"I had an addition to the idea that Southern might be a good avenue for a bike trail - I notice that there are quite a few med students who seem to bike from the LSUS Med Center to the Highlands and South Highlands area. Many move here for school, and they are used to biking in their hometowns. One of the professors lives on my street. He bikes to the hospital daily. Although Kings Hwy is a mess, St. Vincent and other streets behind the hospital have ample room for a bike trail.
"To comment further on Sharon Swanson's comments, our family traveled to Cypress Bend on Toledo Bend a few weekends ago, and couldn't help but notice the bike trails on Hwy 171. What was once shoulder, is now paved and marked. Interesting concept."
