Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

A gate across Monymusk Place, on the Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way. The Garscadden Wood path starts on the right a short distance beyond the gate.

A gate with gaps both sides protecting the access path from Great Western Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. The curved walls are similar to gateways created at a number of cycle path accesses around Glasgow.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

The riverside path meets Yoker Ferry Road at the ferry slipway.

A locked gate and a bumpy track beyond. Although there is no sign to say where this leads, anyone exiting here is furnished with cycling directions (see #99821).

A gate across the path to Coatbridge Road. See also #99722.

I guess they thought this old piece of path would be acceptable within this huge motorway building project. If someone ever did shut this gate properly and someone in a wheelchair needed to open it, it would be extremely difficult to do ... [more]

Rogerfield Road is still blocked by a gate, although able-bodied pedestrian access is clearly possible. A poor show considering the Core Path status it received.

I'm guessing that as part of the proposed cycle route along Jura Street, this entrance to Bellahouston Park will be rebuilt to include a wider gate and better path around the back of the bowling green pavilion.

Now that the excellent new ramp next to Victoria Bridge has been built, the gates that so often blocked the former route of NCN75 (see #31366) seem to be left open much of the time.

An interesting bollard, but access to the cycle path from the carriageway of Cotton Street involves either cycling along the footway or bumping the low kerb and going through the dirt.

A back lane between Victoria Park Gardens South and Marlborough Avenue signed as a recommended route for cyclists. There is a gate across part of the width of the lane (just visible) to stop through motor traffic.

The Fastlink busway was built without any dropped kerbs outside the Festival Park gate, hindering cycle access between the Science Centre and Festival Park. The footway here is to be converted to shared use.

The northern footway of Govan Road is being rebuilt for shared use.

Building works at Partick Bus Station have meant that the point where cyclists join Merkland St carriageway has now been closed, and cyclists are forced to share a narrow footway already obstructed by (unrelated) scaffolding. However, t ... [more]

The gates have been locked shut across the Kelvin Cycleway/NCN756 for the duration of a dinosaurs event in Botanic Gardens.

Old Dumbarton Road with the cycleway on the far side, passing an old gate.

The Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route crosses the zebra crossing across Auldhouse Road, then heads up Holeburn Road.

A gate on the access to the Allander Way.

Narrow entrance to Clyde Tunnel. Location: Drumoyne, Glasgow (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Manhandling bikes through the first of two kissing gates on the path between Cardowan Moss and Frankfield Loch.

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

NCN75 closed for construction of the Smartbridge (seen in background), with diversion via Dalmarnock backstreets.

Gate blocking most of the width of the access ramp to the Clyde Walkway/NCN75 at Dalmarnock Bridge. There's still no dropped kerb, despite repeated requests to Glasgow City Council, for cyclists coming from the road. However, a sign has bee ... [more]

Construction work on one of the gates that will shut off NCN75 during the Commonwealth Games. Temporary lighting has also been provided on this normally unlit path.

One of the gates that will shut off NCN75 during the Commonwealth Games. The diversion route is to the right, seen at #59288.

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 Auldhouse Road exit from Greenbank Park is blocked by a railing and there is no dropped kerb, although the road closure opposite on Holeburn Road has a cycle gap.

End of path approaching Balmore Road on Safer Route To School, with Cyclists Dismount sign

New tactiles and non-flush dropped kerbs, but poor road surface at gateway on Dumbreck Road shared-use footway.

Barrier across path to canal

St Mark St gate, Tollcross Park - impossible to get a bike through.

Kissing gate at Caldercuilt Road entrance to Maryhill Park, with cycle signage

Kissing gate and steps with awkward ramp at one side. I approached from the wrong side to use the ramp, and the central railing stopped me changing sides without backtracking. This is the Acre Drive entrance to Maryhill Park, and a conne ... [more]

Kissing gate at entrance to Maryhill Park. This is on the route of the Kelvin Walkway, and is the Summerston scheme's off-road connection to the Kelvin Cycleway.

Gates are closed across part of the Kelvin Cycleway (NCN756) after dark. How quaint!

Gap next to gate is awkward to get bikes through on useful route between Bargeddie and Glasgow which bypasses the Baillieston Interchange motorway junction

Access to the Scotstoun Leisure Centre is now available from the Jordanhill Nature Trail. The gate here used to be locked shut.

Gate with gap at side for cycles on road up to Waukmill Reservoir

Gates across NCN 75 cycle path at Custom House Quay that make turn unnecessarily awkward

Kissing gate in Maryhill Park, on the Kelvin Walkway UPDATE: This gate has now been removed (see #50220)!
