Floyd Ave. and Bike to Work Day Celebration

18 May

The Floyd Avenue Bike-Walk Street project is close to completion, so it’s time to celebrate.  If I’m not mistaken, there are a few finishing touches still to do, especially putting in the special signage that was promised to mark the street as more for people on foot and bike.  In my view we still need diverters at a couple of spots to reduce the traffic volume a bit more, but we’ll come back to that.  It’s not perfect; but it’s definitely worth celebrating.

So, Bike Walk RVA is celebrating this first-ever (but by no means last) bike walk street in combination with Bike to Work Day this Friday 5/20.  See the invite here and rsvp if you can. It all starts off bright and early at 7:30 a.m. at Sydney Park, intersection of Floyd AVe. and Morris St. (now I know what that little park is called!).  There will be coffee and treats courtesy of Lamplighter.  Ribbon cutting at 8 a.m., cruise the bike walk street at 8:15, and then coffee with the mayor at Ellwood Thompson’s Beet Cafe at the other end of Floyd.

Hope to see you there.
