NO MEAN STREETS POT HOLES
and cycling provision in Glasgow
A few examples, in case you wonder why cyclists complain...
Reporting POT HOLES to the CITY COUNCIL
George V Bridge: old provision and (below) Squinty Bridge, new development with luxury provision!
Bath Street, newly refurbished: four lanes for cars, including one for parking on the right. Yes, it looks like it, but it's not a motorway in the middle of town. Cars also park in the left lane, and you get very close overtakes (below) Must pass cyclist, must pass cyclist, must pass cyclist...
Parking on the left, pressure from the right, fitting in the middle, feeling like an outcast.
Common issue: narrow cycle lane turns into narrow left-turn lane for cars.
