What started as a very nice idea for the Hudson Valley has become a breeder for a new form of disrespect, and arrogance. These are the bicyclists ! They whiz around so close that if walk to the left or right for sight seeing, your safety is at total risk.
No Longer feel safe at any speed on the walkway.
Since I live on a bench on the walkway due to being taxed out of my home by the Dictator Cuomo, yes I have been on it every day so far.
Given that it's not even 3 weeks into 2015, and that it's been bitterly cold much of those 3 weeks, I have hardly had the chance or desire to go there because I don't wish to freeze to death. The better question may be, "Do you plan to go on the Walkway Over the Hudson?" If that were the question then my answer would be a resounding "yes".
The cold weather has slowed down my bridge walking, but I've managed to get about 5 days in so far.
The one and only time I've been on the walkway was in 2012.
It's only 20 days into 2015. Great question.
We went regularly with my dogs when the Walkway opened. Then we walked but drove over the bridge in order to enter from the New Paltz entrance. Then because of bike congestion and lack of consideration for pedestrians and concern for the startled dogs we stopped going.
