I don't commute there, but sometimes shop. Secure bike parking/stands near all the main entrances would help- I think there is a bike stand, but it's tucked away past the unfashionabe end of M&S).
The tramworks seem to have dug up most of the bit of cyclepath avoiding the Gogar roundabout then abandon it.
As Touche knows, a 'better way to work' at the Gyle means avoiding the underpass up by Edinburgh Park station!! After months of being fine, it's now flooded again and under a foot of fetid, honking water.
Going through the Gyle estate is no better - the road appears to have been repeatedly cluster-bombed.
I suspect it's because they're digging up all along the nearby embankment for the tramworks - they'll have clogged up the drainage channel that was cut last year and kept the flooding away for months. I've done a Victor Meldrew-style email to the council again...
