Commuting in Yakima, WA
Hello all,
My husband and I are new to bicycle commuting and was wondering if anyone has any advice regarding commuting in Yakima, WA. So far, biking around town has been interesting, but overall a good experience. There are some bike routes, but no bike lanes per-say. Cars seem respectful of cyclists, especially on the slower rds (20-25 mph). Also, are there any areas that we should avoid when it's dark out?

What is your commute? I lived there from '89 to '91, so the place has changed since then. I lived on south 9th Ave. and worked on north third street, so went maybe two miles to work. I thought the traffic was pretty lousy, and usually I just walked to and from work.

I'd recommend getting out on your bike and trying to hook up with local riders.

But most of all, experiment with potential routes. Try it at different times of the day -- start with lower traffic.
