    please remove the three parking spaces fronting 1200 River St where the distance between the space and the shoulder line is less than the standard 4 foot bike lane; there is plenty of other on and off site parking in the vicinity; although not marked as a bike lane the shoulder is wide enough to serve as a bike lane along this whole segment of Hwy 9, except at this one location

    please install a travel lane jogs sign like W1-4 and green lane or other lane markings to show Front St southbound travel lane jogs to the left past the Soquel intersection; this is needed because motor vehicles squeeze out cyclists in the bike lane

    please remove shoulder/parking lane stripe and replace with marked parking bays and sharrows; the lane stripe was installed as a traffic calming device to slow motor vehicles, but has not been successful in that manner, but instead appears to be a bike lane; another alternative is to remove parking on one side and install bike lanes

    please allow cyclists to use this bridge by removing no cycling signs; this bridge is wide enough, has adequate site distance and has railings so that it is usable for both pedestrians and cyclists; this is a major connecting route for cyclists as part of the river levee multi-use paths

    please either keep gates open all the time or fence off both sides of park along pathway so pathway can stay open all the time; park has been gated off at 9 p.m. to address nighttime use issues, but blocks a through route for cyclists to and from Grant St as an alternative to Ocean St.

    please keep part of gate fronting street open; gate is in two parts, one fronting sidewalk and one fronting street; usually only sidewalk part of gate is open, forcing cyclists onto the sidewalk in competition with pedestrians.

    please replace May Ave stop signs with other traffic calming measure that doesn't slow bicyclists. This was installed to slow motor vehicles, but hinders cyclists. May serves as an alternative to Ocean.

    Implement the promenade from the Wharf Master Plan for better bike/ped access to the ocean for users of all ages and abilities.

    This is my most feared location of my daily bike ride. The bike path (and sidewalk) curves to accommodate the bus stop, but cars routinely go in a straight line cutting off the corner of the bike lane leaving bicyclists with nowhere to go. very dangerous and scary. Could be an easy fix to straighten this curve (may need row though), big impact!

    There is a blind spot on river levee path under Riverside at this location. It's dangerous when people stop here, especially because people on bikes are going down hill, through a curve, and in a low light situation. Please use crosshatch striping, signage or another method to indicate that this is a no stopping area. I and others have had many 'near misses' here.

    Better entrance and signage for San Lorenzo Levee path all along this great car-free path.

    buckled pavement near RR tracks and just before Picnic Basket is in dire need of repair. It is a major bike hazard.

    Sign needed to notify cyclists and walkers that Arana Gulch is a through path to Broadway and downtown.

    Need better signs directing and notifying both cyclists and walkers to Arana Gulch through path.

    Need sign at roundabout directing cyclists to cross tracks at a 90 degree angle to avoiding crashing. RR crashes are one of the most common causes of bike falls.

    Pedestrian need access to the SL Trestle walkway from the boardwalk side of the tracks as many people are walking on the RR tracks across the trestle when heading east. This is extremely dangerous.

    Additional traffic calming measures are required on the 4-lane segment of Capitola Rd. between 41st and 43rd. The pedestrian crossings that were added at 42nd are helpful but not sufficient. Traffic is still traveling too fast for this residential area. Suggest eliminating the 4 lanes at 41st, and reverting back to 2 lanes between 41st and 43rd

    Cyclists traveling toward state park drive on Soquel must navigate a variety of obstacles here. The bicycle lane heading up the hill toward State Park just kind of ends near the donut shop, and merges with vehicle parking and the motor vehicle lane. To make matters worse the pavement is 3rd world quality, forcing bicyclists to ride in the traffic lane. The solution is to repave the roadway to fix the poor pavement quality, and re-stripe the roadway to extend the bicycle lane to State Park Dr.

    The position of the bicycle lane approaching 7th from the Harbor is illogical. Eaton St. is a two lane road here, with the right lane a dedicated right turn lane, while left lane traffic can proceed either straight or left (onto 7th). Yet the bicycle lane is between the two lanes. Better to build a green bicycle box, and give cyclists the right of way. That will prevent conflicts between yclists turning left onto 7th and motor vehicles proceeding straight on Eaton

    This would be a wonderful intersection to add green bicycle travel lanes, as well as a "Yield to Bicycles" sign. Cars routinely cut off bicyclists when turning right from Murray St, into the harbor.

    The current striping of the bicycle lane in the vicinity of the bicycle lane is a hazard to cyclists. The lane curves and motor vehicles proceeding through the intersection towards the harbor routinely disregard the striping and drive into the bicycle lane. I personally have had several close calls here, with cars coming within inches of me. It would be helpful to add rubber berms to demarcate the lanes, such as are used in the SC boardwalk area.

    In the vein of small improvements, there is a bulb-out in the curbing next to the surf shop that is a hazard for cyclists. There is a telephone pole there that I think the curbing was designed to protect, but the pole is several feet away from the curb. Eliminating the bulb-out would enhance cyclists ability to access this intersection, coming from the UCSC direction

    Embrace Delaware as a neighborhood greenway for the WS: add signage, traffic calming measures, green or buffered bike lanes, and complete the connections by removing parking where appropriate.
