    Shortest bike lane in the world

    Not sure this would do much good.

    I concede, I thought the 14 ft long one on Mabelvale Pike was short, but this wins.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    I thought many of the bike lanes in the Atlanta area were short (some only one block long ) but the Brits have won with this one.

    What's even worse - is that they spent 2,000 pounds, for $5 worth of paint, and an hour's labor.

    Anybody looking for a good paying job?????

    Reminds of some stupid bank commercial I keep seeing.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    2,000 pounds sounds like a lot for that. Makes me wonder about the accuracy of the reporting. It also doesn't sound to me like they tried very hard to get an official explanation for the short marking.

    I'll agree that it sounds goofy but I'm withholding my final opinion until I hear the other side.

    of course thats not a bike lane in the traditional sense. it's more of a sign saying use bikes, and use them on this side of the road, and cars please keep an eye out for them and don't blow your horn at them because we want to encourage cycling
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting

    Not if you have a folding bike.
