"Sorry, I'd be somewhat pressed (I'm sure) to find that post! For myself, I would simply use the bike-lane down the top end of The Parade, general Kensington Park area as example."

Daniel replied to Michael Murray's discussion What does "in the bicycle lane" mean ?
"Yes, that is exactly what I think! When the bike lane is in the door zone of parked cars, I take the space marked within it as exactly the space one shouldn't ride in. I usually ride right on the right-hand white line, as others have said."

"Ah well spotted. Thanks.  That's pretty clear.  So I guess give a metre from the cars in the interests of practicality and just hope you don't meet that delightful couple in the youtube video.  "

"Rule 146: "A driver on a multi-lane road must drive so the driver's vehicle is completely in amarked lane ..." In the case of a bicycle lane, I think "completely in" would mean that the entire bicycle, including the…"

"Makes me think of the motor cyclists who ride at speed around blind corners on Gorge Rd, their wheels are inside the white line but their heads are in line with the 4WD coming the other way."

"Ah very nice.  Reasonable and clear explanation !  Any idea how wide that bike lane is ? I guess I could take a tape measure next time I go down there.  I'm figuring 1m for the door and my total bike width is 0.5 m.  So my…"

rossmg replied to Michael Murray's discussion What does "in the bicycle lane" mean ?
"Yep, I also cycle pretty much right on the right-hand white line. As far as I am concerned the majority of "bike-lanes" are "no-cycle-lanes" aka "get doored lanes". I remember on this same forum someone getting hassled…"

What does "in the bicycle lane" mean ?

As we know Rule 247 (1) says The rider of a bicycle riding on a length of road with a bicycle lane designed for bicycles travelling in the same direction as the rider must ride in the bicycle lane unless it is impracticable to do But what does "in" mean ? Is it enough to have my wheels on the RH line ? Or does the whole bicycle, panniers etc need to be inside the line.My guess is I'm a vehicle and I would expect in means the vehicle is in.  That's what I'd expect to apply to cars and trucks.I'm…See More

An eclectic mix of cyclists. It takes time to know AC members, and sometimes even gender, when avatars of cycling gear, childhood photos and Cadell. Gradually learn there are mature members, like us. Do you think that your title ever helps when writing cycling advocacy letters and submissions?
