@mykunter: No automobile driver cares for cyclists on cycling lanes, and neither do pedestrians, so unless you use your bike as a slow wheelchair, you can't ride safely on cycling lanes.
Usually, if I ride a quarter of an hour on cycling lanes, I have to evade two cars. If I ride on the road I have no problems.
Besides that, most cycling lanes are unusable because of parking cars, trashcans, plants surprisingly growing in Spring and Summer, heaps of leaves in the Autumn, and snow in the winter.
