Having a connection to the water front cycle path from Elm Street, somewhere in between Granite St and Queen City Ave would be nice. Currently, you can connect via entrance behind Delta Dental Stadium or you have to cross the wide and busy Queen City Ave to connect to the trail at Sundial Ave to the South. Perhaps utilize Hancock St next to the Elliot to make a connection?

I use the bike lanes weekly to travel southbound to QC Bike Collective and northbound back home. The positive is the bike lanes let motorists know that bikes have a right to be in the roadway. The negative is the bike lanes are very exposed, with vehicle right turn lanes often swapping locations with bike lanes. Integrating bike facilities with the sidewalk would be something to investigate. At minimum the bike lane should maintain its heading and have vehicles merge to cross over to turn lane.
