Biking To Work
« on: December 02, 2020, 11:13:59 AM »

Jobs easily accessible by bike, so speak, in Jacksonville:

What they're really showing
"
The maps show 30-minute accessibility values at the Census block level. Lighter colors indicate few jobs can be reached within 30 minutes; darker colors indicate more jobs can be reached within 30 minutes. At the highest levels, more than 100,000 jobs are accessible by bike within 30 minutes.

I could bike to work inside 20 minutes. A ramble just Southwest of Riverside/ Avondale.
Treacherous. Skip it.
Although I have made the run via boat; Kayak and small outboard powered vessel.

I know so many that have moved from here to places more effectively positioned for Bike Use.

Jacksonville will catch up. Easy. A perfect Cycling Place. Eventually.
