I ride lafayete ave but usually only for a block or two because it's too dangerous. You have to take the lane because there is not enough roof for two lanes of traffic and a bike. However the cars are alway racing each other down Lafayette and they honk at you and pass close when you do take a lane. Lafayette is a nice through street that I would take often if it had room for bikes. I recommend a two way bike lane, like PPW, but I would take just a wide lane with a buffer like DeKalb Ave.
