I was looking through my most popular bits on Flickr and came across this drawing I made in January 2007.
Notice how I put a bike rack in the street. Portland starting on-street bike parking corrals in 2002, I believe.
It looks surprisingly like the Kinzie Street bike lane 😉
I cannot remember from where I got the inspiration to draw this. I hadn’t yet traveled to New York City or Portland; I probably saw a drawing of this on Streetsblog for a facility that would soon be built in New York City (9th Avenue cycle track popped up later in 2008).
I don’t remember my obsession with bicycle planning beginning that early.
