Opinion: Taos County needs bike paths

Posted

I would like to comment on the virtual nonexistence of bike paths in Taos County. I have traveled far and wide, and the only place I have seen with fewer bike paths than Taos is Antarctica. It seems that the decision-makers in Taos do not appreciate how much people, locals and tourists alike like to bicycle when there are safe and scenic routes. Taos has the biking scenery, but not the biking safety.

In the days of yore, I bicycled from Arroyo Seco to Taos High to attend school. I would never do that now due to the danger of bicycling on our roads. Please encourage our politicians to see the family-friendly, tourist-attracting, safe and traffic-reducing benefit of bike paths. A quick trip to most any Colorado town will exemplify this.
