Cobbs Creek Bikeway Video

Here is a well done video tour of the Cobbs Creeks Bikeway



One interesting aspect of the video is that a motorcyclist passes on this highly underused trail. Is this a chicken and the egg problem here? Does the presence of ATV's discourage trail use or would the ranks of motorized users decline if there were a sufficient number of walkers and bicyclists.

Speaking a woman riding alone, the video says it all. It's not safe for me.

I'm curious what you saw in the video that makes you think it wouldn't be safe to ride alone? There is one stretch between Baltimore Ave. at 61st and Cobbs Creek Parkway (where it goes under the railroad trestle) that is out of the view of roads and houses. Is that what you mean?

As to the ATV question, I put the clip of the scooter in there because every time I ride out there, I do see motor vehicles on the path. They do seem to be very respectful of walkers and cyclists, however. There are these collapsible bollards that would prevent some of this usage if they were ever extended properly, but as it is, I can't explain why the path gets so little use.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
