How Not To Design Bicycle Infrastructure: A Dutch Cyclist Visits London

I love this video prepared contributed to BicycleDutch and complaining about London bicycle infrastructure. Coming from a City where they just tore up major bike lanes to make life easier for cars, I agree with Richard Florida's tweet that these guys should visit Toronto to see how one should NOT do bike infrastructure. On BicycleDutch the film-maker describes it:

It was really interesting to see cycling infrastructure where I’d least expected it and no infrastructure where in my opinion it was most needed. Something can also be said about the design of the infrastructure that was available. To a Dutch eye the tracks and lanes are narrow and it is hard to see where they actually are. Because there is not much difference from the footpath sometimes. There are also a lot of obstacles and the surface is not continuous and not smooth enough.
