The Stupidest Bike Lane in America

Alert readers David P. and Ethan send along the following video.

A video blogger at Slate went looking for the stupidest bike lane in America, and to the surprise of nobody found it right here in Los Angeles.

Andy Bowers braves 275 feet of bike lane on Gayley street near UCLA with a camera on his head to bring us the news that Westwood has the stupidest bike lane in America.  Bowers complains about the short distance, that the lane doesn't connect anything, and it dumps cyclists back into traffic with no notice.

The video ends with a challenge, if you think you have a dumber bike lane, send it to slatev@slate.com.
