Grrr. Stupid signs/street furniture in cycle lane.
TBH I’m more concerned that those Union
JacksFlags aren’t the right way up!!
Edit: and you do know that publicising your kids route to school on the internet is just asking for some thief to come along and steal them? You’ll be spending the rest of your week in Cash Converters trying to track them down.Posted 4 years agoThurman MermanMember
Sorry for your lad. Heads-up next time, though, eh?
It’s not a cycle lane. In fact it doesn’t even look like it’s a continuation of the Segregated Shared-Used Path right there… Sign refers to the bus lane in the road.
Still, it’s a dumb place to put a sign. See Warrington Cycle Campaign for many many more bad examples of what not to do with street furniture and/or cycle lanes.Posted 4 years agolemonysamMember
I think this one is rather good. Both announcing the presence of a cycle lane and reducing the width of said cycle lane by half.

lots of posts like that on a cycle path near me – proper slalom to get through them! unfortunately trafficky type engineering CAD monkeys will just plop them wherever on a plan without any consideration of the people who use them, not helped by site fitters on site who stick em wherever the plan says without hesitation/thought of questioning itPosted 4 years agomidlifecrashesSubscriber
My son managed to clatter into this stupid sign in the middle of the cycle lane this morning and then hit the deck. Don’t know if he was drafting his big sister too closely and not seen her chain gang type hand signal or whether he just wobbled a bit too close to it. Mashed the end of his finger and the nail will be coming off, messed up his second day at new school.
It’s always annoyed me that one, as if you pass to the right of it, you’re supposedly in the pedestrian side of a divided path, pass the other side and the lamp post is a bit close for comfort. Anyway, how about posting pics of even stoopider cycle facilities?Posted 4 years ago
