I was riding down Holland Ave. yesterday and what did I see? Sharrows! Yes it’s true, from New Scotland Ave. probably all the way to Delaware Ave., I did not get that far since I turned on to Hackett Blvd., there are brand new sharrows along with signs that say, “Bicycles may use full lane.” They have recently done some work on Holland Ave., and it seems whenever they do a new road now and days that is not a major one they put sharrows down. Let me tell you, Holland Ave. needed repaving. The vertical cracks were a danger to cyclists and motorists, mostly because cyclists would ride in the left side to avoid the cracks and the car doors.
But I digress, Yay for sharrows and yay for Albany for showing initiative to include bicycles as a mode of transportation!
