Stepped cycle track with painted priority over side roads. Dropped kerb technology leaves something to be desired here however.

They don't like music here.

Quiet country road up the hill to Aurel Vlaicu and the monastery. Marked as having a 'cycle track' on OSM but quite clearly it should have been marked as a recommended 'cycle route' instead.

Yellow line on the pavement - 'cycle infrastructure' in Sighișoara.

Some of the villages around here had surprisingly very high quality pavements along the country roads and quite a few people cycling. I'm told that cycling has been a common means of transport for villagers for over a century. Unsurprising ... [more]

An attempt at providing lightly segregated cycle infrastructure, here shown at a roundabout, including a walking and cycling priority crossing. The quality is poor but it's clearly a starting point for a city where not much is expected. Sur ... [more]

Horribly wide roads filled with insane amounts of motor traffic. Very unpleasant for everyone. This is no way to build a city. Sad to see the consequences of car-crazed planning visited on the people here.

A wide pavement with a really crummy painted cycleway and pavement-parked cars. This side of the city seemed to have worse infrastructure than the other side. But selfish pavement parking is widespread here.

Pavement parking is the scourge of Romania.

Paint is not infrastructure, Bucuresti edition.

'End' of a bidirectional protected cycleway. Joins with another cycleway (coloured red) in a weird, 90-degree fashion, controlled by signals.

A right-turn lane for cycling, controlled by signals, in addition to a bidirectional protected and segregated cycleway.

Separate cycling traffic control signals based on lane. A little crude-looking compared to Dutch or even London examples, but effective.

Easy-boarding bike share

Compact roundabout with Zebra crossings in a small Romanian city. Not unusual though, pretty common junction type all over the country. I just happened to be passing through and thought I'd snap a photo. There's also somebody cycling in the ... [more]

Better map of Cluj's cycle routes

Surprising amount of covered cycle parking at this mall in Iasi, Romania, a city which otherwise has virtually no cycle facilities.

Parking for ten bikes in the space occupied by one car.

Bikeshop, Reghin, Romania

Route through park, Lugoj, Romania

Cut-through behind the town hall, Lugoj, Romania

Trikes seem more common in Romania than in the UK.

Crud road closure in Lugoj, Romania

Cut-through from the market, Lugoj, Romania

Embankment path leading to new foot/cycle bridge, Lugoj, Romania - this could be made into an excellent cycle track.

Cycle route sign

Bridge now closed to motor traffic

Typical Romanian roadworks - they take forever and they make no provision for people to get past.

cycle path in Savarsin, Romania

Cycle parking, public toilets

Lots of workers' bikes outside the Romanian royal family's country pad.

Not sure whether the pedestrian route to the Corvin castle, Hunedoara, is permanent as per the sign or temporary as per the barrier, but you can cycle up anyway.

Bikes of various kinds at the Arsenal Park outdoor activities centre, Orastie, Romania

Pedestrian zone in central Orastie, Romania

Well-used cycle parking at this Carrefour Market shop.

Segregated riverside route in Sânnicolau Mare, Romania

Riverside route in Sânnicolau Mare, Romania

This clearly doesn't apply to cycles, which are all over this traffic-free street.

Lots of bikes and cycle parking on the traffic-free main drag of Sannicolau Mare - as usual the Hungarian-populated towns have a stronger cycling culture than the Romanian ones.

Link to foot/cycle bridge in Sânnicolau Mare, Romania - we decided that the No Cycling sign refers to the path to the right.

If you can park cars here there's no reason why it shouldn't be improved for cycling.

Cyclists wheeling their bikes in the centre of Timisoara - there's really no sense in banning cycling here.

Romanian roadworks - never any thought for pedestrians or others.

Fancy new paving in Timisoara - and cycling has been banned here.

If they insist on banning cycling on Timisoara's main north-south pedestrian access then parallel links like this need to be improved.

Excellent - cycle racks on top of the former road into the Hotel Timisoara car park.

Odd mix of red and green cycle lane markings.

Cut-through in Timisoara - I think the No Entry sign refers to the car park exit.

Pedestrianisation past Timisoara's synagogue - cycling has now been banned on the north-south pedestrian axis.

VeloTM bike-sharing station well placed at Timisoara's central tram stop.
