Bike lane all but certain at intersection of Alpine and I-280, where cyclist died

Original post made on Mar 2, 2011

A bike lane design similar to that at Sand Hill Road and Interstate 280 is under consideration for Alpine Road as it approaches I-280. At that intersection, on Nov. 4, cyclist Lauren Ward died after a collision with a tractor trailer.

sadfsf,

I would prefer allowing gas to float to its real price of roughly $7 per gallon and making driving 1 mile in a monster SUV to drop your kids off to school treason for aiding and abetting America hating terrorists.

Alas, I guess we don't always get what we want do we?

happyfsf is right on.

sadfsf probably just wants to stir things up, but statements like that shouldn't be left without a response. Get over it folks, bikes are here to stay.

heh $7 wouldn't affect me at all
I would happily pay it, and i don't have a monster SUV

in fact, i would pay $50 bucks a day to make all bicycling illegal. How about that?

This is one of the worst intersections that I use. You also have bike riders going toward Stanford on the other side of Alpine along with walkers.
