    Guest Post: On-road cycle lanes2

    Here’s a guest post from Darren who’s been thinking about his regular commute: There’s an ongoing debate around the world regarding delineation of modes: Separate different types and speeds of travellers (think: footpaths, separated cycleways, medians, rail corridors, with signal-controlled intersections where they intersect)  Mixing all travellers together (think: shared spaces, slow neighbourhood streets, Cashel

    Cycling in Los Angeles0

    So, as mentioned a couple of weeks back, I recently visited Los Angeles briefly on my return from Washington DC. Instead of the usual rapid stopover at the airport, I took the opportunity for a 24-hour stay to have a quick look around some parts of the “City of Angels”. Given that this is an
