Bicycle infrastructure

I notice this link from a friend’s twit.

Bicycle friendly infrastructure is one of the three pillar (Education, Infrastructure and Legel framework) advocated by Safe Cycling Task Force. Here is a good example of what is possible for bicycle friendly infrastructure:

Summary:
– Bicycle super highway
– Green wave for cyclists (coordinated traffic light allowing non-stop cycling at 20km/h)
– Everybody on bicycle because it is easier
– Simple and easy to use, the infrastructure is there, where it is needed.
– I can go from A to B extremely fast, without using my car
– priority for bicycle at intersection. e.g. pre-green for bicycle
