“There are three wheels, three tracks, when you ride a tricycle. It is important that the bicycle pathways are level so I can keep my balance. No potholes or manhole covers to drive into.”
Photographer’s notes: This is the ascent from the Gare Centrale to the Parc Royale. A wide, red pathway, clearly marked from bottom to top. There are also potholes, manhole covers, uneven terrain, broken pavement along the route.
When I ride it, I have to leave the bicycle path and use the car lanes to get to the top. In wet weather, the ride is considerably harder.
Now I might have a better sense of awareness about how these uneven surfaces and rough road conditions impact cyclists who are not as nimble on their bikes. And this is a busy road – not the place a cyclist wants to leave his place of greater safety.
