Ideas for San Antonio's Urban Core- Riverwalk elevated bike lanes. ETC.

An elevated bike lane like this one in Copenhagen would be really cool for the Riverwalk starting from the Zoo, Brackenridge Park, Wittie Museum, making its way through the Pearl, Museum Reach, a portion of the central Riverwalk, King William Riverfront, all the way to the Mission Reach. Linking San Pedro Creek would be a great idea as well.

Something like this would definitely attract even more development and residents to the urban core especially to River North. Visitors to the city would find Riverwalk attractions easier to get to. The Riverwalk is 15 miles long so this would make things easier to get to for residents and visitors.

I'm all for this. It gets pretty annoying when you're walking the riverwalk and you have to make way for the bicyclist to ride past you

How about let's get a decent conventional bike lane network before we build things like that....

I actually disagree, I think things like this are better thn conventional bike lanes, because they're dedicated infrastructure and they become notable landmarks in your city when nobody else has them (and, let's be real: this type of thing WOULD be unique in the US). AND they're safer, not just for bicyclists themselves, but also for pedestrians and cars.

I like it! I hate sharing the roads with bikes.
This idea is really cool! So cool, I might ride a bike more often.

I like the idea. However, how appropriate is it to build "now" or in the "near" future?
