Another 'End of Cycle Route' followed immediately by the continuation of the same cycle route. Slow for and give way to anyone with keys to the gate.

The shared-use path from the canal to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park and continuing onwards to the Park'n'Ride car park at the A803/A883 roundabout.

The Forth & Clyde Canal, with the Falkirk Wheel just out of sight off to the right.

Really not the end of the cycle route, which continues across the road crossing. If there were special regulations like on a motorway an 'end of cycle path regulations' sign would be appropriate, but it isn't like that.

With all these 'End of Cycle Route' signs, it is difficult to tell where the HArTT route continues!

The cycle lane marking at the end of Callendar Boulevard encourages cycling on the wrong side of the road, just like #101199 at the other end of the road.

The end of Callendar Boulevard and the start of the path to Old Redding Road.

The HArTT cycle route crossing Icehouse Brae (North), with a waymarker post tucked away in the corner. Surprisingly, no 'End of Cycle Route' signs!

The HArTT cycle route turns right here, across Icehouse Brae, near the roundabout with the A9. What I didn't notice at the time was the shared-use sign on the grass verge to the right, before the roundabout.

A single bollard in an already narrow path, approached in all directions by paths. Is this really necessary? No directions on the signpost for the route to the right, which also happens to be the HArTT cycle route.

'End of Cycle Route'? The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a link to Grangemouth through the underpass on the right. See #102937 for a close-up of the directions sign.

Looking across NCN76 at the path junction near Torwood Avenue.

The paths clearly existed before NCN76 came along, and the alignments and widths were not altered.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

NCN76 shared footway looking towards Zetland Park.

The transition between shared footway and road is a mess, with right-angled turns, and a bin and a cabinet blocking the way.

NCN76 turns right here towards Bo'ness while the Inchyra Road route carries on towards Grangemouth oil refinery (although this is not signed).

A sign with its posts blocking part of the width of the shared-use footway along Inchyra Road. The path clearly predates the sign. If someone is coming the other way, one of you will have to slow down to let the other go first.

A road sign straddling the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, with the posts more or less at the edges of the path, unlike the next sign.

NCN76 joins the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road, but has several barriers across it.

The exit from Rannoch Park, a path from Rannoch Road, and their connection to the shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road.

The shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road. The person with the bike had ridden through Rannoch Park but dismounted at the awkward bit linking the park to the main road (see #102853).

The shared-use footway alongside Inchyra Road. I'm sure there is room for the mobile phone mast to have been positioned further back and out of the way of the cycleway.

A path to Rannoch Park at the end of the Inchyra Road shared-use footway.

The uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across the A905 leads to the Inchyra Road shared-use footway. Presumably anyone cycling over that painted 'END' has to turn left with the traffic, onto the carriageway leading back to Inchyra Road.

A triple uncontrolled crossing across the A905 carriageways for pedestrians at Cadgers Brae Roundabout, across to the Inchyra Road shared use footway which runs between Rannoch Park and Grangemouth oil refinery.

Mumrills Road is now a well surfaced path between Sandy Loan and the A9 underpass at Beancross.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway crosses Westburn Avenue to get to the signalled crossing on Glenfuir Road and the bridge over the canal to the main towpath. The footway widening doesn't quite make it to the end of the shared footway.

The Westburn Avenue shared footway crossing Blinkbonny Road.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway passes a caged pedestrian crossing.

The view the opposite way to #101520, and the end of an unspecified cycle route. The HArTT cycle route comes through here too, but is without a sign.

Various signs but no mention of the HArTT cycle route which comes through here and along the path to Bainsford according to the council's map. See also #101522.

The A9 shared-use footway/cycleway turns a corner into Mungalend and just ends. The A9 itself continues without any cycle provision. The car parked on the footway across the junction has 'for sale' notices in the window. Buy from a pavem ... [more]

A poorly filled trench across the shared-use footway/cycleway alongside the A9, and a 'Cyclists Dismount' sign at the pedestrian crossing. The shared footway continues (for a short distance) beyond the crossing.

Posts for the huge motorist sign have been kept (almost) out of the way of the cycleway.

Unlike the provision for crossing to Abbotsford Business Park, where left and right turns are catered for instead of forced right-angled turns, the path to Hayfield is made difficult to use with a chicane barrier.

Left and right turns catered for at the Abbotsford Business Park junction on the A9 shared footway/cycleway, instead of the usual forced right-angled turn.

Low hanging branches above the A9 shared-use footway.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, as well as crossing the side roads to industrial estates.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, although there appears to be room for it to stay on the same side. There's even a signalled crossing in about half a mile or so.

The shared-use footway alongside the A9 crosses sides for some reason, although there's a choice of going clockwise or anti-clockwise around the roundabout. But someone going to Abbotsford Business Park has to cross the A9 twice.

The shared footway alongside the A9, with a warning for drivers of the crossing up ahead.

The turnoff from the A9 shared footway for the ramp down to the Forth & Clyde Canal, including a marker post for the HArTT cycle route.

A sign warning of the path junction up ahead. There's another beyond the junction facing the wrong way.

A sign warning of a path joining from the right. It's more of a dirt path than an actual cycle track.

A metal barrier and a parked Falkirk Council van blocking the shared footway/cycleway at the A9 roundabout.

Signs for motorists are bigger.

Barriers across an exit from the Helix park.

Helix signage outside the football stadium.

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park. What are dismounted cyclists to do when there's no footway on the road ahead?

Needless barriers at the Laurieston Road entrance to the Helix park.

The start of the not exactly terribly wide shared-use footway along Westburn Avenue. It doesn't look much different from the bit that isn't shared-use.

An uncontrolled at-grade crossing of the A9 road, on the path to the Helix park.

Signs for all directions.

Direction signs at the access from Bracken Avenue, but why this obsession with "End of Cycle Route" signs in this town? The path doesn't end until it reaches the road in any case. Also, the signs on one side are lit, and those on the side a ... [more]

The sign invites left turns from the Lionthorn Road shared-use footway onto the path to Slamannan Road, but the barriers makes them rather awkward with a bike.

A junction between shared-use paths, but there appears to be no expectation of users from this direction wanting to turn right, with no shortcut path on the desire line.

A shared-use footway on Lionthorn Road, but I initially missed its existence back at the roundabout so had to bump the kerb and grass to get onto it.
