Surprise, surprise....

It's really not rocket science but someone needs to get up and make the great public statement I guess.

"Bike lanes make cycling safer, encourages more cycling"

Onya Doylie. :wink:
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.

Truth be told it is alot more than that. All the recent installations there have been put in as a trial basis. This is typical politicking to make the changes more palatable at the time of installation. Funnily enough Melbourne's streets didn't grind to a halt (well not any more severely than normal :lol: ) and so we get to keep the lanes.

After reading all the rubbish Sydney cyclists have to endure I would love to give ol' Doylie a hug! :mrgreen:

Hardly surprising.

Sydney on the other hand is a cycling Mecca or a horror story depending on where you live.
