    Well that the sign also exists in a version, that does not require a transformation of CYCLISTS!  :-)

    Radschnellweg OWL
    And have you travelled this Radschnellweg already? Any speed limit?

      Thanks for the comment, dear Gypsy!
      The bicycle-fast-way will be not finished before 2016. 

      East Westphalia-Lippe is a rural region. From my view already today there are fast and save possibilities to ride a bicycle between the towns.  :-) 

      However, the towns are problematic! For example, riding a bike in and around Herford is a disaster and perilous. The motor roads to Herford and the new by-pass roads are very well built multi-lanes. However, these roads were closed for cyclists! Existing cycle tracks end at these motor roads! Then riding further or crossing is impossible. Also there are no signs that a used cycle track will end as a dead end. As a local-ignorant cyclist, it is almost impossibly, to find a way through Herford.

      To allow the mobility of cyclists, the form of the cycle tracks in the towns of OWL must change! The cycle tracks in the towns should be formed such, that these by the car drivers are readily identifiable as a travel track. Today the cyclists are led over footpaths with curb stone edges, so that car drivers not notice the difference between a footpath and a cycle track with fast riding cyclists at all. So nearly at every crossroad cyclists are ignored! I am glad every time, that after riding through Herford I'm not in a hospital and still alive. :o)

      Thus very briefly: It is nonsense to build bicycle-fast-ways which end at the town borders!

    ??? :o|
    signs have signification:
    Cyclists, you have to be attentive:
    - you have to ride straight, but the attention - train may be ahead!,
    - but movement to the left for you is prohibited!
    straight and only straight!!!
    :)))

      Yes, dear Lena! :-)
      ..but there is only one small difficulty: I am unable to ride straight ahead by my couch!  :-|
      Because there is no grade crossing, you have to cross the railroad elevation and the railway rails. To do this, you must be a perfectly adroit MTB-rider! ...surely, you are!  :-D

        Yes, I am adroit MTB-rider, because I may brake and to cross railroad on my foots :)))

        ... it is really difficult!!! ... it is the sign on special russian road!!!

          Yes, of course you are adroit! :-) 
          ...but there you may not go by your feet! The blue bike-sign is marking, that the straight ahead way is only allowed for cyclists on bikes! There is no permission for pedestrians to go! 
          On ways with the following sign, you may go by your feet too:
          Zeichen 244

    Radschnellweg Ruhr
    85 km - possible see 8 cities!!!
    (85 km - it is I may :)))
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      That is a planned bicycle-highway! ...but is not ready.  :-| 
      The fast bicycle way is crossing the Ruhr Metropolitan Region. In the Metropolitan Region is nearly so much motor traffic as in Moscow. In a satisfactory manner the bicycle way has no crosses with motor traffic roads. There are overpassings by bridges or undergrade crossing by tunnels.
      ...so you can overtake the motor traffic jam easily!  :o)

      4 years 1 month ago
      ...but I don't like the sign:  Don't ride biker-trials without a helmet!!  :-)
      • Елена Premium user Russia (Private)
        4 years 1 month ago
        ... but I see on a sign - one big monolithic helmet on the the whole body :)))))

          4 years 1 month ago
          Surely the sign shows only a wooden crash-test dummy!  :o) 

          Nevertheless. this sign I like more: 
          Helmets recommended :-)

            Wow!!! Super!!!
            so funny flies forward hands :))))
            Thus I once almost flew at a speed of 20 kmh
            accidentally wheel slid off the road into the longitudinal hole 
            and I fell down,  in front of handlebar of my bike 
            but I felt good because the ground with grass was :))))

    Achtung Elche!
    Elche?
    Sign must be imported from Sweden! Never heard of elche in Germany?

    Re:
    Dear Gypsy, of course, you are right :-)
    My friend Bernd imported the sign from Sweden and positioned it at his home street :-)))


    ****  
    Ah hah! I have heard that these signs are very popular especially with the German tourist.
    Maybe I must get one next time I visit! :-)
