Yet another Stanford educated doctor rooting for Stanford - give it up already! There is a perfectly adequate bike lane in both directions throughout the county area. Menlo Park is getting a grant to fix its part of Alpine. There never has been a "lower Alpine Trail." That is a mere figment of Larry Horton's over active imagination. The late Mrs. Ward would never have used a bike path even if there had been one. The problem with Alpine Road is Stanford's over use, which it also committed itself to mitigate, yet has failed to do so. Stanford does not rule the world, not in San Mateo County, Los Altos Hills, or as it recently found out, in the Big Apple either. Stanford needs to act ethically and abide by its self imposed commitments.
