Those who commute to the Forum on two wheels will probably have already experienced the improvements to the bike lanes from George IV Bridge to King’s Buildings. I noticed that council’s announcement about this “Quality Bike Corridor” and this article in The Times were both illustrated by pictures with the Forum as a backdrop – quite a dramatic one in the The Times. The council’s photo also features in the interesting analysis by Spokes of the possible effect of the improvements on cycle commuting numbers.
Update: the Quality Bike Corridor has been disucussed on the CityCyclingEdinburgh Forum. A fair summary of the conclusion comes from this quote from “cc” (who he?):
Overall it’s positive. It’s just several orders of magnitude less positive than it could have been.
