After visiting a friend in the hospital twice — for two bike crashes in the course of a single year – Dave Brindley was moved to action. He made his own bike lane.

The West Philadelphia resident figured he could do something, at least, about the most dangerous spot on his morning commute, the 3700 block of Spruce Street. There’s a bike lane, but there’s also a corner Wawa and a wide shoulder that tempts a constant stream of motorists to park, forcing cyclists to swerve into traffic.
