Just got back from Seattle and trying not to compare. If RVA became more bike friendly, watch out!

This will be awesome if 1) they create barriers to protect it from cars and 2) they find a way to keep it from being filled with broken glass

It’s a good start but it ends shortly past this photo and is not on the other side. I can only hope that it’s still under construction and that it’s not a half-assed effort. Unfortunately, I have my doubts…

@4 Awesome-ness takes a bit of time (and patience); there is certainly no elfin magic going on in RVA – fully constructed lanes do not just appear. As is, it is already better than it was this morning when I was driving to work.

Adding to #3 Gordo’s “if” list:

3) They can convince cyclists to travel in the direction of traffic (these lane can not facilitate bi-directional bike traffic) – “salmoning” will be an issue to address.

@5 This was supposed to have been done a year + ago. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great improvement and I’ll use it. I hope they don’t lose momentum and quit half way. It’s happened before.

I am not familiar with the rules / laws covering bike lanes, I just always give right of way.

Is there someone who is knowledgable and would be willing to post the basics? Or maybe post a web site?

From everything I have read and seen, there is definately a group in city hall with good intentions towards cyclist…Unfortunately, they have to fight for every penny spent.

That’s the police getting a head start on drawing out the chalk lines for any cyclist brave enough to try crossing.

#7, a buffered bike lane like this is intended to give bicyclists their own lane without interference from cars. The buffer visually distinguishes the bike lane from the car travel lane. Protected bike lanes have a physical vertical barrier of some sort, like bollards. We don’t have those in Richmond…yet. Protected bike lanes provide additional protection for cyclists from cars. If you have additional questions, please feel free to ask. FYI, RideRichmond is holding a Traffic Skills 101 course this Saturday. Details here: http://www.riderichmond.net/2014/08/traffic-skills-101-class-announced-for-september/ We would welcome participants who are interested in learning how to be a safer and more… Read more »
