A short length of path near the Forth & Clyde Canal. If only it went further.

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

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal from the main towpath. I assume the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign up ahead means that cycling is allowed along this path.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal. The main towpath is across the water.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway passes a caged pedestrian crossing.

Walton Park Sale Trafford a new path is created as a useful link to the canal avoiding the car park and the busy path near the canal on the opposite side of the Walton Centre, This will have helped to achieve the green flag award http://www ... [more]

The view the opposite way to #101520, and the end of an unspecified cycle route. The HArTT cycle route comes through here too, but is without a sign.

A newly resurfaced path to Camelon at the Sunnyside playing fields. Plenty of gradients.

Various signs but no mention of the HArTT cycle route which comes through here and along the path to Bainsford according to the council's map. See also #101522.

A path leading to an uncontrolled crossing of the A9 (see #101519) and the Sunnyside playing fields. Although the HArTT cycle route goes past either end of this path, it uses a signalled crossing of the A9 further to the north.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

Grantchester Meadows path. Thistles and nettles growing out of the fence by 1m. These will reach half way across the new narrow shared path, visible in the background. Narrow paths, encroachment by vegetation, these are not new problems. ... [more]

Grantchester Meadows path. New 1.5m wide path under construction, tight to the fence. This will be just as unsatisfactory as the existing narrow path alongside Skater's Fen. Why such a narrow path when there is so much space available? An ... [more]

Signs for motorists are bigger.

Signage in the Helix park, including a badge for the HArTT cycle route.

More arrivals from the direction of a car park.

Barriers across an exit from the Helix park.

Signage in the Helix park, including a badge on the post for the HArTT cycle route.

Signage in the Helix park.

The Helix park - "A place to cycle" - but I didn't see many more adult bikes besides these two. An out of town park that most people drive to.

Barriers at the entrance to the main part of the Helix park. The other side of the toucan crossing has bollards.

Helix signage outside the football stadium.

A counter on the way into the Helix park.

The path to Laurieston Road passes between an industrial estate and a railway line.

A sign for the Helix park.

One missing bollard at the end of Bog Road and the joyriders are out taking advantage of it. When is the motoring community going to get to grips with this sort of behaviour?

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

Exit from Callendar Park.

A route sign for the HArTT cycle route in Hallglen, with the route to Callendar Woods directed through the middle of a playground. The path in the foreground continues right through Hallglen.

A route sign at one corner of a triangular path junction. The route to Callendar Woods continues across the main road to the left at #101177, at the foot of the steps up to the houses. However, there is no sign for the HArTT cycle route, as ... [more]

On the left a new ramp up to a car park (see #101153), and on the right the path connecting to the Union Canal.

Signs for all directions.

Direction signs at the access from Bracken Avenue, but why this obsession with "End of Cycle Route" signs in this town? The path doesn't end until it reaches the road in any case. Also, the signs on one side are lit, and those on the side a ... [more]

The sign invites left turns from the Lionthorn Road shared-use footway onto the path to Slamannan Road, but the barriers makes them rather awkward with a bike.

A junction between shared-use paths, but there appears to be no expectation of users from this direction wanting to turn right, with no shortcut path on the desire line.

Poor forward visibility on the bit of the Kelvin Walkway that dips down next to the river then climbs back up quite steeply (out of sight around the bend).

A very narrow and bumpy path that could be improved to connect Kirklee with Kelvindale Road and the Kelvin Walkway across the river.

No dropped kerb at the end of the path linking the two halves of Turnberry Road, so anyone wanting to cycle along the path has to cycle along the footway for a little bit too.

The sign on the right gives destinations and distances, but does not have an arrow, so is effectively a route confirmation sign of the type that should be provided after a junction, not before it. The destinations can be reached by turni ... [more]

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

The route to the canal is signed along the narrow path to the left, to bypass the roundabout.

This is the route pedestrians and wheelchair users are directed along from Drumchapel station (see #100504), a narrow path with a poor inclined surface. Would two wheelchair users be able to pass easily? The far end is shown at #100508.

No actual kerb separating the carriageway and path to the canal, making for a smoother transition.

A high kerb across the end of the path to NCN754 Forth & Clyde Canal.

The riverside path at Yoker, which connects to NCN7.

The riverside path meets Yoker Ferry Road at the ferry slipway.

Call this a dropped kerb? Cut-through to Shafton Road.

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

A split toucan crossing across Townhead Avenue at Eurocentral. I don't know which direction the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign applies to. The kid on the bike took no notice of it.

The cyclepath doesn't run directly to the toucan crossing, necessitating sharp turns, when the desireline is across open land.

The M8 cycle path approaching Eurocentral.

The cyclepath, A8 dual carriageway and M8 motorway approaching Eurocentral. I'm sure it would have been possible to design a more economical A8 road layout at this point. The road to the right is a field/land access with next to no traff ... [more]

The cyclepath and westbound A8 cross the M8 motorway.

The path from Eurocentral to Shawhead alongside the A8 dual carriageway. Closed ahead, see #99666.

The path from Eurocentral to Shawhead alongside the A8 dual carriageway. Closed ahead.

The end of the path from Clay Road at the Clay Crescent bus turning circle. All this could be upgraded to improve active travel permeability within Shirrel.

The path to Strathclyde Business Park. See the comments at #99651 concerning the bridge ahead.

The path alongside this section of the A725. It ends at Strathclyde Business Park. Why not continue on to Strathclyde Country Park?

The approach at Inchwood Road to the M80 footbridge over to Kirk Place is somewhat messy.

Another path junction that would benefit from some upgrading work.

As also seen in #99784, this path needs a proper surface, and it could be rebuilt slightly to the side to improve sightlines at the path junction.

Some potentially useful paths here, but the route crossing this one needs a proper surface, and the opportunity could be taken to move it away from the vegetation to improve sightlines.

How can anyone trust signage like this? See further comments at #70290.

Little difference from my last visit at #70285.

Route 4 from Craiglinn joins the path to the B8048. I don't know which kerb I prefer to bump!

Unfortunately the paths and crossing do not align, on this newly built estate. Very poor planning.

A nice wide path through Smithstone, with a raised crossing across Old Tower Road, but is it Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4?

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns the corner here, which may account for the difference in path widths. But no signs.

It's not just youngsters that take shortcuts when the local path network as built is inadequate.

This path appears to have been forgotten about.

The entrance to the path at Bredisholm Road is being used as a parking space.

The Bredisholm Road connection to the housing estate is build to a high quality, and is lit, although the path alongside the motorway is only lit by spill from the motorway lighting.

A gate across the path to Coatbridge Road. See also #99722.

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

The path looking southwards from the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M), Scotland's shortest motorway, has now been completed. I can't help but think they could have been more generous on the width. Not that lots of people will use it, but passing a couple of people walking a dog will ... [more]

Bollards at the end of Rhindmuir Road, at the start of the path to Coatbridge Road.

Accessible footbridge over Greenfaulds Road.

A path into Todds Well, part of the Seven Lochs Wetland Park. http://sevenlochs.org/

The unmade path from Cardowan meets the made paths around Cardowan Moss.

The path from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss can be a bit wet here in times of less dry weather.

The unmade path from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss. This could be improved.

The path through the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve passes under Stirling Road.

A paint mark possibly for some sort of forthcoming work on the path through the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A barrier and kissing gate across the path in the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A barrier and kissing gate across the path in the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A path junction in the Greenfaulds area of Cumbernauld.

The path past Woodlands Primary School in Greenfaulds.

Paths in Greenfaulds.

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!

A path connecting to the riverside path in Govan.

The walkway alongside the River Clyde in Govan ends in a dead-end. This is the last junction to access the local road network.

The path joins the car park without a dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway. All that matters seems to be car parking.

The path to Craighall Street being used for getting about by bike.

A small path network connects Craighall Street to the adjoining areas but could be tidier.

No dropped kerb for access to path network at Blackburn Street.

The start of a path that may or may not lead to the Paisley Road cycle track.

Cycles only beyond this point?

If motorway regulations apply up to the sign, shouldn't there be a fence between the motorway and the path?
