Helpful. Ed: The sign reads: "Callendar Woods Path Network" then in much smaller text: "Scottish Rights of Way and Access Society, Edinburgh"

A small park in Laurieston, with the path to the Helix park diverging to the left.

The path linking Laurieston to the Helix park, at the top of the hill down to the A9 crossing at #102863.

The HArTT cycle route crossing Icehouse Brae (North), with a waymarker post tucked away in the corner. Surprisingly, no 'End of Cycle Route' signs!

The HArTT cycle route turns right here, across Icehouse Brae, near the roundabout with the A9. What I didn't notice at the time was the shared-use sign on the grass verge to the right, before the roundabout.

Helix signage at Laurieston Road, but shows the HArTT cycle route turning right instead of left!

They don't make 'em like they used too!

A single bollard in an already narrow path, approached in all directions by paths. Is this really necessary? No directions on the signpost for the route to the right, which also happens to be the HArTT cycle route.

Helix signage at the junction for the M9 motorway underpass through to Grangemouth. The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a tiny badge to that effect, but nothing for the opposite direction.

'End of Cycle Route'? The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a link to Grangemouth through the underpass on the right. See #102937 for a close-up of the sign.

Cardiff’s Blackweir Bridge is a popular spot on a sunny Sunday in late October.

The heads of the valleys cycle route crossing the A465 on the Pengarnddu Bridge at Dowlais Top; a cosy sort of place. http://www.lauraashley.com/blog/at-home/design-service-cosy-cottage-style-charm/

Cycle route around the back of the Grafton Centre. Fifteen years previously: #4816

Christchurch Street

Pedestrian sign to the Grafton Centre

NO IDLING Turn off your engine and protect the environment At least the stupid bollard at #4835 is gone.

Nothing to indicate that cycles are permitted to ride through here - facing motor vehicles leaving the multi-storey car storage facility. See #5183 from sixteen years previously.

Poorly designed cycle parking at @Morrisons St Ives. Difficult to get to the back row of stands if the front row is occupied.

The path under the M9 motorway connecting the Helix park to Grangemouth. From here, the signed route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre is for pedestrians only. A signed cycle route to the centre of Grangemouth could be organised at minimal exp ... [more]

A toucan crossing across A905 Beancross Road, a signed walking route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre, and barriers across a path to Chisholm Place/Almond Street. Primrose Avenue (to the left behind the camera) is a key link between Grange ... [more]

A path connecting Chisholm Place to Portal Road, without even basic crossing facilities like dropped kerbs where it crosses Newlands Road.

A path connecting Portal Road to Chisholm Place, although there are no dropped kerbs (nor any other crossing facilities) where it crosses Newlands Road. The whole length of Portal Road (which runs parallel to the A905 Beancross Road) is rid ... [more]

A single-sided sign for the routes available across the Grange Burn, but a low kerb rather than a proper dropped kerb at the end of the path. I wouldn't want to bump the bike over this when it is loaded with shopping!

A footbridge across the Grange Burn Flood Relief Channel, linking the Grange Burn path to Rannoch Park. The A905 and M9 motorway lie beyond.

The path alongside the Grange Burn, a bridge across the Grange Burn, and a sign for a completely cycleable walking route to Grangemouth Stadium.

Signs on the path network near the Grange Burn. The sign for Grangemouth Stadium is for pedestrians only, unlike the next one, shown in #102918.

Looking across NCN76 at the path junction near Torwood Avenue.

The paths clearly existed before NCN76 came along, and the alignments and widths were not altered.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

A painted cycle lane has been provided through the traffic calming pinch-point, but only in one direction.

NCN76 shared footway looking towards Zetland Park.

The transition between shared footway and road is a mess, with right-angled turns, and a bin and a cabinet blocking the way.

Murals on the former line of the railway near Irlam Station.

Cycle barrier. Rounded shape enables a normal bike to be wheeled through, but it would be difficult with a tandem or trailer.

Cycle Barrier. not quite as inconvenient as it looks.

The sheer nerve of some van drivers! @camcycle @CambridgeCops https://t.co/HwCkYffATY

Grafton centre marked with an unfeasibly narrow cycle lane. Fifteen years later: #102932.

Directional signage Same 15 years later #102930

Pram arms on a bollard. Same area 15 years later: #102929.

Hills Road

After the car park entrance was widened there is little room for cyclists to pass egressing cars. See #102928 sixteen years later.

Urgent need for more racks in Romsey.

St Ives - closed to motor vehicles for most of the day

Two whole bike stands at Lelant Saltings station. To be fair, it is a park and ride aimed at motorists who might otherwise drive into St Ives..
