In the winter months I use this route most of the time,
I leave at 5AM so traffic is never an issue. The pathway along Riverbend/Quarry Park and the Southland dog park are clear. Same for the path north of the dog park connecting to the 11th Street bike route. The bike route (11th) itself has some gravel but its in better shape then December.
I will add a report on the ride home tomorrow.
