Readers’ comments: December 8, 2023
The ‘reality’ is people do want improved bike safety. I want to respond to a recent letter [“Bike lanes are a colossal waste of money,” December 1] to the Courier by Douglas Lyon. In his letter, Mr. Lyon paints a false reality. He claims a “… reality, which clearly indicates that no one wants to be out bicycling.” That is false based on facts. The facts are, my family and several of our friends love bicycling. I personally do it for recreation and I often ride my bike to the grocery store and downtown. My wife rides her bike to work every day. My kids used to ride the bikes to school, but I no longer want them to because of lack of safety. Over just a few years three horrific accidents occurred involving bicycles on my kids’ route to school. Two of those accidents (both on Mills Avenue) resulted in the riders’ death and the third in serious back injuries to the rider. This third accident involved a mom riding to pick her child up from day care. After learning of these accidents I don’t feel safe having my kids ride their bikes to school, which seems ridiculous in Claremont, where there is no school bus service.
