@ERsafecycling @Visit_Whitelee @EastRenCouncil @EastRenPolice @polscotrpu This was it again today. Is anything going to be done about this before someone is killed?

A kerb across the path into Fairweather Park from Greenlaw Road.

Signs on the Capelrig Way at one junction, but the previous junction had none and the main path diverges from the path back to Capelrig Road.

The Capelrig Way links through Crookfur to a couple of schools. But stops when it reaches Capelrig Road.

@helenpidd @GoBikeGlasgow Totally pointless cycle lane. Same cars there. Every. Single. Day. There is a car park behind the building too. This requires you to move out into gas traffic who are trying to turn left in a few metres. Near White ... [more]

Hi @EastRenCouncil , could you arrange to have this traffic information sign repositioned so that it doesn't block the cycle lane for the next 6 weeks? Its current position is creating conflict between people cycling and buses/cars etc. T ... [more]

Cycle parking at Whitecraigs station.

Ayr Road at Whitecraigs.

'Welcome to Rouken Glen Park'...oh wait.

Paths exist off of Stewarton Road, but there are steps.

A secure gate blocking access to the Dams to Darnley Country Park at Patterton.

The farm at Patterton was provided with a bridge over the M77 motorway when it was built, but now the farm has been abandoned, the bridge is blocked by a gate at the far side, preventing access to the Dams to Darnley Country Park.

An abandoned farm where an access to the Dams to Darnley Country Park could be provided.

According to Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, the Patterton Park & Ride site was not just for Patterton rail station but was to become "one of the major access points in the [Dams to Darnley] country park". But now the farm has been a ... [more]

Also told there's no space for cycle infra here in Giffnock... :/ #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

More than 3 hours cycling around Glasgow today for #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17 can be summed up by this last photo I took on the way home...

Driver was nice enough to stage a dooring for me on Kilmarnock Road to demonstrate how bad the lane is. Thanks :) #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Tale of 2 councils: Part 5 Then we get to the border of @GlasgowCC… and it literally vanishes. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Tale of 2 councils: Part 3 East Ren let down by this poor shared-use path through Govan… which nobody uses. #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Tale of 2 councils: Part 2 Not perfect through Mearns - East Ren said not enough room to segregate… but isomething #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Tale of 2 councils: Part 1 Nice segregated lane runs ~8 miles through Ayrshire then East Ren to south of Glasgow #GlasgowCycleInfraDay17

Haw @EastRenCouncil your bike lanes in the door zone are bad enough but this really is taking the piss! Move the sign please.

The path from Snypes Reservoir isn't really suitable for cycling, plus there's a gate to climb over. But not too far to walk.

A forest track near Neilston Pad.

The main junctions along the Spine Road are all signposted. Hopefully once the signs have had time to weather in a bit they will become easier to read.

This car has been blocking the shared use path on Neilston Rd for 4 days running. Can you help, @EastRenCouncil?

A segregated bike lane on the A77. Hell yeah!!

Cycle parking stand outside shops in Eaglesham

Cycle parking stand outside library

Steps replaced with ramp by Sustrans-funded project on path linking Carnwadric with Thornliebank. Signed route continues to Giffnock.

The Spine Road in Whitelee Wind Farm - not too rough for road bikes with reasonably fat tyres

Track in Whitelee Wind Farm, not too rough for road bikes with reasonably fat tyres.

Covered cycle parking at the Whitelee Wind Farm. There are also showers and an outdoor water tap available.

The Eaglesham Moor Road has cycle lanes each way, but since the road itself is only two lanes wide, cars are driven in the cycle lanes routinely, as if they are not there.

Vilnius-style cycle parking in East Renfrewshire! This pathetic excuse for a cycle parking stand is next to the café in Rouken Glen Park.

Not cycle parking, but this looks more like cycle parking than the actual cycle parking does! (See #41232)

Regular distance signs are a feature of the A77 cycle route

Two cycle parking stands and two lockers at Barrhead railway station (one stand is hidden by lamppost)

Typical - they put in a cycle lock thing then East Renfrewshire council obstruct it with a large bin Outside EAT deli in Clarkston
