What is a cycle track?

A cycle track is a separated bike lane or exclusive facility for bicyclists that is located within or directly adjacent to the roadway. One of the defining features of a cycle track is that it allows bicyclists to be physically separated from motor vehicle traffic with a vertical element, such as bollards. Cycle tracks are differentiated from standard and buffered bike lanes by the vertical element. They are differentiated from shared use paths (and sidewalks) by their more proximate relationship to the adjacent roadway and the fact that they are bike-only facilities.
