A completely traffic free and family friendly connection between Mosshead and Milngavie. Now widen and pave to make it cyclable. So we could use it to cycle safely to the Allander Leisure centre with the kids.

Great, that this vital connection towards Baljaffray was looked at and paved for pedestrians. Now add a ramp for cyclists, but also wheelchairs, parents with prams, elderly on mobility scooters.

The road is easily wide enough to create a segregated cycle lane here, especially towards Canniesburn roundabout, where car congestion stops cyclists.

Cycle lanes would be great. Kids are being encouraged to walk/cycle or scooter to schools once they reopen, but the roads are not bike safe for kids.

Cycle lanes on major road

Better lighting to allow commuting in winter

Make sure developers allow new houses to be permeable so riders can avoid the wide and fast South Crosshill Road

Terrible potholed roundabout with no provision for cyclists especially with motorists coming from the switchback as cyclist will be unsighted until the last moment & there are quick lane changes which could cause cyclists problems.

Very busy with young families and cyclists. Less than 2m

Northbound A81: intimidating lane change required for cyclists to stay on A81. The spped limit here is 40mph and it can be scary for cyclists to manouver into the right hand lane to carry on north on the A81, with cars coming up dangerousl ... [more]

South of the Hillfoot station narrower piece or road and parking that was 'controversial' for the Bears Way (e.g. from Asda south) there is easily enough road width for a segregated cyclelane to extent to the Glasgow City boundary and onwar ... [more]

The road surface to cycleways both sides of road are extremely poor. Resurface.

Clearer signage indicating cyclists priority at road crossing on entry from Milngavie Rd into Allander sports centre estate. Most cars do not realise or not not care that they have to give way

A permanent link extension of the existing Bears Way passed Hillfoot shops and train station and passed Boclair House and Asda supermarket where traffic is busy and dangerous so that it joins with the route into Glasgow city centre. This br ... [more]

Cycleway ends and forces all into path of traffic with only very old paint on the road that pre-date placement of lights - no protection esp. given that this "links" bearsway to shops.

Cycle lane shut - making all users go onto main road just at the point when trucks and vans turn into builders yard. Need to improve the add space on the road or fix the lane ASAP.

Cycling along the switchback at busy times is horrible. Making space for bikes would link up Bearsden to GWR. Could even join up to Bearsway!

The Wester Way ends at Westerhill Road and awaits the building of the next phase of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road, and a new path alongside the railway to Lenzie. Corduroy tactiles have been provided (not cycleway tactiles) even though th ... [more]

A very poor access ramp between the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath and Glendinning Road.

New cycle path into housing development from toucan crossing on Auchinairn Road. But that barrier could do with removing.

The start of the new link from Macfarlane Road into Killermont Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. There way previously a bus layby here, even though this is not a bus terminus or somewhere a bus would be waiting for more than the ... [more]

The end of the new link from Killermont Road into Macfarlane Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. There way previously a bus layby here, even though this is not a bus terminus or somewhere a bus would be waiting for more than the t ... [more]

A short section of shared-use footway forms the new connection from Macfarlane Road to Killermont Road, as part of the interim Bears Way route. See also #85480.

The turn from Cluny Park into Cluny Drive, on the Bears Way interim route, with a "Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway" sign.

The end of the Bears Way interim route through Cluny Park, at a new toucan crossing across the A81 Maryhill Road dual carriageway. A shared-use footway connects to the entrance to Garscube Estate just off to the left, and continues as far a ... [more]

Wet slippery paving slabs at the top of the ramp down to the canal path in Kirkintilloch. The chap seen in the distance slipped and fell to the ground, but was able to pick himself up and carry on.

The end of phase 1 of the Bears Way cycle route, and priority over turning traffic at junctions is immediately lost with this Give Way. This is also the point where northbound cyclists are meant to cross the road to use the cycle track. ... [more]

A basic bus stop without a shelter or much of an island between the boarding point and the cycle track.

No cycle parking outside shops next to Bears Way cycleway. Maybe there's some round the back in the car park, but some here would be more obvious for anyone who cared to stop.

Chicane for cyclists approaching bus stop on Bears Way cycleway. In foreground, access to/from side-road opposite.

Priority at golfing range side-road crossing on Bears Way cycleway.

A chicane approaching a bus stop on the Bears Way cycle track.

A gully right in the middle of the Bears Way cycle track at a bend near the Allander Sports Centre access road junction.

The Bears Way cycle track crosses the Allander Sports Centre access road with a (slightly) raised priority crossing.

The cycle track crosses the access road to the Allander Sports Centre by moving away from the Milngavie Road alignment to cross further back from the road junction (see #72183).

A toucan crossing across Milngavie Road and the Bears Way cycle track. No particularly obvious reason why it is a toucan rather than a pedestrian crossing, since the footway on the left is narrow and not suitable for cycling on, and the pat ... [more]

A chicane in the cycle track approaching a bus stop. The shelter for this stop is on the footway rather than the bus stop island. This intending passenger seems happy to wait leaning against a bollard.

Temporary arrangements at what will become the entrance to a new housing estate.

The shared-use path from the Allander Leisure Centre to the A81, with a random cobbled part. No dropped kerb at the end. If a bridge under the railway line was provided, this path would connect the Craigdhu Wedge path to the Allander Wal ... [more]

The shared-use path from the Allander Leisure Centre meets the Bears Way cycle track at the toucan crossing across the A81, and across from the Craigdhu Wedge path.

The path down the side of the fitness club is the inauspicious start of the Craigdhu Wedge path. Access is from the shared-use footway in the foreground and segregated track to the right, or from the toucan crossing just to the left of the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track crosses from one side of the A81 to the other on the boundary between Bearsden and Milngavie (both East Dunbartonshire Council). The crossing also provides access between the Craigdhu Wedge path and the path to the ... [more]

The Bears Way cycle track has priority over vehicles exiting the fitness club. Not so clear about vehicles entering.

Once you've managed to get onto the track, the Bears Way offers protection from the motor traffic on the A81. But the cycle track switches sides shortly, at the 'golden arches' visible in the distance.

The end of the Bears Way segregated cycleway and back onto the road at the Burnbrae Roundabout. Not so clear how to make this transition southbound.

Bridge over the Bothlin Burn on the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

A poor surface on path built to replace Strathkelvin Railway Path built over by Kirkintilloch Initiative road scheme, only suited for leisure use rather than commuting.

A poor surface on path built to replace Strathkelvin Railway Path built over by Kirkintilloch Initiative road scheme.

Pathetically narrow shared-use footway past bus stop, with lamppost and railings further obstructing it. The group on the opposite footway would have to walk single file to get past this! But this is meant to be a purpose built cycleway, bu ... [more]

Ramped shared-use footway replacing steps in #26221.

The steps, built for the Strathkelvin Railway Path diversion due to the Kirkintilloch Initiative Road scheme, have been replaced with a ramp.

Ramp down from Industry Street, allowing access to the open space around the Luggie Water and the Strathkelvin Railway Path.

Junction in path and underpass beneath New Lairdsland Road. Either route will get the user to Industry Street from where the Strathkelvin Railway Path continues, but the route on the left is now more user friendly.

Footbridge over the Luggie Water, and the path up to the canal and town centre. The Strathkelvin Railway Path turns right at the end of the bridge.

Path surface does not join up on the Strathkelvin Railway Path, with an unsurfaced gap left between the tarmac and the mock railway track section under the canal bridge.

Money spent on some sort of artwork that would be better spent on the Strathkelvin Railway Path surface. The mock railway surface which continues under the canal bridge is getting a bit bumpy and there is full-width ponding on the unsurface ... [more]

Kerb across route of Strathkelvin Railway Path where it leaves the care home car park.

Some new steps have appeared in the original ramp in the canal towpath up to Cowgate, so a new ramp has been constructed to bypass the steps. But there's nothing to warn of the steps on the path ahead and thus the need to divert onto the ra ... [more]

More #space4cycling emerging on the A81 in Milngavie, one of Scotland's most car-dependent towns. Yay! http://t.co/myYuLWJmXz

Biked to work today under the @NetworkRailEGIP Lenzie Railway Viaduct. Impressive stone structure despite its age. http://t.co/M7qIKWWVpG

Two out of three paths resurfaced at the Craigdhu Wedge

A new step-free bridge over the River Kelvin, replacing #36381, and connecting Balmore with Cadder.

The Strathkelvin Railway Path is now a bit overgrown on much of the section between Lennoxtown and Strathblane, making it hard to pass people coming the other way.

Junction on canal path at Bishopbriggs Sports Centre

Path linking Strathkelvin Railway Path to South Brae

Junction of Strathkelvin Railway Path and path to Clachan of Campsie, also showing ramp up to Newbridge road crossing in background

A typical bridge on Strathkelvin Railway Path

Strathkelvin Railway Path - the section west of Lennoxtown is tarmac

There's this new road being built between Kirkintilloch and the M80 motorway so the cycle path has been diverted......onto a flight of steps! UPDATE 2015: The steps have since been replaced by a ramp (see #68236).
