Ride Boldly!

Bikes, bicycling, and road safety.

Update: Washington Avenue Bridge

In the comments of my last post – concerning repairs to the U of Minnesota’s bridge over Washington Avenue – Hugh states that the bridge can be ridden over.

Actually, it can’t. The University has asked that bicyclists dismount and walk over the bridge. Due to many students and other users not doing so, they plan to have the Kampus Kopz write $80 tickets to users caught cycling over the bridge.

The U expect the restrictions to be in place throughout the school year.
