We were just in Barcelona for 4 days 2 weeks ago. I never saw this "grid" as pictured, but yes, there as well as in many other cities in Europe, bikes would lane filter to the front at lights then take off ahead of everyone else on green. It was funny to see a pack of 15 scooters taking off toward you sounding like a pack of bees, haha.

FWIW, Spain had a helmet law... EVERYONE wore one. I think Italy did too b/c I don't remember seeing anyone without one. Greece didn't b/c people would ride with sandals, shorts, and tank tops, no lid.

Overall, IMO riding over there is safer... there are SOOOO many bikes/scooters that people grow up seeing them all over and KNOW to look for them on the roads and filtering between lanes. There aren't nearly the same amount on the roads here so people don't grow up learning to look for them at all times.

ya i think were gonna see a day where inner city traffic may be populated with about 40% bikes with the way things are going. not a bad thing tho. maybe people will grow more accustomed to sharing the road.
