National Cycle Route 45 - the alternative is a dangerous dual carriageway. Why this former railway can't be given a surface is beyond me. This locks people out of active travel. https://t.co/8AZIRax7O5 [approximate location]

Battered railings encroaching further into a narrow shared path. Why exactly are they needed? The next crossing does not have railings.

Burst water main, not being fixed. Grantchester High Street

This was already a very tight and awkward gap to negotiate. Knuckle crusher rails were installed last year to punish anybody who didn't get their alignment quite right. This bollard has now been added to make it even more difficult and make ... [more]

Looking along the Calder & Hebble Navigation in Brighouse.

The path from Bingley station to Ferncliffe Road and beyond to the Airedale Greenway passes the Aldi car park.

The path to Bingley station crosses the entrance to the Aldi car park.

The path from the Manchester Road crossing at #110453 takes a diagonal route across the wide central reservation of Croft Street, across to Nelson Street.

Was I imaging in #107165 that this path was being upgraded?

Since my last visit, a short section of wider path has been laid, but ends here.

The soggy path meets the road network but there is a concrete edging strip sticking up. Uncomfortable to cycle over, and a tripping hazard for walkers.

The path has no connection to Barrangary Road, but instead curves around and the first connection with the road network is at Forge Crescent.

A short path off from the main path to a cannon. This area used to be home to the Bishopton Royal Ordnance Factory.

After a brief piece of asphalt at the railway access point, the path reverts to a soggy soft surface for the unexpectedly steep climb.

A newly built soggy wet path alongside the railway in the southern part of Dargavel.

A soggy wet path to Bishopton station from the new housing development. All of the roads have asphalt or paved surfaces, so why this for the main path?

A soggy wet path from Bishopton station to southern Dargavel.

Clear access to the path to the southern part of Dargavel, but why does the asphalt not continue?

The shared path ends on the approach to the 30mph zone on Burgh Road, and has separate places for cyclists to join and leave the path.

Once past the end of the 30mph zone on Burgh Road, a shared path starts up and runs alongside the road to the roundabout.

The broken surface makes for a bumpy ride.

Confirmation of route 72, although NCN72 no longer comes this way according to the Sustrans website.

A path crossroads but no signs. One side has a marker post with an arrow. I'm just guessing the way.

A diagonal piece of wood across the path presents a potential hazard for cycling, although this chap out with his dog managed it fine.

The path from Willow Holme Road meets the riverside path, which this sign describes as the Hadrian's Wall Path public footpath. https://www.nationaltrail.co.uk/hadrians-wall-path

The narrow path connecting Willow Holme Road to the riverside path is overgrown with nettles and some thorns.

Once over the flood defences, the path alongside the stream is of poor quality, and liable to flooding.

Sometimes you just have to give way to bigger traffic Stourbridge Common

Shared path to Rigby Gardens, part of traffic-free route through new housing. Could do with more drop kerbs but paths are useful to avoid Shettleston Road.

Despite there being the space to do something good, the i3 cycle route is signed along the narrow footway of New Street. The obstructive control cabinet at the pedestrian crossing makes it even more difficult to use. Not very innovative!

I don't think this sign is pointing the right way. The path could be better aligned with the road crossing.

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

Signs on the Capelrig Way at one junction, but the previous junction had none and the main path diverges from the path back to Capelrig Road.

The Capelrig Way links through Crookfur to a couple of schools. But stops when it reaches Capelrig Road.

A last few twists and turns before the Kelpies.

Another 'End of Cycle Route' followed immediately by the continuation of the same cycle route. Slow for and give way to anyone with keys to the gate.

The HArTT cycle path runs alongside the River Carron, and under this old railway bridge.

The asphalt surface has ended as the HArTT cycle path nears the River Carron.

The HArTT path gets narrower, and starts twisting and turning.

Negotiating the path down from Cumbernauld Road to join the Strathkelvin Railway Path. Still as narrow and awkward as ever.

Signs in Bainsford. I can't think why Carron and Stenhousemuir are only for pedestrians, or why they didn't name the hospital. Imagine walking three and a quarter miles and it turns out to be the wrong one! The single-sided HArTT cycle r ... [more]

Pedestrian signage on the HArTT cycle path at Bainsford, although not actually at a junction.

Signage for the HArTT cycle route, in its usual tiny writing.

The shared-use path from the canal to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park and continuing onwards to the Park'n'Ride car park at the A803/A883 roundabout.

No dropped kerb at the start of the path on Garbett Place. No signage either, even though this is part of the HArTT cycle route.

The path from Camelon at Sunnyside Playing Fields. The path to Bainsford and Carronside is visible beyond the rugby pitch.

The path between Sunnyside Street and Sunnyside Playing Fields is a Right of Way.

The path from Sunnyside Playing Fields arrives at Sunnyside Street, although it is a bit hidden from view from the road by the buildings.

No dropped kerb on the path from Carmuirs Park football ground car park to Mansionhouse Road. Mansionhouse Road could be developed as a cycle link between the canal and Camelon.

Glasgow City Council is planning some work to fix this retaining wall on the Kelvin Walkway.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Kelvin Walkway Garriochmill Road access, where a short path has been laid to divert around the worksite.

The path from Peel Park Place climbing up from the railway bridge to Eaglesham Road at Hairmyres.

A bridge on the path from Hairmyres to Peel Park Place.

Is the cycleway so narrow because it is one-way? Probably not.

The Glen Road path, linking Stewartfield Way to actual Glen Road, which leads towards Carmunnock and Glasgow.

Arrotshole Road path climbs up towards the Morrison's supermarket, with other paths connecting at various points.

A path connecting the main path to Loch Striven.

A path connecting Whitemoss Recreation Ground to the cycle facilities at Whitemoss Roundabout.

The Burns Park end of the footbridge across Kingsway.

I'm not sure whether this kerb is dropped or not, but the path leads to the ramped footbridge across Kingsway to Burns Park.

A path signed as a cycle access to NCN756, but could do with being a little bit wider. The road at the top, Logie Park, is one way, but there is no sign to tell cyclists this.

The access to NCN756 is vulnerable to blockage by van parking at Glamis Drive.

The older path connects Highfield Place and The Gateway, while the newer path connects across to NCN756 on the railway path. No signage, but as NCN756 also joins The Gateway, it can be reached by either route for those heading north.

One of East Kilbride's old cycleway and footway combinations, through the underpass connecting Highfield Place and The Gateway.

A path connecting the Stewartfield Way shared footway to a woodland path from where Markethill Road can be accessed.

A path junction in Stewartfield.

The connection from Barr Terrace to NCN756 on West Mains Road is pedestrian only.

The view out of the sliproad underpass towards a roundabout and development site. Room for upgrading.

A footway next to the High Common Road/Strathaven Road sliproad. If this was upgraded to a cycleway, there's room to move the path away from the road to give better sightlines into the underpass.

East Kilbride's cycle route 3 continues alongside the A726 to the Calderglen Country Park overflow car park.

The footway and cycleway merge together for the High Common Road sliproad crossing. The 'shared use' sign has completely faded out.

The cycleway merges into the bus stop layby, but the layout could easily be revised within the available space.

Before route 3's path was built, cyclists were expected to return to the carriageway once past the roundabout.

A path across the Blacklaw Drive roundabout and into the Tesco supermarket. There are no signs for East Kilbride cycle route 2 at this roundabout. However, the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign has vanished too.

A path across the roundabout in Blacklaw Drive, and onwards through the housing scheme.

Someone needs to set up a website 'Rate My Asphalting'.

No signage at this major path junction in St Leonards. The only clue as to which way East Kilbride cycle route 2 goes is the widened path.
