Full description

In the morning we rode south on Grover from Justin Lane. There are no bike lanes. The street is very wide and my 8 year old rode next to me. Drivers went around us very fast but generally gave us room. At Koenig we had to go on the very narrow sidewalk, east and up a hill. The traffic going the other direction is VERY fast and if myself or my daughter fell she would likely be run over. On the way home in the afternoon I saw how many cars were speeding on Grover so I took her out of our way to Woodrow, went north on Woodrow, and then back over to Justin. Our city seems to prioritize driver convenience above all else, and there are not enough safe routes for average people to walk or bike.
