Is this the world’s shortest cycle lane?

Bikelane

I took a little stroll through Bloomsbury this afternoon and came across this cycle lane running off Red Lion Square.  Is it not the shortest cycle lane you’ve ever seen? Why do they bother?

  1. Mike, I’m not sure… I don’t think it’s a one-way street but I’d need to go back to double-check.
    Revrunner, these things are all over London. They never fail to amuse me.

  2. Dave, you’re right, but I think it lulls cyclists into a false sense of security, because they’ve got to merge in with the traffic again — and some won’t take the due consideration needed.

  3. Umm, it is pretty clear from the picture that this is (at least at this end of the street) a one-way street. So rather than laughing at it, you should be happy that you have a protected entry to a street where cyclists are allowed to go two-way. I think it’s neat.
