      Baden Baden is more like New York, New York, though

          Apologies if this has already been posted, but I just came across it via London Reconnections. Not as stylised/elegant as the tube map, but pretty useful, especially the quality distinctions.

            What distinguishes a high from a low quality Cycle Superhighway here?

              It’s really a personal judgement, mostly based on the level of separation and protection on the route. At the moment I colour code the routes as red, orange, and green. The green, the highest quality routes, are really easy to capture. At the other end of the spectrum, red “routes” where there’s just nothing there, those are really easy to capture, too – I try to avoid highlighting those, but sometimes they’re the only way of getting between two points. Everything else is sort of in a bundle in the middle.
              My ideal thing would be for people to come along and rate each section on a 1 to 5 scale, and then just use the average number. That’d be less arbitrary and would be a helpful resource to feed back to TfL and councils.
              NB, the colour coding he's talking about is for the Google Maps overlay.

                From experience the high quality ones appear to be the routes that are a seperate cycles only road running next to the road (or even without a road for Hyde Park) while the low quality ones will just be a painted section of the main road.

                  Yeah. There can be pretty huge differences in quality, even between two things both labelled Cycle Superhighways (or that's how they used to be labelled anyway). It's the difference between this:



                  and this:
