"issues with bike lanes" in them selves I truly have no issue, what is the issue is building bike lanes that are not utilized...Perhaps what should be done is that counters should be place on the present bike lanes to calculate the amount of use. As a tax payer I have no issue with creating bike lanes that meet community needs; but I am opposed to creating such to accommodate one or two cyclists per day. I do agree that bike lanes in the downtown should be a priority based on realistic usage. Neither am I opposed to bikes on back road but the roads need to designated as bike routs with proper road width to accommodate safe cycling including other traffic. I also agree that as demand increases that when roads are repaved or updated serious consideration based on all traffic roads should be designed accordingly.
