I also want to remind folks to look over the Mt. View Local Team campaign spreadsheet here and write your name next to 10-12 projects you think should be prioritized on our work plan.

You should add your name to projects that 1) you care about and 2) will play a part in moving forward. These campaigns will also be featured on the MT. View  local team web page on SVBC's website.   

Please let me know if you have any questions. See you all this afternoon!

Best,

During the Biketivist forum today, we discussed physical separation of bike lanes via concrete or bumpers.

Here's an example of concrete with occasional bumpers, courtesy of Google Maps, on McClellan Rd in Cupertino; not sure if these bumpers are flexible or fixed.
