    I hope Segment A, D, & E in Renton is completed soon. It’s too dangerous to commute to Bellevue from Burien via bicycle because of parts of Tukwila and Renton. I’ve done it and would like to do it again but not with as dangerous as it is now.

      I sometimes commute from Issaquah – everything is fine until you hit Rainier Ave. in Renton. From there its kind of scary – little to no bike lanes, or paths. Burien itself is not very bike friendly.

    I ran the new section this afternoon and other than the loose dogs that ran across the street to chase me and the vodka bottle that someone had broken it’s a nice path way. You do have to suck a fair bit of car exhaust between the Sunnydale tavern and 156th tho’.
