I've never worked out if these strips are badly installed drainage (for the boggy grass to the right), or anti-cycling rumble strips. A swimming contest can be seen in the background.

There is an unmarked speed hump either side of the Cleveden Road bridge on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, which are quite hard to spot if you don't know they are there.

A connection between Netherton Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal, with damaged sign, mud, and a chicane barrier.

A barrier hindering access to the National Cycle Network, near the Kelvin Aqueduct.

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A pole minus its signs. Now just Sustrans stickers.

Signs pointing in random directions on the path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue and Great Western Road.

A path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue.

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

An unsurfaced link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath from the end of a residential part of Netherton Road. See also #100261.

A canal towpath access path, unsigned, and comprising just a dirt path. Why is this not surfaced to the same standard as the main path?

Security advice on the new cycle stands at the bridge to the Murano Street student halls complex.

New cycle stands at the bridge to the Murano Street student halls complex, with CCTV coverage, and a forgiving kerb!

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

Diversion sign for Sighthill path closure.

An extremely narrow section of path along the canal below the Ruchill St bridge. Shameful that something so bad could have been built in modern times!

The canal path goes under a modern road bridge on a very narrow section of path (see #92011), but it is possible to bypass it by going up the ramp to Ruchill St and crossing to rejoin the canal path beyond the bridge.

A barrier with a gap at the side on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

A mix of route signs at Speirs Wharf.

The canal path at Port Dundas Basin.

The Pinkston Watersports Centre at Port Dundas Basin.

The end of the canal path at the entrance to Pinkston Watersports Centre.

A path that is still open during the Sighthill redevelopment, alongside Port Dundas Basin.

An old canal bridge on Castle Street, but there are steps on the other side so not useful for cycling.

Lambhill Stables is now a café

The unsurfaced canal path from Bishopbriggs finally arrives at Lambhill Bridge. Much quicker (and cleaner) to use NCN754 across the other side of the canal, but what if you live in the area around Aultbea Street?

The cobble replacement work only goes so far, so together with the bumpy path opposite Speirs Wharf means the canal path is still not the ideal route into the city from the northwest that it could be.

Access from Baird's Brae to the canal bridge and city-bound path is cobble-free, but the left turn towards Maryhill involves crossing a strip of cobbles.

Some new surfacing on the canal path at Baird's Brae, partly replacing cobbles

The path from Vaila St to Balmore Road, and its connection onto the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

Access between the path beyond Lochburn Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. Behind the camera, rough paths continue through the woods towards Vaila St.

The Halloween Pend, an old tunnel under the Forth & Clyde Canal. Not much use for cycling, unless you don't mind a bit of scrambling and ankle-deep mud. More information at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcKoypTGPG8

Forth & Clyde Canal towpath access at Cleveden Road.

@carsickglasgow @GlasgowCC What is this barrier here for? Duntreath Ave, Drumry. http://t.co/r5SrZOeqOF

Cyclist forced into being pedestrian on the Off/On ramp to canal route NCN754 at Lochburn Rd. #glasgowcycleinfraday http://t.co/VNXFH6NQPR

On the left, offside access to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kelvin Dock. (Access to the towpath can only be gained from here by crossing over one of the lock gates.) On the right, access to the Kelvin Walkway. Poor surface all round.

Obstructive gate across path alongside canal, although sign says cycles and wheelchair users can use it. This path follows the opposite side of the canal from the main towpath, but serves residential areas well before the next canal bridge.

The segregated cycle track ends and cyclists on the Balmore Road Safer Route To School are meant to walk across the canal bridge on the footway

Barrier across path to canal

Good directions along the canal, but the sign for the Kelvin Walkway is non-reflective and doesn't mention the NCN route number 756.

Route signs on round pole at Old Farm Road. The one for the canal is pointing the wrong way, but the bridge over the canal is clearly visible from here and a sign for this direction isn't really necessary.

Junction of NCN routes 754 and 756 on Forth & Clyde Canal at Kelvin Aqueduct. NCN 756 goes down ramp to Kelvin Walkway/Cycleway (see #36202). UPDATE: Replacement signs have been provided on the pole (see #57264).

Junction of Glasgow Branch of Forth & Clyde Canal with main canal (NCN 754), with signage. Cyclists wanting the towpath towards Kirkintilloch and Falkirk have to cross canal here, using ramp and road underbridge.
