Why the snobbery about cycle lanes anyway?

That's hardly a cycle lane that goes where the traffic goes... cycle lanes like this have existed for a long time, and don't usually go anywhere.

Um, I started typing this whilst it was playing...

...I won't spoil it.

At least the council is ticking their boxes whilst not putting cyclists into dangerous positions.

If you can get up to 88mph that should be no problem.
Had trouble with those Libyans though so that's no good

I like it.

On a serious note my issue with shared use lanes like that one is that I do over 20mph on the flat, and pedestrians walk over both sides. Even my wife told me I was being silly when walking on one and insisting that we walk on the ped side! What hope is there (She is normally defensive about cyclists given I cycle commute.)


Rabid cycle nut
This is a very good example of a useful one. Narrow, fast, straight road that can be pretty hairy. Nice clear, well-surfaced, fast shared use pavement.
Doesn't something like that add to the affermation that cyclists should cycle on the pavement?
