Right, I've decided I should probably stop lurking and actually post something! On Sunday I came off my bike when cycling through a bit of town I don't normally go through. Was going along when I saw what looked to be to be the most pointless cycle lane ever, taking me off the road and basically just through the pavement for a bit. Thought to myself: 'I'm not going on this stupid lane - I'm going to stay in the traffic where I belong!'. Anyway, moments later, came off as I went over some tram lines. It turns out that this lane was actually a rather good idea!: (I assume you can spot what it is! The picture's taken from after the bit where I came off, so to speak, lane on the right of the picture, road on the left).
