Gallery: 'Hybrid' cycle tracks - on-road but protected

Examples from around the world of 'hybrid' cycle lane provision. These paths are on-road, thus giving cyclists the usual visibility and priority over sideroads, but there is some kind of physical demarcation between the cycle lane and the carriageway.

Hybrid Cycle lane. Click on the photo to get a clearer indication of the nature of this provision - on-road but with a feeling of off-road provision.

'Hybrid' cycle track in Aarhus, Denmark. The path is on-road but there is a physical demarcation between the cycle lane and the carriageway. (Exact location within Aarhus unknown)

Location may not be exact, but it was somewhere near here. A nice example of 'Hybrid Provision' - near segregation of bikes, pedestrians and cars, though sadly it didn't last for long. At road junctions this cycle lane does have the same ... [more]

Hybrid cycle lane - on-road but some protection from the traffic.

Hybrid cycle lane - on-road but some protection from the traffic. Merges back onto the road height, maintaining priority over sideroads (unlike pavement-style provision).

Hybrid cycle lane - on-road but some protection from the traffic. Close up of detail of this particular solution. The raised height may not be the best solution for this kind of provision.

Interesting but apparently controversial road layout, where a bus zone on the left half of the road takes up most of the space, and all other traffic, including cycles goes to the right. Cyclists have a choice whether to go through the b ... [more]

See previous pictures #17222 and #17223. This is the continuation of the cycle lane. Notice how much road space has been given to non-car transport.

Detail of slightly raised hybrid cycle lane continued from photo #17223. Seems to use a solid white line, so presumably is formally a MCL, as well as no park signs (not that space for unloading would be useful in this location).

Merge of cycle lane at crossing.

Merge onto slightly raised hybrid cycle lane

Merge from hybrid cycle lane back onto the road (in distance). Not quite clear why it needs to narrow.

End of hybrid cycle lane - merges back to road height gracefully.

Parking bay provided on other side of hybrid cycle lane. (Potential dooring zone issue but the cycle lane is wide.)

Hybrid cycle lane - cycle lane continues across junction, maintaining priority over sideroads.
