Alright apparently my city's civil engineers love torturing cyclists.
Pictured is a highway overpass's final stretch, descending until it reaches an intersection where it's over.
I am at position 1. I'm in a dedicated bike lane. I want to make a left turn, to get to point number 4. Now, ordinarily, I'd like to cross over to point 2, and make a left turn, but given the two lanes of rage cage, even my downhill speeds won't please them, and I'm likely to get fucking killed.
So, my next plan would be to box-turn or whatever. Go to point 3, then cross safely. However, to make a right turn, I have to cross over the lane 5 which is a blindspot death trap of speeding cars. They speed because their lane ends about 10 meters after they cross the intersection.
I've labeled lane 6 for no particular reason, however it is a risk that they can signal to turn there, but instead blow through because they're going into the other lane, not onto the overpass.
So, how on earth am I supposed to tackle this?

Strava hate thread.
How can anyone really take this shit seriously? It's so easy to fake all of it. A clever, technically competent person wouldn't even have to get up from their computer to fake everything they post there.
If someone wants to "compete" against other riders to prove their athleticism, then they should sign up for actual races and compete against other riders, in person, for real, with real results, not post bullshit on some website.
Post in this thread if you think Strava is stupid!
Strava-lovers need not apply.
