DC had a ribbon cutting ceremony on the completed Adams Morgan streetscape and much of the media reported the same things, except DCist which complained about the bike racks.
Most news outlets wrote about all the new amenities, including new bike lanes. The problem is, there are no bike lanes. There are sharrows. Now I know the average person on the street (see what I did there) may not know the difference, but there is a difference.
I really wish they'd put the sharrows in the cener of the lane. The lanes here aren't wide enough to require riding to the right, and if I ride in the center of the sharrows, there isn't room for a car to pass, so I don't really know what the point is. I can hear cyclists being honked at from here.
Going north from Florida Avenue the sharrows actually "suggest" that you move over to the right after a bus bulb, wand then moving to the left again once the parked cars get in the way. Most experts don't recommend that you do this and that instead you "maintain your line." I hate to ask them to grind this sharrow out, but they should really grind this sharrow out and replace it.
DCist meanwhile complains about the bike racks. I've used these neighborhood branded ones often and I don't have any problem with them. Maybe I'm not drunk enough. I bet they work a lot better outside of bar districts.
