Berlin Bike lanes

For a Toronto cyclist, riding through Berlin is in many ways an unexpected experience. The first thing you notice is the vastly superior infrastructure. Bike lanes physically separated from roads.


traffic lights turn green for bikes a few seconds before car signals, so bikes can get away first


and if someone does block a bike lane, the sidewalks are wide enough, and their relation to the parking area is such that you veer onto the sidewalk and not the street.
