No Bikes in the Bike Lane

It’s cyclists v. construction on Alaskan Way and by the Stadia in Seattle. Bike lanes to danger, railroad tracks, and misleading signage that puts you onto a overpass that isn’t complete.

No Bikes in Bike Lane

A Hardhat put this sign up after our "conversation" about the Bike Lane to Danger. Before I rode over it, 5 cyclists came the other way. It’s encouraging to have the bike lane on this new overpass and it’s likely a new urban sprint spot that winds up from Royal Brougham, bypassing all the game-day traffic. However in the interim, it’s presenting cyclists with all sorts of hazards.

The issue is that bike advocacy in Seattle has drawn a line in the sand over Stone Way and the Missing Link while everyday, elsewhere in the city, cyclists ride in these conditions.
