"Hybrid" cycle path in Groningen. This is a low quality cycle path for the Netherlands, it is old and only still exists in quite short lengths, as you'll see by playing the associated video which shows how junctions are dealt with. Also look at the Google Maps or (better) Live Maps birds-eye image for this location. It shows that the reason this works at this location is that there is an access road behind those trees on the right. This is not a situation which exists in the UK, and these cycle paths, while they work well enough here, are not the panacea that they are being made out to be for the UK by some people.

If you want to copy what is good about the Dutch cycle path network, copy the good Dutch cycle paths, not the old ones like this which are gradually being replaced.
