Delta De Anza Trail, Bike, Los Medanos College

I made a video I hope will change the way Los Medanos College deals with the Delta De Anza Trail behind teh campus.
My bet is that it won't work.
But to make me feel better you should watch it so at least someone will have seen it. Go ahead, waste 4 minutes. Just for me.
Thanks.

Put some solar panels into the design of the entrance and get some juicy Prop. 39 funding.

or... Crowd Fund it, ala Kickstarter etc.

I have cycled on the Delta De Anza Trail and recognize the entrance to Los Medanos College in the video. I enjoyed seeing the East Bay Regional Park map put to good use in advocating for improvement. The recommendation of a more direct connection between the trail and the parking lot is a good one. Having said that, I have to say that the Delta De Anza trail itself, at least during the summer, is not very appealing. As a visitor to the area, one who rode many of the trails in Antioch, I found it dry, desolate, and graffiti-scarred. I gave up on the trails and switched to travelling on the streets, where at least there were people to look at.

Dunkirk, I can't really argue. On my road-bike rides I much prefer roads. But for beginning cyclists, those who fear cars, and people who it would more convenient for, I think this is do-able.

As a commuter who often rides in the dark, the graffiti doesn't bother me. If I really want to be snide, I could point out that the trails pretty much match the rest of the city.

There you go, Curtis, making a difference again. Way to go.

And kudos to the powers that be for actually listening and responding. That is never a sure thing.
