The shared (?) bikelane

I am so happy I started this blog long time ago, because the stream of ridiculous news about biking policy and propaganda never seems to reach an end. Here is one more: "while around 120 kilometers of paths have been established in downtown Taipei City, mostly on shared sidewalks." Article here
I beg you pardon? OK then, So who (or what) are we sharing with? Pedestrians, shops showing theirs goods on the street, building construction, parked motorcycles, trucks loading and unloading deliveries, people getting in and out of public transportation (taxi's buses), MRT exit and entries, pillars of buildings. Sharing? I am Sorry. Again, can you tell what the biker(s) get of this 120km IN DOWNTOWN Taipei?
