Wow, I just discovered though your like that the Bridge Pedal is going on the Springwater and West side multi use paths. What an poor conceived plan. This is going to bring chaos backto the pedal. I rode the first ones and even a few more. Much better on controlled streets not where walker’s, runners and even bikes going the other way. Hope it all works out.
