The concept is to highlight the new cycle lane to avoid conflicts between slowed down cyclists and agitated pedestrians. With the new development of the Boulevard Magenta, the cycle lanes located on the sidewalk are not clearly identified by the pedestrians. To assure the necessary period of adjustment for both cyclist and pedestrians, we have designed a continuous mark which represents passing bikes. Three white bike tire marks intertwine along the whole length of the lane, stopped only at crossroads.

For the test part, we have created a manual machine with a reservoir of paint and ink pads which print the motif on the track.
