Bike Lane Love

One of our readers sent us this great photo today:

As I was biking to work this morning, I ran across the these newly repainted bike line markers that really made me laugh. They reversed the template before repainting the marker and it now looks like two people hugging on a bike (maybe this was paid for with federal “stimulus” money!)  It reminded me of the slightly-contentious discussion on EcoVelo about electric bicycles — maybe this could be developed into a “let’s all get along” bicyclists logo. —Casey

The next time you see this symbol, be sure to stop and give a fellow bike-lane-user a hug.

    Fantastic picture. Thanks for posting! Hopefully San Francisco is about to paint 80 miles of new bike lanes starting in the fall. This would make a great new logo.

    Left? Right? Progress is stymied. Sign of the times.

    This looks like Inter-Tribal love to me…not sure if this couple can make it…..I am hopeful, but there sure is a lot of bad blood out there… folks actually wanting to see road bikes as metal pretzels, all sorts of derision towards the racers…..sad, but true…..I’m for all of the tribes! Great shot though!

    They swiped the idea from the couple mid-way down in my Summer of Love posting.

    Hi, interesting topic – I have just bought an electric bike that I use to get to work everyday. I Just plug in at work to recharge it and then cycle home.
    Absolutely love the bike, it was cheap and simple to use. I got it from they seemed good but I am sure there are many other companies out there too.
    Good luck
