    I will not be able to attend this, but i live very close to this area.

    I would love to see an easy way to ride from the Pond to the arboretum. i avoid the casey overpass at all costs, since going down near Forest Hills seems somehow safer and less broken-glass ridden.

    The last point I’d like to make is about the the fencing at the Arboretum crosswalk. I will admit that it’s pretty ugly, but having it there also makes the crosswalk much safer, since people are otherwise inclined to just cut across. As someone who occasionally drives that road, I’d rather not have people coming across willy nilly.

    If you go, I’d be interested in reading an account.

    Cheers!
