Some residents on Alfalfa Market Road east of Bend are concerned about possible bicycle -car accidents on the road. Andy Andrews has lived in Alfalfa for twenty years, but he says in the last couple years, bikers will ride five abreast on the narrow, windy road.  “We're very concerned about bicyclists putting themselves in a dangerous position to be killed. And I think if we just talk about it there are things we can do. It's hard for drivers coming over the hill and seeing them ride several across and we want to make sure no one gets killed. That’s my major concern.” Andrews feels bikers when going down a hill should stay to the right and move out of the way, so no one gets hurt. He believes there's a way for both bicyclists and cars to share the road, so everyone can stay safe.
