Sounds like two lycra-clad lads on their carbon rockets, going head to head inbound trying to break the one hour record or something...the guy behind stuffed up and took out the guy in front's rear wheel. Stacks on the mill. Nasty.
LOL! Funny if true.

Clearly it isn't a bike lane, no signs, too narrow, etc and is more likely there to demarcate the door zone. I don't really like 2.5 tonne Mercedes Benz' beeping and accelerating at me to try and get me to use something that to them looks like a bike education. Some education wouldn't go astray, but nor would making the markings look less like a bike lane. It would be good to know if this is general or one off experience. If the former, I was thinking it could be worth encouraging the road manager (City of Melbourne) to make the markings less ambiguous.
