Palo Alto should also consider re-establishing the Palo Alto Criterion, a bike race held on Hanover off Page Mill Road back in the 1970s.

Is anything being done about bike thefts?

I have read of several families and others who used to ride bikes frequently no longer do so as repeated bike thefts have caused issues.

When a bike is stolen, it is not just the cost and inconvenience of replacing a bike, but the theft usually occurs away from home and that causes additional inconvenience to the person who has to find another way to get home or to their next destination.
