Rants on Cycling and on Life:
Photos of people and bicycles that pass in front of my camera
What is interesting about this diagram is that both cyclists are in teh bike lane. Even though the "no" cyclist is in the bike lane he/she is still in danger. Look how wide the car lane is to the right.sigh
I once went on a ride led by a bicycling advocate who was giving a tour of new bike lanes. He told everyone to ride on the outside line. In his view bike lanes are just buffer zones.
I am currently trying very hard to get the city to slow the speed of traffic on my streetafter a certain level of harassment they are doing "a study"since the study is going to take some timeas these things tend to doI asked for a quick fixthat quick fix is a bike lanebutthere is a good deal of bicycle traffic on this streetbutthe door zone makes it a potentially dangerous place to ridemy goal is to create the illusion of a thinner stretch of roadwhich would force the drivers to slow down to feel more comfortablewe will see what happens
That sounds like a great way to slow car traffic. The bike lane would also remind people that your road has bike traffic.
