Why don't cyclists use cycle lanes?

2 comments:

  1. Also in Britian paths alongside the carriageway are usually only on one side of the road. This means delay and hazzard for cyclists going in the "wrong" direction.
    In countries with good cycle paths it's often illegal for cyclists to use the one on the wrong side!

  2. James I would add:
    8) Inconsistent design along a single route and between routes in urban areas presents a confusion of priorities and destinations
    9) Poor and inconsistent signage especially when merging with pedestrian paths

    Both these make recognition of actual route difficult for all - eg when route deviates from actual known geographical direction desired to be travelled AND complaints from pedestrians when cycling on pavements.
