I ride my bike on Hillsborough Street daily, and I would much rather see sharrows than designated bike lanes.
Sure, I'm in favor of anything to draw awareness, but why are bike lanes the answer? Cyclists should have equal rights in the lane, and designated paths prevent this as well as left turns. Additionally, there is just too much going on in Hillsborough Street in the area currently being revitalized to add another complication to the mix.
I would prefer money (where ever it comes from) to be spent on fixing potholes across the city, a larger source of stress than sharing lanes with cars is. I admire/respect Mr. Alphin and those drawing awareness to the issue, I just happen to disagree with the best way to get there.
I just ate there and was so disappointed. The quality, temperature and taste was at most sub-standard. I do not see how they can stay in business. There were no more than 15 people eating there at 12:30 PM. If you eat here, you are wasting time and money.
