Fifth Avenue's road diet up the hill takes up a main stretch in the Bike Loop Mayor Faulconer and Councilman GLoria officially opened on May 27th.

Commuter and visitor traffic near A Street, the street at the bottom of the path marked with green, and white, wayfaring signs, leaves the bicyclists little room. On the dedicated bike lane north of Elm Street that replaced drivers left lane, white lines block off traffic on the block lengths.

Safe riding depends on steady riding inside the lane, and timely stops taken before the intersection. Cars cross the lines near the stops.

The speedy traffic keeps long distance trips on the Fifth Avenue Bike Loop lanes open to needs for fast adjustments.
