I do a daily commute through downtown and along York Blvd.-Plains Road and have had many of the same thoughts over the last few weeks. My ride is a recumbent trike- a bit wider than a standard bike- so the "swerving cyclist" comment particularly rang true. One thing I've noticed is that in many places there simply isn't anywhere for the plowed windrow of snow except for in the bike lane. Also, after the plows have gone through, businesses and residents plow out their driveways and leave the resulting snow piles in the bike lane. I pretty much gave up on the bike lane and just took my spot in the right lane of traffic. Got honked at a lot, but at least I was more predictable.
