Issues: bike concern

Given Whalley Ave's expansive width and high traffic volumes, and given business owners' desire to transform this space into an urban boulevard from a urban design standpoint, Whalley Avenue from the Fountain St intersection to Broadway would be the ideal location for a European/New York City-style physically separated bike lane. Ideally, this cycle track should spend most time on sidewalk level, as seen in the attached photo.

The bike lanes on Umbria Street, across from the golf center, are covered with mud. The problem is caused by poor drainage on the far side. A volunteer from the Bike Coalition cleaned up the worst of it.
This is a recurring problem -

On 11/4/10 CATA bus #540 passed a friend and I (we had the bright Planet Bike Superflash running and I was wearing a Class II safety vest) within a couple feet off our shoulders as we were riding our bikes southbound on Farm Ln. at about 7 pm. There was a car in the lane next to the bus but there was no traffic behind them; basically no reason for the bus driver to have not slowed down and waited for the car next to him to pass and then move over to avoid passing us so closely. Called in to CATA (394-1100 x236 - Operations Manager for fixed routes) and complained this morning. This was a series of similar incidents this past week that both I and other bicyclist friends have reported.
Forest Rd - Aurelius To Farm Lane Lansing , MI
The road has been marked with hot pink paint as to where the hazards to bicycles.
This would be an excellent time to repair all of the locations from Farm Lane to Aurelius on Forest Road.

Thanks! Thanked!65-79 Howe St New Haven, CT
The bike rack inside of the Howe Street parking garage is great--it is large, well-lit, and right next to the Yale Security Office. The problem is, people have locked up bikes there over a year ago and left them to rust, taking up precious parking spaces. When this many bikes are over-rusted and abandoned, it gives the impression that the rack is not in use, making it more vulnerable to theft. They need to be tagged, impounded, and removed, so that the commuters who actually use this rack can have the space to lock our bikes.

I think bike lanes are needed on Washington Street between Newton Corner and Newtonville. I commute to Boston by bike almost everyday, and this is hands down the most dangerous part of my ride. I think most of the problem is both sides of the street are flanked with parked cars leaving virtually no room for cyclists.
The intersection by the church is not bike friendly. And lord help you riding by Whole Foods going West bound. There is either a line of cars waiting to turn into the lot, forcing you out into traffic. Or folks speed up to get slightly ahead of you to turn into the lot. Both of these are quite dangerous, even for an advanced cyclist.
Until drivers learn how to share the road, bike lanes are the safest way to help protect cyclists.
