"sharrows" = sharing arrows...
I think its a great, simple solution that does not add to the visual clutter of road signs and is flexible enough to continue from a wide boulevard to narrow street...
and is clear about who has to share the road with whom :)

SOMbike's next family bike ride will be on the wonderful bike paths in Loantaka Brook Reservation (on the Madison side) on Sunday, June 27th. We will meet in the parking lot on Laontaka Way, where Shunpike Rd. dead-ends. If you've ever been to St. Hubert's Animal Shelter, it's right near by. There is a picnic area off the parking lot, and after the ride, those that want to bring along a picnic, please do. Also, bring water, as there aren't places right near the reservation to buy stuff.
Meet-up: 11 AM in the Loantaka Way Parking Lot

When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.
