The Midtown Bike Route runs from downtown to Springdale Blvd near I-65 through neighborhoods between Dauphin St and Airport Blvd/Government St. The route, however, is poorly marked and has missing directional signs and awareness signs. Also, many of the roads on the route are in dire need of new pavement. (Map of Bike Route)
Bike Parking Downtown
Downtown has a lack of bicycle parking. While it is true that bikes can be locked to any light pole or column, this is far from ideal. Designated bicycle racks provide a clear place for people to park, but they also are designed so that bikes stand upright and are less likely to fall when locked. Appropriately placed bike racks in front of restaurants, bars and coffee shops encourage the use of cycling to go short distances, people who chose to bike downtown instead of driving will help alleviate parking shortages.
Full Use of Road signage along midtown/downtown streets
Team Share the Road as a 501c3 is accepting donations to pay for signs to be put up on Old Shell Rd and Schillinger Rd. They are working with the City of Mobile Traffic and Engineering to have the signs installed.
