What the community wants is a trail parallel to Page Mill Expressway under I-280 to the Arastradero Preserve. The current bike lane on the left side of Page Mill Expressway is a death trap. Alpine Road already has a perfectly adequate sidewalk and no ned for Stanford's "improvement". When is Stanford going to get the message?
