An interesting guide/inquiry into designing roads and paths, creating environments and societies, and so on, for safer cycling.

I'm still reading it so nothing more on it from me as yet.
I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.

The Five Design principles for Cycling Infrastructure (p20) are good, especially point 3:

3. Directness
The factors that influence the travel time for cyclists are brought together in the aspect of directness.
The following design requirements apply to this: Cyclists travel as short a route as possible and are
taken out of their way as little as possible on major routes. Connections ensure that traffic flows as
smoothly as possible and the design speed on main cycle routes is 30 km/h. At intersections with
traffic lights, priority is set in favour of the cycle route.

I don't like the look of the Danish junction treatments (p30-31). The doc won't let me copy the diagrams here, so you'll have to look for yourself, but they seem to involve righting straight ahead in the right-turn lane.
