A Bike Boulevard parallel to El Camino is a great idea but how could we safely access it from South Mountain View? Crossing El Camino by bike or by foot ought to be a HUGE priority for the precise plan. For biking, it means continuous bike routes/lanes across El Camino and it might mean some short bike lanes on El Camino to connect the dots (Escuela to El Monte for instance).

I like bicycle boulevards, but this is a let-down. It's not a complete solution if it doesn't let cyclists access the many businesses on El Camino Real. And they can't be serious about the idea anyway if they won't even let Latham residents block their street for one Sunday afternoon.
