When the first diamond frame bicycles became popular in the 1890s they were often called "wheels" - the national cycling association was called the "League of American Wheelmen." We have moved from "wheels" to "bikes," but the bicycles have remained remarkably the same over more than 100 years - elegant in their efficiency and simplicity. And many of the issues that we think are new? They were around then too.

Detour Closed; Bike Trail Restored
The newly restored bike trail, from the new approach to the Humpback bridge
Detour is closed, new routing (much like the old) is restored with new asphalt
The new asphalt already continues across the new bike portion of the Humpback bridge.
I didn't take anyone's photo, but an amazing number of people ignored the open trail in front of them and slowed to turn up the detour and couldn't figure out that all they had to do was . . . continue up the open trail in front of them. Habit forms quickly, I guess.
