The Warrington Cycle Campaign in jolly old England is an effort to encourage safer cycling and generally more cycling. They have compiled a hilarious catalogue of photos called 'Cycling Facility of the Month' from that area that illustrate how poorly designed cycling paths actually are. Accompanied by typical dry British humor, they're definitely worth clicking through.
Beyond the humor factor, I'm not sure what to think. Are English engineers simply *that* bad? (Sorry Damien.)
