The city of San Jose installed eight miles of extra-wide bike lanes on downtown streets last summer. Nearly half a year later, some downtown residents complain that sidewalk bicycling is still a problem.
Los Altos City Council will vote on Feb. 9 to approve plans to revitalize 1st Street. Although construction is not scheduled until 2012, shop owners wonder if their stores will survive construction. And cycling advocates wish there’d be a bike lane.
