If city officials want to see how proper green bike markings should be installed look at what Dublin and Danville did. The San Ramon raised green markings are bumpy and can lead a cyclist to lose control with the raised abruptness. San Ramon continues to be way behind in bicycle safety compared to every other town in the tri-Valley. Please consider soliciting advice from bicyclists and please consider spending the money to do the job correctly.. Sidewalk sharing is NOT a safe and viable bicycle pathway.
