Thank you to Dan Walters, whose commentary was in the Sept. 17 issue of The Tribune. I agree with just about everything he said about the responsibility of bicyclists, many of whom could use a few lessons on the legality of their habits when bike riding.
On my way home, I passed two couples riding side by side on Foothill Boulevard, before they entered the city. Even though the new bike lanes are about 6 inches wider than the old ones (check out the remnants of the former white lines where there is amanhole), when two riders are side by side, the body of the inside rider is mostly over the line into the traffic lane. That’s too dangerous in my book.
By the way, these riders were chatting with each other and didn’t look like they were paying much attention to the vehicle traffic.
