San Francisco painted its first new bike lane in over 3 years!!!! It is only a block long (Scott st. between Oak and Fell), but it was a spot that needed it and we will take it! I think I may be the first of us here at the blog to ride on it, although Cali could have beat me to it.
SF has been under this stupid injunction that prevents any infrastructure to be created in the City for the last 3 years. I could rant about the stupidity of it, and the utter selfishness of the person behind it, but instead I will share pictures!
These are my shots. I was so happy to be able to take them!
Here is to what comes next! San Francisco cycling has increased 53% since 2006 without any changes to our bicycling infrastructure. Despite legal battles and increased car traffic in the City, the number of people who have chosen to ride in SF goes up every day. We will prevail. We will gain our rightful spot in the street. It is already happening!
