Irish Cycle Facility of the Week

February 3, 2014:


A two-way segregated section of the National Cycle Route 9 in Belfast was lacking something, so the powers that be had to fix that.  The above photo shows the feature installed last week — it’s a modern art installation. It’s likely installed for the Giro d’Italia, which is to be routed along this road in May — an artwork plonked in the cycle path is the perfect way to celebrate cycling!
