two bike lanes with one van

It's not immediately obvious why there are two bike lanes here, at the Temple Circus Gyratory between Redcliffe Way and Temple Way heading towards the M32 Presumably the on-road one abandons you where it gets complex, while the on-pavement one gives people who write letters in to the evening post about bikes on pavements something to complain about. Given the amount of street furniture on that path, it gives the bikes some technical practise too.

Whatever the reason, the rule that "bike lanes are for parking on" applies to both lanes, an option which this van appears to be exercising.
