Support for the Oak Grove Bike Route

Dear Menlo Park City Council Members,

I am writing to support the efforts of our local Safe Routes for Schools
volunteers to make permanent the Oak Grove Bike Route. So many Hillview
students bicycle to school on a regular basis, and the more we can
encourage them to take well-marked, protected routes, the better for their
safety and well being. Each year we have a number of close calls with
bicycle accidents. Keeping our kids as separate from cars as possible, on
less-well traveled routes, is imperative for their safety.

In addition, one of the biggest complaints we receive from community
members is around student behavior on bicycles, despite our efforts to
promote safe practices. A permanent bike route on Oak Grove would funnel
more students off of Santa Cruz.

Thank you for your consideration in making the Oak Grove Bike Route
permanent, and I believe there are opportunities to improve it based on the
feedback I have seen from the pilot.
