They were a group of passionats of cycling going in trip to mountains.^^ What is going on in that picture?
There are bike paths in the center of the city, and in some neibourghoods. Unforunately except on one central boulevard it is ust composed by painted lines on the road or on the sidewalk. And many times drivers use it as parking space, or pedestrians walk on it...And is way less then would be needed in such a big city. The project of the new bike sharing system included some new higher quality bike lanes, but nothing was done so far (except of the bike sharing stations-which are not used yet, even if it was promised to be useble starting in 2013 lol)...And what is the state of the cycling infrastructure in Cluj?
Indeed, the newly build bike paths/lanes are decent, but there are very few of them, considering that they started to use this layout only recently. Vast majority of bike paths is just painted lines on the road/sidewalk. But things are improving.Those pictures of Baia Mara and Bucharest, as well as the first picture of Cluj (from your 3rd post), look pretty decent. Is that the standard for new infrastructure, or is it more like the other pictures (i.e. painted lines on the sidewalk)
