Bike Route Signage

There are a number of bike route signs indicating bike friendly routes around the city. So far, the signed routes have focused on long routes and connecting neighborhoods. The BAC would like your suggestions on potential smaller bike routes to suggest. Where do you get confused? Are there routes through geographic obstacles that are not intuitive? Small blips in the street network that leave you entirely perplexed? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
