Carrollwood Village Bike Lanes -- Let's Take A Look

Brian Eckman, owner of Carrollwood Bicycle Emporium and a member of the Hillsborough County Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, recently took some photographs of "bike lanes" in the Carrollwood Village area.

Here's a pic of the all-too-familiar disappearing bicycle lane you see in Hillsborough County and the Tampa area. It was nice to have a bike lane -- when it's not disappearing on you.

Check out this horrible bike lane, half of which looks like a drainage area. No wonder why bicyclist newcomers don't want to bike around the Tampa area.
