Pop-Up Bike Lanes

Posted by Steve Reiter on June 20, 2017

While not a brand new idea, this article shows how it can work.  It’s something that we believe should be considered on new lanes in Syracuse.  Try it and get feedback before going to the much larger expense of installing permanent lanes.

Cycle in the City

Posted by Steve Reiter on June 13, 2017

The June Cycle in the City rides will be on Father’s Day, June 18th, beginning at 9 a.m. at the Creek Walk trailhead on Jefferson Street near the M.O.S.T.

The rides are a variation of a ride we did last year that, for the long ride, includes the Bear Trap Creek trail that runs next to 81N. While there are some hills on the routes there are no steep hills.

In May we had enough people on the longer ride that it would have been better to have divided into two separate groups. If anyone is interested in leading a group on the upcoming long ride, let John Allen ( know and he will send the map so that you have time to become familiar with it. He expects that he would lead the second group and probably ride a little slower than the first group.
