Over the weekend, an Oak Cliff resident was struck and injured while riding his bike across the Jefferson Boulevard Viaduct. This has absolutely nothing to do with the Park Cities, but it got me thinking.
Do the Park Cities need bike lanes?
I ride my bike pretty regularly, but I try to stick to roads that are, a.) pretty wide, and b.) off the beaten path. I, for instance, would never ride on Oak Lawn Avenue or Preston Road, and spend as little time as possible on Mockingbird. If there were bike lanes, though, I’d probably ride on one of those three at least once a week.
With more and more residents choosing to ride their bikes to work instead of drive their cars, is something the Park Cities need? Or is it just something for Dallas?
