I was wondering about that the last time I rode in Texas. Man, it was like I was a rodeo clown dodging the bulls...

You are from Colorado, that puts you into the "heifer" category. The bull analogy was right on though.

Extra points if you can jump on them from your pickup truck and stay for 8 seconds.

That's not that bad. There's plentiful margin to ride on still, and it's so near the beginning of the bike lane that no swerving is necessary. Just keep riding straight ahead until past the moveable sign before easing into the bike lane.

Sign placement courtesy of VC zealot hoping to get cyclists out of the bike lane.
