Safer passage can be found

Re: Vicious cycle…, Oct. 6 letters.

I empathize with letter-writer Bryant Avery on the difficulty of cycling safely through South Surrey.

Being an avid cyclist, I have spent some time scouting out safer routes.

Travel between Semiahmoo Mall and Morgan Crossing is reasonably safe along 24 Avenue and 154 Street.

Morgan Crossing to 1,000 Steps or Crescent Beach is safer along 24 Avenue, 154 Street to 18 Avenue. Use the latter to cross 152 Street past the library, then duck onto Southmere Crescent. You can exit on 18 Avenue, cross through the Semiahmoo Secondary parking lot, and you’ll find a footpath through the woods that reconnects to 18 Avenue. By following 18th and Amblewood Green Drive you can swing north to 20 Avenue, beyond those curb outcroppings that appear to serve no purpose other than to shove cyclists out into traffic. Once on 20 Avenue, the cyclist can use 124 Street/Ocean Park Road to access the beaches.

A final word of thanks to the majority of motorists who guard my life by giving me lots of space.

In return, I stay as close to the curb as possible and use proper hand signals. I wish all cyclists did.
