You may have noticed something different if you’ve passed through Bankers Hill in the last week. The City of San Diego just completed its first road diet on Fourth and Fifth. That means they’ve removed a car lane to make way for something else—in this case, a buffered bike lane.
We love fresh paint.
Believe it or not, these daring bicyclists weren’t run over by crazy San Diego drivers after this photo was taken.
We hear that buffered bike lanes like these may not be the best solution for overall safety, but we’re not urban planning experts. At least it’s a big step in the right direction. We’re just glad we’ll finally be able to take out the old Huffy. Look out, Bankers Hill!
