Suggestions For The Bike Path From Marginal Pinheiros

Bike path from Marginal Pinheiros: the question of access is essential for it to become useful.

Happens today, 05 October at 2:30 pm, a public hearing on the bike path from Marginal Pinheiros. The goal is to hear suggestions from cyclists to.

The meeting is open and will be at the Palace of the Bandeirantes – AV. Morumbi, 4500, in the press room (2nd floor). Cyclists who are the meeting may enter through Gate 2, in the Morumbi Avenue, and park beside the greenhouse.

The schedule is complicated for me and unfortunately I can’t be there, but I know that the ideas that will be very well represented by several other cicloativistas who share the same vision.

If you can, show up and help show that mobility by bicycle interests a lot of people in São Paulo. The presence of cyclists at this meeting is very important. You’re going to have people coming out of the rider’s Square (Paulista with Consolation) to 1:00 pm. Bike, of course.

Suggestions

Though I couldn’t attend, here are my suggestions:

Lighting and operation during the night
If you’re going to go back and forth from work, you have to be able to use at night. You can’t ask out at 4:00 pm with the argument that otherwise the bike lane closes at 6:00 pm, right?
-Access
If you only have one in each end, or if even though several they are not easy to use, the bike path will not have much use, the cyclists will prefer to go outside, even at risk. And, like a lot of people commented out there (and here too), access to USP will be extremely helpful. A lot of people are going to bike to the University City and the bike path will pass on the side, underneath the bridge to carry that name.
-The bike path Signage
when we have access, it would be interesting to have the bike path signage indicating exits and which neighborhoods and train stations nearby. As those green cards that exist on the streets to help car drivers, but obviously doesn’t need to be huge like that, it just needs to be visible. In the case of the train station, indicate whether she has
bike rack. -OUT
bike path Signage to indicate to the cyclist there is a bike path in the middle there and it can be used, indicating the nearest access (next access to 200 m, on the bridge). Otherwise you’re going to have a lot of cyclist does not follow the news, you won’t know who has a bike lane there and will continue traveling by Marginal Pinheiros. Great opportunity for the Government to do the marketing work and be useful at the same time. And also serves to show the driver the one cyclist is there because it’s going to a access, honk or play the car over which he has no way to fly away to the bike path.
-Speed limit Signage on bike path
That? What do you mean? Speed limit for the bike? … Is not for drivers of EMAE, since the bike path will be shared with the cars and trucks of the company’s service. I believe that 30 km/h would be a safe limit. Driving with lights on, can also contribute to security.
-Bathrooms and water fountains
think it’s cool to have toilets every two miles, even if that chemical toilet nojentão (better start peeing to everything is singing). And put up a sign: bathroom. And next to the toilets must have water fountains also, which may be in the style of those of the Ibirapuera Park.
-Gas station
the idea of a gas station at the end of the bike path, which was commented by the CPTM on the day of the inspection, is great. For small repairs of flat type, adjustment of gears and brakes, broken chain, etc. In fact, I think I could have it on all the city’s public bike racks, but anyway.

And the most important

More than a bike lane that caters to a specific path, what we need is to start moving to end the widespread idea that the solution to bike is only bike lane and bikelane. Otherwise what is already happening: there’s cyclist commenting on driver that sends out the street and screams that it’s only Sunday, even where there is path of the bikelane. I’ve heard goes to bike trail in place or bike path has.

Bike path is good to protect the rider from quick traffic, but has a very dangerous side effect which is the dissemination of the misconception that that place is the only bike in bike path, resulting in motorists who threaten the lives of cyclists thinking even if they’re right. This is the biggest danger to the rider in the streets, greater even than the drivers who commit speeding, because a driver misinformed and ignorant of these puts at risk the life of a cyclist just to prove that you’re right (and not even). This combat only with clarification campaigns and signalling on main roads (such as the Paulista for example), indicating the presence of bicycles in traffic. But no one speaks.

See some small actions that would make much difference for Bicyclist Safety in the streets.
