I never knew that Mayor Koch decided to give up on bike lanes in New York City; I guess he lost that fight.

I don't live in NYC, but if I did I would not use those bikelanes (there's a video on this link: http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2010/12/21/are-new-yorks-bike-lanes-working).

I'd simply ride in the road or maybe in the bus lane. Any NYC cyclists have any thoughts?

BTW: It's not the turning vehicles that bother me, get the same thing in conventional bikelanes (I just get in line with the traffic to preclude a right-hook). It's all the other obstructions that I couldn't deal with.

Why dont they move the subway above ground and pave the tracks for cyclist.
