"Finally! A way out!"

I like to go for leisurely bicycle rides along the estuary. From Tynan Avenue near where I work, you can roll onto a pedestrian and bicycle only path that affords really lovely views and only adds ten minutes to my commute.

The first time I attempted the scenic route, I noticed that I was coming closer and closer to a dead end with no way out. Then, suddenly, a smoothly paved path appeared on my right. Having more than enough time at my disposal to get lost, I hopped on Wind River Way to see where it took me. I was making a left onto Sherman in under a minute.

It's not a pretty street, but it's functional. It's even specifically set up for a cyclist to get down off the path, into the street, and to make an unprotected left into the Sherman Street bike lane without dismounting. That gives it the 4th star, no questions asked.
