Another accident waiting to happen involves an incredibly narrow bike track running next to a canal.
Yet another badly conceived cycle path is blocked by a bollard, which has bizarrely been built at a design school.
Even more ironically, there is a sign which tells drivers to give cyclists more space while taking up the majority of the bike lane.
Another image features mind-bending carpet that’s bound to make the simple act of ascending the stairs bring on motion sickness.
