A New Bike Lane

New bike lane, Porta a Mare, Livorno
Many Livornese bicyclists amuse themselves chasing pedestrians on our narrow sidewalks, with the flimsy excuse that there aren't enough bike lanes. Here is a fresh new one at Porta a Mare: maybe they will really use it.

I wish ours were like that.

Wow, good luck following it.

Hope they do use it! Many cyclists are rather rude, at least here in Canada.

Now that's what I call a bike lane! Impressive!

In The Villages, golf car drivers love to chase down pedestrians and bicyclists!

Yikes! Is that really the 'yellow brick road'?

The colour of the pavement certainly stands out!

I'd use it.

Guess it depends on whether you are a cyclist or a pedistrian how you feel about this.

They don't here. They have excuses like there are pedestrians walking on the bike lanes or trash cans have been left there on collection days... Please keep me posted as to whether this beauty is actually used.

It looks like it might be a rubberized material?

Beautiful image, VP !
Looks quite comfortable for cyclists.

Bike lanes are being installed in many streets in both Naples and Hartford, but there is rarely enough space to install a wide lane like that.

Gosh, we have something to learn here up in the north! That looks fantastic!
