"This cycle lane lets you smack both your handlebars and your knuckles into a lamppost at 50 metre intervals. It definitely gives a rhythm to the journey." [The Guardian]

This is reminiscent of the "traffic calming schemes" I've seen on UK roads before. Where most of the US just uses speed bumps to slow people down (only those who care about their suspensions), British towns will actually put an entire curb/chicane out into the road, forcing a two-lane road into a single lane where you're forced to stop and yield until it's clear. Very odd, but seemingly effective. #bicycling
