One of several nasty breaks in the asphalt on the path between Caldercuilt Road and Acre Road.

A poor surface in the University Avenue cycle lane, and incursion by a car driver.

Messy obstructed cycleway on Douglas Street, with a totally inappropriate surface. Just like the one on Waterloo Street to the left (see #95475 and #95476).

The ramp at Glendinning Road is still steep and poorly surfaced. There's plenty of room here for a decent ramp to be built.

No dropped kerb at the start of a path connecting Collina Street near new housing development to the Forth & Clyde Canal and Maryhill Road. The path is in poor condition and has some shallow steps in it too.

@MCRCycleSam @RantyHighwayman @CyclingSurgeon @theJeremyVine I guess we should also factor in that you’ll have double deckers coming straight at nearly on the line... 😢 https://t.co/6dNqsRA9eY [See also #139326]

The surface of the path between Prospecthill Circus and Toryglen Road in Rutherglen has still not been improved. This would form a useful alternative to the main Prospecthill Road, including for commuting. But not in this state.

Anyone wanting to avoid the traffic on Argyle Street by using the route in #113424 is faced with this poor quality back lane to get to Corunna Street. Watch out for glass!

The path surface has become mud on this short section.

Path rebuilding work in progress.

Path rebuilding in progress.

One of the signs is clearly not pointing the right way, and the surface is poor, but the path behind the camera is being rebuilt (see #113011).

A big hole in the path between the bollards, and evidence of flooding and poor drainage.

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.

A poor change of surface on the path from Crookston Road into Rosshall Park.

A terrible change of surface on the path from Rosshall Park to Crookston Road. Mind how you go!

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.

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

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.

The connection to NCN7 at Sandholm Terrace is formed with horrible concrete blocks with gaps in between.

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

This is what happens when you resurface the car driving lane and not the cycle lane. A few years later and the surface has deteriorated so much that it can barely support the road markings.

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.

No dropped kerb at the entrance to a signed path linking Netherton Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath.

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.

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

Fences βœ… Crash barriers βœ… 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.

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]

Tree root damage to NCN 7 cycle path in Partick.

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

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.

Quite why this hole has been left in the road I don't know. The cycle lane has been replaced by the cycle track on the right.

The newly built section of the Waterloo St cycle track has been surfaced with little stone blocks, and features this sharp deviation around a new layby. In the background is the toucan crossing across to the Anderston Bridge.

A brand new section of cycle track on Waterloo St, which has been surfaced with silly stone blocks, with little to distinguish it from the footway, unlike the rest of Waterloo St where the distinction is much clearer.

A slight adverse camber on the shiny smooth asphalt cycle track.

The surface on the cycleway is the same shiny smooth asphalt used on the footway. Not good for grip.

A pothole in Radnor Street, with exposed cobbles. UPDATE 2020: Road now resurfaced.

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

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

It's hard to believe that this path is only a few weeks old. Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is ... [more]

One of two people on bikes I saw using this section of the Garscadden Way.

The Garscadden Way almost indiscernible approaching the Drumchapel Road crossing. Only the old access barrier gives a clue to it once being a Strathclyde Regional Council cycle route.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

The Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way meet and head onwards between the trees. The Drumchapel Way comes along the path from Kinfauns Drive and turns, while the path continues on to Annan Drive. The Garscadden Way comes across the grass from ... [more]

A particularly poor piece of path heading to Annan Drive, including a steep drop.

A poor quality path from Kinfauns Drive across to Annan Drive, with a waymarker post for the Drumchapel Way.

Access to the new access path to the Kelvin Walkway in #89472 still needs work done at Bantaskin St. Maybe it isn't finished.

A new surfaced path has replaced the previous boggy access to the Kelvin Walkway from Bantaskin St, seen in #58918.

A new surfaced path has replaced the previous boggy path between the Kelvin Walkway and Bantaskin St. But the kink in the main Kelvin Walkway path hasn't been touched.

Already the new crossing surfacing is being eaten into by trenching works.

@magnatom @carsickglasgow using tablet. Never used surface being removed. http://t.co/WhUfBj6lag [This newspaper article relates: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/glasgow-city-council-spends-thousands-5626645]

Maryhill Rd, potholes so deep you could lose a child in them #glasgowcycleinfraday https://twitter.com/kennymunro/status/563447503572701185

Route sign gives directions to the City Centre only for pedestrians, and cyclists are just meant to know that the segregated cycle route goes there by a more circuitous route. The segregated cycle route has been resurfaced, but the surfa ... [more]

This long groove across the Clyde Gateway/London Road junction is just waiting to catch someone's tyre.

A very poor section of track linking the closed section of Bantaskin Street with the Kelvin Walkway. The sign says "Kelvin Walkway - Authorised Vehicles Only - 4 m.p.h."

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.

A section of the path alongside the Clydeside Expressway has been resurfaced, replacing old broken paving slabs with asphalt.

Poor lumpy asphalt surface on footpath between Balcarres Avenue and Kelvindale Road, which is also quite narrow in places.

Worn out cycle lane on Alderman Road, complete with potholes since it wasn't resurfaced when the outside lane was.
