20130621 bike-lanes-market-10th-overhead

Here's an overhead view of the bent bike lane at Market and 10th, in San Francisco. Eastbound bicyclists are to the left of a right turn-only lane when they cross that intersection, so this bike lane starts away from the curb, then bends back towards it.

 

The trapezoidal area between the bike lane and the curb is going to be a bike share station. The lane to the bike lane's left is supposed to be transit-only, and that blue car clearly did not exit Market at the intersection.

 

Westbound bicyclists have a simpler bike lane along the curb, as seen at the top of the photo.

 

Some dumb blog with low-grade snark about bike lanes suggests that the roads will be paved with "rainbows and dreams," which explains the rainbow flag there at the bottom of the photo.
