Looks like a lovely place to ride along the water.
a) Two incremental improvements I can think of are:
- More separation from the parked cars. A green median in between the cycling path and the parked cars could make it an even more pleasant place to ride away from traffic
- When I checked out this place on google maps (Shore Line Drive) it seemed that a lot of the side streets were lacking cycling infrastructure. When it is a busy day with people going to the beach, I can imagine it would be nice to have a good cycling routes to get to this path along the coast.
b) Some opposition I can think of:
- Creating more of a median and additional cycling infrastructure on side streets would mean either reduced parking space or a reduction in the number of car lanes. Both are probably not popular.
- I could imagine people objecting to spending the money to make these changes.
- A bureaucratic line of opposition used often around here in the Bay Area Peninsula is: “but it is not in the 10 year cycling and pedestrian plan to make these changes”.
