Bicycle boulevards are great in general, especially when traveling with kids. But I would be cautious with the idea that just establishing a bicycle boulevard on a residential street is good enough. I live on a section of bicycle boulevard (upper Lincoln St.) that is obviously used as a cut through, far exceeding the recommended volume and speed of a bicycle boulevard. It's important that the city truly follows through on making these streets a priority for bicycles. Cars dominate the roadway landscape, so truly giving priority to bicycles on these streets shouldn't be an issue.
