Seems the route is not what many people were expecting. In case it’s a bit lost in the comment string, I’ve reposted my response here:
Many new riders *are* frightened to ride with traffic outside bike lanes. Nothing wrong with taking baby steps. Picking that route was to make it more accessible to people at all comfort levels.
Besides, the purpose of this ride is to take a positive action. That’s it.
Regardless of how you feel about the route, I hope that everyone who still believes in a peaceful, purposeful and respectful ride will be there with us on Friday!
