The mayor of Toronto has said there is no point to build bike lanes because
"I can’t support bike lanes. How many people are riding outside today? We
don’t live in Florida. We don’t have 12 months a year to ride on the bikes."
Oh yeah? In that case, I live in the Very, very Northern Florida!

Bikes are like water
T-intersection of two bikeways. Shortcuts to the right.
This is what you see often: pedestrians and cyclists make their own paths. More often when the ground is dry so the shoes do not get wet and dirty (parts of Oulu is built on swamp) or if there is not a lot of snow. Pedestrians save a few steps by taking a short cut. Cyclists do not have to make such a tight turn if they take the shortcut.
I think even the tracks going left of the traffic sign are taking a little shortcut, ie. they are not on top of the pavement.
