Keep Bike Lanes Clear 

I wanted to say a few words about the, you guessed it, bike lanes. We have seen many, many responses to the bike lanes here

I wanted to say a few words about the, you guessed it, bike lanes. We have seen many, many responses to the bike lanes here in Bend and how important it is to keep them free of vehicles and junk. Just a reminder to those who commute via the man-powered machine with two wheels: Please do not park in the bike lanes unless it is an emergency.

Only city vehicles and emergency vehicles can park in the bike lane - NOT semi's, pickup trucks, cars, delivery trucks etc. If I get hit by a car (while) avoiding some idiot in the bike lane, guess who will be sued? It is not worth the headache, and if you are in a company vehicle and this happens, well, the obvious applies to you, too.

So to avoid an impact with a cyclist and his machine please, please, please do not park in the bike lanes - even if it is for a few minutes.

Thanks and God Bless,

Simon T.
