CA — Word has it that sharrows, or shared-use arrows, have made their debut in Pasadena.

[[image:sharrow2_copy1.jpg::inline:1]]Sharrows are markings painted directly onto the road consisting of a stencil of a bicycle with two chevrons  placed above it. They are designed to function as a guide to encourage safe riding  and driving behavior  from both bicyclists and motorists.

Apparently they have been applied on S. Lake St. in Pasadena. The photo here is taken in Pasadena by  long-time local bike advocate and enthusiast, Dennis Crowley.

Unfortunately we don't know much more about the project at this time, but this news definitely warrants a trip to the historic and beautiful Pasadena to check them out.

If anyone has more information about the new sharrows, please share your information with us.
