" The urban trails are a little different than a typical bike lane because they are more inclusive of multiple modes of transportation that one might be taking. Whether you are walking, running, riding a bike, roller skating, skateboarding, whatever it is, these trails are meant to be suitable for all of those activities. They are meant to be friendly for people of all ages and abilities. They are wide enough to accommodate that social biking component that you don't get with a traditional bike lane."
