What do you think of the double-wide bike lanes the city has used on Victoria? That is, the city took a full car-width lane, then converted half of it into a bike lane and the other half into an unused buffer zone.

I'm personally a fan even though it results in cars parking in the lane and it's not really protected, because it does give me a bit of a safe buffer space and it's better than nothing, and the City just has to put down paint - no extra cost to plow it or pour concrete or anything else. Just paint. That means that every ludicrously overbuilt 1-way in this city could easily get that treatment.

And, of course, brave/illegal cyclists can ignore the 1-way sign and use it as contra-flow at their own peril since there's enough room for oncoming cyclist traffic. But I don't know what those guys do when they come to the intersection at Barton.
