Parking stands at Bearsden station.

The 'No Through Road' sign, located halfway along the road, rather than at a junction. For pedestrians, access to Millerston can be had via the station and the bridge ahead, but no attempt has been made to make this available for cycling. ... [more]

The first opportunity to leave the presumably shared footway from the toucan crossings at the motorway junction is up beyond the roundabout at the housing on the left (see #169533).

Improved cycle parking at Kinning Park Subway station, compared to #36158. But old signs are still faded and beyond readable.

[Newer image this issue: #169949.] [Image taken 2.4.21] The original 'all non-motor users' route which runs through Marygate car park, York. It is alongside the Scarborough-York rail line. The too-tight space is further reduced by the plant ... [more]

[Image taken 27.2.21] The new Dyson handwashing facilities in York rail station. Do you steer them or wrestle them? Completely overdesigned and inappropriate for a place you get all ages, all levels of education, and people who are short of ... [more]

[Newer image: #169923] [Image taken 15.11.18] York rail station. It had a standard-setting feature outside its ticket office - a Sheffield rack for people buying or collecting tickets, or getting travel information. When the office was relo ... [more]

[Image taken 10.10.20] No cycles sign at the new ticket office at York rail station. (See also #165416, #165418, #165419, #165421.)

[Image taken 10.10.20] When the new ticket office opened at York station in October 2020, the cycle rack was no longer provided (See: #165421). Worse, staff and signage warned customers they could neither take their cycles inside while they ... [more]

[Image taken 7.7.20] There's a great deal of accessible, covered cycle parking within 100m of this sign. But you wouldn't know it. This is a missed opportunity. See also #165416, #165419, #165420, #165421.

[Image taken 7.10.18] There is a vast amount of cycle parking at York rail station. To help people find their cycles there are letters on the pillars and the Sheffields are divided into areas each with a colour on their top bars. See also: ... [more]

The southern entrance to Partick station is becoming a bit cluttered, and is being used for car parking, including over the path, which is also partially blocked by hire bikes.

A couple of abandoned/damaged bikes at Partick station.

Coatdyke train station cycle parking and ramp, to left of steps (quite steep).

Cycle parking at East Kilbride station, one of two shelters, and a shared footway on Torrance Road.

Cycle parking at East Kilbride station. One of two shelters.

Bikes parked outside Crossmyloof station. Perhaps this is easier than getting to the cycle parking on the Glasgow-bound platform. There is space here for stands.

Sustainable drainage provides space for roadworks signs! Beyond the sign, there's another of those mysterious ramps as in #112831.

The entrance to the Robroyston station car park on the Millerston side. A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign but nothing to say motorists can't drive all the way to their parking spaces.

Egress from the Robroyston station car park on the Millerston side is via the bus turning circle.

Cycle parking at Robroyston rail station. There is cycle parking on both sides of the line.

Robroyston station car park, Millerston side, including cycle parking.

Cycle parking at Robroyston rail station. There is cycle parking on both sides of the line.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, unusually in mixed upper and lower case, at the entrance to Robroyston station car park, suggesting the footway from #112818 is indeed shared-use. For those not on the footway, a mandatory tour of the car park ... [more]

The entrance to Robroyston railway station.

Some sort of ramp between the roadway and the footway, then a footway crossing on the approach to the station access. There's another of these ramps at #112866.

The home straight for the road to Robroyston station. An unusual location for a 'No Through Road' sign.

There's nothing to indicate whether the footway that came from the toucan crossings back at the motorway junction is shared-use or not. In any case, anyone using the footway has a particularly indirect route to the station. At this roundabo ... [more]

Since there is only a shared footway on this side of Saughs Road at this point, anyone using it wanting to go to Robroyston station must go left to cross Saughs Avenue before starting to head towards the station.

A very clear banner giving the location of the cycle parking.

Cycle parking lockers removed from Thorne North station car park, with no replacement stands or anything else that I could see.

The Trans Pennine Trail at Penistone station.

Clear signage on the Trans Pennine Trail outside Penistone station.

The main cycle parking at Barnsley station, including the former 'Bike & Go' stands and shelter. I'm sure there will be a reason for the spelling of 'Barnsleigh Interchange'.

Some cycle parking on platform 2 at Barnsley station. There is more cycle parking on platform 1 (see #112592).

A banner promoting some aspect of cycling, but since part of it has fallen down, the message is lost.

The cycle spaces on Class 333 local electric trains between Leeds, Bradford, Skipton and Ilkley consist of a vertical hanging arrangement. There appeared to be a couple of these in this coach, and marked externally.

Well used cycle parking at Skipton station.

Three cycle lockers behind the entrance ramp, with the sign hidden behind the shiny new ticket machine.

Cycle parking outside Westgate station, and parcel collection lockers.

Cycle parking at Blantyre station.

Two generations of cycle parking at Westerton station, the shelter being under CCTV coverage.

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

The Bothy - Inverclyde's home of walking and cycling, at Gourock station.

NCN75 goes right through Gourock station, but it doesn't look like anyone is getting in this gate today. A path to the left is really what is needed, allowing access past the station to reach #91054 without dismounting.

Signs for the Clyde Coastal Path, but not NCN75, outside the entrance to Gourock station. Only some of the poles have a blue stripe on them.

Cycle parking outside Gourock station. There were also stands inside on the concourse and these were more popular.

Cycle parking inside Carlisle railway station, at Platform 8.

A faded sign for NCN72 outside Carlisle station, which should have brackets for 'leading to NCN72', although NCN routes 7 and 10 are closer.
