Henrico what are you doing?

By the map in the article it seems that there are neither very much existing or planned routes in Henrico.
It is shocking that there are no bike routes or sharrows in the works given the number of pedestrians and cyclists on the roads. Since Richmond has been so effective and thoughtful in its alternative transport infrastructure, Henrico should follow suit by building connecting and complimentary infrastructure now.

Chesterfield is Misleading

It's nice to see all of the nice orange lines on the Chesterfield map. However, if the proposed bike lanes are like the bike lanes introduced on Route 10 last year, then the bike lanes will be unusable. They are too narrow and full of sand and gravel. Poorly designed bike lanes cause an issue. It leads those that don't bike to believe the county wasted money and we don't need bike lanes because they aren't being used. As a average biker, I feel they wasted money because they didn't design a bike lane that an average person can ride in. I am hoping the proposed bike lanes don't repeat the past.

Bike lanes or sharrows?

Looking at the map, I'm trying to picture the bike lanes on the map in Richmond. Is this counting sharrows as bike lanes?

Must be bike "routes"

It must be counting bike routes. I can say for sure some of those lines are on streets without dedicated bike lanes.
