Funny how you take all the great cycling facilities for granted and never actually think about how great they are… Untill you see a little clip like this and see that it sure is not the case everywhere…

Not sure I like separate bike lanes, as it then gives the legislators more initiative to ban bikes from more roadways. But at least this bike lane is safer than the crap in Montreal that people keep referencing. Where there is no buffer between bike lanes and parking zones. I have witnessed passenger side doors fully open and the commotion it causes in the bike lane can be harmful to cyclists. I find it safer to ride in Montreal with the cars on non-bike lane’d streets. I hope that the Vancouver one does not turn out like the Montreal one, a place to run red lights with impunity. It is almost like everyone in a bike lane becomes a bike messenger. As Pogo said, “we have met the enemy and he is us”, that is how I feel cycling in bike lanes.
