Cool Hocus Pocus...

Well, my big disappearing trick is not yet complete (or physically even started). So to keep the ball rolling...

There are two hedges on 99W, one at Robin's Nest, and one at Rock Creek Bridge that are overgrowing the bike lane.
I don't have a pic of Robin's Nest, but I do have a couple of Rock Creek Bridge.

Facing West from the bikelane, you can see some of the low branches I'm talking about.

Facing East from the bikelane, you can see how narrow that area gets, do we really need a hedge making things narrower?

There are a couple of hedges that you should know about, they are overgrowing the bike lanes on SW Pacific Hwy, and could lead to a cyclist being involved in a crash.

Robin's nest, 18245 Southwest Pacific Hwy Tualatin, OR 97062 is one of them

The other is located on the East side of the Rock Creek Bridge (WB on SW Pacific Hwy)(before you reach the U-Pull IT scrapyard.) This hedge has low branches that have struck me in the head (I was wearing a helmet), and has caused me to swerve into the traffic lane to avoid them.

Could you please send someone out there to fix these problems?

I got back the following response:

I appreciate your sending an email, although the link didn't work as I only see a map of the US. I'll forward the concern to maintenance.
See... Email will help me pull off this trick...

Ok, now its YOUR turn...

Rubberside Down!
Riding my bike is MY pursuit of Happiness!!!
