It might not be an official ‘cyclovia’ but the Department of Public Works opens Loch Raven Drive to people every Sunday afternoon. Just by closing two gates, the drive becomes accessible to walkers, cyclists, dogwalkers, rollerbladers and skateboarders. While there is no immediate economic benefits for businesses along this cyclovia and most users must drive to the starting points, this open street does allow people to enjoy the autumn colors. This area also becomes a great place to teach kids how to ride. The wide pavement, absence of motor traffic and (mostly) gentle rolling hills create the ideal location for new cyclists.
