Bike lanes

Dear City Council,

My thoughts on the ECR decisions you are faced with tonight. I'm very concerned with the traffic especially. And bike myself on the side streets when going north / south
1. Traffic on ECR is horrendous.
2. The issue is of great importance to local citizens and merchants.
3. I believe the bike lobby is effective, but comparatively small. Notice the number of bike commuters as you travel around.
4. Removing “up to 7 heritage trees—maybe” as the staff report states, is not a reason to eliminate the planned right-hand turn lane on Ravenswood northbound. In California, growing and replacing trees is easy.
5. El Camino Real, with its curb cuts and driveways and buses, is obviously not a safe bike route. There are better north south alternatives. Let’s find them.
