Oak Grove bike lanes

My daughter bikes to Hillview daily (and will almost certainly bike to M-A
next year), so the bike lanes are a subject that I really do care about.

With a few caveats, the bike lanes are a huge improvement - they remove a
great deal of conflict (mostly caused by impatient / badly behaved drivers)
on the corridor, with a few gotchas. Please keep them!

- The left from Oak Grove to Crane is awkward. It would be much better of
the westbound bike lane continued to University. (The Eastbound situation
is much better, because going from "no bike lane" to "bike lane" is a much
easier / safer transition)
- The pavement on Oak Grove Westbound between ECR and Crane is in somewhat
poor condition - there's a lot of uneven joints / bumps / etc. This is a
minor issue, but worth being aware of.

To reiterate - please keep the bike lanes, and consider a couple of
constructive suggestions for making them better.

Thank you!
