It’s a sick day here at Seattle Bike Blog HQ. So here’s a video from 2008 to discuss (posted to YouTube by schr0559):
What I find fascinating about this video is that there are almost no bicycle features or facilities anywhere on this trip. 2008 was only a couple years ago, but look how far we have (or have not) come.
Mostly, look how different the roads look without sharrows. We all like to talk a lot of smack on sharrows because, true, they often seem useless or as a cop-out for streets that need more ambitious bicycle safety solutions. But they do change the feel of the roads.
Notice anything else interesting in the video? Post your thoughts in the comments.
