BikeCDA Alert

And now a message from John Kelly of BikeCDA: "Really, no one knows our in-street bike lanes better than the people that use them. BikeCDA is in the process of assessing the condition of our CDA bike lanes. Our goal is not only to assess, but also to bring awareness to a potential problem that exists. According to the AASHTO (design) guide, "The recommended width of a bike lane is 5 feet from the face of a curb to the bike lane stripe." We're asking for your help to find bike lanes within the City that do not meet this mark. We are particularly interested in identifying lanes such as these (2'10") that endanger our cyclists the most. As you find these problem areas, please let us know by e-mail ( or send a message to John Kelly or If you would really like to help protect our bicyclist's in the street, please "share" this so this word gets out. Thank you!"

Question: Do you know any bike lanes that don't meet the 5-foot standard from curb to stripe?
