Reader Wants Bike Lane on Charles St.

To the Editor:

As an 82-year-old cyclist on Beacon Hill, I would much appreciate a bike lane.

It is not easy getting on or off the Hill on a bike, and Charles Street is particularly dangerous, cars are double-parked on both sides of the road, and this leaves one lane for traffic. Drivers are not willing to let cyclists pull out into the single lane.

I feel that many of the drivers parking or double-parking are Beacon Hill residents.  If we can close a lane for restaurants we should be willing to let cyclists have a lane.
