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

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

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.

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

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.

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 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.

York Place beside the tram terminus

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.

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

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

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.

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 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]

Cycle-only entry to West Newington Place, Edinburgh

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

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]

Its a bit unexpected to find a driver in this cemetry - but I suppose if cars were banned then they might try and ban bikes too. A cycle tour of Edinburgh at the CycleNation / CTC conference, November 2010.

This theatre has expanded out onto what was a pavement area - presumably part of a package of measures to pedestrianize this location.
