Sharrow After All These Years

See this road? It leads to an amazing stretch of road which is an old highway. It has been falling into disrepair for years. The lack of upkeep and the broken promises of a bike path was one reason we moved. This road is now nothing short of treacherous. As a biker, I wish it was closed to speeding  cars using it to circumvent traffic. I wish it would be properly restored and closed to cars. It’s scenic and lovely but it’s one of the worst stretches.

Last week on my commute I noticed a little lone sharrow had been painted. “Bike May Use Full Lane” is on the signage. I nearly fell over. Today, I had to get a picture. Maybe my wish is coming true. I didn’t ride further to see. It would be nice, but I doubt that’s the situation.

More developments later in the week.

I love to ride bikes. I'm a zealot about commuting. I also think that biking can save the world. It's an elegant solution to most of the world's energy problems. I've been a commuter for over a decade, but I also just love the ride.
