Our transportation department has seen fit to create newly painted stripes designating bicycle lanes along various streets and avenues around the city to encourage more people to get out of their cars and onto their bicycles. Kudo’s to the visionaries of Syracuse. Now all we need is to convince those so inclined to use them and also promote safer driving so motorists don’t clobber bikers en route.
It will be tough at first as these lanes aren’t linked continuously yet. Hopefully the funding to maintain those bicycling routes will allow for maintenance when needed and for expansion so that some day we’ll have a fully functioning contiguous multi-modal city.
So, get out there and bike baby bike! See more regional biking routes here.
