But back to the topic at hand ...

I cycle all over the lower city, and I never take the alleys. Yet the alleys make for convenient and safe cycling routes, Kevin tells us. I'm inclined to believe Kevin.

So I am led to ask myself again: why don't I ever take the alleys? I think that it's because: 1) I don't know where they go; 2) I don't know what the surfaces are like; 3) I don't know what the rules are; 4) google maps ignore them; 5) they seem weird :)

In particular, I'm quite intrigued by the idea of giving the alleys name: you can more easily talk about things with names; things with names seem real and more friendly; I can call the city as say "Alley X" has some terrible pot holes.

I'm quite looking forward to riding the alleys at the two events ... and maybe exploring a bit on my own.
