    The unfortunate irony in Albuquerque is that, by doing a poor job of introducing on-street bike lanes by making them “buffered” instead of truly protected, they’ve created more confusion and backlash than they otherwise would have if they’d done it right from the get-go. It will now be that much harder to add more bike lanes because the push-back will be stronger.
