Winter bike lanes
City of Ottawa created several new bike lanes this fall. Lyon and Percy streets both have sharrows painted on the lanes that clearly identify them. Well, unless it snows. Then you can't see them because the city will not plow the bike lane. As you can see in the photo, the car lanes are scraped clear of snow. The bike lane is a rutted icy mess. I am surprised at the number of cyclists I am still seeing so far this winter but wonder how long these hardy souls can continue if the bike lanes are unmaintained.
