Do you ever get rly pissed because the hunger games films could’ve told such a deep story with themes that reflect our own society’s oppressive systems

It’s like a little highway just for bikes. In New York, these go up the main arteries in the city, and…

Great assessment, but in truth, the safe stretch of Schenley Drive extends no farther than the bridge piers. Going around Schenley Plaza is less harrowing than Fifth or Forbes, but it has the same problems as the rest of Schenley Park: High speeds, blind turns, and dooring risk.
