Photo listing : tracks (problem)

The most recent photos are listed first. See also photomap view.

This part of this track is just about rideable.

I wouldn't consider riding anything other than an MTB here.

This section has suffered from severe erosion. Not ridable.

Very poor condition and badly eroded - do not ride.

Very poor condition. Do not ride.

The junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive, seen from the old footpath along the edge of Sighthill Cemetery. The start of the cycleway can be seen, and this is the only access.

This footpath by the hospital is quite wide enough to accommodate cycling, but it's currently not allowed by this sign. Cutting back the overgrowth, improving the surface and building a proper entrance at either end would enable this route ... [more]

Still closed more than two years after a bus crashed into here, see #90792

The potholed and flooded route to Grantchester. It doesn't get better.

Limited headroom, width, and steps under the A6011.

Very narrow path between the two crossing points inside the central reservation

Blackberry lane Aug 19, heading north. Public footpath only (cycling not permitted, or really possible). Not the most overgrown section - Just north of the farm in Toot Baldwin gambles and nettles covered the path.

Was I imaging in #107165 that this path was being upgraded?

It's hard to believe that this is right alongside the M898 motorway. The most intense vegetation is just ahead, and includes nettles.

The middle section of Shilton Lane is somewhat overgrown. This could be replaced by a path.

Start of Bramble Lane, Truro - a wasted resource

New development narrowing the Wandle Trail path

New substation creating blind corner on the cycle portion of the Wandle Trail by the bridge

The broken surface makes for a bumpy ride.

Mountain bikers not welcome on this hiking trail

This is really a footpath but is well used by people on bikes but you have to concentrate, duck through the overhanging vegetation and weave round the puddles.

No dropped kerb on the path from Carmuirs Park football ground car park to Mansionhouse Road. Mansionhouse Road could be developed as a cycle link between the canal and Camelon.

Negotiating the path down from Cumbernauld Road to join the Strathkelvin Railway Path. Still as narrow and awkward as ever.

A poor quality path connecting the industrial areas of Fairfield Place and Arrotshole Road.

The underpass from Maxwellton Road under Kingsway ramps up to Maxwell Drive. The sign for NCN756 suggests cyclists are expected, yet there is no dropped kerb to join the carriageway at the end of the ramp. However, there is a dropped ker ... [more]

The Maxwellton Road underpass beneath Kingsway is unlit during daytime, apart from the skylight in the central reservation. A far cry from the neat conservation area on Maxwellton Road.

I saw someone walking across from Applegate Drive when I was further back along Netherton Road, but I see there is no path here.

A messy end to Netherton Road path at the housing development in Lindsayfield. Direct access to Jackton Road is long gone, although the sign for the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route is visible.

No path from the small park to the pedestrian crossing on Western Isles Road.

The path to the canal could not only be wider, and have a dropped kerb at the end, but could also meet the road nearer the corner to avoid being blocked by parked vehicles. The priority sign to the right needs corrected too.

The path along the edge of the park disappears under a bush, and because the grass is at the foot of a slope, the grass can get a bit too boggy to cycle on.

Poor condition asphalt path and damaged marker post on the Drumchapel Way.

The optimist in me wants to believe that this section of the Drumchapel Way path is currently being upgraded.

Horrible: masterpiece of inaccessibility stepped ramp.

The proximity of trunk roads and flyovers already contribute to a hostile road environment and this is just pathetic.

Clear line of desire for cycling through the car park to central Bratislava

Very poor surface throughout this track.

Bridleway, can get very muddy in winter

This could be a useful link between Downham Market and Bexwell if it had a better surface. Concrete gives way to packed gravel by the farm buildings.

Stonecross Road could be a useful route to Bexwell avoiding the A1122 but is currently a very poor surface. It is passable even in dry December, though.

Stonecross Road could be a useful route towards Bexwell avoiding the A1122 but is poorly surfaced with broken concrete leading to gravel and back to concrete.

An upgraded surface here (camera right, looking northwest), would enable a safe means of crossing the motorway and getting to the Bridgewater Circle.

Decent wide surface here, but it narrows as it heads to Higher Road. Could do with being widened to full extent of highway.

Footbridge over A61 to Wharf Lane Towpath and Cuckoo Way goes to left just before railing. Note that there is a drop onto the towpath

Church Road between Stanfree and Shuttlewood Road, an old disused road, used to be nice but now not possible to cycle due to deep ruts, such a shame.

Church Road, Stanfree, hard to cycle due to deep ruts, used to be a nice lane to cycle on but now in a state of ruin.

Path that sign #103365 point to - I'm not sure it is meant to be a cycleway.

Private access road, gravel

The path alongside the Westquarter Burn suddenly gets rather steep for the climb back up to New Hallglen Road. More like a mountain biking route than a local cycle network route!

End of the asphalt as the path heads towards the Westquarter Burn.

Welcome to the National Cycle Network. Please leave your bicycle at home and bring a helicopter! /edit - I believe this section is now being improved by Lancashire County Council.

This bridge could form part of a useful quick link between the estates on either side, if only it had a good surface. The surface on the approach roads also needs significant work.

Unfortunately, the gap created at the side of the locked steel barrier has a loose stone surface, adjoining nice tarmac. The change in surface will catch out the unwary, especially as the stone surface becomes more eroded over time

Overgrown footpath, blocked by noses of vehicles breaching the car park boundary.

Informal path up to a bridge over the Scheldt, Tournai

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

A very narrow and bumpy path that could be improved to connect Kirklee with Kelvindale Road and the Kelvin Walkway across the river.

Terrible connection between cycle route and towpath.

It's not at all clear which is the byway - to the left or ahead

Stepped footbridge over the A1

Stepped footbridge over the A1

Path width seriously restricted by bramble and nettle growth also restricting visibility

The motorway surface would never have been left like this, so why the core path and cycling route?

Fences ✅ Crash barriers ✅ Surface ❌ Unless you like cycling on the A89 dual carriageway, this is one of the few options for getting around Baillieston Interchange and on to Bargeddie.

The path from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss can be a bit wet here in times of less dry weather.

The unmade path from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss. This could be improved.

Another path junction that would benefit from some upgrading work.

As also seen in #99784, this path needs a proper surface, and it could be rebuilt slightly to the side to improve sightlines at the path junction.

Some potentially useful paths here, but the route crossing this one needs a proper surface, and the opportunity could be taken to move it away from the vegetation to improve sightlines.

It's not just youngsters that take shortcuts when the local path network as built is inadequate.

This path appears to have been forgotten about.

The link between Byron's Pool and Trumpington Meadows Country Park is basically a gap in the hedge.

Wasted space above the M25

It’s necessary to carry the bike down or up these steps as there’s no ramp.

Footbridge no ramp

Someone in Blatches Chase really dislikes other people using their path. No walking, cycling or horse riding. I guess driving down here is ok?

Ruts and mud on byway between Five Lanes End and Down Farm Lane Location: , Tunworth (England, United Kingdom)

Ruts and mud on byway between Five Lanes End and Down Farm Lane Location: , Mapledurwell (England, United Kingdom)

Entrance to path is almost invisible, but path itself is ok. Faded no cycling sign (no sign on the other end of the path). When travelling west, the path is at the same point as the "recommended route for cycling" sign. I wondered what t ... [more]

Calf Lane flooded again Location: , Rye Common (England, United Kingdom) Calf Lane is an ORPA, and would be a useful link for cyclists if given a decent surface

Trail on road closure - this should be marked as a cycle route

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

This is marked as a road on my GPS and the online mapping.

This is marked as a road on my GPS and the online mapping.

This restricted byway is the most overgrown and difficult track that I've experienced that is marked as National Cycle Network. I rode mostly in a rut with at times stinging nettles at least as high as my handlebars.

Narrow footway access at Taunton station southern side. This is a bit silly really as there is plenty of space in the vast forecourt.

[via email] Flood on path from SECC to Riverside Museum. Created a few months ago by a worker with a digger #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/8UtPQmwTHM

Ncn7 worst designed cycle path entrance on my route. At least nettles have died down a bit now. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/QDIhlbFwMy
