113114Photo #113114An old railway track alongside the A752 at Drumpellier Country Park, which would make a better route for the Seven Lochs Trail than the footway of the A752. It just needs a path to be built on the trackbed and across to a road crossing. Viewing opposite direction from #113115.Track:

113074Photo #113074Electric bike hire stands at North Woodside Road. This area will be rearranged as part of the Connecting Woodside project, but at the moment any ebikes placed in the stands would be obstructing the footway, and due to the location of the dropped kerb also the cycle cut-through (the faded markings for which can just be seen).

Not the first time a bike hire station has been positioned in the way of a cycle track, see #92632.
