We’ve had a lot of utility construction along the Hodgson path in Shoreview the past few weeks . Most of the companies have been quite good about not blocking the path. One company that couldn’t avoid having a truck in the path also did a good job of creating a little detour in to the street with cones for path users that was very much appreciated.
Yesterday, as I was riding down the path to lunch, I saw some guys from a new company moving their trucks out of the path.
As I rode by I thanked them and one of the guys commented “damn, a lot of people ride bikes here.”
He said he’d never seen anything like it. “Someone rides by here every couple of minutes.” he said with some bewilderment. He went on to describe the hundreds of school kids, people who looked like they must be 100 but were riding a bike, and everyone in between.
I guess Shoreview’s paths are working!
