53032Photo #53032Bicycle roundabout at a junction of two crossing cycleways.

Many went the "correct way around" the roundabout, but others just cut the corner - there didn't appear to be a problem.

One arm had traffic lights to allow crossing of a main road.

48075Photo #48075Bicycle Road next to main road (which is next to the motorway)

The bicycle route is sufficiently far from the road to feel safe, has trees for shade and wind protection, yet close enough to feel like you are overlooked.

Note, that there is a pedestrian footpath that forks off to become yet another parallel route for a different mode of transportation.

44111Photo #44111Side road junction with a main road. Note that the footway is kept at the same level. Cycleway is continuous. Also note that the drop from the footway to the main road is much more severe than the drop on the minor road. This forces traffic to cross the cycleway much slower.Road environment:

44110Photo #44110Cycleway along main road is continuous through a junction. Also, the footway along the side of the road is also continuous - although with different materials. Motor vehicles have to go up and over the footway. This forces traffic to automatically slow down at these junctions but also appears to force the traffic to give way to all traffic along the main road.Road environment:
