BIKE GOLF And Bike Lanes Explained by BikeBlogger

In this video today, Bikeblogger is going to explain the various types of bike lanes.

So, without further hesitation, let’s welcome BikeBlogger to this very important topic.

Here’s what BikeBlogger has to say about bike lanes!

Nobody is playing golf, so let’s hit the course and bike golf the golf cart paths!

Bicycle facilities! Types of bike lanes! What are they?! Tip of the day!

Bike paths (class 1)

Are shared with pedestrians but separated completely from motor vehicle traffic. This works fine if they go somewhere people want to go.

Bike lanes (class 2)

Give cyclists a false sense of security. A painted stripe on the ground will not protect you from being hit by a driver, but does give cyclists their own space.

Shared lanes (class 3)

Are only painted bicycle symbols on the ground called sharrows. These draw attention but that’s about it.

Protected lanes (class 4)

Called cycle tracks, aim to protect cyclists, but those with parked cars on one side and the street curb on the other can hide cyclists from motorists that sit low in vehicles. They should not be used where turning across the bicycle lane is allowed.

Protected cycling lanes with curbs on both sides or bollards are a safer option than using parked cars to protect cyclists.

Bike cart paths (class 5)

As demonstrated in this video. Sometimes you will encounter a few annoying golf carts.

In conclusion

None of these bikeway facilities inherently address Intersections, which are the most dangerous places on the road for cyclists and one reason learning to drive your bike like your car is so important.

Intersections include road intersections, driveways, highway ramps, and anywhere traffic can cross each other.

In most countries we have three separated systems for traffic flow based on speed: highways, streets, and sidewalks.

Maybe it’s time to add a fourth, for cyclists!
