On Monday, Los Angeles welcomed a new, bright green bike lane through the Historic Core--it stretches a mile and a half, from Cesar Chavez to Ninth St. Yesterday, intrepid Curbed photographer Elizabeth Daniels traveled the route and came back with this photographic virtual ride. She tells us there were only a handful of bikers using the lane, but plenty of cars crossing and driving in it. Downtown is going to have to learn how to use its new toy. As for the splotchy green paint (it was installed over the weekend in stormy weather), Streetsblog says that "This is the first LADOT project using this roadway paint, so they’ll be finding out what works well and what doesn’t."
