    Richmond off-topic postings

    I took the 61 yesterday morning during the demolition, and every and myself watched out the window as the operator of the claw ripped through Old McDonald. It was glorious, if only they'd do it to the new one located catty-corner.

    Richmond Region Transportation

    https://www.facebook.com/captrailbikeshuttle/ This is bike/transportation relevant, so I'll just post here. The new Capital Trail Bike Shuttle is having an introduction/opening event at Triple Crossing in Fulton on Sunday from 2:00pm-? This will offer cyclists (and maybe pedestrians) transportation to and from various points along the trail so folks won't have to worry about getting back to their starting destination. it doesn't launch til some point in April, so they're just promoting it Sunday and giving more information.

    Manchester Development

    Talk about Manchester development; here's an article by the Valentine with lots of images and an in-depth history of Manchester's growth as its own city and then a part of Richmond's Southside. Manchester: From Sister City to South Richmond Here's a picture of the old 9th St. Bridge, the James River Free Bridge.

    Thanks for the share. I am quite sure that studies have shown that the addition of bike lanes increases accessibility to sidewalk businesses... plus they aren't planning on reducing parking lanes, just travel lanes.

    Ooo la la. Didn't know they were going to have a rooftop pool. Wonder when the season extends and how that will function in terms of accessibility.

Community conversations should be arranged, but these plans have been in the bike master plan since 2015... Thoughts? Personally I would love if the bike lane that take from 2nd to the Belvidere Bridge were extended through the city to my apartment.

    Something like this would have been a lovely addition to the BRT in making Broad St. an inclusive multimodal street.

    http://captrailbikeshuttle.com/ Good news for the cap trail!
  11. Thought a thread for bicycle-related infrastructural and program developments seemed appropriate. Post any news related cycling in Richmond. Also, feel free to share any articles that were previously shared in broader threads here on bicycles. Just resharing the article on the bike-share program coming to Richmond because I came across another curious article (see 2nd link) on how Milwaukee's bike-share program teamed up with their Housing Authority in order to ensure accessibility to lower- and low income neighborhoods. http://www.richmond.com/news/article_63ad34d7-37d2-569e-91f5-a8c0fd2ec28e.html http://www.streetsblog.net/2016/07/11/milwaukee-bike-share-teams-up-with-housing-authority-on-system-expansion/
