Not just cycle tracks: designing streets for all users

I think the drive for “bicycle lanes” and “bicycle infrastructure” gets more importance than something simpler: all-inclusive street design. Here are some shots from a street in Amsterdam that invites all users to share the same space rather than trying to segregate everyone into discrete groups.

Plenty of parking for everybody.

When you design for everyone, everyone feels comfortable using the space.

Look, no cycle tracks! But a perfectly lovely street for cycling that is not on the bicycle map of Amsterdam.
