Looks like the North Shore Trail is getting a new name.
Today, on 25th anniversary of his swearing in, Mayor Peduto presented Mayor Tom Murphy the key to the city and announced plans to rename the North Side riverfront trail in his honor pic.twitter.com/8qWsFhbkg0
This concerns me, as I own property in Hempfield, I ride a bike for transportation, and ride in accordance with PA traffic law. If you encounter me on the road, I fear you will think I am this other guy, and wish to do me harm.
Can we be clear what 75-3301c1 means? Yes, a cyclist may occupy the full lane on a two-lane road. Even if we are in the right-most inch of the lane, you still have to cross halfway into the oncoming lane to pass us, so our position within the lane makes no difference. Just change lanes and pass. Yes, you may legally cross a yelow line to pass a cyclist if visibly safe to do so, same as driving around a downed tree. On a 4-lane road, the cyclist uses the entire right lane; you pass in the left lane. Got it?
Why train travel between PGH and phily takes so long. Good primer on who owns what rails and getting access to rails vis a vis rail issues and rail trails. A bit tangential to the message board but still interesting.
