Technically, I think the bike lane here is considered part of the Minuteman, which swerves right at the upcoming corner. Bikes going straight on Mass. Ave. are supposed to go left of the turn lane (see sharrow).

one of my favorite road crossings. sometimes the lights are in my favor. almost never disappoints for some whacky fun. note the left hand signal for turning right toward the end

Going the other direction, the cyclists, joggers and scooterers filtering around Uncle Sam can be quite entertaining.
