Brilliant things on the way to work
Is that in that Belgium?
Yep, it’s Brussels. I read up a bit on it and it seems as though it’s another test of something that was tried in another city where it was successful. There is a bit of a risk here as it is on quite a busy street but in summer the bikes can block the street during rush hour anyway so it may not end up being that controversial. Still a brilliant move though rather than the half-assed stuff that we sometimes get. Would love to have full segregated lanes but this may be a good second bestPosted 4 years ago
I was just cycling on my way into work this morning as usual when I suddenly came upon this:
Someone had taken one of the lanes of a two lane road and stuck a bike lane right down the middle of it. None of the trying to squeeze and extra teeny lane in right next to the car doors. This was a full on right down the middle job. Brilliant. Cars are even leaving it well alone after only one day rather than driving over it.
Then I realised that the road turned to one lane round the corner so my joy had to end but no….
They’ve only gone and made it priority to bikes not cars. Cars just have to wait behind. And just to prove the point…
We got bike symbols all over the road and all the way down it. 😀
Anyone else had a great start to their day?Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Leffeboy, I often take a camera on sunny, glorious days. Crossing the Col du Blackfriars on a spring evening at sunset is stunning.
Never needed to record my commute, though. Mainly because I don’t ride like a dick, so never get in to the sort of situation that might merit recording! 🙂Posted 4 years agondthorntonMember

I got blasted by a lorrys horn for choosing not to ride on the cycle path on a short section of road – again. Really getting sick of this – terror followed quickly by rage. If only it wasnt up hill maybe I could catch the ba****ds up and do……something?
What bike do you ride leffeboy? Looks nice! Wish we had that kind of infrastructure in the UK
Sorry for being late in replying jmahon, I was out of action for a few days. It’s a very poor picture of a very lovely Shand Stoater.
Steam railway pic is great as well. Seems out of place when you are heading to work. Feels a bit like when they used to run a ferry back from Burnt Island to Edinburgh and you could put you bike on it rather that doing the ride home. Felt like being on holiday.Posted 4 years agoadi66Member
During January’s cold snap, I rode past this little beauty every day, It was a bush that got splashed with water (from a burst pipe up the road) every time a car drove past it.
Looked amazing, and I kinda watched it grow over the days, then die during the freeze, Wish I could have seen it in the daylight, but long working days didn’t allow it.Posted 4 years ago
Leffeboy; where is that street?
Haven’t come across it yet on my motorbike commute through Bruss..
Top end of Ave Louise (general Jacques end). You won’t see it as you’ll be doing 150 down the two lane bit in the middle while we are on the side lanes holding up the traffic 🙂Posted 4 years ago
