A Neglected Moment in the Davis Bike Saga: November 1, 1965 (241)

Davis history enthusiast Hiram Jackson has sent me a copy of an op-ed letter by Frank C.
Davis Enterprise, November 1, 1965 (continues)
Child appearing on the front page of the Davis Enterprise on November 1, 1965.

Hiram rightly remarks that this document appears to be a neglected moment in the history of the advent of bike lanes in Davis.

The standard history of bike lanes features mention of the reluctance of officials to support lanes and their slowness in finally doing so.

But this letter suggests that the standard history may even underplay just how foot-dragging officials appear to have been.

Many thanks to Hiram for bringing this letter to light.
