They've finally removed one of the worst barriers on the NCN into Ross Hall Park. Could barely get a regular bike through it let alone in anything slightly bigger before. #spaceforcycling #accessibility https://t.co/4RsK7C80uN [See #9381 ... [more]

Truck parked directly over the cycle path and pedestrian area rather than the directly adjacent parking bay.

Cycle parking at Farmfoods in Drumchapel.

A couple of cycle stands at Drumchapel swimming pool.

The (summer only) free Govan Ferry makes its way across the River Clyde to the Water Row pontoon. It can carry bikes, and details can be found at http://www.getintogovan.com/visit/

Waiting for the (summer only) free Govan Ferry across the River Clyde to the Riverside Museum. Details can be found at http://www.getintogovan.com/visit/

The full length of the Pearce Lane cycle track. For some strange reason, the dropped kerb at Water Row does not extend to the full width of the cycle track.

Next Bike hire bikes at the Govan docking station at Water Row.

A protected cycle lane along Pearce Lane, between Pearce Street and Water Row.

Access from Drumoyne Road industrial estate to the path to Meiklewood Road.

Zigzag ramp from Penicuik Drive down to Myreside Drive. Another useful path added to new estate. Also, helps avoid Shettleston Road.

Shared path to Rigby Gardens, part of traffic-free route through new housing. Could do with more drop kerbs but paths are useful to avoid Shettleston Road.

@RantyHighwayman @peterwalker99 Though this is good design, but it’s in back street of Govan, Glasgow... almost as cyclists don’t ever shop or stop for coffee! https://t.co/qzxO60mslu

An improvement at last at Doune Quadrant and Doune Gardens. Not perfect, but at least usable on a standard bike.

Cycle parking at Milton Library and leisure centre, all up against a kerb.

I've never worked out if these strips are badly installed drainage (for the boggy grass to the right), or anti-cycling rumble strips. A swimming contest can be seen in the background.

The start of the Lincoln Avenue cycle track, seen from the opposite direction to #101264.

The Cycle Quietway through Knightswood links the Orca cycle routes on Dyke Road and Lincoln Avenue without going along Alderman Road. The entrance to the Lincoln Avenue cycle track is rather cluttered and the cycle track itself can barel ... [more]

Signage for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood on Loanfoot Avenue, but it's shorter, quicker and on roads just as quiet to head to the Forth & Clyde Canal along Loanfoot Avenue in the opposite direction.

Signage for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood at Riglaw Place, but it's shorter, quicker and also just as quiet to get to the Forth & Clyde Canal via Commore Drive to the left.

'Recommended route for cyclists' signage for the old signed route between Kelso Street and Garscadden railway station.

A Cycle Quietway has been signed through Knightswood, but doesn't use the newly widened and converted shared-use footway on Dyke Road.

Signage for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood, at the junction of Kirkton Avenue and Holehouse Drive, with another sign pointing to Garscadden railway station in the background.

A route sign for the Cycle Quietway through Knightswood on Kirkton Avenue.

A "Cycle Quietway" has been signed through Knightswood, crossing Alderman Road here at Commore Drive. Again the buffer strip between the car parking bay and the cycle lane does not allow sufficient space for a car to be parked between th ... [more]

The end of the widened footway and transition onto an on-road painted cycle lane along Alderman Road.

Probably the start of the cycleway alluded to in #107051.

Line segregation, apparently.

Signage for an on-road section of the Garscadden Way on Lillyburn Place.

Signage for the Drumchapel Way, and above it, what appears to be the last remaining directional signage for the Garscadden Way.

The Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way, approaches Achamore Road.

A scenic section of the Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way, on the Cleddans Burn path.

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.

The Drumchapel Way on The Antonine Road.

The Drumchapel Way meets The Antonine Road. Glasgow City Council's GIS system shows a path (called Drumry Wood) across the site across the road, even though it is securely fenced off.

The Drumchapel Way leaves Halgreen Avenue and takes the steps up to The Antonine Road. There is a bypass ramp, but no dropped kerb at the end for anyone following the route by bike.

Signage for the Drumchapel Way on Halgreen Avenue.

Cycle parking outside the shops on Kinfauns Drive, although access is restricted from the road by railings.

Kinfauns Drive outside the Drumchapel Shopping Centre and Health Centre. Bike parking both sides but access restricted by extensive use of guard railings. The Drumchapel Way crosses the road here and the signs can just be seen.

Some steps on the Drumchapel Way, with a by-pass ramp, approaching Kinfauns Drive.

The Drumchapel Way marker post and information board for those coming from Kinfauns Drive.

Next the Drumchapel Way goes up some shallow steps as it starts to head towards Kinfauns Drive.

The Drumchapel Way continues down some very shallow steps to a bridge across the Garscadden Burn.

A close-up of the marker post that is not for the Drumchapel Way (from #107167). Leg-it around Drumchapel.

Three marker posts, but only two are for the Drumchapel Way, so turn right.

The Drumchapel Way continues.

Navigation on the off-road sections of the Drumchapel Way is by marker post. Here the posts indicate a turn to the right.

Information about Garscadden Burn Park and the Drumchapel Way.

The Drumchapel Way leaves Southdeen Avenue and doubles back into the Garscadden Burn Park.

On-road sections of the Drumchapel Way are indicated by small circular signs attached to lampposts.

The Drumchapel Way turns left to join with the Garscadden Way. The Drumchapel Way is a walking route around Drumchapel and the surrounding woodland described at https://forestryandland.gov.scot/images/pdf/rec_pdfs/DrumchapelWoodsLeaflet.pdf

Exciting to spot Sauchiehall Street's new 'avenue' taking shape in Glasgow. πŸ‘€ πŸŽ‰ πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈπŸš²πŸŒ³πŸšŒπŸš™ πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈ Just couldn't help noticing the state of what appears to be the final cycle surface, in contrast to the ne ... [more]

A mention of the cycle route and bike parking on the new totem pole outside Partick Interchange, but no mention of the hire bikes.

Since my last visit painted cycle lanes have appeared on Hamilton Road west of Daldowie Road. Perhaps some of the extensive hatching could have been sacrificed in order to provide some segregation.

Cycling home with Flora along Pollokshaws Road. Traffic management for the shared path resurfacing better cycle provision than path itself! Buy hey, 6 lanes for motors obviously essential https://t.co/Whhbubr5SC

A very old blue-bordered cycle route sign on Broomhill Drive. There are no further signs on this route because it is the last in a series of signs for various destinations around the Clydeside Expressway's Clyde Tunnel junction, including a ... [more]

New and old route signs at Broomhill Drive.

A shared footway in Victoria Park Drive South, and signage for local destinations.

A shared footway in quiet Glendore Street, and I think the raised crossing in Medwyn Street in the foreground could be better aligned with the footway.

The Loch Lomond railway path used to carry on here, but now flats block the route as well as the expanded car showroom that initially took over some of the land. NCN7 continues along the footway across South Street to the right.

Different styles of sign on the Primrose Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path.

This appears to be the end of the Dyke Road cycleway and the cycle route to the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. I'm surprised the footway hasn't been widened behind the toucan crossing traffic signals to allow more room for turning.

The Dyke Road cycleway ends at a new toucan crossing which provides a connection to Speirshall Close. There were new 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs in Speirshall Close, but I couldn't work out where they were leading. NCN7 can be ... [more]

The spacing of the orcas changes opposite the junction of Moorhouse Avenue to accommodate turns to and from the cycleway.

The new section of widened shared-use footway on Dyke Road, with a surface mounted sign.

The traffic signals on Alderman Road have acquired a cycle advance green of about 6 seconds before the full green in one direction, plus a toucan crossing on this side for those cycling down the footway of Lincoln Avenue.

The Advance Stop Line box has acquired a stop line across the cycle lane too.

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue, with a staggered uncontrolled pedestrian crossing.

A bus stop bypass on Lincoln Avenue, next to Knightswood Park. Most bus passengers will be alighting at this stop rather than boarding. Looking back at my photos of this route, I notice that only this section has the 'No Loading' kerb ma ... [more]

The new cycleway on Lincoln Avenue. If you don't want to turn left into Archerhill Road you need to leave the cycleway, but there's nothing to say this.

The new cycle track in Lincoln Avenue, past the new BMX centre in Knightswood Park. This bit looks like it may be prone to flooding.

What I take to be the final layout at the Archerhill Road bus stop. The final white line (seen in #100294) directing cyclists into the undropped kerb has been blacked out.

The new cycle track in Archerhill Road turns right into Lincoln Avenue.

The road does not extend as far as the flats in Lauderdale Gardens, making room for some grass and trees. But no dropped kerbs at either end of the path to assist with cycling through the area.

Well used cycle parking in George Square.

A ride along the Glasgow spur of the Forth and Clyde Canal has ended up at Applecross Street Basin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forth_and_Clyde_Canal

The route to the canal is signed along the narrow path to the left, to bypass the roundabout.

This is the route pedestrians and wheelchair users are directed along from Drumchapel station (see #100504), a narrow path with a poor inclined surface. Would two wheelchair users be able to pass easily? The far end is shown at #100508.

The cycle route directions from Drumchapel station to the Forth & Clyde Canal are different from the pedestrian and wheelchair user directions.

For some reason there is a signed cycle route between the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie and Drumchapel railway station.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Kearn Avenue and Keal Avenue.

A pedestrian crossing across Great Western Road that could be upgraded to accommodate cycling between Keal Avenue and Kearn Avenue.

A gate with gaps both sides protecting the access path from Great Western Road to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. The curved walls are similar to gateways created at a number of cycle path accesses around Glasgow.

A gate at the end of the path from the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Great Western Road, with gaps both sides, but only access to the footway and westbound carriageway.

A path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue.

The riverside path at Yoker, which connects to NCN7.

The riverside path meets Yoker Ferry Road at the ferry slipway.

I was expecting something a little more physical for separation than just paint, but maybe it's not finished yet. UPDATE: Orcas have since been installed.

My thanks to @GlasgowCC for cutting back shubbery blind-siding cyclists at this difficult junction on Pollokshaws Rd . Cycles giving way to vehicles at the junction is not great but the poor view of the vehicles from the high vegetation mad ... [more]

An uphill section on the farm access road and cycle route adjacent to the new M8 motorway.

Directions for anyone getting over the locked gate in #99820, but why no directions for the route to the left, which leads to Baillieston and Glasgow?

A junction between a section of cyclepath alongside the M8 motorway and Bredisholm Road coming off its bridge over the motorway and A8 dual carriageway. If the intent was that cyclists would go to Bargeddie (and not straight ahead to Bailli ... [more]

Signs on the farm road adjacent to the newly built M8 motorway at Bargeddie.

A sharp bend to the right, and also a road to the left.

A new farm access road created as part of the M8 motorway upgrade project.

The disused cattle grid on Bredisholm Road survived all the M8 motorway upgrade works.

All this former farmland is being built on.

This core path is now a dead end, blocked by the A8 Swinton Roundabout.

This core path is now a dead end, blocked by the A8 Swinton Roundabout.

The path looking southwards from the A8(M) motorway bridge.
