Only in Egypt! :)

Only in Egypt! :)

In a second attempt to encourage cycling culture in Egyptian streets, Egypt has introduced bike lanes as an attempt to develop a cycling infrastructure.

Social media users have spotted bike lanes in Cairo cities of Maadi and Sheikh Zayed accompanied by a number of safety road signs, but the work is still in progress.

However, they were used as parking spots.

Bike lanes are not newly introduced to Cairo. In 2015, bike lanes were spotted in Maadi. However, they were also used as parking spots.

Sir,

When you realise that getting on a bike and cycling down any road in Egypt - even in a cycle lane - is the equivalent of swallowing a bucketful of cyanide , turning on the gas and putting your head in the oven , whilst simultaneously licking a live electric cable....then you can applaud the use of cycle lanes as parking spaces. It will save countless lives by giving cars a safe place to park.

Their preferred choice is often road junctions, roundabouts, traffic lights....and, speaking personally, the exit to the pathway to my villa :vs

I'm all for the removal of cycle lanes and their official re-designation as parking spaces.

Yours,

A D Mailreader

Copenhagen's Bicycle Life
If the thought of experiencing a capital city on two wheels scares you, Copenhagen will soon change your mind. The city is built for cyclists and you’ll see more bikes than cars in the city centre. A third of Copenhageners commute to work by bicycle and it’s not unusual to see people in suits, heels and skirts effortlessly pedalling past.

So....we just have to uproot Cairo and move it to Copenhagen....or transform the mentality of Egyptians into that of Danes.

Why didn't I think of that? :tk
