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.

The cycle route towards Paisley passing under Crookston Road, and following the White Cart. The ramp up to Crookston Road (at #112178) can be seen to the left.

A hair-pin bend in the ramp up from the White Cart path to Crookston Road.

The sign in #33288 still standing defiantly!

As I've mentioned before (see #107159), this is listed in Glasgow City Council's database of cycle routes.

On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

The path from Drumchapel to Annan Drive, Bearsden, is a bit on the narrow side.

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

Shared path to Rigby Gardens, part of traffic-free route through new housing. Could do with more drop kerbs but paths are useful to avoid Shettleston Road.

Glasgow City Council is planning some work to fix this retaining wall on the Kelvin Walkway.

Excellent signage at the Scottish Water work on the Kelvin Walkway Garriochmill Road access, where a short path has been laid to divert around the worksite.

The Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way, approaches Achamore Road.

A scenic section of the Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way, on the Cleddans Burn path.

An information board for the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way.

A poor quality surface at the start of the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way cycle route and Drumchapel Way walking route. The footway on the Goals access road swaps from the north to the south side at this point.

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

Next the Drumchapel Way goes up some shallow steps as it starts to head towards Kinfauns Drive.

The Drumchapel Way continues down some very shallow steps to a bridge across the Garscadden Burn.

A close-up of the marker post that is not for the Drumchapel Way (from #107167). Leg-it around Drumchapel.

Three marker posts, but only two are for the Drumchapel Way, so turn right.

The Drumchapel Way continues.

The Drumchapel Way turns left to join with the Garscadden Way. The Drumchapel Way is a walking route around Drumchapel and the surrounding woodland described at https://forestryandland.gov.scot/images/pdf/rec_pdfs/DrumchapelWoodsLeaflet.pdf

The winter has taken its toll on the Garscadden Way. This is listed as an official cycle route in the council's GIS system at https://glasgowgis.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=0a599fa51e3d4460a615653700769bf7

The path across to the Garscadden Way blocked by fallen branches, but will anyone notice there's a path to be blocked?

I'm sure a better entrance to this path could be built at Knightscliffe Avenue. The plot to the left was only recently rebuilt.

A new path has been provided around house-building works, but has been blocked by fallen security fences.

If it's not for cars then it's alright to park across. Still no surfaced connection to NCN7.

Poor forward visibility on the bit of the Kelvin Walkway that dips down next to the river then climbs back up quite steeply (out of sight around the bend).

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

No dropped kerb at the end of the path linking the two halves of Turnberry Road, so anyone wanting to cycle along the path has to cycle along the footway for a little bit too.

The sign on the right gives destinations and distances, but does not have an arrow, so is effectively a route confirmation sign of the type that should be provided after a junction, not before it. The destinations can be reached by turni ... [more]

The path cyclists are signed along in #100509 does not have a dropped kerb at the end, although there is one is a short distance along the footway near the mini-roundabout.

The route to the canal is signed along the narrow path to the left, to bypass the roundabout.

This is the route pedestrians and wheelchair users are directed along from Drumchapel station (see #100504), a narrow path with a poor inclined surface. Would two wheelchair users be able to pass easily? The far end is shown at #100508.

No actual kerb separating the carriageway and path to the canal, making for a smoother transition.

The riverside path at Yoker, which connects to NCN7.

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

Call this a dropped kerb? Cut-through to Shafton Road.

Parts of the Kelvin Walkway could do with a sweep and having the low-hanging branches cut back.

The entrance to the path at Bredisholm Road is being used as a parking space.

The Bredisholm Road connection to the housing estate is build to a high quality, and is lit, although the path alongside the motorway is only lit by spill from the motorway lighting.

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]

The path looking southwards from the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M) motorway bridge.

The path beneath the A8(M), Scotland's shortest motorway, has now been completed. I can't help but think they could have been more generous on the width. Not that lots of people will use it, but passing a couple of people walking a dog will ... [more]

Bollards at the end of Rhindmuir Road, at the start of the path to Coatbridge Road.

A path into Todds Well, part of the Seven Lochs Wetland Park. http://sevenlochs.org/

The unmade path from Cardowan meets the made paths around Cardowan Moss.

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

Roadworks affecting the signed link between NCN 7 and Partick station, but not clear if the route is open or closed, no diversion, obstructions on the toucan crossing. A poor show all round!

A path connecting to the riverside path in Govan.

The walkway alongside the River Clyde in Govan ends in a dead-end. This is the last junction to access the local road network.

The path joins the car park without a dropped kerb for cyclists to rejoin the carriageway. All that matters seems to be car parking.

The path to Craighall Street being used for getting about by bike.

A small path network connects Craighall Street to the adjoining areas but could be tidier.

No dropped kerb for access to path network at Blackburn Street.

The start of a path that may or may not lead to the Paisley Road cycle track.

Cycles only beyond this point?

If motorway regulations apply up to the sign, shouldn't there be a fence between the motorway and the path?

Nothing to say whether cycling is allowed here or not, although this is where a chain of toucan crossings lead.

Broken path surface and broken glass on the climb up from Drumoyne Road to the Craigton Road underpass.

No dropped kerb at the start of the path from Drumoyne Road to the Craigton Road underpass.

The transition from path to street is not exactly award-winning.

Although narrow at each end (see #98928 and #98993), the middle section of the path between Meiklewood Road and Drumoyne Road is reasonably wide. But it could do with being a bit smoother.

Cycle parking for the new eatery, but this path is a signed cycle route leading to a flight of steps (see #98674), The nearby burn is actually called the Polmadie Burn, not Jenny.

Filtered permeability not so good as #98670 when it comes to bus stop access, only leading to the nearest street, and lacking a dropped kerb on one side of the street!

Good filtered permeability in parts of the new Richmond Gate housing development, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a raised crossing (as at nearby #95369) for this path between the park and the houses?

A new approach path to the M8 motorway underpass at the end of Craigton Road, arranged to dissuade obstructive parking, although this doesn't always work (see #102730).

The path leads to the crossing across Cathcart Road and the cycle route continues across the far side of the crossing in Preston Street.

The path suddenly gets wider!

Reinstated access (possibly temporary) between the Springburn Expressway footbridge and Pinkston Drive, during the Sighthill redevelopment. Old and new buildings can be seen to the left.

I was surprised to find that the path from London Avenue does not connect across Springfield Road to the path past the velodrome on the same alignment. A crossing is needed here.

The finishing touches remain to be done at the new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

A new path at the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

New paths at the Clay Pit local nature reserve. The surface is gravel so not so good for cycling, but was frozen solid with frost when I visited.

A new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

Kerb across end of path between Contin Place and Wyndford Drive, on direct route from Tesco to the Kelvin Walkway. The path could be moved to the left a little, away from the wall, to reduce the problem of the blind corner.

Kerb across end of path from Wyndford Drive to Contin Place.

The path to Riverside Street collapsed when the river level changed. It wasn't looking too good before that either. If I owned one of those flats, I'd be asking my councillor what was going to be done about this.

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.

The path beyond the fence in #95371 has already been built, but isn't being maintained since it is within a construction site.

The path across to Pinkston Road has now been closed for construction work.

The path south from Pinkston Road will be closed until the end of 2018.

The path south from Pinkston Road has now closed.

Desire line to Riverside Museum

Glasgow City Council has proposed stopping up this path leading to vacant land behind the houses, due to it being deemed "unneccessary". ROADS (SCOTLAND) ACT 1984 THE GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL RAASAY STREET (STOPPING UP) ORDER 2017 ... [more]

A nice uncluttered layout leading from cycle path onto Greenlaw Road, but photo taken while waiting for others in group to mend a puncture caused by broken glass on the path.

The people of Pollok have made their own desire lines clear, and they don't match the official paths.

The nearest proper pedestrian crossing to the end of the Brock Burn path is at the far side of the bus station, with continuous pedestrian guard railing all the way there.

The nearest end of the pedestrian guard railing is around the corner from the end of the Brock Burn path, where there is a traffic island crossing point.

The north end of the Brock Burn path is blocked by about 150m of continuous pedestrian guard rail. There needs to be a pedestrian crossing here to make it a viable route to the Silverburn Shopping Centre. See also #90961 and #90962.

The Brock Burn path in Pollok.

There is an 'End of Cycle Route' sign, but the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route continues to the right. It's the route from Haggs Road that's ending.

A cycle bypass has been built for the junction, but left vulnerable to blockage by car parking. Again, no signage.

No sign to say the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route turns right here.

A car blocking the dropped kerb at the top of the ramp from Hillpark Drive. The path itself is not particularly smooth.

Steeply graded woodland path.

A path from Hamilton Road through to Greentree Drive.
