Boskodude, 6/23/2008 - 9:48pm "My concerns here are to do with the article regarding recent Behaviours along Tulsa's Bike Path along Riverside Drive.
I have been taking my own 21 speed bicycle down to that path for quite some time as well.
Noticing some really drastic but Terrific Changes in the overall look and feel of the bike Path from 11th street to currently about 31st street. They have really been putting alot of hard work into this new bike path.... And.... Pedestrian walk as well. Even inserting great areas in which people can sit for a few moments and rest up or regroup after pedaling a great distance. I've even noticed how those Roller Blade enthusiasts can really get moving along the new pathways. Joggers, Speed Walkers, and just Walkers all enjoying this renovated bike path. It's really Nice...!
Now I have noticed how the rebuilders have fenced off more areas of issue to renovate and give a fresh new look too along the areas starting at 41st street and Riverside.
I was told by some workers there that eventually they will stretch this new Pathway for many more Miles along the Riverside Parkway in a Southerly direction of Tulsa's Riverside Drive.
As for Common Courtesy amongst Cyclists, Walkers, Joggers, Skaters, and the like...
I have observed how at times Bikers may get very caught up in conversation or just working diligently pedaling hard to maintain a more constant or constistant speed along the path...and not perhaps paying as much attention to walkers and joggers as they could. But I haven't experienced it as intentional on the Cyclists' part.
Over time, it looks like all this much dedicated hard work of the people rebuilding the Path Ways....will bring about a better crowd of enthusiasts and as this happens...perhaps some signs that Read :
"Ride Friendly" or to that effect can be added on to the Path Ways.
The overall designs and plant life as well as the so much Smoother Path Way is really fantastic to experience..!
Now my prob has to do with a topic I wrote to Julie Chin the Woman Meterologist at Channel 2 -KJRH News TV recently....having to do with What causes some of the stronger Winds that can lean on us as Cyclists tooting along the Pathways...???
All I can say is:
Practice common Curteousy and use a little Tolerance....but mainly...
Enjoy It People...!!!"
