Nice touches for bicycling

I wouldn't want to give the impression that the Transportation Nag does nothing but complain. The Nag also notices with delight that there is evidence bikes and public transportation are being taken seriously and integrated into the life of our cities. For example, look at this beautiful sign! A major public utilities project in my neighborhood blocked a section of a designated bike route (not even a separate bike lane, just a marked route) - and somebody thought to give bicyclists a detour sign!

Or look at this - a sign warning that bikes will need to merge with traffic when a bike lane ends suddenly. I always wondered what was supposed to happen - am I supposed to disappear along with the bike lane? Or fly?

Just little signs that bicycles are expected and welcome. Nice to see.
