Just a few days ago I rode around Lake Merritt and noted the lack of adequate bike lanes on one small section of the ride. The marked bike lane currently ends at the curve at One Lakeside Drive and restarts on Harrison just before Grand Avenue. Imagine my glee when I rode around the lake yesterday and noticed that there are now preliminary markings on the roadway for bike lanes on part of that previously unmarked route. Nice.
FURTHER UPDATE: 18 Jan 2010 | When I walked around the lake on Saturday (Jan. 16) I noticed that the preliminary markings had been made permanent.
