Folks, take a look at this and tell me it doesn't work...

I took a closer look at that side path, and it's really interesting--there's some angling at the intersections apparently to put you in a better position to deal with the right hook issue. It's not quite like anything I see around here--when a path is placed like that one next to the road but many feet over, and doesn't angle you into the corner like that, I feel much less safe riding through the intersection than if I was into the lane on the road.
