Route 4: Northwest Blvd > Altamont

When thinking about The City as a concept, I generally picture a circle with a lightening gradient towards the edges, as a map of the daytime population density, dedicated parking spots, or lawyer's offices would likely show. So, to simplify, imagine a pizza. If you were to cut the pizza into sections to represent, say, ways to get from periphery to periphery, how would every person who has ever seen a round pizza cut it? Most likely, some variation of:

  1. North to south
  2. East to west
  3. Bisect those cuts with another (NW to SE, SW to NE)

Route 4: Northwest Blvd > Altamont is a cut from the lower northwest part of town to the upper southeast part of town.  This route is nearly directly east to west, only deviating to cross the river. A practical and necessary route that is totally unrepresented/unfulfilled in any functional way with our current public transportation options.

Best non-Downtown spot for a drink along the way: The Flying Goat. A real place to lock your bike up! A chill patio! A safe way to turn left into the establishment!
