Green Lanes à la Cycle Chic Sunday's from Eva Lu on Vimeo.
[p.s. i couldn't figure out the new iMovie .. so sorry for the janky quality of the clip!]
Bicycle advocacy & info site BikeLongBeach.org explains the Green Lanes as
"... to raise motorists' and cyclists' awareness that the right hand lane should be shared by both cars and bicycles...There is not room to install a painted bike lane on 2nd Street, and motorists as well as cyclists are often not aware that the right traffic lane should be shared. This treatment is designed to raise and reinforce that awareness."
Sure enough .. motorists obey the 'Share the Road' rule to a T. It was almost as Moses had parted the sea right infront of our brigade. While car behind us switched over to the left lane. It was by far the more pleasant stretch of road we covered that day.
