Negotiating the path down from Cumbernauld Road to join the Strathkelvin Railway Path. Still as narrow and awkward as ever.

The Wester Way alongside Phase 4 of the Bishopbriggs Relief Road. The lampposts have been planted in the path rather than alongside it (as has been done on the adjacent road), but other than this, it is built to a reasonable standard, an ... [more]

A fairly smooth unbounded track through the forestry at Dunsyston, avoiding a busier road through Gartness on the way to Chapelhall. But could equally go on towards Salsburgh.

A path with a decent surface linking Greengairs to Wattston and Stanrigg Memorial Park.

The cycleway between Eurocentral and Shawhead is open at last!

A split toucan crossing across Townhead Avenue at Eurocentral. I don't know which direction the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign applies to. The kid on the bike took no notice of it.

The cyclepath doesn't run directly to the toucan crossing, necessitating sharp turns, when the desireline is across open land.

The M8 cycle path approaching Eurocentral.

The cyclepath, A8 dual carriageway and M8 motorway approaching Eurocentral. I'm sure it would have been possible to design a more economical A8 road layout at this point. The road to the right is a field/land access with next to no traff ... [more]

The cyclepath and westbound A8 cross the M8 motorway.

The path from Eurocentral to Shawhead alongside the A8 dual carriageway. Closed ahead, see #99666.

The path from Eurocentral to Shawhead alongside the A8 dual carriageway. Closed ahead.

The end of the path from Clay Road at the Clay Crescent bus turning circle. All this could be upgraded to improve active travel permeability within Shirrel.

The path to Strathclyde Business Park. See the comments at #99651 concerning the bridge ahead.

The path alongside this section of the A725. It ends at Strathclyde Business Park. Why not continue on to Strathclyde Country Park?

The approach at Inchwood Road to the M80 footbridge over to Kirk Place is somewhat messy.

Another path junction that would benefit from some upgrading work.

As also seen in #99784, this path needs a proper surface, and it could be rebuilt slightly to the side to improve sightlines at the path junction.

Some potentially useful paths here, but the route crossing this one needs a proper surface, and the opportunity could be taken to move it away from the vegetation to improve sightlines.

How can anyone trust signage like this? See further comments at #70290.

Little difference from my last visit at #70285.

Route 4 from Craiglinn joins the path to the B8048. I don't know which kerb I prefer to bump!

Unfortunately the paths and crossing do not align, on this newly built estate. Very poor planning.

A nice wide path through Smithstone, with a raised crossing across Old Tower Road, but is it Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4?

According to my map from the council, Cumbernauld Cycle Network route 4 turns the corner here, which may account for the difference in path widths. But no signs.

It's not just youngsters that take shortcuts when the local path network as built is inadequate.

This path appears to have been forgotten about.

Accessible footbridge over Greenfaulds Road.

The unmade path from Cardowan to Cardowan Moss. This could be improved.

The path through the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve passes under Stirling Road.

A paint mark possibly for some sort of forthcoming work on the path through the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A barrier and kissing gate across the path in the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve.

A path junction in the Greenfaulds area of Cumbernauld.

The path past Woodlands Primary School in Greenfaulds.

Paths in Greenfaulds.

No option for taking a shortcut down the embankment. Pedestrians have to walk this unnecessary distance too!

If the route to Bellshill and Coatbridge is so important, why does the shared-use footway alongside the A725 basically peter out at the top of Bogs Brae?

So tell me again why there isn't a ramp from the far side of this bridge directly towards Strathclyde Country Park to the right?

The most indirect route possible has been chosen for the cycle route between Bothwell and Strathclyde Country Park through the Raith Interchange.

@andy_fab Here is the path at Shawhead which heads towards Eurocentral, affected by landslip This is the only unopened section but it has been like this since about August last year. They fence it off and folk pull off the fences but not us ... [more]

A poor connection between the path around Strathclyde Loch and the exit from Strathclyde Park towards Bothwell.

The Ravenscraig cycleway passes a path across to Plantation Road.

No dropped kerb for access from the road at the start of the path from Eurocentral to Holytown.

The western branch of the path from Holytown to Eurocentral.

The path from Holytown to Eurocentral would be even better if the lampposts had been placed outside the width of the path. As it is they create an unnecessary narrowing at each post.

The path from Holytown to Eurocentral.

Not the prettiest, but a viable way through from Russell St to Mossend Primary School.

The towpath of the Forth & Clyde Canal is now paved all the way to Glasgow, with the exception of a couple of short sections around bridges.

A narrow path links the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath to the end of the road to Banton at Kelvinhead, but has a couple of opening gates across it.

A horse-jumping style barrier and kissing gate at the end of the path alongside Banton Loch, but the barrier was unlocked so could be opened.

Path subsiding, July 2014.

Repaired Dec 2016

Steep and narrow. The path from Blairlinn Industrial Estate to Lenziemill Road.

The path to Luggiebank ahead, with a path into the Luggiebank Wood Wildlife Reserve off to the side.

Old, but reasonably well built. The path to Luggiebank.

Route 1 sign in Carbrain. The steps up ahead have a ramp around the side.

The Lye Brae footbridge looking towards Carbrain. The path alongside the houses continues right through Carbrain to meet the Cumbernauld Cycle Route 1, and is quite useable on a bike.

The Lye Brae footbridge, looking towards Kildrum. This could easily be part of the Cumbernauld Cycle Network.

An unnecessarily abrupt change of direction for path.

The path from the Vault Glen at the Kildrum Road underpass.

Looking from the Vault Glen bridge towards Kildrum. The bridge is double width.

The Vault Glen path, looking from the Abronhill side towards the railway bridge.

The Vault Glen path, looking towards Abronhill.

In Cumbernauld you can actually live above your cycle path! Quite why route 2 isn't routed straight through to the school access road I don't know.

Path ends into driver's car door. Hope he doesn't decide to get out just as I approach.

The path to the Wardpark Industrial Estate has been left to rot. Why not upgrade this path and include it in the Cumbernauld Cycle Network?

A vandalised cycle route sign attached to a pedestrian waymarker post. There also isn't a right turn at this T-junction, so the waymarker post must be facing the wrong way. See also #80231.

A vandalised cycle route sign attached to a pedestrian waymarker post, at a sharp turn. See also #80232.

Route 3 approaching Cumbernauld Theatre.

The path alongside the canal is muddy in places, and is obstructed by a gate.

A route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 1f nearing Dalshannon.

Route signs that have been twisted around so they are not facing on-coming users. Routes 1 and 1b part company here.

A route sign for cycle route 1. No mention of routes 1a or 1b that we saw back at #70711. Have we missed the turnoff?

Welcome to Cumbernauld! Some of the route signs have been twisted round a bit, so it is not obvious which route they point to at the crossroads of paths. Routes 1a and 1b are signed from here, but do not reappear on the signs until they bra ... [more]

Nearly there! The path nears Cumbernauld town centre.

Grade-separated paths!

The step-free path to Cumbernauld town centre.

Sign for cycle route 1 at the new bridge over the railway. The path on the right goes to one of the platforms at Cumbernauld Station.

A 'Cyclists Dismount' sign on Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 at a railway bridge, matching the similar sign in #67680 for the opposite direction.

Route 2 in Kildrum, heading down to the footbridge at #67683.

Route 2 in Kildrum.

Route 2 in Kildrum.

Route 1 takes the path from the industrial estate towards the railway station.

Poor transition between path and roadway, and the footway has a completely superfluous step.

Another route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2, plus some barriers where the path crosses the access road to a small car park.

Route sign for Cumbernauld's cycle route 2 in Condorrat. The next section of path is right in front of some houses.

The path alongside North Road has been designated part of Cumbernauld cycle route 4.

The reverse of #70290, in the centre of the Craiglinn Interchange roundabout.

A total mess! It appears that all 6 signs for this triangular junction at Craiglinn Interchange have been put on the one pole, at one corner of the junction, and the signs have been twisted around to point in random directions. (Reverse see ... [more]

Some signs twisted around pole (square poles could have been used to prevent this). Destinations could aid users in deciding between route numbers on a network which has pretty minimal publicity besides the signs themselves.

Not the best-sited litter bin on the path around Broadwood Stadium. Cycle parking for the leisure centre in at the right. New path from Blackwood coming in on the left.

The path around the stadium to the leisure centre and tennis courts.

Boardwalk and standing stones, next to Broadwood Loch.

Path around Broadwood Loch, at the 500m marker stone.

Path around Broadwood Loch.

A flight of steps that could be replaced by a ramp on triangular path junction. Funded by the National Lottery apparently.

A short flight of steps on path from Broadwood Loch which could be ramped using the space available.

A footpath in Cumbernauld that seems to have been forgotten about!

The path and track alongside the M80 motorway stop dead at a locked gate. Only the motorway carries on.
