Segregated Cycle Path in Erlangen

Segregated cycle path in Erlangen
The cycle path merges with the carriageway, but note that a buffer has been created between the cycle lane and the motor traffic using a cobbled strip to discourage drivers from crossing it. This smoothly re-introduces cyclists travelling towards the camera on to the carriageway, so motorists have sight of cyclists before they reach the carriageway lane proper. Both lane and path are clearly delineated in red. Of course it would be better if the segregated cycle path continued East, but at least cyclists have been catered for at the major junction just beyond the Saturn store on the left (junctions being a greater problem for cyclists than riding along the carriageway).
