No thanks, some of them look like they were designed (and installed) by Kerri Anne Kenneldweller.

See these, straight onto the road methinks. I won't subscribe to the "lip service" model of providing riding facilities.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

The English signage for cycling is totally inappropriate in our abusive road user culture.

This gets my vote. Cyclists in that part of the world should wear lifejackets.

I actually think some of those look fun, and a good test of handling abilities and reflexes.

There's nothing like coming around a corner at 30kmh to be faced with... A tree in the path... Quick, swerve... Oncoming traffic... Quick swerve again... Baby pram on path... Emergency break... Phew.

I love the "watch for bikes" sign.
