN7 crosse ... [more]

The northern footway of Castlebank Street doesn't last long, and like South Street, has large gaps in it. A traffic island is the only aid for crossing. NCN7 shares the footway on the right with pedestrians. The site on the left is being ... [more]

The Sawmill Road junction used to have the cycle path on a former railway bridge over the top of the road, but now that has been demolished, the cycle route is on the South Street shared footway to the right. The footway on this side res ... [more]

The junction where it is proposed to close NCN7 during the COP26 conference and divert users around the streets of Yorkhill, Finnieston and Anderston. The carriageway of the road is accessed via the dropped kerb before the bridge, and the f ... [more]

The northern footway on South Street comes to another break, and again there is a desire line worn in the grass. NCN7 is on the opposite shared footway. Meanwhile, a line of car showroom flags marks the course of the demolished former ra ... [more]

The resumption of the South Street footway at Ferryden Street was brief, and it comes to an end again after the car showroom built on the course of the cycle path. The path used to cross Harmsworth Street here on a former railway bridge. ... [more]

South Street, with worn desire line in the grass verge where there is a missing footway, a speed camera that has been out of use for a long time, a traffic counter, and NCN7 on the footway across the road.

South Street carries quite a lot of industrial traffic, due to the area it is in. So the cycle route (on the footway on the right) is so unattractive to these two cyclists that they prefer this road to the shared footway cycle route. The ... [more]

The footway on this side of South Street resumes, with the worn desire line continuous from #173806. The NCN7 cycle route on the opposite footway is not good enough to attract these two to use it.

The toucan crossing is used to follow the cycle route which continues on the footway of the other side of South Street, but there is a clear desire line for staying on this side. There is a short break before the footway resumes at Ferryden ... [more]

The start of the railway path section of NCN7 to Loch Lomond at Smith Street. It used to start back at Meadow Road. #101427 views the site looking in the opposite direction. At least one of those signs is pointing the wrong way. Glasgow ... [more]

Shared footway on Smith Street and ramp into car park, and access to NCN7 in the background.

A new NCN7 cycle access point at the Beith Street/Rosevale Street roundabout. There is a pedestrian access over to the right, and whether this is the best point on the roundabout for a cycle access I'm not sure, since no-one will approach f ... [more]

A new cycle access point to the NCN7 path at the Beith Street/Rosevale Street roundabout, but nothing done to rectify the adjacent tree root damage.

Tree root damage left unattended to when work has been done to install a new access point at the roundabout.

Tree root damage to the NCN7 path that has been left unattended to for so long that the actual root is now exposed. See also #99471.

Tree root damage all the way up the NCN7 ramp from the Hayburn Street underpass.

A pothole in the ramp down to the Hayburn Street underpass on NCN7. Placeholder #125619 may concern this defect.

Junction on NCN7 for Partick to the left and City Centre to the right. I'm not so sure about Kelvingrove Park being to the left, since that way is just along the main road. Head right and leave NCN7 at Ferry Road for the West City Way route ... [more]

Destroyed railway bridge View west from abandoned Whiteinch Riverside Station [The railway path has at this point been curtailed at Smith Street ahead, and the section in the foreground has since been demolished and built upon. The ra ... [more]

I don't know what the purpose of that bar attached to the underside of the bridge is, but there's a bit missing now. I'm sure the edge of the NCN7 cycle path next to the Clydeside Expressway was straight when it was installed, but is now ... [more]

A "Happy Way", but the bushes are taking nearly half the width of the path.

Dock Street Clydebank, NCN 7 where it crosses a street, I wonder if it could be made more clear the path crosses here 🤔 Sight lines a major issue here with parked cars, for a path used by all age groups walk/wheeling with heavy vehicl ... [more]

The little bridge across the Forth & Clyde Canal in Clydebank appears to have stuck. Access is still available across the main bridge at the shopping centre, but this is often busy with pedestrians, making this a preferred route for cycling ... [more]

Although not itself part of the National Cycle Network, Sustrans has provided "This way to" stickers for NCN routes 7 and 75 for this section of signed cycle route which meets up with the NCN routes in Cessnock. This section is part of a 'c ... [more]

Some sort of pipe dangling from the road bridge over the River Kelvin and NCN7.

Corkerhill Road, with a cycle lane for northbound cyclists, and a toucan crossing for those going via Pollok Park (following NCN7 and NCN75). Protection of the cycle lane by means of armadillos starts after the bus stop.

Linthaugh Terrace meets Corkerhill Road, where NCN7 and NCN75 cross over to the footway on the far side of the dual carriageway. If not going via Pollok Park, northbound cyclists should stay on this side where there is a (now protected) cyc ... [more]

NCN7 and NCN75 on Linthaugh Road. This residential dual carriageway is traffic calmed with chicanes, but otherwise has nothing to make cycling safer.

Signage for NCN7 and NCN75 at the junction of Linthaugh Terrace and Linthaugh Road. The 'No Through Road' signs (backs to camera) don't exempt cycling.

NCN7 meets Dock Street on the edge of Clydebank. This will become a busy crossing when the new bridge to Renfrew is built. There is scope to put the cycle path on a bridge to cross the road, reusing the abutment of the old railway bridge, b ... [more]

Traffic filtering on NCN7. This separates a small residential area from the industrial estate.

That moment when you stop to take a photo and there's a cyclist approaching on the narrow shared footway and a bus approaching on the adjacent busway, before there's time to get the camera ready. All I could do was to move into the side.

Transition between segregated paths and shared footway, with incorrect corduroy tactile paving.

Access to the Village retail hub has been closed off, perhaps temporarily.

Craigiehall Street meets Govan Road, but no dropped kerb for access to the NCN7 cycle path.

A pop-up two-way cycle lane has been provided on Dumbreck Road, between the Pollok Park entrance and the motorway junction, due to the inadequate shared footway. The bus stop has been closed, and not provided with a bus boarder.

A cyclist taking a short-cut away from the official crossing point on NCN 7, across the Riverside Museum approach road, despite having to bump the kerbs. There is a significant desire line evident in the grass.
