Bike Calgary’s infrastructure group recently did a ride to check out the (relatively) new bike route through East Village on 4 Street and Riverfront Lane SE.
What are people’s thoughts on this route – do you use it all the way through or stay on 4 Street SE to avoid the “jog”? Are there areas for improvement? My biggest frustration is with the signal timing at the new signalized crossings. These end up adding a couple of minutes to the route, and the signal at Riverfront Ave doesn’t work unless you push the button.
Is there video or images of this route available somewhere?
I used to cross 3rd St via 3rd Ave but I don’t recall a bike route so it’s hard to picture. Does it connect all the way up to Barclay Parade?
