I'd like to add something to this list of things the bike lane is NOT for: storing snow.

This is especially problematic when snow is being stored in protected bike lanes - you can't get around it!

If you're going to store snow somewhere, put it in the street so cars can run over it...

I rode my bike for the first time in weeks today and I had to weave in and out of the bike lane on Columbus because there were whole blocks where there were giant piles of snow in the bike lane...NO. BUENO.

The bike lane is NOT for snow storage!
