The current, incomplete set of painted bike lanes on our roads is next to useless. They are too narrow, they often disappear at intersections and are routinely ignored by motorists.

Instead, what we need are wide raised lanes on each of the main thoroughfares: Morphett, King William, Pulteney, Grenfell, Wakefield and Angas Streets as well as North Terrace.

Wide lanes give cyclists the room they need and making them raised properly separates them from cars keeping both motorists and cyclists happy. It is the only way to increase cyclist numbers - that is: everyday people, dressed normally on normal bikes.
