People could make Glasgow tidier!

The abandoned bike still blocking part of the Maryhill Tesco cycle parking stand, leaving little space for intending customers.

Maryhill Tesco cycle parking regularly full up, unlike the massive car park which always has lots of free spaces.

The cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall (see #95296) has been removed without replacement, meaning bikes are getting locked to railings here and around the corner.

Bike parking needed here. (There's some hidden behind the van.)

Overflowing cycle parking, still only 4 stands at this prime city centre location.

If someone’s going to nick a bike they’re not going to do it outside the Sheriffs Court right? Just as well, as their bike lock ups are pure useless. #onjurydutyforabreak https://t.co/4bgcdP0ICy

The cycle parking stands outside the Kelvin Hall are hopeless and need replaced. Bolting stands onto block paving is not sufficiently secure in a street environment. See also #95251.

It turns out bolting cycle parking stands to block paving isn't very secure. Who knew? See also #95296.

The bins seem to have gone, but more bike parking is still needed in Cambridge Street. One bike looked like it was abandoned. This will be an important parking location for anyone new to cycling when the Woodside mini-Holland is built.

Damaged cycle parking on New City Road.

@GBCycleEmbassy #cyclehack @waitrose byres road - GLA. Sheffield stands too close to the wall ❌ open to elements ❌ inadequate hoop ❌ https://t.co/zL960WlfP8

@CycleInfraDay Mustn't forget the secure parking #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/OGuEeTQSkS

On-street cycle parking in a mainly residential area. Not secure enough for longer stays.

A lack of cycle parking outside student accommodation offices.

Cycle stands blocked in by bins.

I won't be locking my bike to these rusty old stands next to a big puddle!

Plenty of car parking spaces, but only tree cages for cycles to be locked too. Every street in Yorkhill needs more bike stands.

The sign of yet another student residence complex without bike parking.

Cycle parking at Hillington East station up against the wall. No room for bike to rest either side of the stand.

Cycle parking at Morrisons supermarket.

Is there adequate cycle parking at the Maclay student residences? The bikes on the railing suggest not, but the chap on the bike coming from inside the complex suggests there might be.

Cycle parking at the Kelvin Hall, replacing #31550 where a new extension has been built. But the stands are bolted onto block paving and have since shown the shortcomings of that method of fixing (see #95251 and #95296).

There are several of these motorcycle parking stands dotted around Yorkhill, but not so many bicycle stands.

Bikes parked outside newly built student accommodation. Visitors' bikes, residents' bikes? Perhaps there is secure bike parking inside the complex, I don't know, but there are no stands for bike parking outside.

The cycle parking that used to be outside the Beith Street entrance to Partick station (seen in #33212) has been removed. But there's plenty of space for replacement cycle parking, including the big double deck racks, which would relieve th ... [more]

The cycle parking seen in #22101 has been removed. The stumps of the stands are just visible. No obvious replacement.

I don't think the shape of the Tesco cycle parking stands is to allow them to be shoved under a ledge!

A lot of money was spent completely rebuilding Dalmarnock station, and yet the cycle parking has been placed far too close to a wall in what looks like quite a dodgy corner. All the barriers around the Dalmarnock Road/Clyde Gateway junct ... [more]

Damaged cycle parking stand in Bothwell St.

Some more cycle stands are needed in Hope Street to supplement the ones next to Central Station.

A damaged cycle stand on West Regent Street at Wellington Street.

Although the cycle parking stands in the Osborne St car park have been painted, they are still in a cramped corner and there is still demand for some over at King's Court (in background).

Cycle parking not fixed down properly at Tesco, and would be better sited around the front of the store.

If we are to achieve mass cycling, we'll need more stands than this!

Need more stands! This is right in the heart of the city centre.

Wheeltwister cycle parking at the sheriff court.

Cycle parking in Argyle Street full up, and a taxi driver parking in the contraflow cycle lane.

Cycle parking in Buchanan Street full up again.

More cycle parking stands needed in St Enoch Square. The nearest stand was full when I got back.

More cycle parking stands needed in St Enoch Square.

More cycle parking needed in Argyle Street.

Wow @Morrisons Shawlands is so generous for its space for 4 bikes... Seriously... Why... https://t.co/FvWSstUqop

@GlasgowCC Insufficient bike parking in #Shawlands - people shouldn't have to lock bikes to pedestrian barriers https://t.co/vsFWlASExI

Found this in my gallery, forgot I had it tbh. Not enough parking at the uni halls off Maryhill road it seems..... https://t.co/EUHGjQQ3mU

Despite the wet weather on this Saturday afternoon in October, the Cambridge Street cycle parking at Sauchiehall Street is completely full. More stands needed, and the commercial bins are still being stored against the stands.

Cycle parking full up. There used to be rather more stands at this popular location in Byres Road (see #27544). Why was the number reduced?

The single cycle parking stand outside Shields Road subway station (compare to the car park seen in #70767), and some white van pavement parking.

Exposed cycle parking outside Kelvindale Station, although it is unlikely that many people would cycle to this station, rather than the nearby and more useful Anniesland station.

Although still accessible, the new cycle parking at Kelvinbridge station is surrounded by building contractor's skips, hoardings and containers, making it rather unwelcoming.

Flattened cycle parking stands in Stockwell Street, next to the contraflow bus lane. See #65108 taken two weeks earlier.

A cycle parking hoop that's been twisted around so any bike parked on it would obstruct footway and adjacent cycleway. Plus taxi drivers ignoring advance stop lines again.

Messy hire bike parking obstructing cycleway.

Glad I didn't lock my bike to either of these Sheffield stands #bikeparking #Glasgow http://t.co/ZlnZkXI86N

Doesn't locking the bike facilities at front door of Glasgow New Vic hospital discourage active travel? @NHS_HS http://t.co/BvVt8pRyJQ

Cycle parking obstructed by Christmas market in Argyle Street.

Notice saying no access to cycle parking from 6AM on 16th November, but not saying how long for. Notice still in place two weeks later.

Busy cycle parking in Mitchell Street

Not many empty spaces on the cycle parking at Glasgow Queen Street railway station

The cycle parking for the Buchanan Galleries shopping centre has been positioned at the rear entrance, handy for the car park!

A single parking stand provided in shopping area near the Langlands Cycle Path, and no dropped kerb for cyclists heading to and from the path

Busy cycle parking

Cycle parking full

Only 3 cycle parking stands were provided at the top of Union Street, but more are required, and there's space for a few more.

Abandoned bike frame, rusty cycle stand, fly-tipping and general decay bringing the area down, and deterring cyclists from using stands.

The single cycle parking stand at Kelvinbridge Subway station is only visible to people arriving along a riverside path, and there is no cycle parking in the Park & Ride car park on the other side of the building. UPDATE: Some cycle park ... [more]

B&Q cycle parking

Tight squeeze between stands and cycle shelter supports (see #44075 for main photo)

Cycle parking stands at Queen Street station are now well used, so perhaps about time for another expansion (update of #29108)

Room for some more cycle parking

There are two sets of cycle parking stands in the car park underneath Tesco store, one at each doorway, but no cycle parking stands at Maryhill Road entrances where bikes are often found locked to railings. The underground car park is also ... [more]

Someone uses it! Lock and extension cable on wheeltwister cycle parking stand at SECC main entrance UPDATE: This "facility" has been replaced. See #55962.

Full up! Five bikes on the two cycle parking stands at the side of Greggs in Byres Road.

This is what awaits cyclists arriving at the Gallowgate entrance to The Forge Shopping Centre, Parkhead. Duke St entrance at #35702

Cycle parking at new Riverside Museum has been reported as completed full on several occasions, and is quite full even on a wet day here. Stands are all at slightly different angles, so will cost somewhat more than standard stands. Also ... [more]

In demand cycle parking stands in West Nile Street. More could be located on the other side of the junction. UPDATE: More cycle parking stands installed (see #37640)

"Cycles parked here are left at your own risk". No-one risking getting their wheels twisted today! UPDATE: This "facility" has been replaced. See #55962.

Recycling bin blocking bike parking

Cycle parking rack at Morrison's supermarket, Partick. It seems this is not the only Morrison's to have such appalling cycle parking - see #30836.

Tightly spaced cycle parking in corner of huge car park

Dark her no lighting for safety at night and rack obscured by recycling bn so racks cant be used. Quite a quiet place so maybe not the safest ... other racks down the stairs on platform may be safer

Low cycle parking stands at Lidl. The barriers for the shopping trolleys were a more suitable height.

Experimental cycle parking inside Charing Cross Multistorey Car Park. The bars are hinged and the bracket on the end attaches to the handlebars either side of the stem, then secured with your own long shank padlock. Never known to be used. ... [more]

Fenced off cycle parking

Cycle parking at B&Q, Parkhead Forge Retail Park. Obviously no cyclists due in today, so use the opportunity to park the turf and sheds there.

Damaged cycle parking stand on corner of Berkeley Street and Granville Street, near Mitchell Theatre. UPDATE: The replacement cycle parking is covered! See #46738.
