Opa Locka Bike Lanes

Opa-Locka, the city known mostly for it's Moorish architecture, poverty and crime, and infamous ban on saggy pants, can now add bike lanes to it's list.

Unfortunately most cyclists in the area never utilize the bike lanes, instead they choose to ride on the sidewalk or the shoulder of the road. I think I've seen more people walking shopping carts against traffic in the bike lane than actual bicycle commuters.

The bike lanes are on the following roads:

NW 22nd Ave, between NW 119th Street and NW 151st St *
Ali Baba Ave, between NW 22nd Avenue and NW 37th Avenue
Perviz Avenue, between Oriental Blvd and Dunvad Ave
Opa-Locka Blvd, between NW 22nd Ave & NW 17th Ave

* Ends briefly between Rutland St and Ali Baba Blvd (while crossing SR9/Tri-Rail tracks)

For the most part the bike lanes are free of hazards or debris, however broken glass can often be found outside the apartment complex east of Segal Park (NW 22nd Ave/Wilmington St).

If you're familiar with Opa-Locka you will definitely get a kick out of this clip from the 1968 documentary "Salesman".
