Still need a shoulder to ride (cry) on

To the editor:

I know that I should be glad for recent new paving on Route 73. And I wish to thank everyone who made that happen.

But, how does it keep happening without adding bike lanes?

Every study and every Zoning Code, the Comprehensive Plan and the Complete Streets plan says bike lanes are a necessity. So, how do they not get done?

Who makes that decision?

Whether you ride a bike on these roads or just want the bike people out of the way, the solution is more room for the bikes.

Before you line up against me-yes, I know these roads are "primarily" for cars and trucks. I just hope someday everyone using our roads will be able to do so safely.
