Infrastructure to support the cycle network includes wayfinding signs, lighting, and end of trip facilities, such as cycle parking and features that can enhance the journey.


Appropriate lighting is important infrastructure to support cycling. Cycling planning needs to consider the effect of lighting on illuminating a route, creating a feeling of safety for people cycling and contributing to road safety.

These issues are discussed in more detail under the Cycle facility lighting section.


Wayfinding helps people to orientate themselves and find their way around an environment. Clear wayfinding for people on bikes is important in promoting facilities and making them user friendly. Wayfinding can include directional signs, route information signs, and network maps.

See the Wayfinding section for detail.
