Halftime show! Check out this flashy video showing a massive plan to remake Rio’s waterfront. Hmm, some of this looks pretty familiar…

    The Linden cycle track is nearly finished!
    It’s open to the point that I’ve ridden the entire stretch (to work and back) in the last couple days. And, it’s some fast-rolling black-top! They removed (and are relocating) the last row of parking spaces that required crossing traffic lanes while going southbound.

    They are putting the finishing touches on it so I wouldn’t be surprised to see some parts of it ‘coned off’ during the next week or so, and there are still the usual work/construction vehicles parked sporadically in it during the day. Still, I’ve shaved more than a few minutes off my commute now that I don’t have to play ‘Frogger’ through there anymore! Good times…

    I have to say San Antonio has a lot of bike lanes but they are on the same street as high volume traffic. While I was visiting family we saw a total of 3 people on bikes in the week we were there and they didn’t look like commuters. Personally, I would be very nervous riding my bike in those lanes.

    Here is Mayor Bill Krawietz’s official email address, in case you want to drop him a line: [email protected]
    “The last thing we want to do is to start ramping up citations for the littlest infractions to get you to notice.”

    On an unrelated note–has anyone seen the highway size signage on the BGT declaring a “DETOUR May 6 thru” TBD from the west side of canal park to 2 blocks west? It seems that whatever the reason, bike to work month is a tragic sense of timing… It would be a funny prank to make our fair weather cyclist friends think they have to hit Leary on their first ride to work, but it’s not April 1st!

    • Al Dimond says:

      I think the BGT detour is to repair some very old electrical equipment related to the big power lines that cross the ship canal at 3rd. I don’t know this for sure, but I’d think the detour would be short, and might not require using Leary at all.
