Biking to West Side
We’ll have extra bike racks located near swimmer drop-off and along Medical Circle on the north side of the YMCA. (See map.)
One bike route to keep in mind: the Beltline bike path, on the north side of the Beltline begins by the YMCA next to Whitney Way. It can be easily be reached from the west and north:
- from Tokay by crossing the Odana stoplight and going through the Smart Motors lot (good for access from Ultratec/Captel parking)
- from Research Park Blvd by crossing the Odana stoplight and going past the Nile Restaurant / Fast Signs
- from Grand Canyon Drive at the trailhead by the Radisson Hotel.
Of those, Grand Canyon Dr is very low-stress. It’s just 5 min by bike or 25 min by foot to West Side with no need to cross Odana or Whitney Way. There’s a small city lot and plenty of on-street parking right at the path.
(Thanks to All-City parent, Craig Weinhold, for the tips about the Beltline bike path!)
