Those green bike lanes on Los Gatos Boulevard and Blossom Hill Road really catch the eye—and that's exactly what they're supposed to do. The green lanes were in- stalled over the last few weeks as a safety measure designed to draw drivers' attention to bicycle riders. The lanes officially opened on April 15 during a kick-off event that was attended by several hundred schoolchildren, parents and residents from surround- ing neighborhoods. The bicyclists gathered under a green balloon arch on Nino Avenue and then hit Los Gatos Boulevard with gusto. "It's really fun to go on the green lanes because cars will see you better; it's not as dangerous," Blossom Hill Elementary fourth-grader Michela Moore said. "I think it's cool that they glow in the dark." Michela and her brother, Brendan, agreed the green lanes were a little bumpy, Brendan also saying he felt safer than he did before. The green lanes are at Los Gatos Boulevard and Shannon Road, Los Gatos Boulevard and Nino Av- enue, and Blossom Hill Road at Roberts Road.
