The first bike lanes in Rīga, Latvia have received much complains from both drivers and cyclists. Drivers complain about the congestion caused and about cyclists which don't seem to use the new lane very much. While cyclists don't like the in-places bumpy tarmac and the water drainage system which doesn't work properly (i.e. they would have wanted the whole street repaved).



But actually very recently the small town of Madona (7 635 inhabitants) beat the capital as the first city to make proper bike lanes:



Much better than the ones of the capital. Although they could do with some more signage (maybe just at the time the photo was taken the road wasn't fully finished yet).

This is a famous bicycle lane across the Ross Barnett Reservoir in Ridgeland, Mississippi. One of the better and few paths in the state.

A map of Ventspils (population: 40 000) bicycle paths

While Ventspils has 18 times smaller population than the capital city Rīga, it has only 8 km less cycle paths - a network 45 km long!



And it's one of the rare networks where there are actual bicycle crossings - usually the local councils just put a zebra crossing which by law means that cyclists must dismount before crossing. One drawback of the network is that these paths are paved using paving stones, not asphalt. But that is for visual reasons - almost all streets in Ventspils' center and residential areas are entirely made up of paving stones, not asphalt.

Took some pictures around Minneapolis yesterday on my big bike ride. Only went on one of our 3 bike/walk bridges over the Mississippi.

Perhaps the most pointless bike path in history.
It is 85m long, starts at a fence and ends with a fence so it's actually impossible to use it for anything. And it's not straight so bicycle drag race would also be impossible. Utterly pointless.

I read that it really is a tiny part of a (recreational) cyclepath around the island (to the high-rises in the distance). But currently I don't see when that could happen. And I doubt that UNESCO will allow changing of the historic street surface on a kilometer of the route to a one that's friendly for any kind of transportation - walking, biking or driving.

In town where i live we have no bicikle lanes,but the reason for not having them is because my town is small.The closest bicikle lane is 15 km away from my house and once when i have time i'll make pictures of them.

Ljubljana's newest additions to its cycle bicycle lanes network. They feature a new-more sleek design. The city's traffic policy is based heavily on increasing the cyclists share and is showing some good results. Also a bicycle sharing system is ever expanding, but the city still lacks some good parking (covered and safe) parking spaces and some stretches of the lanes are still missing or are in poor condition and in winter the streets still have priority with plowing.



On the lower level, the space is reserved for pedestrians and bicycles only.

In Cairns (Queensland Australia) most streets and roads throughout the city and suburbs have bicycle lanes.

Most bike lanes are similar to this pictured below - photo by me.

If you want adventure, ride across this soon to be demolished bridge:

The open grid steel deck makes the draw span a lot lighter in weight.

The bridge is in the process of being replaced with one based on Dutch design.

Minneapolis is getting 43 miles of protective bike lanes by 2020.. Hopefully.

Usually we can get this stuff done plus a bit more.

This is really the shortest and best summary. I'll se what I can dig up in terms of sketches. I know that the North Minneapolis Greenway will get off the ground next year but that won't be considered part of the now 55 miles of protected bikeways. That'll be considered trail. Also the South Minneapolis Greenway will be coming out of the woodwork soon. South Minneapolis' Greenway would be around 5 miles connecting downtown to the current Grand Rounds trail. I'm not sure about the mileage of the North Greenway but I did find some concept of it.
