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!

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

A tiny route confirmation sign on Baird Drive. Route 8 Edinburgh Park to City Centre.

Three possible directions for NCN75 on the same sign

End of Route. Cyclists Dismount. No alternative given.

Sign pointing the wrong way.

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

Battered cycle route sign
