What do you like and what do you not like about biking in Natomas?
There needs to be one direct bike path from north natomas to downtown Sacramento (ie The BlueDiamond factory or somewhere) that doesn't cross so many busy streets. Perhaps a couple bikebridges placed high over busy roads. Also, the bike trails are starting to get big cracks in them. For instance, next to the Kohl's in north natomas the bike lane is really cracked a lot!!! I am always afraidof the cars when I'm in the bike lane. Riding my bike from east Del Paso road over I-5 to West DelPaso road is scary with all the traffic!I love the trails, bike lanes--mostly trails, wandering through pretty trees with small lakes. They are justgreat.I need my own bike, that's the problem. Now, I borrow my wife'sI enjoy the many pathways off the street for biking.
ood trails, too many crosswalks, would like more bike trails, more info for people on where bike trailsare Like the trail links to am river Frequently windy, which is no fun to bike in. The architecture doesnot adequately shield a lot of the wind.Problem - don't have a bike. If I did I would rarely if ever ride on city streets - drivers are simply crazy.I like that there are trails, but it would be nice to see a better connected network with route signs, andalso more places to lock bikes up at businesses.Safety at night is a concern.I like the bike lanes and feel pretty safe riding, even when the bike lane drops but I wish the bike laneswere kept clean, not just on Truxel (my daily commute) but all over.Lots of good bike lanes, but many in N. Natomas dead end. The new biking bridge connects to thebike trail, but it dead ends at W. El Camino. Having to dog-leg to cross W. El Camino seemsfoolish....can't this be fixed?Do like: riding a bike in the neighborhoods is very pleasant. Most drivers are courteous to thebicyclists. Do not like: The overpass on San Juan over I-80 is still very dangerous for bicyclists. I ridemy bike there 3-4 times a week on my way to work, and notice that cars drive very fast.I wish we could go everywhere on our bikes. But there's a lot of traffic and cars go by fast on DelPaso. I have young kids and I'm still afraid of taking them on the overpass on Del Paso so instead of biking to the North Natomas library we drive :(Many bike lanes have gaps in them. It is always better then bike lanes have continous pavementpaths, so I would hope the short gaps can be quickly funded and completed.Like the many bike paths, bike lines, trees and parks. Wish there were trees planted along the EastLevee bike path. That would make it a great workout/commuter route but no shade is hardly bearableduring the warmer months.A few good bike trails and a few bike lanes make it helpful to get from place to place. Crossing I-5 isdifficult (I do it daily on my way to work) as it requires merging across traffic that is accelerating ontothe freeway. Other places, the bike lane just ends. A fully interconnected system of bike lanes/pathswould be helpful. Also, it is sometimes difficult to find a "parking" space for my bike at businesses
