Reader offers some cycling route advice
Dear Street Smarts, Q: I have been following some of the Murray Bridge discussion. I'd like to share the route I take when riding in the Murray Bridge area: My preference is to avoid the bridge. So, I go down 7th Avenue and through the Crow's Nest and harbor parking lots to pick up the bike path. The bike path goes under the bridge and loops around the end of the harbor and continues on the other side. A rider comes out by the sailing school and continues around through another harbor parking lot and climb up a shortish hill to Atlantic Avenue. Atlantic takes a rider out to Seabright and Murray. It is a wee bit longer but an excellent ride without the traffic challenge. Leave the sidewalks to the walkers!!! Claudia MacLeod A: Thank you for your advice, Claudia.
