So the City has painted a gutter lane on a perfectly good street thus, in my opinion, turning it into a no-so-good street. Why not-so-good? As the video shows — and every bicycle lane advocate knows — cars tend to sweep the streets. So gutter lanes fill up with all kinds of debris. The narrower the entire travel lane and the closer the left edge of the bicycle lane is to the gutter, the more crap bicyclists are forced to ride through.
Perhaps you think the bicycle lanes will be cleaned or cleared. Have camera, will check, will keep you posted on how that’s working.
