Brodick Cycles, Arran.

Irvine beach is easily reached from the local cycle network in the town.

Despite there being the space to do something good, the i3 cycle route is signed along the narrow footway of New Street. The obstructive control cabinet at the pedestrian crossing makes it even more difficult to use. Not very innovative!

I don't think this sign is pointing the right way. The path could be better aligned with the road crossing.

Despite being a signed cycle route between i3 and Irvine station (which also connects NCN73 and NCN7 although this is not mentioned on the signs), there is no dropped kerb at the end of the path to the Fullarton Street zebra crossing.

An already narrow shared-use footway in Fairlie, with a bus stop.

A narrow shared-use footway in Fairlie. I've no idea why specifically West Kilbride railway station is signed, when Fairlie's own station (with all the same train services) is much closer.

Cycle parking at Ardrossan Harbour station

This gate blocks the way for cyclists following NCN73 at Saltcoats. Not even a dropped kerb to get up onto the footway and through the gap!

No assistance is offered to cross the A737 trunk road at Highfield, other than the chance to cycle on the footway. When the Dalry Bypass is built the new crossing won't be any better.

Some cycle parking in Kilwinning town centre, comprising non-standard fancy stainless steel arcs that are more awkward to use than standard Sheffield Stands. There are another 3 stands at the other end of the Main Street.

A bit of a dip on the path !

Kilwinning station's token cycle parking stand. Every other available space is given over to car parking.

Beware of cyclists for 2 miles on NCN 73
