Westlake cycle track: No need for bike lane near an existing path

I simply do not understand why some people (mainly cyclists) are pushing for a bicycle track along Westlake Avenue North [“Good movement on stalled Westlake bike lane,” Opinion, June 14].

There are excellent, dedicated bike lanes, recently installed, along Dexter Ave North, which is just two blocks west of Westlake, and this route almost exactly parallels the proposed Westlake lanes. Why the need for duplication of what is already there? It would be a waste of taxpayer money and of much-needed parking.

I hope the reason is not that Westlake is somewhat flatter than Dexter, which has a mild grade. After all, don’t people cycle in part for the exercise?
