That's amusing. I was thinking it looked like a nice road for riding because of the narrow lane and the median. I'd feel justified in taking the lane aggressively, especially because it's clear that cars couldn't drive very much faster if I weren't there. I'd stay well to the left, away from the parked cars and would have no worries about oncoming traffic or turning cars, as the median is in the way.
