What kind of cycling infrastructure do you like and don't like?

I generally like any kind of cycle path that is separated from motorized traffic. Shared lane markings are useful only on quiet roads; otherwise, they are useless.

I don't understand why anybody would travel by bicycle on a busy road, especially if there's a perfectly good cycle path available to them. Why would somebody do that?

Cager here, I would love for you fags to have separate designated cycling streets and bike paths in every city so I don't have to deal with or even see you on the road.

>off street paths are the best
No, those are band aids
Bike only (except for service vehicles) streets are the apex of cycle infrastructure

Buffered or separated. Both are pretty darn nice, also signed routes tend to have barely any cars on them in my experience so I enjoy them as well.

Anything where I don't have to deal with cagers really.

The best kind of infrastructure is a street that works for all users without any special accomodations (except wayfinding/route signs, which are a nice convenience if they can be done). After that, off-street, separated, and buffered lanes are the best, in that order, because they're the most inclusive kinds of infrastructure that allow cyclists of all ability levels. Painted lanes and sharrows are the worst, because they do practically nothing to encourage timid/slow riders and can actually create new problems by confusing drivers.

Where I live at least, the cycle paths are very nice - but there aren't very many of them, and even when there is an off-street path it takes a meandering route and adds a lot of distance and time to a trip compared to a direct on-street route.

I really don't mind any of them. Being able to ride safely with traffic is a skill every cyclist should have.

Pic related - it's a random street from my city that could be practically any residential area outside of the central city in any part of the US that was developed before 1950, and it's perfect for cycling without any kind of special adaptation. Traffic is low, the trees discourage speed (unlike modern suburbs that have lots of setback and open sightlines to make things comfortable for drivers), and it's part of a grid (as opposed to a suburb organized around arterial roads).

Cyclists don't need infrastructure - we need neighborhoods that aren't designed for cars at the expense of all other uses.

I don't like any. All it does it harm me in practice.

I would agree, however, you can't possibly have separated cycle paths which won't cause issue when you actually have to cross or turn or some shit.

>I don't understand why anybody would travel by bicycle on a busy road, especially if there's a perfectly good cycle path available to them. Why would somebody do that?
Biggest reason is how utter shit most bike 'lanes' are.

>>1003364
Bike lanes are the most poorly maintained part of the road, act as a trashcan for McFatties, will stop randomly, have you ride along doorzones,and in the event this is too much bullshit for you and you ride outside the lane, this enrages the McFatties which could literally, not exaggerated, end in my death.


>>1003371
This. I still run into cager problems around town, but it's generally not ever a close-call hitting situation.
More just harassment and trying to scare me, but no lane will prevent that kind of behavior.
