Bike lanes can be lovely amenities.
But they also can be marred by debris.
Because bike lanes are along the sides of the pavements, they often are filled with all types of debris, such as nails, glass, pieces of metal, and all kinds of garbage.
Consider the 30 or so construction screws that covered a stretch of a bike lane on the eastbound 17th Street Bridge in Vero Beach this morning.
I stopped and picked them up.
But I do have to warn you that the eastbound bike lane does have shards of glass sprinkled along various sections of the bike lane.
So, be careful and hope you don't get a flat.
