Bike lanes are not snow storage areas

But the municipalities to whom we pay our taxes are unaware of that. According to them, Fish Hatchery Road is apparently not a major vehicle route and the city of Madison is unable to communicate with Dane County. The primary reason that the bike lane on Fish Hatch is now clear-ish is because of the Great Melt of 2009.

So glad to be back on my road bike today. The melt has made it safe for this afternoon and possibly tomorrow. Must get studded tires -- maybe on my way home today. Otherwise, it's just the bus and the very heavy one-speed townie with two-inch-wide tires. Call me a wimp, but I'm just not up to riding 8.5 miles to work on that thing.
