|Pedaling past congested cars on Carrera 11's bike lane.|
|Rush hour on the bike lane.|
The 18-block stretch between calles 82 and 100 are wide, clear and smooth: great for cyclists' self-esteem - particularly when one is sailing past cars jammed against each other. Perhaps the sight of us free and fast cyclists will persuade a few drivers to emerge from their steel cans.
|But even on the bike lane, cars cause problems. Here, waiting for a traffic jam to clear.|
|South of Calle 82, riding around a car |
stopped across the sidewalk bike lane.
|Sidewalk riding can be crowded.|
|A ´puddle and broken pavement.|
|Amphibious cyclilng, anyone?|
