It's about time! I was concerned that they would never do it, since it's theoretically a "dead-end" street. My wife and I rode through last Saturday and it was a delicious surprise.

My home town had bike registration stickers- you could get them at City Hall or through the bike shop where I worked. I think there was a $1 fee for the service- I don't think it was mandatory.

For me, Denver Ave. both ways is the best choice. Granted, the pavement sucks, and the crossing under I-5 (aka "Victory Blvd.") really sucks, but I've never had an issue. Going northbound sometimes I...
