Bike path plan too costly

Is writer Will Reisman aware that there is a perfectly good, safe bike route on Page Street that is parallel to and one block away from the dreaded “jam-packed” Oak Street (Bike plan rolling into City Hall,” Monday)?

The big problem seems to be a one-block section between Baker and Divisadero streets (westbound) or Oak and Page streets (eastbound) where there is a little hill. Spending $1.26 million just because these “cyclists” can’t ride up a one-block hill? How about using these funds to repave some of the abysmal, potholed streets instead?

I have used this path for more than 40 years and find it very satisfactory at age 70.
