In Toronto a few months ago. I loved the cycleway into the city around the lake and that cars had to give way to bikes rather than the other way around.

I think I've seen one occasion of it here in Sydney so perhaps we're on the right path.

At Bareges on the Col du Tourmalet - Laurent Fignon Way
Taking advantage of the creation of a new road to climb the Col du Tourmalet (Barèges side), the General Council of the Hautes-Pyrénées and the city of Barèges decided to dedicate to cyclists, the old access road which saw the pass Tour de France from 1910. Thus, 2.4 km and 200 m of positive elevation are exclusively reserved for cyclists.

I saw this sign last month, and on 2 separate rides up the west side of Col du Tourmalet, I tried using it, but unfortunately there's a "Route Barrée" sign at the intersection with the main road, then about 1km farther on, the road is completely blocked by a rope barrier, so I guess maintenance is required / in-progress.

Saw a few of these west of Auckland.



I can think of a few spots where local councils could copy that with good effect.

Plenty of other goodies there too.

I've ridden past those ones too, they are good signs. If that's the same one its on the Scenic Drive somewhere near the southern end
If the R-1 rule is broken, what happens to N+1?
