The path around the back of the pitches at Whitecrook Park is not surfaced, but leads to an entrance on North Elgin Street.

Cycle parking at the entrance to Whitecrook Park, but a metal maze to get through to get to it, unless you go around the end of the fence.

Surface dressing has been applied to the canal towpath between Yoker and Clydebank.

The riverside path outside the Clydebank Leisure Centre.

The riverside path is separated from the car park by rising bollards, although they hadn't been deployed at the time of my visit.

Cycle parking outside the Clydebank Leisure Centre.

The Titan Crane in Clydebank, and access to the new riverside path to the right.

Cycle parking at the western end of the riverside path in Dalmuir. The path does not connect into the hospital grounds ahead.

An underpass with steps linking the two parts of Boquhanran Road beneath the railway. Unlikely to ever be made accessible, I guess. Duntocher Road is the nearest alternative crossing.

NCN7 meets Dock Street on the edge of Clydebank. This will become a busy crossing when the new bridge to Renfrew is built. There is scope to put the cycle path on a bridge to cross the road, reusing the abutment of the old railway bridge, b ... [more]

The new road between Clydebank College and Cable Depot road. This section is as yet unopened, but I saw a few people on bikes using it. At this end, it connects with NCN7. There are bus stops, but no cycle facilities along the road.

The new riverside path from the Titan crane leaves the riverside and follows a zig-zag course a little back from the river bank. It then ceases, without (as yet) connecting to the path seen in #167649.

A new riverside path, next to the Titan crane in Clydebank. At present, it is a dead end path.

A section of new road linking Cable Depot Road to the Clydebank College area. This section is as yet unopened. Here the road is raised to footway level, and corduroy tactiles are used to mark the limit of the carriageway.

A nice section of riverside path, but it doesn't connect to anything else. A new section of path is being installed beyond the navigation light (see #167654), but with the industrial estate in the way, does not look like it will link up.

A path connectinging an industrial estate to the hospital entrance road along the riverside. I guess the things at the side of the path are meant to be cycle parking stands, although placed right up against a kerb, and in a location unlikel ... [more]

A new road parallel to Dumbarton Road, connecting Cable Depot Road to the area around Clydebank College. I don't know what bus service they expect will use this road once open completely, since this road effectively bypasses the town centre ... [more]

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath in Clydebank.

Since my last visit, a short section of wider path has been laid, but ends here.

The dropped kerb to access Beardmore Community Park is not best placed.

The Forth & Clyde Canal towpath is now in a reasonable shape, but the path to Beardmore Street only gets worse as it goes on!

Access to the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath over the lifting bridge at Farm Road.

Signage for the Forth & Clyde Canal at Farm Road.

Dumbarton Road has service roads in front of the houses most of the way between Western Isles Road and Mountblow Road. It wouldn't take the earth to create a cycle link between Old Dalnottar Road (see #107093) and here to form a quietway on ... [more]

The walking route from Old Dalnottar Road to Dumbarton Road (on the same alignment) involves use of this pedestrian crossing on Western Isles Road, some way from the roundabout, and on a road layout that does not impede fast driving.

A closeup of the kerb seen in #107321.

Kilbowie Road northbound approaching the Kilbowie Roundabout, including an access to the cycleway around the roundabout. A flush kerb (see #107322) was installed at each of the accesses to the cycleway at the insistence of the local cycling ... [more]

A toucan crossing over the A82 at the Kilbowie Roundabout. Are these the lowest call boxes ever, particularly on the far side?

The end of the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway for those heading east. Join the A82 carriageway here.

The Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway alongside the A82. Cross here to go south or to use the shared footway on the other side of the dual carriageway, or rejoin the eastbound carriageway.

The start of the Kilbowie Roundabout cycleway when coming from Kilbowie Road southbound. One presumes that the 'No Stopping Clearway' and 'Give Way to Pedestrians' signs aren't aimed at the same roaduser, even though they are mounted one ... [more]

Bowling Basin at the end of the Forth & Clyde Canal. A few bikes tied up near boats, and some empty stands around the place.

A poor surface on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath between Yoker and Whitecrook. UPDATE: This has been addressed with surface dressing, see #173559.

A poor surface on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath at Whitecrook. UPDATE: This has since been addressed with surface dressing, see #173560.

Footbridge with stepped ramps across railway line.

Cycle parking at Dumbarton Castle.

Dumbarton Castle, and the small park next to the River Clyde.

A barrier at Clyde St, set back from the path entrance.

The signed cycle route to the council offices uses the path across the Meadow. A pity the dropped kerb doesn't align with the path.

A route sign for the Council Offices cycle route, and some other signs that faded out.

The shared-use path across the Meadow in Dumbarton is part of a signed cycle route to the council offices.
