So, this was an interesting tour.

I knew that some - though not all - of these alleys existed, but I never really ventured down them, for a number of reasons ... * I didn't know how far they went * I didn't know the surface conditions (the alley behind my own house is almost unridably bumpy) * I didn't know if I would find myself trapped at the end on a one-way street going the wrong way (a problem with many of the side streets in those neighbourhoods, too)

All of the alleys we rode on were just fine, with surfaces ranging from smooth concrete to patchy gravel.

I was surprised to find myself at intersections of alleys - something that made quite clear the network that the alleys form.

I was also surprised to note how hard the alleys can be to see from the road - they often look like driveways until you are right in front of them.

Names and signs would make all the difference in the world. What would it take to have the city take on this rather small project?
