There are some tightly spaced cycle parking stands next to the entrance door, in addition to those in #173563, and some bikes were visible inside the doorway. Despite there being parking spaces on the opposite side of the road, this driv ... [more]

Dock Street Clydebank, NCN 7 where it crosses a street, I wonder if it could be made more clear the path crosses here 🤔 Sight lines a major issue here with parked cars, for a path used by all age groups walk/wheeling with heavy vehicl ... [more]

The West Street access point to the Forth & Clyde Canal could use a dropped kerb.

Paths on both sides of the canal at Linnvale have bumpy surfaces.

The path on the north side of the Forth & Clyde Canal at Linnvale has a loose gravel surface, while the direct route to Strauss Avenue is just a grass path.

West Thomson Street has been partially resurfaced (see #107341), but the cycle lane has not been reinstated, even though the signs remain, albeit one facing in the wrong direction.

The Boquhanran Road underpass beneath the Forth & Clyde Canal. I'm sure the road network would still function if this was shut to motor traffic and a more suitable surface laid for safer cycling.

A dropped kerb is still required at both ends of the path connecting the Clydebank Business Park and Singer Road.

A poorly designed corner on junction at Cable Depot Road. The verge and tactile paving is being run over by vehicular traffic.

Very obstructive bar accross cycle path - would be better to have a single post in the centre of the path

This underpass could be a safer route from the south side of the train track to the North side, meaning cycling to the High School would be safer that than using Duntocher Road but there are steps

Wider path for cycling

Safe crossing point established to prevent cycleway being blocked bus buses and lorries parking up.

Poor surface area at junction. Kerb drop down is often blocked by cars/vans using the burger van

Improve cycling links in West Dunbartonshire

Road is wide enough to have a segregated cycle path to allow better access to the school for pupils

Needs a cycle path to encourage High students to cycle and stay off public and driven transport

Dreadful surface on canal path

Wide road that could easily have a cycle path connecting to the two high schools

Cycle parking at the staff entrance to the Golden Jubilee National Hospital. There is better cycle parking over by the car park at #107103.

Boquhanran Road shut for roadworks at the canal bridge, but no-one seems to have seen the memo about signing the cycle access still being open.

An awkward barrier at the foot of the ramp up to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, and no dropped kerb. The only way to the Clydebank Business Park that could possibly be just a quarter of a mile is to head in the opposite direction from ... [more]

Signs visible through the trees for various destinations not mentioned at the top of the ramp. Anyone getting this far probably already knows where they are going. Plus an awkward barrier to get around at the bottom of the steep and narrow ... [more]

The access ramp from the Forth & Clyde Canal to the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, but nothing on the signpost to say so.

The cycle counter in Clydebank hasn't been working the last few times I've passed.

The prohibited turn sign in Abbotsford Road doesn't exempt cycling, even though the sign in Chalmers Street says 'No Motor Vehicles'.

Through motor traffic has been removed from Hume Street by a road closure by bollards next to the low bridge. However the Chalmers Street side of Hume Street has been turned into a taxi storage area with conflicting signage and road mark ... [more]

Through motor traffic has been removed from Hume Street by a road closure by bollards next to the low bridge. However the Chalmers Street side of Hume Street has been turned into a taxi storage area with conflicting signage and road mark ... [more]

The signs used on Hume Street are 'No Motor Vehicles' signs yet the plates below the signs and the prohibited turn signs say 'No vehicles except for taxis'. Is cycling allowed, and if not why not?

A sign for the Forth & Clyde Canal pointing the wrong way. The canal can be reached via Farm Road heading into the distance on the right.

'Keep Clear' but no clear cycle access to the crossings at the Dumbarton Road/Mountblow Road junction. Farm Road off to the right leads to the Forth & Clyde Canal, although Dumbarton Road ahead is the most direct route to the town centre.

No path from the small park to the pedestrian crossing on Western Isles Road.

Only pedestrian access from Old Dalnottar Road to Dumbarton Road, and even that is via a pedestrian crossing off to the left at #107094.

The barrier at The Saltings car park.

Another barrier blocking the end of a bridge in The Saltings nature reserve. So I'll give this path a miss too.

A barrier on a footbridge at The Saltings nature reserve. But easily avoided by taking a different route.

A barrier across the path between Donald's Quay and The Saltings. It's always worth checking whether the gate is locked or not. At this point, the path is running along the formation of a former railway line.

The path to the canal could not only be wider, and have a dropped kerb at the end, but could also meet the road nearer the corner to avoid being blocked by parked vehicles. The priority sign to the right needs corrected too.

No widening of this narrow footway took place to convert it into the Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway. Pathetic!

Take care at the high speed junction at Mountblow Road.

The path along the edge of the park disappears under a bush, and because the grass is at the foot of a slope, the grass can get a bit too boggy to cycle on.

The start of the West Thomson Street cycle lane, opposite Clydebank High School.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street.

The cycle lane up West Thomson Street ends in a car park at the Clydebank Health Centre.

Briar Drive ends in a turning circle next to the Kilbowie Roundabout, and doesn't even have a dropped kerb for cycle access to the cycleway.

A 'No Cycling' sign on what is now the much vaunted Clydebank North Circular Link cycleway alongside the A82 dual carriageway.

The sign says 'No Motor Vehicles' but no provision for cycling through this road closure on Braidfield Road to connect with the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway.

A barrier at the entrance to The Saltings local nature reserve from the car park. There is another barrier further along the path, between The Saltings and Donald's Quay.

A poor quality path, with a hump, at a crossing with a track at Dalnottar.

A rather uninviting entrance to the Thomas Wood Path at Duntocher.

A high kerb across the end of the path to NCN754 Forth & Clyde Canal.

Poorly maintained signage in Whitecrook.

Signs (pedestrian or cycle?) for Whitecrook Park and the Forth & Clyde Canal. The sign for Whitecrook Park should be pointing along North Elgin Street (behind the camera). The next turn going towards the canal didn't have a sign.

You need a lot of patience to cross the road in Milton. Crossing the A82 from Milton Brae to get to the NCN7 cycle path.

The A-frame on the path to Overtoun House was just wide enough for my handlebars.

Room for some cycle parking.

There used to be direction signs at this path junction. Now just this! A brown sign cycle route to Dumbarton Castle starts here, going left, but there is no longer a sign here to let people know about it. Various signed walking routes al ... [more]

Genius https://t.co/rKMaJkTbOR

Extremely poorly sited cycle parking at Clydebank ASDA. A combination of shelter, bollard and a car being parked in the space in the foreground made my bike difficult to retrieve when I returned from the supermarket.

Dropped kerbs would be useful either end of this path between Clydebank Business Park and Singer Road.

Apparently the council thinks this makes a cycle route!

The cycle routes from the council offices to Dumbarton's two railway stations appear to cross the A82 on this split pedestrian crossing, and use the narrow footway on the far side. No attempt has been made to actually provide a proper cycle ... [more]

Shared-use footway starts without a dropped kerb. Never mind, it's fairly pointless and it can be joined at a junction further on for the more useful part (see #79992).

Some strange markings on the footway either end of a bus stop in Townend Road.

Rather than taking the obvious route to the Forth & Clyde Canal adjacent to Duntreath Avenue, the signage indicates a route via Strauss Avenue, although I wasn't sure where it went after that, possibly onto Kirkwood Avenue and the lifting b ... [more]

Gates have been built across the track, but someone has tied the small gate open to allow non-motorised users through.

The A-frame at the end of the Thomas Wood Path is too narrow for the handlebars on my new bike.

A shiny new kissing gate on the Clyde Coastal Path. The kissing gate is very narrow and has a latch making it extremely difficult to negotiate with a bike.

Gates across the track. This section of the Clyde Coastal Path isn't suitable for cycling. Indeed walking on this muddy and sometimes flooded track isn't ideal, and people have cut across part of the field to avoid the track.

Lots of signs at this junction on the Clyde Coastal Path. I can't help wondering if the blank section on the directions signs was meant for a Clyde Coastal Path logo, to save having duplicate signs.

Perhaps the speed limit here needs to be reviewed, as well as the car parking arrangements beyond the junction.

Stepped access to Kilpatrick station near the Erskine Bridge, but no mention of a step-free route on the sign.

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. The old narrow path looks pretty rubbish next to the beautifully manicured road surface. www.west-dunbarton.gov.uk/roads-parking-travel/road-safety/road-safet ... [more]

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82, on the narrow section of path near the Erskine Bridge. www.west-dunbarton.gov.uk/roads-parking-travel/road-safety/road-safety-walking-cycling/

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82, but this next section of path is very narrow and there's no evidence of any work to widen it. www.west-dunbarton.gov.uk/roads-parking-travel/road-safety/road- ... [more]

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82, but no sign of any widening at this unnecessarily constrained bus stop site. www.west-dunbarton.gov.uk/roads-parking-travel/road-safety/road-safety-walking-cy ... [more]

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. This residential driveway crossing has a dropped kerb across only part of the width of the shared footway/cycleway. www.west-dunbarton.gov.uk/roads-parking-tr ... [more]

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. Access to the cycleway from Milton Mains Road and Glenhead Road is by means of a stepped ramp. The footbridge ramp ends onto Glenhead Road so this affects tho ... [more]

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. But parked cars may block the path at this car dealership. www.west-dunbarton.gov.uk/roads-parking-travel/road-safety/road-safety-walking-cycling/

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. The footway beyond the bus stop is closed for surface repairs. This bus stop and shelter was only recently put in but no account appears to have been made of ... [more]

Work underway on creating the Clydebank North Circular Link alongside the A82. Whether this sign gets remounted out of the path of the new cycleway remains to be seen. A mix of white and green signs on this former trunk road. www.west ... [more]

Link path from Linnvale to NCN754 Forth & Clyde Canal towpath, but no dropped kerb.

The off-side path along the Forth & Clyde Canal at Linnvale has been surfaced with some rough stone. Hardly suitable for cycling on.

Another ASL lost to patching work

NCN 7 marker post 7 is apparently left and right of this sign. It refers to the national cycle route number 7. Found in Balloch Castle Country Park. These posts are easy to miss, especially at junctions. Location approximate.
