Today’s Trib has a letter from Ken Werner from Walk//Bike Ross. He rewrote an earlier letter I authored.

As of 6pm, no replies, for or against.

Apropos of nothing us cyclists keep a lookout for narrow sidewalks made worse by construction signs from Penndot etc. I never knew the regs for minimum sidewalk width for ADA so I looked it up- 36″.

Woman wearing earbuds hit by train.

Yesterday on the trail there were quite a few people with earbuds who must have had them up so high they could not hear me honking my horn or screaming “on your left” and walking down the middle of the trail. In one case I was 2 feet the person. :(
