A Valparaiso-Glenwood Bike Corridor is the most natural place to cross El Camino Real at the north end of Menlo Park.
- Valparaiso extends more than a mile to the popular north-south bike lanes on Alameda de Las Pugas.
- Glenwood connects to popular bike lanes on Laurel St which in turn connect to bike lanes on Encinal, Ravenswood and Willow.

(Plus) Increases the safety and comfort for the large number of bicyclists who already ride on this avenue.
(Plus) Most convenient route for bike trips with BOTH origins and destinations north of a Menlo-Ravenswood Bike Corridor.
(Plus) Increases the safety and comfort for students riding to Encinal School, Menlo-Atherton High School, Menlo School, Sacred Heart and Hillview.
(Plus) Little or no impact on street parking.
(Minus) Existing speed limit of 35 mph is too stressful for many bicyclists. Should reduce to 25 mph between El Camino Real and either San Mateo Drive or Cotton where bicyclists can easily cross to Santa Cruz Avenue near Hillview School.
