The cycleway at Charing Cross.

NCN75 busy at Glasgow Green.

This is more like it! 😊 shame it starts as randomly as it stops - how about more of this @GlasgowCC and some permanent barriers? Encourage healthy transport! 😁🚴‍♀️

Building a path that people can care about.

Cycle access at Barfillan Drive.

A fairly new cycle link on Hopehill Road, including some new green space created by shortening the former carriageway on this side of the closure.

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102058.

The rebuilt Polmadie Bridge is now open. See also #102059.

The space-wasting hatching on Dyke Road has been removed and a cycleway installed instead.

People are already (unofficially) using the southbound cycleway, before merging back into the roadway. #SouthCityWay

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.

Now that the excellent new ramp next to Victoria Bridge has been built, the gates that so often blocked the former route of NCN75 (see #31366) seem to be left open much of the time.

The South City Way already getting used, albeit in the wrong direction!

Progress on the South City Way protected cycle lane.

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).

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. UPDATE 2020: The path is now shut - see #112923.

Fabulous to see the progress with Glasgow's South City Way on my commute. Well rolled surface, low chamfered kerb = good pedal clearance to maximise width, generous angles and, of course, it will be uni-directional. #stepchange in street de ... [more]

Stud lighting on the path into Richmond Park.

A raised crossing leading into Richmond Park.

The far end of Oatlands Square features a raised crossing, much neater than at the entrance.

Oatlands Square, with a sculpture and seating off to the side, leaving the path unobstructed.

Plenty of tyre tracks in the frost, and the lamppost (previously in the middle of the path as seen in #86772) has been relocated to the edge.

FAO @Darkerside @GoBikeGlasgow @isersmalone New Balvicar St cycle gate. [A site where car parking regularly blocked the cycle track entrance before e.g. #93805.]

This kind of (relatively) cheap and quick infrastructure would help so much in so many places... more please #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

I do like the finished Bridge to Nowhere... #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

New floating bus stop on Pollokshaws Road in use… more please. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

#GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 when you are on an okay route ✅ ( albeit narrow ?)sculpture ✅ then closure and diversion ❌

Clyde Pl cycle lane - possibly highest quality one in Glasgow? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

I do like segregated paths where they occur. This one at Tradeston is a bit wiggly but still better than traffic. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Not perfect but I like it a lot. If only it joined up with lots more. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 #hometime

This bit on London Rd is good, tho traffic lights are oddly synched. If you follow route to Saltmarket, it vanishes. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Shared cycle/walking path from Transport Museum is generally good to use, even with puddles! #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Good. More please? #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Nice job! Makes cycling along the Clyde so much nicer @GlasgowCC @SustransScot #NCN75

No break in the cycle lane for this minor side road. I'm not sure that this 'Road Narrows' sign is still needed, since the rest of the road has been narrowed to match the section ahead, and in what is now a 30mph zone having two seems pa ... [more]

I don't know why Glasgow hasn't provided angled kerbs on the divider strip as it has elsewhere.

These two wouldn't be on the road if it weren't for the protected cycle lanes. But see #90599.

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

Pedal on Parliament feeder ride on Shields Road

A bus stop bypass on Paisley Road cycletrack.

The path past the Rowing Club is now surfaced, with LED catseye lights.

New path connecting Dalmarnock to the new bridge across the River Clyde to the new Cuningar Loop park.

New straight and lit cyclepath replacing steps outside the Sheriff Court. The old path next to the river has been retained for pedestrians.

It's cold, so jeans and hoodie for cycling journey. The fixings for the bollard nearest the camera appear to be loose.

Apart from the pointless wiggle, quite good.

New cycle-through in Springburn #permeability #glasgowcycling

The new section of cycleway along Clyde Place.

The George V Bridge crossing in the Clyde Place cycleway, where a parallel arrangement for pedestrians and cyclists has been used.

Working on better cycling access to the M8 underpass at Craigton Rd/Jura St #glasgowcycling

Here's one of the better junctions, with direct diagonal cycle crossing. Lights not working yet.

LED catseyes fitted on Forth & Clyde Canal towpath in Maryhill

LED catseyes fitted on Forth & Clyde Canal towpath in Maryhill

Phew! Cycle track on Elderslie St has priority over new access road. Rare credit to @GlasgowCC (cc @GoBikeGlasgow)

Glasgow has taken a lane away from motor vehicles in order to install this cycleway.

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

'No Entry except cycles' at a link with Ascot Court housing development

The Langlands Cycle Path in Govan, with separate space for cyclists going in each direction

The new Langlands Cycle Path features pieces of art incorporated in the surface next to the cycleway

Start of the Langlands Cycle Path, outside Elderpark Library, rebuilt from #36125. Note the infill tar put up against the badly-installed dropped kerb!

The Anderston Bridge now open!

New Connect2 Anderston Bridge in Glasgow, over M8 motorway, connecting Waterloo St in the city centre, with Argyle St in the West End.

Priority for cycle track over garage entrance on Waterloo St Connect2 cycle track, shortly before launch. The triangle markings are interesting.

A new section of cyclepath linking Camlachie Street with Gallowgate

New path to Camlachie Street

LED catseyes on NCN7. The red light is the tail light of a passing cyclist.

An LED catseye on NCN7

Flush LED catseye on part of NCN7 in Whiteinch. These have been installed between the current starting point of the railway path at Smith Street, and the Primrose Street off-ramp in Scotstoun.

Newly rebuilt path connecting Kelvingrove Park and Kelvinbridge, on NCN 756 Kelvin Cycleway, almost ready for opening. This replaces a narrow timber walkway on a difficult site, partly on a riverbank, and passes under a former railway bridg ... [more]

Newly rebuilt path linking Kelvingrove Park and Kelvinbridge, part of NCN 756 Kelvin Cycleway, at point where path goes from riverbank to under a former railway bridge. On the right is a former railway tunnel mouth, making this quite a tric ... [more]

Ramped bridge over motorway - this one has no steps!

Slip lane for cyclists leaving Balshagray Avenue going to Clyde Tunnel (cycles not allowed in main car tunnel), with plenty of tyre marks visible

Slip lane from Clydeside Expressway for cyclists going to Clyde Tunnel (cycles not permitted in main car tunnel)

Scotstoun to Jordanhill Nature Trail path passing under Danes Drive. This path runs along a former railway trackbed.

Access to the Scotstoun Leisure Centre is now available from the Jordanhill Nature Trail. The gate here used to be locked shut.

Scotstoun to Jordanhill Nature Trail path, next to allotments

Bus stop treatment on new two-way cycleway on London Road, much better than #33497 further along the road. Magnatom has produced a video featuring this section of route:

Road closure exempting cycles at foot of Dixon Street, and Toucan Crossing on Clyde Street, leading to NCN 75 on riverside. Useful link from St Enoch Square.

Newly dropped kerbs on approach to Glasgow Green, with People's Palace in background

Traffic calming scheme that uses cycle lanes on dual carriageway to calm the traffic, and the markings have even been reinstated after resurfacing! Unfortunately, some motorists have not worked out what the cycle lanes are for.

Contraflow cycle lane on Argyle Street in Glasgow City Centre. Includes cycle traffic signals at junction with Union Street/Jamaica Street.

Cycle track and firepath at end of Dixon Road, plus toucan crossing across Aikenhead Road

Right turn lane for cycles only at point on dual carriageway where motor vehicles cannot turn right. Connects Alderman Road cycle lanes to Colleges Cycle Route in Jordanhill.

New ramp from Speirs Wharf down to Cowcaddens

Cycleway between Cowcaddens and Braid Square/Speirs Wharf

Garscube Landscape Link underpass at Dobbies Loan Further info at

NCN 7 cycle path on abandoned railway bridge and viaduct in Whiteinch, Glasgow, complete with old telegraph poles!
