I have to say I am not too impressed. No offence meant. I like that the city is doing anything at all ... but... they're already proven that the wide cycle lane gets used by cars as a parking space
I agree that it does reinforce the view that the cyclist belongs in the gutter. Legally we're allowed the whole lane. Having recently revisited the highway code and written a cycle marshal guide I now know that this is fact, not something that is only true in North America or that I made up in my PRO BIKE BRAIN.
I worry about the misconception cycle lanes give to new cyclists and non-cyclist road users.
