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.

A route sign for NCN7/NCN75, and council signs for the local path network.

A minimalist crossing put in for the Cardonald Quietway. Basically a patch of asphalt on the central reservation. Slightly diagonal too.

Signage for the Cardonald Quietway on the right-hand side of Linthaugh Road, but not very easy to read from the left-hand carriageway (which, since the footway is not shared-use, is where approaching cyclists should be). Quite frankly, t ... [more]

A simple and unobstructed crossing at Morton Avenue.

Routes NCN7 and NCN75 have been restored to the direct route at Hawkhead Hospital after a diversion lasting several years.

Route signage on route NCN7 and NCN75 together should not have brackets around the '75'.

The previous barriers have been removed from end of the path to Ben Nevis Road (see #90312).

The previous barriers have been removed from the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

Tree root damage on the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

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.

Surface repairs to NCN7 alongside the White Cart Water.

The boundary sign for Renfrewshire on NCN7 alongside the White Cart Water.

A route sign for NCN7/75 on Linthaugh Road, and cycle only access on Dormanside Road.

A poor transition between one section of riverside path and another, which could be made much smoother to allow users to concentrate on not hitting the posts instead.

Signs at the point where the main path goes beneath the Crookston Road bridge, including a sign for the alternative route in case of flooding on the main path.

The cycle route towards Paisley passing under Crookston Road, and following the White Cart. The ramp up to Crookston Road (at #112178) can be seen to the left.

A hair-pin bend in the ramp up from the White Cart path to Crookston Road.

The White Cart path meets Crookston Road. The signs have vanished from the signpost.

Pavement parking just after NCN7 and NCN75 turn into Rosshall Park. This is right next to a car park!

A poor change of surface on the path from Crookston Road into Rosshall Park.

A terrible change of surface on the path from Rosshall Park to Crookston Road. Mind how you go!

Signs at the junction of NCN7/75 and the riverside path in Rosshall Park.

A complete lack of signage, save for some dilapidated Sustrans stickers, at the left turn into Rosshall Park.

They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [See #9381 ... [more]

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath in Clydebank.

An awkward barrier at the foot of the ramp up to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, and no dropped kerb. The only way to the Clydebank Business Park that could possibly be just a quarter of a mile is to head in the opposite direction from ... [more]

Signs visible through the trees for various destinations not mentioned at the top of the ramp. Anyone getting this far probably already knows where they are going. Plus an awkward barrier to get around at the bottom of the steep and narrow ... [more]

The access ramp from the Forth & Clyde Canal to the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, but nothing on the signpost to say so.

Corduroy 'hazard' tactiles used in place of 'cycleway' tactiles on NCN 7/10/72 on Castle Way. These caught my tyre slightly as I was cycling over them. Some of the paving slabs along here were a bit uneven too.

A toucan crossing across from Castle Street to NCN routes 7, 10 and 72, and to the castle itself.

A narrow split pedestrian crossing for NCN routes 7 and 10 crossing Bridge Street. There is a sticker for NCN72 at this location, and upon checking the Sustrans website, it appears to have been relocated from the riverside path to here.

A narrow faded line segregated footway/cycleway for NCN routes 7 and 10 over the bridge on Bridge Street to get to the crossing. I don't know what standards this may meet. But three lanes for westbound motorists.

Signage for NCN routes 7 and 10 at the top of the ramp from Viaduct Estate Road. The routes head west to cross Bridge Street and then head east along the far side of the dual carriageway.

A contraflow cycle track between Viaduct Estate Road and Bridge Street. The footway style cycle track becomes a painted lane part of the way up the ramp.

Southbound NCN routes 7 and 10, with stickers on the bollard.

Welcome to the National Cycle Network! NCN routes 7 and 10 on the path to the left have no directional signage, just stickers, while the routes ahead - 7, 10 and not mentioned leading to 72 - have just a sign facing those coming from the pa ... [more]

Signs for destinations on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. A steep path next to the ruin leads down to Donald's Quay and to a path from there to The Saltings nature reserve.

One for @cyclestreets a brand new barrier on NCN 7 in Washington. https://t.co/bYvvqNfKFD This followup tweet reports that Sustrans are aware and taking action: https://twitter.com/gazza_d/status/1113425932021374977

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath is now in a reasonable shape, but the path to Beardmore Street only gets worse as it goes on!

Access to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath over the lifting bridge at Farm Road.

A choice of routes to Glasgow, and a map. It just needs a 'You Are Here' arrow.

The cycle counter in Clydebank hasn't been working the last few times I've passed.

Canalside signage in Clydebank.

@TrothBen @CycleInfraDay @Fenmonkey @bencooper Here is my trike on the bridge. Not much room for anyone coming the other way. https://t.co/19Afh1W4Gc

More cycle parking stands, and a sign for the "Alternative route to Inverness East".

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.

Cyclists heading along ncn 7 on the track-bed of the old railway line that carried iron ore up these hills to the erstwhile Consett Iron Works. The line is famously steep around here, so these heavy trains were quite a spectacle in the days ... [more]

The Loch Lomond railway path used to carry on here, but now flats block the route as well as the expanded car showroom that initially took over some of the land. NCN7 continues along the footway across South Street to the right.

Different styles of sign on the Primrose Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path.

The Balmoral Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path. The first time I've seen a postal district on a cycle route sign.

The connection to NCN7 at Sandholm Terrace is formed with horrible concrete blocks with gaps in between.

NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path at Dock Street crossing.

A raised crossing across Mellerstain Drive in Yoker.

I remember being told by a council official how planning gain was going to be used to help develop the cycle route network in Glasgow. I don't think anything beneficial happened as a result of the new housing on the left.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path (seen in #48603), but the site still needs a general tidying up.
