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!

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

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]

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.

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

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]

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.

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.
