Beirut's first bike lane was cast into controversy Tuesday, when the local municipality ordered its organizers to remove the bright blue paint from the sidewalk of the seaside Corniche area.The bike lane was painted under an initiative put into action by G Association, a non-governmental organization that focuses on the environment and energy, but Beirut's Mayor Bilal Hamad told The Daily Star that the NGO had not received the permission necessary to start their project. The two-lane bike path, which is over a meter wide, was painted right down the middle of the Corniche sidewalk in a light blue color.
