We, here in NYC have some bike lanes where the parked cars are between the bike lane and the curb, thus the bike lane is sandwiched between the traffic and parked cars. In theory, this sounds good.

Now I am a fairly comfortable cyclist on country roads, town roads, etc. Cars passing usually don’t get me riled up. However, the claustrophobic feeling I had riding along a patch of road in this type of bike lane is unexplainable! I could not foresee how I would be able to avoid any car who happened to be too close in the road, or a door opening from a parked car, or even a parked car that pulls out to the traffic lane. I simply would have no where to go! On the town roads there are curbs and sidewalks, or lawns, or ditches, or even woods. All more desirable than hitting a car.

My anxiety became so great that I had to stop my bike, and go to the sidewalk and walk to my destination. I took the subway back to a point where the roads were more pleasurable to ride.

Not likely to ride in NYC again.

Some cars simply ignore the bike lanes and drive in them and sometimes bikers have to weave out of the bike lane and into traffic. If everyone follows the rules and stays aware of whats going on around them they work fine, but often times people are distracted, and sadly that’s when accidents happen.
