On the left, the Garscadden Way, leading to the Drumchapel Way, and on the right, the path through to Annan Drive. Both could do with some proper path building works.

The path from Drumchapel to Annan Drive, Bearsden, is a bit on the narrow side.

The junction of Fountainwell Road and St Rollox Drive, seen from the old footpath along the edge of Sighthill Cemetery. The start of the cycleway can be seen, and this is the only access.

Was I imaging in #107165 that this path was being upgraded?

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

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

Poor condition asphalt path and damaged marker post on the Drumchapel Way.

The Drumchapel Way continues.

The optimist in me wants to believe that this section of the Drumchapel Way path is currently being upgraded.

The path connecting the Forth & Clyde Canal to Netherton Road next to the David Lloyd centre is in a very poor condition, not just a poor and narrow surface but quite overgrown too.

A very narrow and bumpy path that could be improved to connect Kirklee with Kelvindale Road and the Kelvin Walkway across the river.

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 motorway surface would never have been left like this, so why the core path and cycling route?

Fences ✅ Crash barriers ✅ Surface ❌ Unless you like cycling on the A89 dual carriageway, this is one of the few options for getting around Baillieston Interchange and on to Bargeddie.

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

The unmade path from Cardowan meets the made paths around Cardowan Moss.

The path from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss can be a bit wet here in times of less dry weather.

A path connecting to the riverside path in Govan.

The walkway alongside the River Clyde in Govan ends in a dead-end. This is the last junction to access the local road network.

A riverside walkway in Govan, with the Riverside Museum across the other side. In summer a free ferry operates across the river.

A riverside walkway in Govan.

The path to Craighall Street being used for getting about by bike.

Although there are items of cycling paraphernalia back at Carnoustie Street and at Houston Street, this crossing is not a toucan crossing on the path in between the two locations. The space on the central reservation is somewhat restrict ... [more]

Nothing to say whether cycling is allowed here or not, although this is where a chain of toucan crossings lead.

Give way to construction traffic in Richmond Park.

Filtered permeability not so good as #98670 when it comes to bus stop access, only leading to the nearest street, and lacking a dropped kerb on one side of the street!

Good filtered permeability in parts of the new Richmond Gate housing development, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a raised crossing (as at nearby #95369) for this path between the park and the houses?

A new path at the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

New paths at the Clay Pit local nature reserve. The surface is gravel so not so good for cycling, but was frozen solid with frost when I visited.

A new path into the Clay Pit local nature reserve.

Broken asphalt on the route the Kelvingrove Art Gallery boss preferred cyclists to take rather than the more obvious route through the car park.

Desire line from NCN7 path up to main road.

Instead of the direct PRW, council would prefer cyclists use the quieter route following NCN7 #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/jNLcWpRARp

[via email] Flood on path from SECC to Riverside Museum. Created a few months ago by a worker with a digger #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/8UtPQmwTHM

Ncn7 worst designed cycle path entrance on my route. At least nettles have died down a bit now. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/QDIhlbFwMy

NCN7. Always floods here. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/5pnSklD7Hi

NCN7. A mud pit because it's often (presumably illegally?) driven on. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 https://t.co/DXj0zXUQdL

Glasgow City Council has proposed stopping up this path leading to vacant land behind the houses, due to it being deemed "unneccessary". ROADS (SCOTLAND) ACT 1984 THE GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL RAASAY STREET (STOPPING UP) ORDER 2017 ... [more]

Steeply graded woodland path.

A big puddle on Bredisholm Road track.

The people of Pollok have made their own desire lines clear, and they don't match the official paths.

It's hard to believe that this path is only a few weeks old. Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is ... [more]

Unlike the other rebuilt paths linking to and from the Kelvin Walkway, this riverside path was not asphalted, but instead has been given a loose surface. Unsurprisingly, it is already wrecked after the first heavy rain since it was built. W ... [more]

A path from Hamilton Road through to Greentree Drive.

One of two people on bikes I saw using this section of the Garscadden Way.

The Garscadden Way almost indiscernible approaching the Drumchapel Road crossing. Only the old access barrier gives a clue to it once being a Strathclyde Regional Council cycle route.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

The Garscadden Way heading towards its southeastern end.

A particularly poor piece of path heading to Annan Drive, including a steep drop.

The Drumchapel Way and Garscadden Way meet and head onwards between the trees. The Drumchapel Way comes along the path from Kinfauns Drive and turns, while the path continues on to Annan Drive. The Garscadden Way comes across the grass from ... [more]

A poor quality path from Kinfauns Drive across to Annan Drive, with a waymarker post for the Drumchapel Way.

Access to the new access path to the Kelvin Walkway in #89472 still needs work done at Bantaskin St. Maybe it isn't finished.

An old canal bridge on Castle Street, but there are steps on the other side so not useful for cycling.

The position of the dropped kerb seems to be without any thought as to where people might want to cross.

The path beneath the road bridges at Baillieston could do with a litter-pick along its whole length.

The path between the A89 and Bargeddie Parish Church.

The narrow path between the A89 and Bargeddie Parish Church gets wider for a bit, but much of the benefit is negated by the vegetation. However, it probably copes fine with the present level of use.

The unsurfaced canal path from Bishopbriggs finally arrives at Lambhill Bridge. Much quicker (and cleaner) to use NCN754 across the other side of the canal, but what if you live in the area around Aultbea Street?

A clear desire line for a ramp to the Clyde Walkway where there is only steps on this side of Dalmarnock Road.

The path network in the former athletes' village includes a few unusual features such as this bridge across the water feature, and this plaque explaining a bit about the village.

The path network in the former athletes' village connects everything together much better than many other modern housing developments.

Baltic St provides a low-traffic route right across Dalmarnock, but only some of the transitions between path and road are any good, such as here at Connal St.

Glass on access between Baltic Street and London Road cycle track.

I'm not sure whether you are allowed to cycle on this or not, but it leads to some toucan crossings and the path to Sighthill, and now has a blue line along one side. Also, an interesting use for a crash barrier!

The path between Ashgill Road and Liddesdale Terrace needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Liddesdale Terrace and Ashgill Road needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Liddesdale Road and Strathmore Road needs dropped kerbs at each end.

The path between Strathmore Road and Liddesdale Road needs dropped kerbs at each end, and possibly the pedestrian desire line towards Balmore Road should be acknowledged.

According to Google Maps, this ramp up to Tresta Road is a dedicated bicycle trail!

Access between the path beyond Lochburn Road and the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath. Behind the camera, rough paths continue through the woods towards Vaila St.

Fortified bridge across the railway line beyond the end of Lochburn Road.

The Halloween Pend, an old tunnel under the Forth & Clyde Canal. Not much use for cycling, unless you don't mind a bit of scrambling and ankle-deep mud. More information at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcKoypTGPG8

Path from houses at Aultbea Street, and muddy path down from the main road at Castlebay Street.

See video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNIW5viCYK0 This path between Southdeen Avenue and Glenkirk Drive is included in the 300km of claimed cycle routes in the Glasgow City Council Cycle Network (see map at https://glasgowgis.maps ... [more]

Clearly not a purpose-built cycleway. The path heads up a steep slope onto the former railway embankment.

Poor quality path on the Allander Way. There's a step at the water pumping device.

The Allander Way has an underpass beneath the A879 Balmore Road (although not Boclair Road), but the path does not connect up with it, and if you want to join Balmore Road, access is by climbing over the crash barrier!

A lot of this section of the Kelvin Walkway is quite muddy. This wasn't the worst piece.

The Kelvin Walkway path doesn't get any better than this. The sections either side of this are quite muddy.

The improved section of path doesn't even stretch as far as the bridge. The path beyond here is even worse!

While this section of path has been built, it shortly returns to just a worn path through the trees

The junction of the path from Acre Road and the Kelvin Walkway.

Path in poor condition at Rutherglen end.

Path between Toryglen and Rutherglen

Pedestrian way out to Caledonia Road at bus stop.

Pedestrian way out to crossing on Laurieston Road at Cumberland Street.

A path between Bedford Street and Norfolk Street. This ends up at the crossing to Nicholson Street.

A path between Bedford Street and Cumberland Street.

Another calculated insult to pedestrians from one of the laziest, nastiest councils in Britain http://t.co/jfCIaQUAZw

A very poor section of track linking the closed section of Bantaskin Street with the Kelvin Walkway. The sign says "Kelvin Walkway - Authorised Vehicles Only - 4 m.p.h."

On the left, offside access to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Kelvin Dock. (Access to the towpath can only be gained from here by crossing over one of the lock gates.) On the right, access to the Kelvin Walkway. Poor surface all round.

On the far side of the road crossing it is legal to cycle on this path. On this side it is not. And there are obstructions at the road crossing in the way of anyone using the path anyway.

Poor lumpy asphalt surface on footpath between Balcarres Avenue and Kelvindale Road, which is also quite narrow in places.

Bollards at end of Kelvindale Buildings access road and start of path to Forth & Clyde Canal

Diversion route while Kelvin Walkway shut at Maryhill

Typical woodland path in Dawsholm Park. There are some routes through the woods possible without encountering steps.

A woodland path in Dawsholm Park.

Track between Robroyston and Hogganfield. Could be a useful link to/from ASDA.
