Do we really even need a bike lane on Herkimer or Charlton? For what? To make it 'official' that you can ride your bike on the road? I can see creating these lanes on busy streets like Cannon but on Herkimer you can ride down the middle of the street any time you want. Look back for the occasional car once in a while, move to the side a bit and you're fine. I'm sure that every biker, given the opportunity to either ride hemmed in right next to all of the parked cars or just cruise down the middle, will choose the middle. Personally I think they are just painting lines on the road to promote a positive urban image. Any practicality regarding cycling is obviously secondary to the effort.
