i'm going to suggest that we don't do narrow in this manner. going back
to the photo that started this whole thing, i'd suggest


to indicate that the lane is narrow (width is sufficient indication of this)
and that there's a physical barrier to one side. the cyclist should
be able to infer that s/he'll be riding in a narrow lane with traffic
to one side and a barrier to the other.
