Maissoneuve in Montreal is one way and has two-way bike lanes on one side - see google street view.

Note that ..

  • the bike lane is separated by a good-size curb
  • this only went in last year, IIRC

I've not used the Maisonneuve lanes. Though I have used the similar two-way bike lane on Rachel, a two-way street - see google street view. They felt really nice.

And I note, too, that even in anarchic Montreal, most of my fellow cyclists actually stopped for stop signs and red lights: another bit of anecdata which has brought me to believe that if cycling is treated as a form of traffic deserving of infrastructure that cyclists will see themselves as part of traffic rather than contending with traffic.
