Some bicyclists want bike lanes all over Los Alamos and our county council has accommodated many of their desires. Indeed, the entire stretch of Diamond Drive is slated to be so marked when finished.
If bike lanes are created, they must be maintained in a manner that is safe and conducive to their actually being used. Unfortunately, bike lanes are seldom properly maintained. Right now, about the only clean part of most of the lanes along Diamond Drive is the foot or so next to the stripe where autos have “beaten a path.” So, bikers “ride the line” or venture into the auto lane. I believe that this creates a situation worse than folks “sharing the road.” Some would say that what we have now is not normal. Maybe, but I note that the less-than-proper conditions exists all year. Council has set aside bike lanes; motorists expect bikers to stay well inside those lanes, even if they have to “tip-toe” along.
