    There's a slow lane. And a fast lane. But what about the bike path paceline lane?

    Don't forget bunny hopping over all the sleeping homeless and dodging abandoned shopping carts.

    I hear Kevlar tires will give you a fighting chance against discarded syringes.

    I'd rather cities work more on the traditional cycle path network first. Many cities still have numerous "can't get there from here" problems where there is no safe cycling route from one spot in the city to another.

    One thing I would support is adding a cycle only lane with barriers on MUTs to segregate cyclists moving quickly from people walking dogs, kids on tricycles, etc.

    Seems like the lanes are reversed. Shouldn't the fast/passing lane be on the left?

    Looks kind of narrow. And I'm afraid of heights, so I'd never ride on that thing.

    just out of curiosity, where is it?

    If Mexico won’t build us a wall maybe they would be willing to pay for a mini loop.

    In China maybe? If so, they have more ways to control the homeless population than we do here in the US.

    Not suspended but they do have a separate lane of MUT for bicycles / roller blades and a separate for walkers / joggers along the coast line in LA. They even have signs indicating the two.

    This is very ideal, but I will regret losing the scenery on the road
