Cycling in Berlin


I don’t think I’ve posted since my return from Berlin on Wednesday night. I noticed on this trip (there was a 20 minute walk from the hotel to the workshop venue) that they don’t share our phobia of cyclists on pavements. Indeed they draw a line down many pavements and share the space quite amiably. On the first morning we were wallking down the cycling section and a cyclist behind us waited patiently for us to notice and make way.

Some streets had the cyclists going one way on the pavement and the other on the road (both via dedicated cycling lanes). This allowed for best allocation of all available space between cycle, foot and tyre. Why can’t London and Surrey be more like Berlin?
