        Paths that lead no where are not that interesting to most folks. Some weighting needs to be given to whether separated bike paths are useful to get places or are just recreational trails to nowhere.

        Commuter bike lanes are important. But off-street recreational biking opportunities are also important, especially for families. I would suggest two metrics: (1) Distance to nearest recreational bike path entrance (park, etc.) and (2) Total length of recreational bike path within a given radius (say, 5 miles).
