Enough of these words of praise which might as well come from one of the flyers by the local tourist industry.
But today, a splendid mid October day attracted me more than ever to a quick ride into the Rhine valley, not for a long tour, though. My purose was to take a couple of no longer needed books to be donated in Bonn-Beuel. I wanted to put them into a public reading box located there on the banks of the river.
I had just reached the bicycle lane on the banks of the river near Kennedy bridge, when I saw the following works in operation:
Two workers from the company "City-Design GmbH Verkehrstechnik Köln" were standing on a ladder putting some new extra emblems to an already existing bicycle lane post with three indicators.
As can be seen in this picture, Herr Camp explained how each sign post can be located by its identification lable.
|This sign post (picture above) of the North Rhine Westphalia network of biking lanes reads: "Is the sign post damaged or is it missing? Call toll free (..) Please give the identificationnnumber below when reporting." |
In case you want to check out this network of bicycle lanes in NRW, which is available as yet only in German, as far as I can see, you can go to this site: Radverkehrsnetz NRW
