...Call me a bitch, what sane person decided, at each junction onto Fitzroy St, to place a small GIVE WAY sign for cyclists to yeild at?
So not only have cyclist been given less, but more expensive, road to ride on, but forced them to not be able use the road as other road users can.
I'd be interested in other users thoughts.

I hope this isn't a trend, because I don't fancy bike lanes being used as a way to "keep us off the roads" and enforce the rights of cars over bikes.
