No Cycle Lane? Rome Cyclists Show How to Paint Your Own
These Italian cycling campaigners were so fed up with the bad infrastructure that they did it themselves
Cyclists in Rome have become so sick and tired of there not being a cycle lane where it is needed that they’ve taken matters into their own hands with some stencils, paint brushes and hard work!
According to Italian newspaper La Republica, it took around a dozencampaigners 45 minutes to create the cycle path in a tunnel connecting Esquilino and San Lorenzo. It cost about €140 in materials.
The group of activists published an open letter to Rome’s mayor Ignazio Marino, calling for a permanent cycle path to be placed there.
