Bicycle road "Centre - Berģi"



Riga isn't bicycle-friendliest city in the world (to put it mildly) but there surely has been progress in last ~5 years. One of the main accomplishments is a bicycle road "Centre - Berģi" which goes all the way from city's core to most distant Eastern outskirts (total length of the track: 14 km). To be honest, I'm still not accustomed to use it in centre area but it's really convenient in Teika distric. The track itself has been made in rather good quality and advisedly (apart from few potentially dangerous mistakes like crossing between Skolas and Dzirnavu streets). The worst problems are created by the stupid car drivers who sometimes park their cars exactly on bicycle road.

On the first picture, you see this track on Skolas street, in centre. On the second picture it's some 7 kilometres farther, on Brīvības street, in Teika.

  2. Two great shots. In Rio de Janeiro are being built many bicycle lanes. It's a great alternative to reduce the excess cars and also for leisure and sport.

    Greetings from Roberto, Rio de Janeiro.
