I thought the OP was satire....

Also, I have never in my life seen anyone running on the road. Footpaths and PSP, all the time. Road - never.

It must depend on where you live, because I rode past two (running together) on the road in suburban Adelaide yesterday, and on this particular road they are a fairly common sight.

Though - back to the title of this thread - I can't remember the last time I saw one in a bicycle lane.

I run on the road all the time. Many of the roads hereabouts don't have footpaths.

Now I can't recall running in a bike lane.

But if the footpath was nonexistent or covered in crap or badly broken up, I'd use the lane.

Well, after saying I'd never seen this in my entire life, guess what I saw on my group ride that Saturday morning? :mrgreen: We saw the jogger up ahead in the bike lane, running towards us, so we moved over and went around him.

And then 20 minutes later, we had to go around another one!!! I had to laugh - never seen it before, then see 2 in 20 minutes :D
