MP City Council -

I'm writing in support of the bicycle infrastructure improvements on Oak
Grove, Valparaiso, Glenwood, and Middlefield. My daughter and most of her
friends bike to school (Hillview) every day, and the current state of
cycling infrastructure is pretty sad to say the least.

Even with the bids coming in a bit high, this is still a small price to pay
for improved safety for the hundreds of MPCSD students who bike to school
every day, along with the adults biking to work, errands, etc.

Better cycling infrastructure also reduced the need for (much more
expensive) automotive upgrades and parking, over the long term, by
encouraging people to bike instead of drive.

Thanks for listening!
