Default Bracelets for Bike Lanes?

I find it noteworthy that you, a proponent of bike lanes installed
on every road, quote "Andy's Expedition 2002" in its entirety,
including this salient bit:

"I think it would less expensive and more practical just to improve
roads to accommodate bicycles better. It doesn't take a lot, just a
decent paved shoulder: 3 feet of asphalt. With that, I can ride
anywhere with complete confidence. I don't need 5 or 6 feet nor fancy
lines or markings. It doesn't have to be a separate project, just
include it the next time the road is worked on."

In northern Ontairo they had some portions of freshly done highway
sporting beautiful 3 foot shoulders with rumble strips cut into them
to wake up errant cagers before they slumber their way into the bush.


BC is having it's share of probs with them, too:

Interesting info. In Ontario they just had a machine that gouged a
1" or so deep trench for about 2.5 feet of the 3 foot shoulder
starting at the white line leaving you with the option of either
riding the white line or riding the 6" or so of extreme outside
paving....the white line was the answer.
