These heavy bikes eh? https://t.co/X3IWkOwrEC

New but damaged cycle parking at the Vet School. Not best placed with regards to access to the building either.

Two cycle stands installed in Cowan Street ridiculously close together, and attracting abandoned bikes.

Damaged cycle parking placed needlessly close to the wall and other infrastructure.

Damaged cycle parking stand in St Vincent Crescent.

Brand new archaic cycle parking at newly built property in Minerva Street. How do you securely lock a bike to these?

Shop floor stands in use as cycle parking at Pacific Quay.

Residential cycle parking needs to be a bit more secure that just stands in the street. It could also be further away from the kerb to allow room for opening car doors.

Secure cycle parking required at tower blocks in Charles Street. This location is very handy for cycling into the city centre, but better storage is required.

Secure cycle parking required at tower blocks in Charles Street. This location is very handy for cycling into the city centre, but better storage is required.

A damaged cycle parking stand on St Vincent Crescent. The bollards are facing the wrong way, exhibiting a white reflector on the left side of the road and red on the right side of the road. A sacrificial bollard on this side of the cycle pa ... [more]

Damaged cycle parking stands on Jamaica Street. The "except buses, taxis & cycles" sign on the traffic signal is obscured by a sticker.

The end of Miller Street looking towards Argyle Street pedestrian precinct. Argyle Street forms part of the Core Path Network, and as such cycling is supposed to be permitted. However, the signs for the precinct do not says this. One of ... [more]

Five tightly spaced cycle parking stands, unsigned and hidden behind the trolley stack, at Aldi, just off Great Western Road.

Insecure cycle parking outside the shop at Kirklee crossroads. There is a step down at the end of the paving slabs.

A couple of abandoned/damaged bikes at Partick station.

Oft loving this office blocks secure cycle parking!!! 🤣👍🏻 https://t.co/TRKAoByieT

Damaged cycle parking stand in Crow Road.

The cycle parking at Cardonald station has been positioned so close to the walls the end stand is basically unusable, while the others won't support the bikes very well when only one end of the bike is on the stand. But I'm not sure I'd lea ... [more]

This is a housing apartment, and has a private car park, but no cycle park. I have seen many people keep their cycles inside the flat, including me. It is stressful to bring cycle up and down the flat from different floors, and if there was ... [more]

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.

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.

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.
