Johnson St. Bridge by bike

Check out Raymond Parker's video taken from his bike while riding through the tangled octopus of roads and trails that take you on or off the Johnson St. Bridge.  It's not an ideal facility for cyclists, to say the least, and the video helps illustrate some of the challenges.

One of the key issues, and it was emphasized in the city's polling of citizens, is how to make the crossing more bike and pedestrian friendly.  It was at the top of the wish list for those surveyed.  While many cyclists already cross the bridge every day, encouraging more people to choose cycling means providing more supportive facilities.

Take the virtual ride at Ray's blog.
