I know that cycle lanes in this country are universally crap and their crapness has been extensively documented, but there's something special about this one. I don't know what exactly, maybe it's just the sheer pointlessness of it all, with the sign and the give way so that pedestrians can walk from a wall into a road. Maybe it's the white van completely obscuring it for good measure. It seems to be pretty much everything that's wrong with cycle lanes in this country. If only it were just 10 yards long and eight inches wide, it would be perfect.
