We’ve posted photos of the construction on the new Jones Fall cycle track construction on the Fallsway before, but the construction has gotten along pretty well since then. The lane looks wide enough for it to be a two way cycletrack, allowing you to ride contra-flow towards downtown on the Fallsway, but it’s not clear if this is part of the design.
Having a nice cycle lane like this will make novice cyclists a lot more comfortable, since they will not have to contend with speeding traffic passing them too closely while also riding the incline.
We’ve heard some negative comments from drivers on the street, and thought it would be a good time to write a letter to our city representatives to tell them we appreciate the coming improvements. Use this page to write a letter and keep the cycletrack around for the next 25 years.
Check back in the next couple days for some information on the improvements in progress on Guilford Avenue’s new bicycle boulevard, and a new advocacy group that you can participate in.
