Cycle tracks will provide a feeling of safety which will cause more people to bicycle commute. The Wasson Way bike path would provide an outstanding bike corridor for commuting and should be a high priority for the City.

Safety! I love to ride my bike but don't feel very safe on busy city streets. The more bike trails and bike lanes the better! Allen L-W.

It would offer more awareness to auto drivers which is who I worry about in the city.

Yes, possibly. Kudos to Wasson Way plan.Pleading to powerful at City Hall to also use RR tracks owned by State for a safer trail on Riverside from about Schmidt Field to Collins, Yeatman's Cove or Serpentine Wall. Enjoyed article.

The reason I don't commute by bike now is a lack of safe routes.

Cycle tracks will make cyclists feel more safe in riding on major arterial streets like Central Parkway. It and Victory Parkway are perfect for cycle tracks because both parkways already ban trucks.

I've been run over twice while cycling, once by a drunk driver who fled even though I smashed his windshield as I flipped over his car, and the second time by a woman on her cell phone while on patrol as a bike cop. Having separate bike paths is safer.

I ride where I go. There are usually quiet(er) streets available, but when needed, I do Gilbert, Reading, Madison, etc. The exception is when I have a child in a trailer. The city has made Rookwood nearly inaccessible when pulling a kiddie trailer.

I don't like many of the bike lanes because they get so full of debris it's like an obstacle course and I end up using the road anyway. My wish is that motorists would learn to accept cyclists and understand what "share the road" means.

The four best teams should play. Typically, those involve conference or league chamnpions. Sometimes, they don't. The NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and every other college football level allows the four best teams to play. The Big 10 is blocking what is best.
