I’m not sure if Second Ave sucks more or less since they repaved. On one hand, the section by Rite Aid is waay less wavy, while on the other hand, it isn’t smooth either.
Also, they haven’t lined up any of the utility covers or storm drains, so I can definitely seen those causing pinch flats if accidentally run into. Further more, right now there’s about a four inch incline between the Glenwood Bridge on ramp and the new pavement, with a little 60 degree piece of pavement that doesn’t do much
Yeah, I meant separated bike lanes. I’m also not too keen on projects like the Friendship Bike lane which puts cyclists in an area where they’re not safe.
I’d be inclined to take the lane and now drivers are going to be even more frustrated because there’s a “perfectly good” bike lane right next to me. Until somebody opens there door some or somebody walks out in front of a car…
@ Perce Last Friday I’ve encountered a passenger left side just opened in front of me. But I was in my car. The car in front of me just got to the curb and almost immediately passenger door opened and female talking on the cell just jumped out. I kind of anticipated and was able to stop. But it was close. 2 feet to be exact. And 5 minutes later another car rolls out of side street on my right with stop sign and driver on cell and watching her right side. This time even closer. 1 feet and honk. And she did not even stopped. Just looked at me, mouth wide opened and fear in eyes. She continued to make her left turn. All this happened after Dino ride on my way to Performance Bicycles.
Negley from Stanton to ELB is the plan. Sharrows would be nice along Negley in general, but not holding my breath. Friendship Ave sharrows recently re-appeared on the fresh tarmac between the park & S. Atlantic both ways.
