Birmingham Cycle Map

It's been a hectic week or so at work, but on Tuesday managed to pop into the City centre for the launch of the Birmingham Cycle/Walking map. The weather was awful: as soon as I got out of the house and onto my bike the heavens opened. Unfortunately this put a dampener on the launch as a "commuters breakfast".
The map is a great piece of work, its taken a long time to achieve, but well worth it. Its also nice to know that you've had some impact on the map through its drafting, and "road" testing bits of it. You can request a copy through cycling@birmingham.gov.uk
The BBC is currently running with some "funny" photos of cycle lane madness. I've never come across anything like these in Birmingham. Although I'v always wondered what the speed limit is on a cycle lane shared pavement...

Do you think there is scope for a deal that would make both cyclists and motorists happier - fewer cycle lanes but those few being of decent quality.

And would the planning guidelines permit such a deal?
