We discussed a bike lane only on one side of a two way street at our last bike/ped meeting and came to the conclusion that it is OK if we are talking about a climbing lane otherwise it encourages wrong way use.

There are a lot of different studies out there that uses different methodologies to reach conclusions so it is hard to say how significant wrong way riding is but here is one study that shows wrong way cyclists being over represented in crashes: http://www.baltimorespokes.org/artic...90412051502142
