A Cyclists' Dream

     Today is a cloudy, cool day, but that didn't stop me from getting pictures of the now official bike lanes! I only had enough time to get pictures of the Northside routes, but I will try to get the Southside done sometime in the near future. I started off from a disclosed location, and headed over Brookside Drive to check out what was going on. It turns out, they finally erected signs, designating a bicycle lane. The bike lane on Brookside (that has a nice ring to it), starts after the Douglas Ave intersection. If you see cities like Moncton, their bike lanes go straight through an intersection, where as in Fredericton, they stop short 50 metres.

Sunset Drive bicycle lane. It seems like the diamond and bicycle are giant stickers?
