As one who has biked on busy roads and rides on Alpine Road almost every day, I must say that although there are many good bikers, many do not ride defensively. At college in the UK the police used to regularly cite bikers for riding on the sidewalk and riding without lights.

Re: Navigate the cracks (groove) near Ford Field on Alpine Road
Does anyone know if this crack (groove) was reported to the Town of Portola Valley as a "dangerous condition", or why this groove was cut in the bike lane ? On Sept 11/2009 I caught my front wheel in in this groove and crashed. I suffered a collapsed lung, type 3 shoulder separation, and possible fractured ribs. After spending two days in the hospital I came home and reported the groove to Howard Young, (Director of Public Works, Town of Portola Valley). The groove has since been filled. If anyone has any more information about this groove could you please contact me
