A cross-roads of paths, where the Seven Lochs Trail turns left.

A poor transition between path and road at Balcurvie Road.

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.

The path north to Pinkston Drive has been closed and dug up.

A big hole in the path between the bollards, and evidence of flooding and poor drainage.

The path behind the recycling centre at Queenslie.

A path from Bartiebeith Road that heads around the back of Queenslie Industrial Estate, next to the M8 motorway.

Path from Claddens Quadrant over to Ashfield Street.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on the same pole as a sign saying cycling is allowed. Are cyclists only meant to dismount to go around the corner then remount?

A narrow and occasionally steep path between Bonnyholm Avenue and the Cardonald Quietway.

A route sign for NCN7/NCN75, and council signs for the local path network.

A path junction in Househill Park.

The main path in Househill Park.

A path from Dykebar Hospital over to Strathcarron Road.

Signage for the Cardonald Quietway on the right-hand side of Linthaugh Road, but not very easy to read from the left-hand carriageway (which, since the footway is not shared-use, is where approaching cyclists should be). Quite frankly, t ... [more]

The previous barriers have been removed from end of the path to Ben Nevis Road (see #90312).

The previous barriers have been removed from the path alongside Ben Nevis Road.

A gate on NCN7 near the park at the end of Ben Nevis Road. Sometimes it is open, sometimes it is shut.

Surface repairs to NCN7 alongside the White Cart Water.

The boundary sign for Renfrewshire on NCN7 alongside the White Cart Water.

No dropped kerb at the end of the path to Langlands Road (which has a 'No Cycling' sign at the other end #112293).

An old speed limit sign on the path from Strathcarron Drive to Dykebar Hospital.

A very poor surface on the path from Strathcarron Drive to Dykebar Hospital.

A very poor surface on the path from Dykebar Hospital to Strathcarron Drive, with raised edges creating a trip hazard and hazard for bike tyres.

Path connecting Strathcarron Drive to Dykebar Hospital.

Chicane barrier on path from Strathcarron Drive to Hurlet Road, even though there is pedestrian guard railing across the end preventing access to the road.

A poor transition between one section of riverside path and another, which could be made much smoother to allow users to concentrate on not hitting the posts instead.

Signs at the point where the main path goes beneath the Crookston Road bridge, including a sign for the alternative route in case of flooding on the main path.

The cycle route towards Paisley passing under Crookston Road, and following the White Cart. The ramp up to Crookston Road (at #112178) can be seen to the left.

A hair-pin bend in the ramp up from the White Cart path to Crookston Road.

The sign in #33288 still standing defiantly!

As I've mentioned before (see #107159), this is listed in Glasgow City Council's database of cycle routes.

On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

The path from Drumchapel to Annan Drive, Bearsden, is a bit on the narrow side.

Something tells me that this is the council boundary.

The path from the end of Annan Drive leading to Drumchapel starts off wide, but gets narrower.

Major utilities work is taking place at either end of Conon Avenue. Although the direct path to Drumchapel appeared to be closed, the footway of Conon Avenue was clear, leading to Annan Drive and its path to Drumchapel.

Major utilities work is taking place at either end of Conon Avenue, but the path next to Colquhoun Park has been kept clear.

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

Bollards in the path on the approach to the connection to Courthill.

A connecting path across to Edgehill Road.

Nearing the top of the hill, and the end of the upgraded section of path. A couple of bollards have been placed in the path next to a path junction.

The section of the path from Stockiemuir Avenue to Drymen Road that has been upgraded. The gradient increase can be seen in the background.

The path to Drymen Road diverges from the Ski Club access.

The path to Stockiemuir Road, and across to the Baljaffray estate, could easily be upgraded for cycling, along with the rest of the route from the Allander Centre.

In common with other signs on this route (see #111996), the eastbound sign at the entrance to Heather Park is for walking and cycling, but the westbound sign is for walking only. However, in this case the remainder of the route to Baljaffra ... [more]

The path from Heather Park to the Craigdhu Wedge and Allander Centre is signposted as a walking and cycling route, even though the first section of path is narrow and muddy (see #111998). The path from the Craigdhu Wedge is signposted as ju ... [more]

The path from Heather Park and Heather Avenue crosses an unusual bridge across a stream to reach the path (to the right) to the Craigdhu Wedge and Allander Centre. A path to Craigdhu Road goes straight ahead over the hill, but didn't look l ... [more]

The path from the Craigdhu Wedge crosses an unusual bridge over a stream to get to Heather Avenue and Heather Park. The path to the right is signposted as a walking route to Craigdhu Road, but see #112000.

The narrow and unsurfaced path from Heather Park towards the Craigdhu Wedge is not particularly suitable for cycling, although it is popular with dog walkers.

A damaged directions sign at the path junction near Cromarty Crescent. The path to the right is unsurfaced.

Signs at the Craigdhu Wedge. Right for walking and cycling to the Allander Centre, left for walking to Stockiemuir Road. Walking times are given.

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]

No dropped kerb to get onto the path from the back of the Tesco store to Skipton railway station.

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.
