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.

Dead trees, ivy strewn, collapsing into the Love Lane path. Particularly hazardous at night.

Hedgerow saplings collapsing across the path at waist height, forming a soggy barrier in wet weather. This path, like so many, needs better maintenance, particularly of summer growth.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

The nettles are starting to take over the path again.

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

Parts of the Kelvin Walkway could do with a sweep and having the low-hanging branches cut back.

Haringey Law Centre - Courtyard # 1 Location: Tottenham Hale, London (England, United Kingdom) 1 April 2017. Litter, rubbish. A bush growing in the cycle racks and rubbish in the courtyard.

Good separation from the carriageway, not so good separation from the vegetation.

The very busy A38 near an M5 motorway junction is the only link between Wychbold and Droitwich. There is a narrow and overgrown footway that I used, and many very large lorries thundered past.

footpath completely overgrown almost impossible to cycle through!!!!!!!!!!!!

Due to the low bridges, horse-riders need to dismount. I noticed that at the similar sign on the other side of the low bridges that there was a concrete block to assist riders dismounting. But on this side it is too overgrown to get to.

Overgrown steps down to the Bowes Railway Path, signed as a pedestrian access. Anyone not wishing to use this needs to cross the main road for the ramp.

The Kelvin Walkway goes down the steps and into thick vegetation. I gave this section a miss!

The improved section of path doesn't even stretch as far as the bridge. The path beyond here is even worse!

A footpath in Cumbernauld that seems to have been forgotten about!

It is not easy to walk up this side of Cavendish Road without skimming the wing mirrors and hedges.

Short but useful link of shared use footway alongside the busy Welford Road. Very overgrown here.

The massively overgrown hedge looks nice around the street sign, but it is eating up most of the footway and also makes it difficult for drivers leaving "Downham's Lane" to see cyclists approaching from the left. See also #57360 with car.

A massively overgrown hedge not only eliminates most of the footway, it also makes it difficult to see cyclists approaching from the left of the driver in the orange Ford Focus. See also #57361 without car.

Relics Location: , Kilbarchan (Scotland, United Kingdom) The old station platform at Kilbarchan. I liked when stations and other railway fixtures were still in evidence.

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEMOdj6q20k A few years back this track was covered in a small thicket with a 1-2m wide track through the middle of it. Fine for riding and walking. Then, someone cut all the trees down, pro ... [more]

Spot the path. Don't bother trying to cycle this one just yet. However, Sustrans is part-funding a new path near here called the Levern Valley Way: "The project will connect Barrhead to Glasgow and close a major hole in the network by u ... [more]

The trees are very overgrown here squishing the cycle path to less than half its width.

Overgrown shared use cycle path between Bottisham Village College and Lode crossroads. The path is narrow at the best of times, but this makes it harder. Also there are thistles and nettles growing out into the path at various points, whic ... [more]

Overgrown shared use cycle path between Lode and Bottisham. Note the thistles, and in other places nettles extending into the path. Given the narrowness of the path, us both cycling from school in shorts can result in stings! This path is a ... [more]
