On your left!

For those that may have missed this memo released on February 18th, new “Rules & Courtesy” signs are going up along the American River Parkway to “encourage visitors to follow the rules and share the bike trail.”

“Our old courtesy signs were several years old and were showing their age,” said Flannery. “Our old signs also had a lot more wording, and because we realized that most trail users reasonably wouldn’t take the time to read the entire sign, we cut the words by half.”

And people still won’t read/follow them. Anyone that has had to do anything that involves people of any kind should know by now that you can’t win no matter what you do. On the Parkway, at the grocery store, you name it. People just suck.

This is about the time of year where the Parkway etiquette debate heats up. The Parkway, like The Sac Rag, follows the “if you live here, you know” slogan.

  1. There are “no bike” signs on the equestrian trails (the single track between the paved bike trail and the river), that are vandalized, missing, or otherwise tampered with.
    But whatever.
    Whoever put up the paper poster of Prefontaine on the water tank just upstream from the Howe Ave bridge is awesome. Well done.


  2. I think there should be a sign saying “NO yelling at children” to remind the fancy bikers that kids are going to go slowly and in the middle of their lane.
