Day 194 : lanes

imageSandy: In Lake Tahoe, along the Truckee River, is a walking path. It has two lanes indicated by a painted line down the middle. In each lane, occasionally you will see an image of a bicycle with the word Right printed below it and an image of a pedestrian with the word Left printed below it, also painted in the lanes. What’s confusing is that it is customary for faster traffic to travel on the left, slower on the right. What’s more, painted on the path elsewhere, the same signs were used but were facing the opposite direction which would put pedestrians in the cycling lane. Half the time cyclists were yelling, “on your left”.

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
