|A bike lane is a portion of the roadway that has been designated by striping and pavement markings for use by bicyclists. See this bike lane marking from the entrance of Twin Lakes Recreational Area.|
|Bike lane markings include a solid line and a stencil of a person on a bike with an arrow above to indicate the proper direction of travel. Bicyclists should always ride in the direction indicated by the arrow painted on the street.|
