This book is very enjoyable with a great price tag.

It would make a perfect stocking filler for the cyclists in your family.

Illustrates how our taxes are wasted on moronic designs, but that's a different issue (try the politics section of Amazon)!

The only thing I didn't really like is the attempted "sentencing" for the designers, such as "asbo", "regime change" and "tag and curfew". It just lowers the level of the book, but its only a minor gripe.

Format: Hardcover
Very amusing book showing extreme examples of poor cycle facilities.

Sadly if you cycle in British cities regularly you will have come across cycle paths along similar lines where local authority transport departments have not consulted cyclists, tried to save money or added in cycle facilities as an afterthought. This book could be distributed to local authority officials and councillors as an example of what to avoid as it details all the main problems.

Only slight annoying thing about the book is the American spelling used

Format: Hardcover
This book evaluates many cycle farcilities in Britain for safety and ease of use. Facilities featured include lanes 6 inches wide, 10 feet long, blocked by a phone box, ending in the middle of a busy junction, or just have a sign designed to decapitate unwary riders.

On a more serious note, it highlights how poor cycle facilities are in general, and supports the Cycling Defense Fund.

This book is a must for all cyclists and road traffic engineers, and anyone who wants a laugh.

If books like this encourage local authorities to observe the spirit of the law and not just the letter, then it has served its purpose. The satirical approach makes it entertaining as well as informative. All power to the efforts of the compilers to highlight some of the idiocies foisted on them to improve their "safety". I hope all these examples have now been corrected but I expect a sequel "More Crap Cycle Lanes" will appear just before Christmas...

This is an ideal book to keep in the toilet. Everyone who picks it up will be alternately amused and appalled. They will think "are there really any cycle lanes as crap as this near me?" and, if they live in the UK, they will almost certainly discover some. Buy ten copies, and give them to your friends for Christmas.
