As an avid bike rider, I’m wondering when bike lanes will be put into place on Del Prado Avenue between Copper Lantern and Golden Lantern. There are currently no bike lanes traveling south or north on Del Prado in that section. This is surprising, since the town center area off Del Prado is supposed to be much more walking/bike friendly.
In addition, the bike lanes on Pacific Coast Highway are much more dangerous. There is very little room for bikers’ safety when car doors open or cars park, and a much smaller space between traveling cars and bikers.
As a biker, I challenge decision makers to create Dana Point as a bicyclist haven.
I want to encourage all of those involved in designing our city going forward to read www.activelivingresearch.org.
