This is my thoughts on having dedicated bike lanes (without physical separation) on roads with 2+ lanes in a given direction, particularly downtown.
I've been thinking, that while dedicated bike lanes seem ideal for cyclists, and are seen as a great gift for cyclists, they may often be a bad idea. They're inevitbly to narrow, once you factor in the door zone (if there's parking), gravel/debree on the road, and an appropriate buffer space from drivers.
Apparently it has! Still on the recumbent, but moved to the NW and still working downtown. The Boss has seen fit to provide me with indoor, secured bike parking, so I'm hoping to ride as long as I can this year. Taken a few days off, here and there. Sometimes, I just don't feel it.
Bare with me as I am still trying to figure it all out, that & my computer is heckA slow, it takes a 1/2 hour of editing for 5 mins of video - do I have patience or do I have patience?!!?!?! huh? Huh? yeaaa thass right.
This is my first test & at night with my camera. Oh & my new bike! YESH!
At home I managed to get the wide screen, & than upside down for a whole ride. That was pleasant. & than sideways. Nice. x)
