Be very careful with streetcar tracks 🙂
This particular street has no bike accommodations. There is also construction and lane closures make the street very difficult for cyclists. Typically the median (or as we call it, the neutral ground) is a good (enough) path BUT its built exclusively for street cars. There are 2 tracks. This is the second time i've had issues with this exact spot but today it was very wet and my rear tire lost traction. I was able to bail on the bike and suffered no harm nor injury. Proper bike accommodations would have prevented this.
