Bicyclist thankful for paving

thankful for paving My hearty congratulations to whoever at King County facilitated paving the shoulders of Avondale Road! A simple two-day task has opened up new vistas of bicycling opportunities for those of us living along that road.
   When we moved to the Cottage Lake area recently, we were disappointed when we realized how isolated our bicyling opportunities were. The mere act of paving the shoulder lets me bike to work in Redmond across Woodinville-Duvall Road and down the Sammamish River Trail, then ride home up Avondale.
   On behalf of all bicyclists who live along Avondale, thanks! To the automobile commuters, keep an eye out for us, please. Better yet, join us!
