Issues: bike concern
New Hampshire 1a Portsmouth, NH 03801, USA
Bridge does not provide for safe passage for cyclists. Steel grated bridge causes numerous accidents for cyclists each year. Sidewalk contains a job in the middle creating an additional hazards. The solution to this issue is not to have cyclists walk their bikes but rather accomodate cyclists and fix the bridge roadway surface. Steel grating are unsafe and a better solution needs to be provided to allow safe passage for children and adults to enjoy the roads

Railroad tracks at an angle to the direction of the road. The tracks are bare and do not have any smoothing to help a bicycle to cross the tracks. To ride perpendicular to the tracks, a rider must use the entire lane to safely cross the tracks.

Sagamore Road Heading Into Rye
Sagamore is one of 5 roads leading into Rye. It is also a main route of the state bicycle network for commuting between Portsmouth and towns to the south. The road here is narrow with no shoulder. Hills hide cyclists from cars. Thus a car can crest a hill and suddenly be faced with a cyclist in the road out of need due to the lack of any shoulder. This area is an accident waiting to happen.
1A is part of the Seacoast Greenway. It is also a part of the "New Castle" loop used by scores of cyclists and runners on any given day. As cyclists travel towards New Castle the road narrows just past the marinas as it goes up the hill towards the Ice House. This is a busy stretch of road in the summer due to the Ice House and Wentworth Golf Course.
1a Along Portsmouth Cemetery
This stretch of NH 1A is a main link of the state bicycle network between Portsmouth and Rye, N. Hampton, Hampton and points south. However, the road here is horrid. There is quite a large shoulder on the cemetery side of the road, however it is full of potholes, drainage grates and broken pavement. However, cars expect a bicycle to ride on the shoulder here and often express their frustration with their horns when cyclists are in the road as they have to be in order to ride safely. I gave up bicycle commuting to work in Portsmouth because of this stretch of road.
Sagamore bridge is a well known hazard to cyclists. While a Share the Road sign isn't called for here. It's my understanding that these notes will be passed on to local officials. This is my vote for putting in a bridge that is safe to ride over.
15th And Spruce Philadelphia, PA
Steel plates have gaps that are a hazard to cyclists; cones are in the ped crossing. It's a mess.

There are multiple pavement patch depressions in the roadway and bike lane every 10 feet or so on 16th Avenue South/Music Square East and 17th Avenue South/Music Square West that make it difficult/dangerous to use the bike lanes. These streets should be repaved.

A bike lane is needed between the existing Clinton Ave. and Orange Street bike lanes. If you agree click, "I want this fixed too” and comment. Pictures welcomed. We especially want to hear from folks currently biking from Chatham Square Neighborhood to any place north of the Green or beyond. Come on people we can get this! Here is one proposed route:
