Ustick Road has certainly had its widening issues over the years, but if you're a bicyclist who commutes regularly, the stretch of road just east of Cole Road might not be wide enough still. Especially on trash day.

The new three-feet-to-pass ordinance requires cars to give cyclists a full yard of breathing room, but a cyclist would be hard-pressed to even stay in the bike lane heading east on Ustick. Citydesk drove by a line of about two dozen city trash and recycle bins on the Bench road Tuesday night and snapped these photos. A few blocks down, residents put their bins on the sidewalk, out of the bicycle lane.
