Bicycle Planning
During the discussion on parking and traffic at the October meeting, several members indicated the importance of planning for bicycle riders as distinct from either cars or pedestrians.  
The City has taken a start at improving the cycling environment with a new Bicycle Masterplan
The discussion also touched on the importance of safe and effective bike parking.  Examples of innovative techniques include valet bike parking at baseball games in San Francisco, and the Japanese "bike-tree".
