Technically, I think the bike lane here is considered part of the Minuteman, which swerves right at the upcoming corner. Bikes going straight on Mass. Ave. are supposed to go left of the turn lane...

It's Arlington, MA where the Minuteman crosses Mass. Ave. He's about to visit Uncle Sam.

There can be an incredible number of cyclists at those crossings.

I just flatted out a front tube on one of those in Tyngsboro! You really can't see they're in sideways until you're practically on top of them.

I think the "going out is unpredictable" is nonsense, and I do it a lot. I always check that the traffic lane is clear BEFORE I do it, and I signal the lane shift as well on the very, very slight...

Again, you are obviously unaware of a lot of places where the lanes are extremely popular among cyclists. You have your weird political agenda, but I won't grant you that anything you say in that...

I've actually found that helpful in Boston--it seems to condition the drivers to expecting bikes in the lane on relatively busy and narrow streets. Boston is kind of a special case, though, seeing...

Where is that? I've ridden that trail several times and I don't think it ever is a lane on the road, but it crosses in a couple places. Is the sign for the sidewalk-looking pavement?

I have never ridden in NYC, but what you're saying is consistent with what a lot of people say about riding there in this era. I think that's a fair point about the statistics not reflecting the rise...

Anger at cyclists who are riding in the lane legally is a "negative idea." Most of us on the thread have probably had to deal with various forms of harassment and assault from people with that...

That's very sensible, I'd probably do the same. It's not a reason to condemn the use of bike lanes generally.

Also, I lived on a street that cyclists generally avoided, extremely hard to avoid...

I can top that even though I wasn't on a tandem. Not only was it illegal where the guy yelled it to me, there also wasn't a sidewalk to ride on.

Depends on the lane, some are better than being in traffic, others not so much. Still others are just out-and-out unrideable.
