Bike Lane on Prospect Park West?

Interesting piece here on the plans for a new bike lane on Prospect Park West that will allow bikers to travel north and south (with the idea of moving the cyclists off the sidewalk).

From the times I run on the outside of the park, it does seem there's occasional bike traffic heading toward Grand Army Plaza (and I certainly concede that you can't bike north, i.e. clockwise, in the park, without causing an accident). From a (selfish, myopic) running perspective, it hasn't seemed to be an issue - especially given that people do run both ways in the park.

Be interesting to see how this one turns out.
