Has anyone ever given this a go? Any tips?I know the streets close at 7AM and the para-runners start at 7:20. Figure I might try to hop on the course near the start at 6:55 and see how far I can get…Continue

"Sounds like you "take the lane" slyly with cager traffic, not even bothering to pull on opening passenger doors or adjust mirros from Uber's or stop to take photos of sheeple parked in the lane."

"I have no study to present but it's my opinion that if sharrows don't work it has more to do with enforcement than anything. If motorists were ticketed for crowding cyclists and cyclists were treated by the police as vehicles entitled to…"

"I gotta agree with CLP in that I'm not a fan of bike lanes. In stead of bike lanes all lanes should be treated as sharrows. Cyclists should be treated as the vehicles that we are and motorists should be ticketed for not giving us our three…"
