I think all businesses along the path should have smooth routes onto their property. They don't seem to be aware that it would increase the number of customers they'd get. With that said, yay for the DIY perp who put in the ramp at TJs! You asked if anyone had done anything similar, I haven't done anything for bikes, but I did cut a 2 mile long hiking trail 20 years ago. I didn't ask permission so it was totally illegal. After it was there for a few years, it was seen to be a good addition to the trail system by the powers-that-be and they installed an official sign on it. I laughed like crazy the day I first saw that sign.
