@GoBikeGlasgow University Avenue this week : a @GlasgowCC cycle route @UofGlasgow what about the #vulnerableroaduser https://t.co/LdiKcc19HS

Intermittent painted cycle lanes on the 40mph A88 Bellsdyke Road, a signed diversion route for the M876 motorway.

Burns Park ends in the Maxwellton Conservation Area.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street ends in a car park at the Clydebank Health Centre.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street.

The start of the West Thomson Street cycle lane, opposite Clydebank High School.

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

The road markings on part of Alderman Road have been renewed, including a buffer strip between the parking bays and the cycle lane, but there's really no point in painting it less than the width of a car away from the kerb.

@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 r ... [more]

Paint is not protection @PeopleByresRoad @UofGsustain https://t.co/BF102sqsik

The end of the Hallglen cycle path at Hallglen Primary School.

The Hallglen cycle path goes around a bus shelter in New Hallglen Road.

The Hallglen cycle path crosses the spinal path.

The start of around 300 metres of cycle path to Hallglen Primary School from Nevis Place. It crosses the spinal path which doesn't appear to be regarded as a path for cycling.

The road surface at the end of Callendar Boulevard is even worse than this photograph! There is a painted cycle lane on the left side of the carriageway, but not the right.

The painted cycle lanes on Bo'ness Road end here, and a jug-handle is provided to cross to the parallel access road to the right.

The painted cycle lanes continue from here into Grangemouth town centre.

Precisely no-one ends their journey here, so why does the cycle lane end here?

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

Northwall Road in @noordinarypark. This is what happens when you build a neighbourhood with no public car parking, but don’t provide the infrastructure to allow people to use public transport, walk, or cycle there. #olympiclegacy https:// ... [more]

End of the cycle lane and part-time bus lane on Camelon Road, and start of Falkirk town centre's one-way system.

In theory the bus lane should help separate the cycle lane from the traffic in the general traffic lane, but almost all of the car drivers were choosing to drive in the bus lane outside of operational hours.

The start of a narrow painted cycle lane on Camelon Road, just after a collapsing gully at a bus stop.

A mobile shop van parked on a footway buildout rather than using an empty parking space nearer the static shops. The bus stop is only served by the once-a-day service 709. This section of road used to have a cycle lane that followed t ... [more]

This is what happens when you resurface the car driving lane and not the cycle lane. A few years later and the surface has deteriorated so much that it can barely support the road markings.

The usual obstructive parking encroaching the door-zone cycle lane and pavement parking in Alderman Road. Maybe it's time for the Alderman Road scheme to be ripped up and a cycleway built next to the footway and car parking placed next to t ... [more]

The cycle lane has been painted the wrong way around. Such incompetence!

A big sign for the roundabout at the end of Callendar Boulevard, but motorway regulations do not apply immediately on the road to the right. This sign is in effect a 'No Turn Right' sign for non-motorway traffic, and completely bogus.

The car parking in the Callendar Boulevard painted cycle lanes resumes, but with no waiting restrictions to force drivers to take their cars to the car parks, it appears the council approves.

A break in the car parking to see the narrow painted cycle lanes.

The exit from Callendar Park onto Callendar Boulevard, where cars are regularly left blocking the painted cycle lanes.

The narrow cycle lane on Kelso Street bridge with footway car parking. No waiting restrictions so the assumption must be that the council approves of this.

A cycle lane designed for car parking. Let's not pretend this is designed for cycling.

Cycle lanes on Greenfaulds Road, and the typical junction layout in many parts of Cumbernauld.

Ayr Road at Whitecraigs.

A funders' sign for whatever aspect of this road layout they wish to trumpet about. Fastlink maybe or the cycle route? There isn't any sign to say whether or not the footway here is shared use. There was a sign at #99434 and there's one jus ... [more]

This is what a painted bike lane means @PeopleByresRoad @GlasgowCC @glendalegaelic @walkcyclevote St Andrew's Drive https://t.co/xSJ0xYx8OH

@EmmaHalliday1 @magnatom @GoBikeGlasgow Someone’s taking the message to the street. https://t.co/PaZshx9SdY

I don't suppose it matters that this van is parked in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane, since the cycle route turns right at the end of the road.

Junction potholes in the Meiklewood Road cycle lane.

The parking layby is again too narrow for ordinary cars to be reliably parked within, so eroding the buffer zone that is meant to contain door openings.

Cycle lane or not?

The painted cycle lane on Meiklewood Road goes around the bend, then vanishes for a bit.

The cycle lane on Meiklewood Road starts to move out from the kerb.

The cycle route is also a recommended route for lorry driving!

A bit of a stroll down Princes Street to see the - wait, what do we call these things? - to enable cycles to cross tram tracks. https://t.co/ujg4aq3wOO

1/2 Yet another #designfail for #Edinburgh #cyclinginfrastructure. If this is what extra funding gets us we're screwed. https://t.co/8XNeziZQjN

New sticking plasters at Edinburgh tramlines https://t.co/Q0FFD5vd1X

What is the point of advisory cycle lanes? Cumbernauld Rd today, both sides covered in parked cars @AnnaLangside @GlasgowCC @policescotland https://t.co/ze1547or7Z

Cycle lane + d/yellow lines at the foot of busy Gilmore Hill. Ideal parking place #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/xd0YZo2dOx

Haw @EastRenCouncil your bike lanes in the door zone are bad enough but this really is taking the piss! Move the sign please. https://t.co/6BHe6XluMf

Space for buggies?

A pathetic worn-out narrow painted door-zone cycle lane in Kilmarnock Road from the council that won the "Achievements in Cycling" award at the 2017 Scottish Transport Awards.

The painted cycle lanes start just after the Broomhouse roundabout (M74 motorway junction) and then encounter a bus stop. A stepped ramp footbridge has been provided for pedestrians (including bus passengers) to cross the road.

The cycle lane shifts from the kerbside to the door-zone.

The narrow door-zone cycle lane swerves into the back of some parked cars. On the other side of the road, there's a car parked partly in the cycle lane, partly on the footway.

The Broomhouse cycle lane goes over a flattened build-out, then becomes a painted door-zone cycle lane.

King Street's cycle lane doubles as an overtaking lane when there are parked cars about. A contraflow has been provided on the one-way section by permitting cycling on the existing footway.

Users of this cycle lane need to look out for oncoming motorists overtaking parked cars.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this cycle lane is.

Painted markings direct cyclists from Rutherglen onto the road to the right, but NCN756 actually goes left towards the Smart Bridge. Some dropped kerbs nearer or behind the camera would be useful here.

Typical nonsense markings in South Lanarkshire, where it appears cyclists are meant to cross from the footway of Glasgow Road (off to the right) onto the footway in the foreground, then immediately leave it for the on-road cycle lane. No he ... [more]

I don't think anyone will notice this repair...

The view along Calder Street.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

End of shared footway, start of on-road painted cycle lanes to Cambuslang along the A724.

Spot the route sign telling cyclists on route (74) to cross the road.

A recommended route for cyclists, along the A724.

Primary school children are expected to cycle along the A724 with only painted cycle lanes for "protection" on route (74).

After the bus stop, the cycle lane resumes on the road.

The Territorial Army Centre sign has been moved from the right to the left side of the shared-use footway. The cycle lane on the road leaves the adjacent lane too narrow for the traffic using it. No mention that the 74 route turns left at t ... [more]

I guess it's a cycleway.

The cycle lane ends and cyclists directed onto the footway. This sign has (74) rather than the 74 used on other signs nearby. Note also the crayon bike symbol on the carriageway.

I don't know what the designer thought would happen here.

A decaying cycle marking on Edinburgh Road. There is so much potential for a protected cycle facility along the full length of Edinburgh Road, but this is about all there is apart from some ASLs.

No real attempt to allow bike access to housing estate via path from main road, and quite narrow cycle lanes for a 40mph road.

Onto the footway at the roundabout at Drumsagard. South Lanarkshire Council has signed the A724 as NCN74, even though the Sustrans NCN74 goes to Uddingston to join NCN75.

Nothing special at these bus stops.

Back onto the footway for the roundabout.

Each of the entrances to Halfway Park has barriers across it and no dropped kerb, making it difficult for people on bikes to visit. Also, another sign for local primary schools, and car parking in the cycle lane.

A door-zone cycle lane past a layby, and if you get hit, there's nowhere for passing motorists to swerve to avoid hitting you.

The stop-start cycle lane starts again under the parked car at the right of the picture.

Continuous cycle lanes past sideroad and traffic island.

Just when the road gets to a narrow bit on a slight climb, the cycle lane stops briefly.

Cycle lanes leading onto the roundabout in the centre of Morecambe.

A roundabout with cycle lanes on it.

A cycle lane suddenly appears on North Station Road, approaching another roundabout, just when cyclists need to be positioning themselves further to the right unless they happen to be turning left.

Jumping between footway and carriageway cycling at each roundabout, but with no obvious thought given to the transition.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign approaching the Northgate Road roundabout, but now the cycle route continues along to the end of Wallacewell Road. I don't know why the traffic island encroaches into the cycle lane.

Cycle lane on Wallacewell Road.

Narrow cycle lanes with no parking restrictions. When there were offices and other workplaces along here there would be lots of daytime car parking here. Shawfield Road represents a more direct route to Rutherglen than NCN756. Some of th ... [more]

Motorbike bypass for traffic boom at the University of Strathclyde. I guess bicycle users could use it too.

Worn out painted cycle lane only visible by its colour, leading from Water St to the Toucan Crossing across Cable St to Chapel St. Google Streetview shows that those signs have been facing the wrong way for over 2 years!

I'm not sure if the marking is to indicate that this should be used by cyclists going in this direction onto Water St, because it is so worn out, but otherwise this is a cycle lane for getting to the toucan crossing across Cable St behind t ... [more]

Contraflow cycle lane interrupted by loading bay outside pub.

With-flow and contraflow painted cycle lanes in Church Street, with access to the Stonewell toucan crossing across the footway to the left.

The cycle route cuts through a car park, with an S-shaped paint path where a straight one would fit.

The turning circle at the end of Water Street has a cycle lane painted around it! The access to the riverside path (in #87599) can be seen (centre). The Sainsbury car park also exits onto the turning circle (at right).

@bollocksinfra Hardest Strava segment in Stroud, Gloucestershire https://t.co/LCc1YaGmEw

Flooded cycle lane and footway. Looks like sand may have blocked drains.
