The most hazardous block on the bike path


View Friends of Ocean Parkway in a larger map

It is not official but it is easy to see that the most hazardous block on the bike path runs from Avenue W to Avenue X.  There are numerous problems with the path including broken concrete, uneven pavement, and danagerously large butt bouncing faults.  You can see these areas on the map if you zoom to street view or view it in a larger map.  The markers indicate the hazardous spots along that one block route.  Proceed with caution.  We will examine the safety of the other blocks and report back to you.  We hope that the plan to rehabilitate the rest of malls will begin with this block.  It needs it desperately.
