Bicycling Infrastructure ~ Delightful Solutions!

What are some of the essential -- and even delightful -- elements of well-designed bicycling infrastructure? Here's a few! Starting with separate and competently maintained streets, bikeways, and sidewalks... Safe ways for the whole family to cycle... Direct, priority routes, sometimes dedicated to bikes only...Irresistable support including this escalatoramp... Bicycle-friendly trains and mass transit... Sometimes subtle details, like this "hold on" at the stop... Visible, well-located, easy places to rent from... Bikedispenser used in Netherlands at trainstations...Forgiving curbs between bicyclists and pedestrians...Appropriate urban accessories, like trashcans...Special thanks to Velo Mondial, Hembrow's View, and Copenhagenize for these!
