Ghost Bike on Princes Street, Edinburgh Zhi Min Soh

Ghost Bike on Princes Street, Edinburgh Zhi Min Soh

Edinburgh: we want more people to cycle! Also Edinburgh: here’s a new cycle lane on a main road!

Hey @Edinburgh_CC, what’s the thought process to install cycle lanes on roads but then let nettles grow over them so they’re impossible to use? This is Duddingston Road West. Any chance in getting this fixed ASAP? @SpokesLothian … [more]

This on southbound A7. There to protect cycle lane to #ERI. Wands dumped inside entrance to park. @EdinPolSE @lmacinnessnp

Replacement 'magic paint' cycleway on George Street as much use as a chocolate teapot

A reminder that details are important - puddle exactly on the new #meadows #innocent bike extension See also #67244.

Why not? #welcometoEdinburgh

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

NCN75 on North St Andrew Street

NCN75 on North St Andrew Street.

Words fail me. NCN75.

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 … [more]

Watch out for that door!

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

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

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?

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

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

Turn right, unless you're cycling

Useless cycle lanes #1 Location: Newhaven, Edinburgh (Scotland, United Kingdom) Why bother? Does this help anyone? No. You've got to feel sorry for the people who have to paint these bizarre white lines. Can anyone think this is useful to … [more]

poor drainage on road

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

More blasted cobbles in Scotland Street.

A road closure here - for tramway works. But there's no special crossing for bikes - who have to use the pedestrian crossings.

Danger - make sure you don't ride into the tramlines. A cycle tour of Edinburgh at the CycleNation / CTC conference, November 2010.

More blasted cobbles!
