Due to problems with public disorder on hot sunny days, various gates to Kelvingrove Park have been locked shut. Evidently, this is not a popular policy.

Walkern Hall from road

Steps at Edinburgh Rd on path between Cranhill Park and housing (weren't marked on OSM).

Poor quality path in a park signed as shared use.

Still no dropped kerb on Strathtay Avenue at the start of the Mossneuk cycle route.

No dropped kerb at this entrance to Maxwell Park. It would suit a raised crossing across to the station entrance opposite.

Shared use cycleway around the edge of Woodhouse Moor Park.

Still no dropped kerb at Pinkston Road to join the path between the M8 motorway and the former Sighthill Park. The new location for the Sighthill standing stones can be seen to the right.

No crossing from the exit from Robroyston Park to the shared footway on the east side of Robroyston Park. The footway on the near side is not shared-use.

Tyre tracks (not mine) in the grass in Househill Park. This park could do with a few more formalised paths.

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]

The path from Conon Avenue to the Colquhoun Park pavilion. It is possible to access Station Road from the car park to the right.

A kerb across the path into Fairweather Park from Greenlaw Road.

Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

Another example of the poor cycle infra in the Newmarket Road retail park. The driver just pulls up and stops (without indicating to traffic behind) in the cyclelane and the passenger opens the door straight away. This, combined with https ... [more]

New, very poor cycle infra in the retail park. Note "Cyclists use cyclelane only" is advisory so will confuse a lot of people. And it's a very bad place to ride, as shown by people walking in it. Just 10 metres earlier, this happened: https ... [more]
