It is a shame our city fathers are so short-sighted, when it comes to safety on the roads — not just for cyclists but also for hikers, skate boarders, etc. We are supposedly the Tournament Capital. Is that just a name or a reality?
The Ord Road to Cinnamon Ridge compost site is a racetrack for all ages. There are no bike lane for families with children and it is an accident waiting to happen.
Schubert Drive is also full of potholes. It is a great place to walk and ride and needs an upgrade. Westsyde to the Dunes and beyond needs a proper bike lane on both sides.These are just a few safety items on the North Shore that should be looked at. With electric bikes more and more on the road, hundreds of families are getting out there. Let’s try and make it safe for everyone. Thank you.
