Bike Infrastructure in Bucharest…

Posted on 13. Oct, 2011 by in Video

…or lack thereof, as this video shows, makes cycling in Bucharest, Romania, almost ridiculous.  Bike lanes that are interrupted and blocked by bus stations?  Yep.  Bike lanes that take you down a flight of stairs if you maintain the course?  Yep.  Bike lanes that look and essentially function like sidewalks?  Yep, Bucharest has it all.  This film takes you on a tour of the entirety of the completed bike lanes in Bucharest, and as you can see, the bike infrastructure does not appear to even care about the transportation group for whom it is intended.  However, you can check out the website Optar to learn more about cycling improvements in Bucharest (it is in Romanian, but Google translate did the trick for me).
