Great show. I only caught the last 1/2 hour. I'll listen to the rest later. I was hoping to get thru to ask why they changed the lights at the Broadway/HWY 5 crossing? I find it more prejudace making bikes wait while cars get to go thru straight, and turn right while bikes have to wait....made me dis-obey the signal (safely of course).
I also want to point out that all these carefully planned bike routes, and paths, and lanes (like around PSU) cause me to go slower. I avoid them because I want to go faster. Do you think of fast bikers?
Critical improvement for me and my regular riding commuting (25 miles to work each way) is Ross Island Bridge (dirty, scary, unsafe at the West end)....any thoughts on improving RI Bridge?
Corneilus Pass to Old German Town Road. Very narrow, fast unsafe traffic. Can we get some bike signs on the ground to make drivers aware they have to pass safely?
Thanks again! Doak
