City workers spray a bicycle-related glyph onto the street near Clay and Sansome. I’m not sure what exactly it’s supposed to be saying. Anyone?

    The double chevron usually indicates that a bike lane has just ended and cyclists need to share the road with motorists. Basically it’s an implied bicycle route when there isn’t space for a separate lane.

    They are “shared roadway markings”, also known by the cringe-inducing name “sharrow”. See here for more:
