Photo #11563

Segregated ( "hybrid") cycle lane.

It's an old facility and at 2.3 m wide it is narrow. However, this is still enough to be able to pass slower cyclists within the lane. It's not that unusual to see three bikes side by side when kids are going to school in this lane at busy times.

While provision like this is pretty much unknown in the UK, note that this style of provision is in the process of being removed in favour of properly segregated paths.

The road here has a 50 km/h speed limit. You almost never find yourself riding on a road with this speed limit.

The other side of the road (where the camper van is parked) there is a service road with a 30 km/h speed limit which doubles as a bidirectional cycle path, so no-one should ever have to make the potentially unsafe maneuver of a left turn from the cycle lane which is the subject of the photo.

Update: I've discovered that this is scheduled to be updated. I expect it will be changed to a proper segregated path as others have been. e.g. this one: #11676. It will probably be changed for either a 2.5 m wide segregated single direction path or a 4 m wide segregated bidirectional path.
