With cycle tracks having all kinds of big green areas, some parallel to the street and some perpendicular to it, the orientation of the bike symbol needs to be less ambiguous. When I encounter a biker symbol on the pavement that's oriented "crossways" - the head further from me and the wheels closer to me - my instinct is to think I should be riding over it crossways -- e.g. left to right if the biker is facing left. But in fact you're meant to ride forward over such a symbol, riding from the figure's feet towards his head. Unless the symbol is accompanied by arrows, it's confusing!
