A bit of a stroll down Princes Street to see the - wait, what do we call these things? - to enable cycles to cross tram tracks. https://t.co/ujg4aq3wOO

After a torrent of protests the ban on cycling into Edinburgh Waverley station has been lifted - but there's a barrier to force dismounting at the bottom.

Uphill cycle lane only.

Now that Princes Street is only used by buses, trams and bikes the ASL seems less necessary.

I wonder if they could have found a way to send NCN route 1 this way instead of on the road.

Short shared-use section allowing cyclists to bypass traffic lights.

Bikes welcome on Edinburgh trans

Famous sights in Edinburgh including the Scott monument with Princes Street in the background. Waverly station's tastefully repurposed booking office is to the right. https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/pub-histories/scotland/edinburgh/the-boo ... [more]

No right turn into Cultins Road, but the footway has shared-use signs on it at various points, such as at #65561.

Cycleway junction near Edinburgh Park station.

Cycleway tramway crossing on route 8.

Route 8 crosses the tramway, while the speed limit sign has gained an "except buses, taxis & cycles" plate!

A dual carriageway ahead, and the start of another section of painted cycle lane.

A road closure with bollards and "No Entry except cycles" signs.

Sign explaining signs on westbound "RR" cycle route have red backgrounds while eastbound the backgrounds are green. The signs in photo #65672 have the all important directions to be taken at the upcoming junction.

The start of the cycle lane on Oxgangs Road, on the "RR" cycle route, but there are parked cars up ahead.

"RR" route sign at Fairmilehead.

The "RR" cycle route carries straight on here.

The first route sign I noticed for the "RR" cycle route since joining at Gilmerton Dykes Street. It isn't even at a junction!

The junction of the "RR" cycle route with the A701 at Kaimes has nothing more than Advance Stop Lines.

In Gracemount, the "RR" cycle route looks like it is just an ordinary road, with no special cycle infrastructure.

Opening gate at entrance to Moredun Wood, Ellen's Glen and the Burdiehouse Burn Valley Park, which leads to a woodland trail that is useable on a bike, but you wouldn't come through here on the way back from the supermarket!

Toucan crossing across Craigmillar Castle Road

A cycle path in front of flats in Craigmillar Castle Road. While this bit is straight, it gets twisty further down the hill. Parked cars protrude into the cycle space.

Gate with gap on former railway line, approaching toucan crossing across Duddingston Road West

The Innocent Railway Path approaching the Innocent Tunnel, with the path into Holyrood Park off to the left.

Limited sightlines at the junction with the Innocent Railway Path (NCN1).

The path from Cultins Road joins the Union Canal towpath, which is lit with LED catseyes at this point. No identification of the location is offered to canal users.

The official link between the Union Canal and Cultins Road, which has both a double yellow line and a white line across the dropped kerb.

The end of the George Street cycleway at St Andrew Square

The George Street cycleway, blocked ahead by a Festival event.

The cycleway switches from the north to the south side of George Street, with cyclists being directed around the roundabout by white road markings.

The noticeboard explains the changes that have been made to George Street, including the new cycleway.

The view looking west along Edinburgh Family Network route 8, at the junction with the path to Saughton tram stop.

The junction of the Edinburgh Family Network route 8 and the path to Saughton tram stop. The white line on the main path has been erased for a short section. The toucan crossing across Saughton Road is arranged somewhat better than at Broom ... [more]

The main cycle parking stands and some lockers, at the Ingliston Park & Ride side on the outskirts of Edinburgh

Cycle parking at Ingliston Park & Ride tram stop, very close to the edge of the tarmac.

A path under the railway line at Edinburgh Park station. There isn't really any reason why the steps connecting the path to the station couldn't have a ramp, removing the need for the detour via Lochside Crescent.

The route to Edinburgh Park station, accessed past barrier in #59026, is via the path to the right.
