Bulgaria: Sofia To Have 100 km New Bike Paths Photo: www.velobg.org

Bulgaria's capital Sofia will have 100 km of new bike paths by the end of 2015. 

Thus the city will have a total of 140 km of bike paths. 

The new facilities will be built along the renovated main boulevards, as a part of the city hall's policy to encourage bicycle transport. 

Currently Sofia is far from bicycle friendly and sometimes outright dangerous. The existing bicycle infrastructure is patchy, the automobile traffic is intensive and drivers and pedestrians are often  intolerant. Many of the existing bike paths are crossing large intersections via nearly bicycle inaccessible underpasses and large portions of the city don't have bike path connections to the center.

Cycle paths are fantastic if used correctly, but unfortunately in my experience of Burgas, they're just additional pavement for automobiles to park upon and block or, just another piece of pavement for families with pushchairs to stroll in.
