We need projects like this for adult commuters, too. Many people live within easy biking distance of work. Our climate is mild year-round and mostly flat and easy for biking. More people biking to work will greatly reduce our traffic, parking, and pollution problems. Why doesn't Menlo Park cross-town bike routes like Palo Alto's Bryant Bicycle Boulevard or Mountain View's Stevens Creek Trail?
