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.

A plastic bollard has replaced the previous metal barriers in the path.

The underpass has replaced the old railway bridge under Dyke Road.

A path could connect Speirshall Close (see #99544) to the NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path, but there is just open ground.

The opening on the right leads to the NCN7 Loch Lomond cycle path, but there is no actual path, just open ground (see #99545).

Roadworks affecting the signed link between NCN 7 and Partick station, but not clear if the route is open or closed, no diversion, obstructions on the toucan crossing. A poor show all round!

Tree root damage to NCN 7 cycle path in Partick.

Brand Street approaching the turn into Harvie Street. But how is anyone meant to know to turn onto the shared footway rather than the carriageway at the junction?

Now that NCN7 has been moved onto the footway at Harvie Street there is a new blind corner problem. Also, why is there a priority crossing at Govan Road and no priority for crossing Brand Street?

The parallel cycle and zebra crossing has now been finished. Go left to turn right. It's also not clear what is and what is not shared use footway.

What's that rule about not parking within so many metres of a junction? A car parked blocking entrance to the cycle track, so that it becomes easier to go around the other side of the traffic island to get to Lorne Street.

No access to the cycle track from the side road. Not unique.

Could the route alignment be any worse? How about a cycle crossing straight across to the new path (see #93791) at the Village development rather than the split toucan?

If you're expecting signs for NCN 7 or 75, they are visible on the right.

I guess the best way onto the Pacific Drive shared use footway is via the toucan crossing on the left. They don't appear to think anyone would approach from this direction.

A variable width newly nominated shared-use footway alongside the Fastlink busway. Also in the picture, cycle parking for the Village development.

A 2018 Glasgow cycle infrastructure.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road has still not been completed! Note the parking layby is narrower than the vehicle parked in it.

The new zebra and cycle parallel crossing on Govan Road still hasn't been completed. Not even the shared footway surface has been finished!

Quite why this hole has been left in the road I don't know. The cycle lane has been replaced by the cycle track on the right.

The new road layout at the junction of Govan Road and Lorne Street.

Cycle servicing station just outside Ayr on NCN7. Who'd have thought it. Pump, tools, seating - all it needs is a canopy from the rain! https://t.co/EWwKwJjYK2

Take care if you're riding south on Govan Rd - a big chunk of road surface has not been reinstated after recent resurfacing. Reported to @GlasgowCC via #FillThatHole https://t.co/LIqNPAI57X https://t.co/sM2wzw6rme

Slow progress on the parallel cycle/zebra crossing on Govan Road.

The plans show a parallel cycle/zebra crossing to go in here.

A slight adverse camber on the shiny smooth asphalt cycle track.

Corduroy tactiles were specified in the drawings and corduroy tactiles were duly installed, rather than cycleway tactiles.

The surface on the cycleway is the same shiny smooth asphalt used on the footway. Not good for grip.

Dropped kerbs have been installed at the access to the Village development (rectifying #71113), but that footway next to the stepped cycleway is so narrow!

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

Desire line to Riverside Museum

Bus lane cameras. Will there be cycle lane cameras? A stepped two-way cycle track is being built along part of Govan Road, but the footway has been reduced to a minimal width, resulting in people walking on the cycle track. An extra metr ... [more]

There used to be direction signs at this path junction. Now just this! A brown sign cycle route to Dumbarton Castle starts here, going left, but there is no longer a sign here to let people know about it. Various signed walking routes al ... [more]

A barrier at Clyde St, set back from the path entrance.

NCN7. No idea how to do this legally, safely & avoiding grass. Carefully dodging left turning cars from main road? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/tDWHotHSKP

Ncn7 worst designed cycle path entrance on my route. At least nettles have died down a bit now. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/QDIhlbFwMy

NCN7. Downhill stretch that dumps cycling children straight across busy road. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/yXpsWKxmSi

NCN7. Always floods here. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/5pnSklD7Hi

NCN7. Unmarked & almost invisible speed bump. No cycle bypass. My ass is still sore from first time I 'found' this. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/mEgKZ3Z6JP

NCN7. A mud pit because it's often (presumably illegally?) driven on. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/DXj0zXUQdL

National cycle route 7 again. Potholes, metal sticking out of path, random damaged concrete markers. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/XoQY8boiyK

Guess which of these poles isn't visible in low sun? Hint: it's on desired path; full of collision marks. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/UwwAntGmfG

Uphill stretch of NCN7. Almost always get tailgated here. Shameful that this is classed as a national cycle route. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/ceu7MAic2x

Another one. Still on NCN7. Unpleasant to navigate with a car behind you. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/8kmHoamQxU

An ambiguous sign at Partick Bridge. Is the cycle route to the City Centre along Argyle Street or around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park? And whereabouts does it join NCN7?

Not sure what this is, but wasn't designed with bikes in mind & cars regularly demolish it. National cycle route 7. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/fLJMPbMu79

@sturmeyarcher3 @GoBikeGlasgow Apparently there is a diversion on a map... somewhere... https://t.co/XxexndT9Zu

Disappointing to see a business using cycling space to dump their goods on today @S4CGlasgow https://t.co/al31RX7tS8

Just some of the broken glass that plagues this section of cycle path.

A nice uncluttered layout leading from cycle path onto Greenlaw Road, but photo taken while waiting for others in group to mend a puncture caused by broken glass on the path.

Still a kerb to bump for anyone trying to get onto the carriageway next to Bells Bridge, in this case due to the closure of the cycleway by a running event. One chap decided to go over the double kerb nearer the bridge ramp! See also #90342 ... [more]

NCN7 ahead and possibly NCN75 across Bells Bridge shut for a running event. The sign refers to a diversion but it is not clear where the diversion signs are. See also #90343.

These barriers on the NCN7/75 look brand new and contravene @sustrans guidance on access controls: https://t.co/fR4xOMAmRt https://t.co/fNQV15dMJi

A mix of proper and homemade signs at the point where NCN7 turns to leave the Glasgow Harbour development, some of them making more sense than others. If someone cycling to the Clyde Tunnel or Victoria Park follows the green sign, they will ... [more]

NCN7, the Meadow Road underpass, and the toucan crossing across to the Glasgow Harbour development.

NCN7 at the Meadow Road underpass, with a dropped kerb for anyone heading up Meadow Road itself.

Getting from Sandy Road to NCN7 on Beith Street involves negotiating a maze of parked cars and kerbs.
