Letter: Keep our bike paths in good shape, please

Editor:

I am a recent user of the bike paths throughout Kamloops.

I would like to invite the powers that be (in charge of said bike paths) to take a closer look at the path over the Overlander Bridge using a mobilty scooter and get to experience first-hand each spine crunching, liver jostling, bone shaking foot of it and many of the handicap accesses to get on and off the sidewalks particularly on the North Shore.

I have not had to navigate many on the South Shore yet.

While the bike paths are a great asset to the city and I have indeed enjoyed the few weeks I have spent getting to know them, I am very disappointed in the condition of especially the bridge one. It is a very different experience traversing these paths on a bicycle than on a mobility scooter.
