Cycling Network - Channel parkway
Good episode on bike lanes/ infrastructure. As a fairly new resident to Penticton I have never understood why the channel parkway is not maintained and beautified for walkers, runners, cylists and all the floaters during summer. It also could be a showpiece to motorists driving through town on the bypass. It is in disrepair along many lengths, and needs more shade trees added along the full route. Very shocking that a tourist city would allow it to fall apart like it has - its not a good look for Penticton. Would appreciate a follow up episode on this missed opportunity for City of Penticton and PIB.
