Railway bridge over the Great Ouse, Bedford Max Headroom: 5' 8"

The railway footbridge from Tennant Avenue to Eaglesham Road (and towards Hairmyres Hospital) has steps at one end, and they look like they need replacing, so let's have a ramp instead.

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.

A barrier across the path between Donald's Quay and The Saltings. It's always worth checking whether the gate is locked or not. At this point, the path is running along the formation of a former railway line.

A big improvement on the old crossing, which required you to lift the bike over. These gates appear to be controlled by magnetic lock (I didn't look closely but there's an odd lump on the side of each one).

We managed to squeeze past!

Quiet relative to the nearby A470, windy country road

As with #101515 the railway blocks progress along the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, and a flight of steps provides the connection to the adjacent A9 road bridge.

On the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath approaching the railway and steps at #101515.

The immediate way around the blockage in #101515 is to use this flight of steps up to the A9 bridge to cross the railway. The alternative is to use the road approach to the bridge to avoid the steps.

The railway crosses the canal here and blocks the towpath. There are steps up to an adjacent road bridge to the right (see #101516).

New double decker cycle parking at Partick Interchange. Work is still ongoing rebuilding the bus station.

Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway

When this area at Partick station was repaved, I thought it might be getting prepared for the installation of the large double decker bike racks, given the congestion on the existing cycle parking. But no, it has been getting used for car p ... [more]
