I never noticed these cycle symbols in the paving before.

A direction sign for the cycle parking at the Golden Jubilee Hospital on the riverside path. The cycle parking has moved due to building work, and has been replaced by a number of double deck units.

The standard of construction of this riverside path appears to be very poor. A hole has opened up at the edge here, and both sets of steps have been fenced off. The kerb at the back of the path is set very high.

[Image taken 17.9.20] Floodgate on Dame Judi Dench Walk, Marygate car park, York. The yellow 'tray' is a ramp intended to enable people to move up and down kerbs in wheelchairs, for example. But they flex and break over the void. There is a ... [more]

The riverside path is separated from the car park by rising bollards, although they hadn't been deployed at the time of my visit.

The riverside path outside the Clydebank Leisure Centre.

The Titan Crane in Clydebank, and access to the new riverside path to the right.

Cycle parking at the western end of the riverside path in Dalmuir. The path does not connect into the hospital grounds ahead.

The riverside path in Renfrew, alongside the River Cart. The concrete panels give way to asphalt for the rest of the path's length to Inchinnan Road.

The riverside path turns from following the River Clyde onto the River Cart.

The Blythswood Light, one of a number of navigation aids along the River Clyde.

The surface of the riverside path changes from asphalt to concrete panels. One or two of them are slightly out of alignment here and there, although not a serious problem.

The riverside path in Renfrew, beside the River Clyde.

[Image taken 17.6.21] Marygate car park, York. The gap in the flood walls was temporarily closed earlier this month see: #169880. Today I saw the access to the walks and rides alongside the Ouse was open again. The route is part of NCN65. O ... [more]

Barriers on Inchinnan Road at the entrance to the riverside path, next to the bascule bridge.

If you haven't found the diversion by now, you won't see this sign.

Path beside the River Cart at Renfrew.

Around Braehead Shopping Centre, Renfrew.

The new riverside path from the Titan crane leaves the riverside and follows a zig-zag course a little back from the river bank. It then ceases, without (as yet) connecting to the path seen in #167649.

A new riverside path, next to the Titan crane in Clydebank. At present, it is a dead end path.

A nice section of riverside path, but it doesn't connect to anything else. A new section of path is being installed beyond the navigation light (see #167654), but with the industrial estate in the way, does not look like it will link up.

A path connectinging an industrial estate to the hospital entrance road along the riverside. I guess the things at the side of the path are meant to be cycle parking stands, although placed right up against a kerb, and in a location unlikel ... [more]

Bikes among these items fished out of the river. The spokes in that wheel have all rotted away but the wheel is still connected to the forks by the axle. The steel in the handlebars has also rotted away leaving only the chrome skin in pl ... [more]

[Image taken 24.3.21] The cycle symbols on the route out of Esplanade carpark, York, have worn away. There are two lots of 3.5cm untapered solid metal upstands across the full width of the route (part of flood prevention measures), height r ... [more]

Colourful lighting at Riverside Bridge.

Unfortunate that part of the Clyde Walkway is still closed after fire last year. Mind you, it was narrowest bit (between Kingston bridge and Squinty bridge). At least the road is quieter now and easier for distancing. Still not sure what wi ... [more]

Old barriers still blocking footbridge over White Cart, now part of the Cardonald Quietway.

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.

A complete lack of signage at the turn in the Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, although the route ahead links to the same place if you know where you are going.

Having been prevented from going into Richmond Park by the housing construction, path users now have no option but to use the steps up to Shawfield Drive.

NCN756 blocked off at Richmond Park, part of which has been sold off for a housing development. The path to the left leads to a flight of steps.

Damage the water drop from the broken Clyde Weir has been serious. Major subsidence just east of the Strathclyde distillery seems active

NCN75 closed at the SECC due to the Festival of Motoring of all things.

A nice wide toucan crossing across Ballater Street.

There's clearly something wrong with the foundation of this path for the blocks to be like this. UPDATE MAY 2017: The path has been shut for this to be dealt with. ... [more]

It appears that the cycle route goes along the footway (which isn't signed as shared use) because no dropped kerbs or other arrangements have been made to get past the road closure in Waterside Street. The bollard has received stripy tape.

The South Bank cycle route alongside the River Clyde.

The path past the Rowing Club is now surfaced, with LED catseye lights.

No Cycling on this staircase! The stairs lead to a footbridge attached to the side of the railway bridge high above the river. Probably as quick to cycle to the Millennium Bridge now than to lug a bike up and down these stairs.

A bit of a blind corner, but widened enough to take the turn away from the stonework.

Riverside path to the west of the rail bridge.

Riverside path (and flood defence gate), and a couple of stands.
