Dutch-style bike lane pilot in London

Believe it or not, London is actually piloting what seems to be a decent Dutch-style *segregated cycle-lane* complete with genuine *bus-stop bypasses* (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEoer6Erh1o&feature=youtu.be).

This is a monumental step forward in protecting people on bikes and a truly positive sign the Britain might be starting to take cycling infrastructure seriously. The author of the article rightly points out that the steep curb angle could cause problems (and that sloped curbs would be preferable), but the fact that this sort of thing is actually being built is something worth celebrating.

Let’s hope it’s the first of many, eh?
