New MUP in New Orleans City Park - failure for cyclists. (VIDEO)
I have been anxiously awaiting the addition of a beautiful new MUP/fitness path in New Orleans City Park. Been watching the construction for nearly a year. It was completed in February this year, and from the very first day, I knew it was a failure for most cyclists.
Speed limit on the path is 10MPH, so it is not a workout area for bikes. It does create a "relaxing" shortcut for me as a connecting route between two other bike path and allows me to avoid the more heavily trafficked (and parking car mayhem) at the museum area. However, wanting to strangle (figure of speech) a dozen people every time I use it defeats the purpose. I have given up. I had also hoped to skate this loop trail. Not gonna happen.
I created this "tribute" to the new bike path as a way to vent. Sent a link to City Park Administration too.
