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

Uphill cycle lane only.

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

Cycle lane and cyclist preferring to keep right of the tramlines.

Buses, taxis and bikes only on Castle Terrace, Edinburgh

1/2 Yet another #designfail for #Edinburgh #cyclinginfrastructure. If this is what extra funding gets us we're screwed. https://t.co/8XNeziZQjN

New sticking plasters at Edinburgh tramlines https://t.co/Q0FFD5vd1X

Replacement 'magic paint' cycleway on George Street as much use as a chocolate teapot https://t.co/2qb5jsG69n

Road surface Hill Street

Leaving the King's Buildings Campus, a toucan light allows you to set off in all directions during the pedestrian phase. Unfortunately, in the other direction you can use the toucan only from the "quality bike corridor" on Mayfield Road (fo ... [more]

Why not? #welcometoEdinburgh http://t.co/Z5yo3eLmfF

Warning !! Awful road surface to navigate narrow road while keeping check of traffic in both direction.

Warning ! Horrific road surface to navigate on blind bend corner is often cut by oncoming traffic.

Poorly managed high speed junction, accident black spot to popular cyclist route away from main roads.

Heavily damaged road surface forcing cyclist to centre of carriage way on high speed carriageway with extensive usage by HGV's.

Warning ! Large crack in road forcing cyclists out to centre or carriageway. There is a second one 5 metres on.

A reminder that details are important - puddle exactly on the new #meadows #innocent bike extension http://t.co/E2xo0y9F0l See also #67245.

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

I don't know what they were thinking either! The cycle lane has a 'Give Way' at the far end of the bus stop.

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.

Random worn-out painted cycle lanes on a roundabout. Certainly not where I'd position myself on the road!

There is plenty of roadspace, but the cycle lanes have stopped, and the motorists are driving too fast, setting off the electronic speed sign.

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

The "RR" cycle route has plenty of roadspace, but it has been arranged for the convenience of motorists, without any thought about cycling!

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.

Narrow painted cycle lanes on Gilmerton Road

Narrow painted cycle lanes on very busy Old Dalkeith Road

A poor road surface on Bruntsfield Place, and a doorzone cycle lane past some car parking.

Roadspace on Bruntsfield Place, including people on their way to Pedal on Parliament.

Roadspace allocation on Merchiston Place

Roadspace on Spylaw Road

Roadspace on Ashley Terrace

The northern part of Cultins Road is one-way, but only a narrow and poorly signed shared-use footway has been provided for cyclists going the other way. This road links Edinburgh Park station and business park to the Union Canal.

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

There is a cycle path across the centre of the Cameron Toll roundabout

Traffic on Princes Street, and "(Cyclists) Caution Tram Tracks" sign hidden behind traffic signal head.

NCN75 on North St Andrew Street

NCN75 on North St Andrew Street.

Words fail me. NCN75.

York Place beside the tram terminus

Multi-stage caged toucan crossing across tramway and dual carriageway on South Gyle Broadway. It's clear what the local council's priorities are here. The observant will notice that the crossing call-button panel is for a pedestrian cros ... [more]

Road closure with way through for cycles.

Watch out for that door!

Cycle lanes on McDonald Road, with speed hump.

Traffic calming by cobbled speed cushion!

Road closure with bollards, that can be ridden through by bike.

A right turn that is banned for cars and lorries, but allowed for bikes and buses.

Puffin crossing (not toucan) on Balgreen Road outside tramstop, which forms part of Edinburgh's cycle route 8.

Crossing the tramlines here can be a serious hazard, take care.

Shared-use cycle lane. They went onto the footway at this point.

Road closure with exemption for cycles, but cycle gaps left at side where they are vulnerable to blockage by car parking. A central gap would be preferable.

Another road crossing on the tramway cycle path, this time away from the tram flyover

Toucan crossing underneath tram bridge. A great place to cross the road!

Tramway cycle path alongside road with random 'No Entry' sign.

The 'bus/taxi/cycle only' signs have been painted out and replaced with 'No Entry except local buses'. Why?

Track from underpass beneath A720 Edinburgh City Bypass meets road in Edinburgh Park

Track to Edinburgh Park approaching underpass beneath Edinburgh City Bypass

Fortified railway bridge on track near Edinburgh Park

Caution, construction traffic crossing.

Turn right, unless you're cycling

Cycle lanes on Gilmore Place, with part-time waiting restrictions

Cycle exemption from road closure on South Gyle Road, at station

Toucan Crossing across South Gyle Broadway

Cycle lanes on roundabout on South Gyle Broadway (see also #37436). Interestingly, there are no dropped kerbs for pedestrians crossing the roads at this roundabout. I've no idea whether the footways are shared-use or not. The A8 footways ... [more]

Cycle lanes on roundabout on South Gyle Broadway (see also #37437)

Uncontrolled crossing of three carriageways of A720 Edinburgh City Bypass (see also #37433). Also showing restrictions on vehicle classes on bypass.

Uncontrolled road crossing for cyclists and pedestrians crossing the A720 Edinburgh City Bypass (see also #37434). It is normally somewhat busier than in this picture!

Road crossing half way down side road on A8 cyclepath

Uncontrolled road crossing on A8 sliproad - cyclists for Edinburgh Airport, Ingliston and A89 via Newbridge Roundabout turn right here, left for Ratho, but see sign on #37412

Road crossings at Edinburgh Airport junction on A8 cyclepath: car park road uncontrolled, toucan crossing across sliproad to airport, bridge under A8 dual carriageway, uncontrolled across another sliproad, then continue Edinburgh-bound on o ... [more]

Recently pedestrianised street in Edinburgh's New Town

Cycle-only entry to West Newington Place, Edinburgh

One-way road with cycle lane to the left (becoming a contraflow lane)

poor drainage on road

B-ice-ycling The overnight freeze in Edinburgh cancelled my cycle to work, as all that slush that people have been complaining about has frozen solid and makes it just too dangerous to try some roads. This gent wasn't to be put off howev ... [more]

Tram left in the middle of Princes Street - a reminder of a project in trouble

Looking along Marine Esplanade - in a very industrial area by the coast.
