Dear Editor:

In response to Kate Bennetts letter to the editor in the July 10th edition of the Columbia Valley Pioneer regarding cycling Highway 95: although it is great to see people active with cycling, jogging, whatever the sport may be… doing these activities on Highway 95 on the first long weekend after a long, long winter is not the place to be.

Motorists respect the bicyclists because we have to. I would love to see a bicycle/walking path put in place on that pass so we can all travel safely and enjoy the scenery at the same time.

I travel that pass at least twice a month. As I have enjoyed a specific view that has captured my attention, Ive nearly collided with cyclists.

I have been driving for over 40 years and have never been in an accident. I consider myself to be a superb motorist; the cyclists on Highway 95 frighten me as I strongly feel the inevitable (disaster) will happen. Lets get a path built up there.
