Of course it's in Boulder, CO but I like this idea....

Bicycle-only drive-through lane
Boulder is a city dedicated to its bicyclists, offering extensive, safe and beautiful bike paths throughout the community. To help support this cyclist-friendly way of life, Pueblo Bank & Trust is proud to now offer cyclist-only drive-thru banking at our Boulder bank. This lane is dedicated to bikes only, so it is designed to be safe from auto traffic and specially equipped for riders' ease of use.
Nice. I use the regular drive-through line, no probs. nmSpunout

Just don't give me beef for using the regular drive-thru and I'm satisfied.

Wells Fargo to be specific. I don't bank with them (or have a mortgage through them) anymore for that and other reasons. They said it was an insurance liability issue.
Drive-thru fast food says the same thing here......nmDave Hickey

When it opened (about a year and a half ago) about 100 of us drove our cruiser bikes through it. Surprised them. They were having a grand opening with a band playing and free hotdogs and such. Gave us all a free meal and many of us got one of those stainless steel sports bottles to boot. ANother "only in Boulder" happening. We all posed for pics and made a lap through the bike lane. Cool.

in Houston something like that would soon be crowded with motorized scooters and Segways...

the idea of anything "crowded with segues" is absolutely horrific.
