Should have spray painted “asshole” on the ticket.

I looked briefly last night and it almost looked like there was an illegally parked car, and the line painters have left a gap where the car was parked.

Real comedy would have been for the line painters to just continue the stripe over the car.

normally when im heading east from station sq i’ll double back to the river & user the bike path, but today i proudly rode the entire span of the new lane.

a slight traffic buffer would be nice, but if you stay on the right side its a comfy ride.

So, going eastward, from the eastern end of the new lane, what’s the safest, least complex way to get to the river trail? (assuming I don’t care to duke it out with cars and buses on either Carson or Sarah, or for that matter, Muriel)

There just are not that many entry points to the trail, and I’m not south often enough to have them memorized.

Plus I won’t be the only person who would want to know this info.

The start of the lane is lil bit past the intersection of Arlington & Carson and the other endd is @ Carson & 9th.

If your on the Heritage trail thru the Station sq parking lot one could turn up S. Second St (at the pen dot facility) and head to Carson. The other end lines up with the Heritage entrance on S.9th st (at the train crossing.)

The portion of the trail that is bypassed is the part with the parking lot & the new trees along the river’s edge.

pictures being worth a thousand words…

I should start carrying a dry erase marker with me to leave people notes. Once, I wrote “JERK” in the dirt on someone’s window when they were blocking the crosswalk, but I’d rather have written “GET OUT OF THE CROSSWALK.” just didn’t want to use my hand to do it.

@RubberFactory:

I’ll keep the dry-erase marker in mind as there is someone parked blocking the crosswalk at the corner of Semple and Ward Streets in Oakland like 90% of the time when I go past there.

while I was spray painting road hazards for Sunday’s ride.

I have noticed lots of utility access points with crumbling pavement etc. with orange boxes or arrows around them lately!

I’ve occasionally thought of the pink “Y” hazard markings, discussed at http://bike-pgh.org/bbpress/topic/crashing-bike-stencil/page/2 , over the past year or so.
