I was very excited to ride the new Charlton bike lane to work this morning, but ended up getting confused and then honked at while turning left onto Queen. There is now only 1 turning lane, and solid lines between the bike, straight and turning lane. I'll have to get into the turn lane at Hess, slowing down motor vehicle traffic. I foresee many more honks directed at me in my future.
