Sign for cycle routes parallel to the Edinburgh bypass

Sign for cycle routes parallel to the Edinburgh bypass

I'm not sure why there is this brief diversion to the left.

New Cycle path with excellent destination signage.

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

A route sign for the college tells people on bikes to dismount and use the pedestrian crossing.

A sign for route 8 tells people on bikes to dismount and use the pedestrian crossing. There is plenty of room to provide a proper cycleway.

So having followed red background signs on the "RR" cycle route I now encounter one with a green background, which are meant to be for the opposite direction.

A route sign completely hidden from view by a larger sign!

Another confused sign for the "RR" cycle route. The red (westbound) direction is given as both straight ahead and U-turn back around the Clovenstone Roundabout.

On my first pass of this junction I saw the "RR" cycle route sign on the right at the last minute and continued to head straight on up the road on the left. However, after seeing no further signs, I came back to this junction for another lo ... [more]

So going back to photo #65669 we see that red is for westbound and green is for eastbound. So what does the top sign mean? Just as well it is almost hidden by the vegetation.

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.

"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!

Directions in the Burdiehouse Burn Valley Park are by way of these stone blocks. It wasn't obvious to me at the time which way was which, but I see from the map that it gives the name of a nearby street on one side.

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

The John Muir Way turns right here down the connection to the Innocent Railway Path (NCN1).

Tiny signage for the John Muir Way at the entrance to Holyrood Park, and no dropped kerb either.

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

Route sign pointing in wrong direction, cycle route continues down Dovecot Road straight ahead

Route sign on signed cycle route, but facing opposite direction from the direction cyclists will be coming from!

Sign says to turn right, but you need to cross the toucan crossing across Meadow Place Road first, then turn right onto road at far side

Sign for South Gyle station on South Gyle Road, part of the Haymarket to Edinburgh Park signed cycle route. Although it is continuously signed, this cycle route does not show the end points on signs, only local destinations.

Route sign for A8 cyclepath (few and far between) giving directions for junction ahead (see #37411) - no mention of airport, and Newbridge is given as left although cyclists heading for the A89 via the Newbridge Roundabout bridge should go ... [more]

First sign for Edinburgh, indeed the first cycle direction sign since Uphall!

Nice straightforward junction on National Cycle Network route 1

RR refers to the Regional Route parallel to the Edinburgh bypass (an A road on which cycling is banned)
