A bike route suggested by the new "by bicycle" feature of the world's most popular search engine has 21 steps to go seven miles to the Downtown Phoenix Public Market. I submit to the reader that a route with 21 steps in 7 miles has some room for optimization. I believe this trip can actually be accomplished on established bike routes in 3 steps, centering on the glory that is E Washington St on the map above. Yes it's not the most straight-line route, but you can fly down that street on a bike. Get up. Go ride.
