    bicycle road signs project

    seeking amateur photographers who cycle!

    i am putting together a project for which i need pictures of cycling road signs. the project is a fundraiser to get better cycling facilities in my hometown of Halifax, NS, where we currently have terrible cycling infrastructure.

    i am very interested in seeing different kinds of road signage for bicycles from around the world! please please please email me at peterandjessica@eastlink.ca if you have any photos which you would like to share, or if you have any questions about me or the project.

    thank you,
    PeTeR

    It sounds like an interesting project. I'll take some pictures.

    You might want to post your request in the commuting and touring forum. There are plenty of photographers over there

    Some from Italy

    The three circular signs are national signs used throughout Italy. Red outer circle indicates bikes not permitted, blue circle no red stripe indicates roadway dedicated for bicycles ONLY, blue circle with red stripe: roadway for bicycle ends.

    The other 2 signs are used on two dedicated to bikes roadways; one indicates the roadway name and the other is to show distance.

    Peter,

    This is absolutely the only bicycle sign picture I took on my cross canada tour last year. Funny thing is its about 30km outside of halifax (towards truro)! Anyways, best of luck.
