Designing for Inebriated Cyclists

Old Colwyn Promenade has traditionally been used as a quiet and scenic ride to Colwyn Bay. However, when they were designing the stretch of national cycle network route 5 along the prom, they noticed cyclists returning after a night out on the town tended to follow a more weaving line, so designed this cycle lane accordingly.
