Fun (not) at 8:50 a.m. approaching my least favorite intersection this morning. Trucks blocking this bike lane are nothing new, but they’re usually a couple blocks earlier, where the road is wider, for beer deliveries to Fremont Dock. This truck was so long it’s body backed to the opening of the parking garage. A pedestrian popped out into the street to get around just after the car went by.
We headed the other direction 20 minutes later and it was still there–but now it was creating a backup.
Come 12:50 it was gone! It had moved up the block (where it fit in the parking lane just fine!) to make room for this shorter truck:
Just up the street the bike sign had been struck and bent. I’m not pointing any fingers, mind you.
Today wasn’t all blocked lanes and bent signs. We listened to a lovely cellist outside PCC Natural Market. The empty sidewalk bike rack made a great perch for my four-year old.
