…or is 1st avenue still a little strange on a bike? The street changes have been around for a while now, but I can’t seem to enjoy riding between parked cars and the curb. Most people are conscious getting out of the drivers side (well, some people are). But most individuals aren’t exactly aware of bikers from the passenger side. The first time I was riding down this stretch, 2 doors almost clipped me. And if you’ve ever been down here, you know there isn’t much swerving room.
*Sidenote* While I was taking this picture, another group of bikers were behind me complaining about the new set up. One of them explained to me that she was actually pushed by a car who tried to drive in the bike lane.
Maybe it will take people a little longer to get used to–but for now I’ll detour it.
