Guatemalan Cycling Infrastrucre

Bike Path
Bike paths are popping up everywhere here in Guatemala.

I firmly believe that the people who have come out with these bike path designs have never ridden a road bike.
Forget about the improper access ramps (on or off the path) or the lack signage to adopt the paths, or the design not optimizing cruising speed, forget that at some locations, to get access to the path you have to uncleat*, get off your bike, step up the path, pull up your bike and get back on. forget about all that! Now we have speed bumps on them, and one of them every 80 meters on this bike path. Great!
