commented on The New Separated Bike Track Is Good for Cyclists and Drivers
I've been a bicycle commuter in this city for six years and I seriously need someone to explain to me how the fuck you're supposed to turn right while southbound on this thing.
Wait, before we even get to that, how are you supposed to enter it? I'm southbound on Broadway and I cross Denny, the track starts over on the other side of the street with no facilities to transition over there. Am I supposed to just swing across oncoming traffic and into it? Do they expect to stop at the goddamn crosswalk or something?
Okay, now I'm in the cycle-track. Woooooooooooo! Whoop, but now I need to turn right onto Pine. Wait, am I supposed to stop in the middle of the track, blocking other cyclists, and wait for the crosswalk light? WTF?
I may be a cycle-track noob, but this seems dumb to me. Give me back my Broadway without the tracks in it.
