Having cycled in the Netherlands we know the dedicated infrastructure over there isn't always quite as wonderful as some in the UK like to believe. However, this floating cycle roundabout, the Hovenring at Eindhoven, certainly qualifies. Photo via @jpaudouy. Did you know, by the way, that cyclists in the Netherlands can be fined €50 for riding without lights, and another €35 for not having proper reflectors? The authorities kicked off a new awareness campaign this week.
