Another Bike Lane From Hell!
Another example of a stupid bike lane in Prague. Why even bother?
I guess you have to give the city some credit for even trying, but c'mon, people! Jeesh. You can do better than this!
This photo was taken by my cycling buddy Rob in the front of the Billa grocery store on Jugoslávských partyzánů, across the street from Pizzeria Grosseto.
"It caught my eye because the bike lane is new and it is stuck right between the parking strip (people jumping in and out of their cars to go to the cigarette stand in front of Billa) and the single narrow lane of traffic there," Rob says. "Of course, the unplowed snow just makes it all the more exciting!"
This bike lane extends much of the length of Jugoslávských partyzánů, and follows the line of parked cars on the right.
It would be impossible to ride this lane without a constant fear of getting doored every 10 meters or so.
I'd rather take my chances in the road itself, thank you very much, or ride on the sidewalk.
Reminds me of the other ridiculous bike lane in Prague, which I filmed for a YouTube video awhile back.
