Then ask the City of Orlando to do something about it.
I finally got down to Primrose with my camera and tape measure. Walking around down there, it’s much worse than I remembered. The usable-pavement width from the center line to the sand or grass is often as little as 11 ft. There are several drain grates encroaching into the bike lane space, one of which is a serious crash hazard (City of Orlando, read: LIABILITY). During the time I was there taking photos, I saw at least 1/2 dozen maximum-width landscape trailers, 2 lynx buses and numerous box trucks. Traffic came in long lines. This is an appropriate road to provide extra space for cyclist comfort (though I would prefer wide lanes vs bike lanes). But its not enough to just lay down some paint, ignore hazardous conditions, collect your BFC award and walk away while the sand and grass take over the space.
Here are some more photos:
Email Charles Brown at the city. Charles is a nice guy. Ask how you can help him encourage the city to fix this bike lane.
