    This one is unambiguously marked as a bike lane: The view looking southbound, just south of LRT

    And the detour is very hazardous as well.

    For instance: Minnieville Road. From Tackett's Mill to Fowke, at least there's a wide sidepath and a low turn volume that is mostly residential. South of...

    I've done this only once, perhaps about five years ago. I don't even remember my travel destination. It was a 1-2 day trip and I only carried a backpack, using the front rack. The most challenging...

    Even when the W&OD is open, this is a nice alternative to be familiar with. Since I first learned about Lincoln Ave, I have never returned to the official route (aka the stop sign olympics) through...

    Parked cars are in fact part of the physical separation between southbound bicycles and automobiles, in addition to the buffer, if I interpret the design docs correctly. The design resembles Wilson...
