Even in their absence bike lanes proved a source of frustration. Back in sleepy Brooklyn I often get yelled at by drivers on streets without bike lanes. ‘What do you think you’re doing?

It’s illegal (and dangerous) to ride on the sidewalk and you certainly don’t need a bike lane to ride on any street you want.
