How Not To Design A Separated Bike Lane [Treehugger]

The City of Toronto is finally getting a separated bike lane. It's on Sherbourne Street, a block east of the soon to be painted out Jarvis Street bike lanes that keep city councillors from getting home in time for dinner. The separation is a rounded bump that is too big for a cyclist to cross easily and safely, but not too big for a UPS truck. So now, when they park in the Fedex Lane (as I call our bike lanes), cyclists will have to dismount and go around them.
According to Jack Lakey in the Star, they didn't have any choice.
