Saltcoats/Stevenston Seafront

NCN75 runs along the footway of Lower Kempock Street, passing a car park exit and a bus stop layby along the way.

A choice of shared-use steps or shared-use pathway on the seafront at Gourock, plus some cycle parking.

Cycle servicing station just outside Ayr on NCN7. Who'd have thought it. Pump, tools, seating - all it needs is a canopy from the rain!

The promenade at Morecambe is shared-use, with the occasional reminder sign.

A sign and information board for the Way of the Roses, and one of several groups of cycle parking stands along the seafront in Morecambe.

A wide shared-use promenade at Morecambe.

Flooded cycle lane and footway. Looks like sand may have blocked drains.

Cycle bypass to mini-roundabout and traffic-calming for those going straight ahead, while NCN 7 is signed to the right for the Low Green path. The footway is also signed as shared-use. Take your pick.

Cycle bypass to traffic-calming, but vulnerable to blockage by car parking.

The path on Low Green comes away from the seafront, only for cyclists to be directed back to the Esplanade.

The cycle route is signed via this path on Low Green rather than along the Esplanade.

Apparently cyclists can't be trusted to cycle down this ramp without something untoward happening. Also, unnecessary pole clutter.

NCN 7 leaves the Esplanade for a path across Low Green, only to return to the Esplanade further along.

Some mandatory cycle lanes on the Esplanade that fill up with parked cars in summer. A continuous segregated lane right the way along the Esplanade, such as there is in Southend, may be more appropriate.

Cycle provision on the Esplanade at Ayr switches randomly between mandatory cycle lanes, onto shared-use footway, then back to mandatory cycle lanes, without any proper transition.

Vulnerable and damaged cycle parking at Helensburgh Pier.

Shared use along the seafront in Redcar.

A traffic-calming chicane on The Duver, with a narrow gap for bikes. Going around the chicane looked easier than using the gap.

There are plenty of reminders that cycling is not welcome on the promenade at Lee-on-Solent. Cyclists must use the shared-use footway alongside the road instead.

The western end of the Eastern Esplanade cycle track. The road markings suggest cyclists are meant to return to the carriageway, but a significant proportion of people on bikes were using the seafront promenade.

Line-separated shared-use footway outside of urban area
