ROUTE DISCUSSION 

This from Friday's comments about Bike-to-Work week:

What great timing! I am getting a Raleigh 3-spd tuned up this weekend to start commuting to work next week.

Front St > Linglestown > Either Industrial Rd or 6th

See ya on the road!
Brian


I've actually ridden Front St from downtown (starting on the Riverfront Park pathway) all the way out to Fort Hunter Park (where I dropped in on an ultimate frisbee game), and found it a typical road in many regards. I think I remember the shoulder being quite adequate so that shouldn't be an issue. If your coming from the North, just be careful to allow yourself plenty of time and space to merge into the left hand lane for turning onto Linglestown Rd.

As far as Linglestown goes, it has always been quite busy when I have driven it, but have never biked it. Good clearance on the sides though and two lanes make it an easily rideable road.

Now Industrial Rd or 6th depends on your comfort around the big rigs, which of course dominate Industrial Rd. I have ridden Industrial Rd from the Farm Show complex over to Wildwood, and I always get off the road and go through the HACC parking lots and service roads when I can. The northern most parking lot leads to a gravel road which connects with the safety buildings up at HACC entrance #5 (I think), and I've seen a red fox back there twice (not a route for road bikes though). Otherwise the shoulder is quite wide closer to the I-81 underpass so I'm comfortable there. And of course north from that point, it is simple and desirable I would think to jump on the Wildwood lake path that parallels Industrial Rd (actually part of the Capitol Greenway system). I haven't ridden Sixth Street in particular, but in general, alot of those types of streets in the urban residential sections of town I 've ridden are lined with parked cars, making you take the full lane, so be prepared for some honks and hollers if you choose to do so, plus you've got more stops at signs and lights, and miss out on the beauty of the other options along Industrial Rd.
