What's up in the Neighborhood

The NeighborhoodAmong the topics in this most recent spin around the Capital Region's online neighborhood: face ripping, prayer, Roy McDonald, the hall of fame, Mountain Jam, Oakwood Cemetery, drooling over abs, a trail run, pork, the first CSA box, trust, beer, meat markets, eggs, Schoharie County, rock climbing, a rescued duckling, and garbage.

Tried them out yesterday on my bike. It felt SO much safer than the rest of Madison. And guess what? Where it's 4 lanes, I had to take up a whole lane anyway because there is not enough space. This will definitely encourage others to ride bikes. And I have not seen any additional traffic. It's astonishing that in 2016 Albany still only has 2 bike lanes. We need lots more!
