While commuting home (via car) the other day, I was waiting at a light and glanced at the Bike Lane sign. I then did a double glance and realized it didn’t say ‘Bike’ but had been altered (ohh you pesky urban artists!) to ‘Gunk’ lane. I then held up traffic to get a picture with my mobile device.
But while driving on, I started to think about it – the bike lane is often a ‘gunk’ lane. Cluttered with debris, car parts, dead animals and other refuse (or ‘offal’, which seems to be a word of the day for me). In fact, there are some streets where I would rather ride IN THE ROAD than in the designated bike lane (gunk lane) due to the debris (gunk?) scattered everywhere.
What is one of the weirdest things you’ve seen in a bike lane?
