Cycle parking at Blantyre station.

The underpass beneath Queensway, connecting St Lawrence Park and Falkland Drive. Like many of the old underpasses in East Kilbride, there is a cycleway and separate footway.

The excellent footbridge across Kingsway, connecting Kelso Drive and Burns Park. A few more of these wouldn't go amiss!

The cycle track along Queensway, between Birniehill and The Murray roundabouts.

A fine example of a 'Cycles Only' sign, at the start of the cycle track leading to the Birniehill Roundabout underpasses.

A Glasgow Commonwealth Games 'Legacy 2014' stand has found its way to South Lanarkshire College. A workstand has also been supplied.

Cycle parking at South Lanarkshire College.

East Kilbride's cycle route 1 in the park.

Since the NCN74 cycleway is separated from the road by a decent sized verge, there is no question of roadsigns blocking the cycleway.

NCN74 alongside the B7078 (the old A74) where the former dual carriageway has been converted into a single carriageway road and a decent cycleway.

After a rubbish detour around Lesmahagow, the cycle route becomes rather good again! The former dual carriageway has been converted into a single carriageway road and a decent cycle path.

The cycle route south of Blackwood starts off as a shared footway, but then it changes into a proper cycleway.

A diagonal ramp through the steps, but watch out for people blindly walking straight down the steps unaware of anything happening around them.

Traffic filtering at Post Gate. Ahead is the Palace Grounds retail park. But Castle St (crossing just beyond the bollards, see #38911) is No Vehicles and excludes cycling.

Some of the cycle (and motorcycle) parking at Uddingston station, seen at the weekend.

The Smart Bridge between Shawfield and Dalmarnock.

Road closure with bikes allowed through. The bollards are a little close together, but they are arranged diagonally to make it slightly easier to get through. There are rumble strips across the cycleway here, presumably due to the falling g ... [more]

One of the better pieces of cycle infrastructure in Hamilton, the toucan crossing across High Blantyre Road on Glenlee Street.

A nice wide path between New Douglas Park and Auchinraith Avenue. However, it doesn't last and it's back to standard shared narrow footway around the corner!

New bridge heading into dalmarnock with amazing overlooked buildings in the background. http://t.co/rooXqZDvdt

Expanding provision of cycle parking at Lanark station

New cycle parking shelter at Lanark station

Cycle track next to A70 road approaching Hyndford Bridge (see also #49698)

Start of segregated cycle track alongside main A70 road to Hyndford Bridge, at Carmichael junction.

(from #49694) ...this section of cycle track allows cyclists to get from Hyndford Bridge to the minor road to Carmichael and onwards to Biggar, without going on the main A70 road.

One of the two sets of stands have been taken out of the cycle parking shelter in the woodlands across the road (see #38919) and relocated to outside the entrance to the visitors' centre and café.

Fire Path with gaps for cycles, although the signage does not say cycles are allowed through.

A nice bit of road on the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route

A rare example of a No Through Road except cycles sign.

Sign for Uddingston on cycle route from East Kilbride.

NCN74 alongside B7078, with M74 motorway seen in the distance

A Sustrans mile post on probably Britain's highest cycle path. The old A74 was a dual carriageway. After the motorway was built this was reduced to a single carriageway plus an excellent cycle path. It's very remote. The sign reads "12M to ... [more]

One of the highest quality, smoothest, longest bike paths in the UK. It's half of a dual carriageway closed when the motorway opened (the other half is still a road). This is also probably the highest altitude bike path in the UK.
