Bike Friendly Richardson

New Bike Lanes On Waterview Drive

Posted in Bike Change, Bike Trails and Routes, City Stuff by dickdavid on July 24, 2010

Based on the Richardson Bike Route Plan (downloadable pdf), we were expecting this. It’s still a nice surprise to see them actually getting done. If you happen to go down Waterview Drive between Arapaho and Belt Line, you’ll see one less lane for driving (each direction) and a new one dedicated for bikes (and parking). These bike lanes are expected to stretch from Campbell, all the way south to Spring Valley. Way to go, Richardson.

Even if you have mixed feelings about having bike lanes, you’ve got to remember that these serve more than just creating safer routes for bicyclists, they also serve as a way to slow down traffic through Richardson neighborhoods.

You can also read about other Richardson bike lanes here and here.

We will keep you posted as we discover more bike friendly routes around town.
