Just as I was about to leave Victoria Park, I noticed this bollard emblazoned "Park Cycle Route End".

Pedantic signage for the Clyde Tunnel northbound entrance and southbound exit. Why sign the exit from here?

A route sign for NCN7/75 on Linthaugh Road, and cycle only access on Dormanside Road.

Signs at the point where the main path goes beneath the Crookston Road bridge, including a sign for the alternative route in case of flooding on the main path.

The White Cart path meets Crookston Road. The signs have vanished from the signpost.

Signs at the junction of NCN7/75 and the riverside path in Rosshall Park.

A complete lack of signage at the turn in the Glasgow-Paisley cycle route, although the route ahead links to the same place if you know where you are going.

A complete lack of signage, save for some dilapidated Sustrans stickers, at the left turn into Rosshall Park.

Allanton Drive is on the Govan-Cardonald Quietway, but which way do you turn at the next junction. The sign with the tiny writing at the junction says, but it can't be seen when you need to select your lane position.

Faded route signs pointing in random directions.

The Kelvin Walkway diversion via Contin Place. Still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Wyndford Drive.

Diversion signed with blue (permanent) rather than yellow NCN stickers. And still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Contin Place.

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]

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.

An information board for the Cleddans Burn path, part of the Garscadden Way and Drumchapel Way.

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.

There were no signs for the Drumchapel Way at the junctions at either end of Hecla Avenue, only this one midway along the street.

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.

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

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

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.

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

The Balmoral Street off-ramp from the Loch Lomond railway path. The first time I've seen a postal district on a cycle route sign.

The sign on the right gives destinations and distances, but does not have an arrow, so is effectively a route confirmation sign of the type that should be provided after a junction, not before it. The destinations can be reached by turni ... [more]

A route sign not pointing the correct way to the Forth & Clyde Canal. And if that's a cycle parking stand, it may be better positioned in front of the shops, not at the rear. On the plus side, a dropped kerb has been installed since #332 ... [more]

One route sign has two poles and is pointing the right way, but one of the signs sharing lamppost is pointing the wrong way. Plus a rather messy path junction.

Route signs pointing in various directions, facing people coming from the Forth & Clyde Canal at Blairdardie. Wheelchair users appear to have been forgotten about in the signs pointing to the unnamed railway station (Drumchapel).

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

Signs for getting to Drumchapel station by different modes. Wheelchair users should ignore the directions given here if going to the eastbound platform, since the footbridge at the station is stepped. There are no cycle facilities on the ro ... [more]

The sign in #100506 facing the wrong way and a sign for the westbound platform at an unnamed railway station. The direction to the eastbound platform is different and the sign for it is visible in the distance.

A damaged sign facing the wrong way.

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.

Is Bowling over the bridge? No.

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way, and 'No Through Road' signs on the road that leads there, without 'except cycles' plates.

A pole minus its signs. Now just Sustrans stickers.

Signs pointing in random directions on the path linking the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to Duntreath Avenue and Great Western Road.

A signed link to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but unsurfaced and overgrown. Not the same link as shown in #100262.

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]

Brand Street approaching the turn into Harvie Street. But how is anyone meant to know to turn onto the shared footway rather than the carriageway at the junction?

A route sign for the spur from the Glasgow-Cumbernauld cycle route to the Colleges cycle route facing the wrong way. In the background, the anonymous ramp to the North Hanover Street shared footway (see also #98888).

Signage for the cycle parking at the People's Palace.

Now that the riverside path has reopened, I notice a sign for NCN75 pointing up the old diversion around the former Polmadie Bridge, and now that path has shut for work on the old bridge piers.

The signed route finally reaches the remaining part of Richmond Park.

The route sign directs cyclists up a flight of steps at the new eatery, where once there was a path into the park (see #29467). This is not good enough!

Despite the footway of residential Old Polmadie Road being designated as shared-use (see #98669), the narrow footway of the busy New Rutherglen Road has not. However, this non-standard route signage seems to assume it has been. A new eat ... [more]

When the Polmadie Bridge is rebuilt, the route to Glasgow Green will be straight ahead, across the split toucan crossing and down the ramp to Old Polmadie Road.

I'm not really sure what the point of this sign is.

A route sign hidden behind a tree on Nithsdale Road.

A sign giving directions along the path on the other side of the roundabout, but no actual crossing of Shieldhall Road at the roundabout.

An old blue-bordered route sign for cycling to and through the Clyde Tunnel.

Signage for the Clyde Tunnel at the underpass in Burghead Drive. I'm not sure that's the way I'd walk to any of the destinations shown to the left.

Direction sign for secure cycle parking in Cadogan Square partly obscured by whatever UB07 signifies. The size of the text also makes it hard to see, and the sign at the next junction is even less conspicuous.

A diversion sign for NCN756 at the Smartbridge since its route through Richmond Park is currently blocked.

Two sets of route signs giving directions over the dismantled Polmadie Bridge.

Advance warning of the closure of NCN756 ahead.

A route sign for the Cumbernauld route pointing the wrong way.

The Sighthill diversion is via a flight of steps!

I'm not sure the risk assessment for the Sighthill diversion route has been completed correctly.

The Sighthill diversion route is obstructed by an undropped kerb.

Diversion sign for Sighthill path closure.

this sign continuing NCR7 towards Balloch near the Riverside Museum is very craftily hidden behind copious greenery #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/7UOL2UFpqv

Since posting this, I've been informed of the correct route using Kinnell Avenue. VERY poor signage. Mosspark Dr is hectic at rush hour #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/1DBKMerLHc

[via email] Riverside to Glasgow Harbour - confusing shared space: Toucan crossing but no shared pavement signs #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/A2n8EIHMnB

An ambiguous sign at Partick Bridge. Is the cycle route to the City Centre along Argyle Street or around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery car park? And whereabouts does it join NCN7?

Nice wide new shared use path, part of Cardonald-> Southern General route. Could do with a sign to say so though! #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/okwtkW4xoV

The canal path goes under a modern road bridge on a very narrow section of path (see #92011), but it is possible to bypass it by going up the ramp to Ruchill St and crossing to rejoin the canal path beyond the bridge.

Like #91605, a diversion sign that says "see map" without saying where the map is. And it's at a flight of steps (the turning for the ramp is behind the camera).

A nice uncluttered layout leading from cycle path onto Greenlaw Road, but photo taken while waiting for others in group to mend a puncture caused by broken glass on the path.

The funders sign for the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route, a close-up of #73120.

There is an 'End of Cycle Route' sign, but the Silverburn to Pollokshaws & Newlands cycle route continues to the right. It's the route from Haggs Road that's ending.

A sign for the West City Way at Kelvingrove Art Galleries, with no further explanation. In the background, someone unlocking a hire bike.

A mix of proper and homemade signs at the point where NCN7 turns to leave the Glasgow Harbour development, some of them making more sense than others. If someone cycling to the Clyde Tunnel or Victoria Park follows the green sign, they will ... [more]

Since my last visit here (see #88189) a route confirmation sign for NCN75 has appeared, but no directional signage.

A mix of route signs at Speirs Wharf.

The route sign directs cyclists to the flight of steps under the bridge, when they need to use the ramp up to street level. However, the ramp to street level has been partially dismantled, and has been left like this for a few weeks (see al ... [more]

The River Clyde South Bank Commuter Route has its own sign.

A sign giving directions to Glasgow Green, but the bridge has been taken away, meaning that the best direction now is to the right joining the signed diversion.

The Smart Bridge connects NCN75 with NCN756 on the opposite bank of the River Clyde. But the only signage is by means of Sustrans stickers.

Right turn in two stages. Or play chicken with four lanes of traffic. #glasgowcycling https://t.co/HjgOdnKF7P [Ahead Only signs mean that right turn can only be made by the two-stage route.]

Routes through what was Sighthill Park closed due to redevelopment, and the bridge over the motorway is getting replaced at some point too. More information at www.glasgow.gov.uk/sighthill
