According to iowabikeroutes.com, Des Moines area trails consist of over 550 miles cycling including 170 miles of on-street cycle paths, which include 89.5 miles of bike lanes and shared markings, 23.2 miles of paved shoulders and 58 miles of quiet on-street riding and off street 224.5 miles of shared-use paths, both paved and unpaved. I chose to photograph the only protected two-way bike lane built in the northern part of Johnston, Iowa, USA, just north of the state capitol city of Des Moines. This lane connects residential neighborhoods along the west side of a large federal flood reservoir to the main city of Johnston. https://www.google.com/maps/@41.6919644,-93.6991181,3a,75y,90t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s37hXfMsgjNJPBpe6AopBYw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
