bridge over troubled asphalt

I actually rode on the new bike bridge last night, and it’s pretty nice. I know, it’s kind of weird to say that riding across the street was a cool experience, but that was a pretty bad spot for bikes.

I came north on Aldrich from south of Lake Street (watch out for construction on Aldrich between 29th and 28th, including the bridge over the Greenway), and you hit the bridge, a block north of Franklin. It takes you swooping across Lyndale, you loop back down and end up on the north side of the 94 eastbound entrance on Lyndale. They still need to do some work at this point, because the pavemen’t doesn’t actually connect the end of the bridge to the bike path, and also some signage directing bikers would be helpful. Not to mention that while bikers no longer have to cross the entrance to the freeway, they’re now coming down a hill and cross a sidewalk that’s blind to the north. In other words, watch out for pedestrians when coming down the bridge!

    Yeah, that looks tricky over there. I guess I’ll just have to try it and hope I don’t end up in traffic.
