Cycle parking on the northbound platform at Larbert station.

Cycle parking next to the entrance to Larbert station.

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!

Railway bridge 2 south - note the brickwork in the archway!

A sign for the HArTT cycle route pointing towards Spinkhill (see #103160), but as the old railway bridge was removed (see #103161), a hair-pin bend path has been built up to New Hallglen Road to use its bridge instead. No indications whethe ... [more]

A track that used to lead to a bridge that the HArTT cycle route used to cross the railway line. However, the bridge has been removed, leaving only the New Hallglen Road bridge to cross by. The HArTT cycle route sign at #103163 can be se ... [more]

The old road under the old railway bridge has been closed to motor vehicles, but remains open to cycling and walking into the Kinneil Estate.

The John Muir Way in Bo'ness has been resurfaced with smooth asphalt, and solar LED catseyes for lighting. However, the level crossing kissing gates remain.

Cycle parking outside Inverness railway station, with what looks like a locked staff enclosure in addition to open racks.

According to Network Rail, the railway bridge on Muirhead Road has been "rebuilt stronger and wider to enable two-way traffic, cycle route and pedestrian footpath". I don't see a cycle route. https://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/news ... [more]

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).

A new ramp up to a new car park and cycle parking (see #101148), linked to Falkirk High station. The gap in the railing halfway up is for a dirt path leading to Slamannan Road.

A steep ramp down to the passageway under the railway and linking to Drossie Road and the opposite side of Falkirk High station. The path to the right leads to the nearside platform. There appears to be more than enough room behind the c ... [more]

It always surprises me what some folk will mark as suitable for cycling on OSM. Railway bridge with steps both sides.

A steep ramp up to a railway bridge, only really useful for walking.

While the Clyde Walkway isn't exactly an ideal cycle route, it is disappointing to see such an awkward barrier at the John St access in Blantyre.

Access maintained for pedestrians and cyclists during bridge works. Narrow but way better than a lengthy diversion.

Quiet on a Sunday morning, but plenty of room for motoring under the Turner Road railway bridge in Colchester. The lane the cyclist is in is a bus lane.

An attempt has been made to brighten up this narrow passageway under the railway, but no-one has come back to keep it in good order.

A route sign for the route to the right on a square post, but only stickers for the route straight ahead through the tunnel.

Grudging footpath crossing of the railway with cycling across not allowed. Instead of automatic barriers, we get heavy metal gates that easily slam back onto your heels and to add insult, the official signs call the location "Nowhere FPW"!

Temporary, I know, but a good demonstration of a lack of understanding (or care). Work being done to move the drop kerb around the corner (which might make sense). Work crew take OUT old drop kerb before finishing new one. Thus no drop kerb ... [more]

Narrow and blind - the path under the railway bridge on Ditton Meadows. This is acceptable as a "temporary" fix, but a permanent solution is needed to give acceptable width and sight lines.
