Thanks for stating the obvious.  Given that in Multnomah and Washington 
Counties in Oregon, bicycle lanes are required to be installed on all 
roads more major than residential where there's physical space, the only 
ways left that don't fit this category are officially discouraged on the 
official cyclemaps.

This is at least the second time in as many months I've had to remind
you to NOT vandalise the map.  Please heed the advice.
