  • Folsom Street bike lane?! Just incredible. I sometimes fantasize about being transported to NYC where the city simply puts in kick ass bike lane infrastructure because it just should be there, no questions asked (or a lot fewer questions than asked here, not just by Mr. Anderson, but by the advocates themselves in a lot of ways).

    This seems like a huge story, carefully tucked into the day’s events… I’ve long thought that Folsom would be an incredible street to bike on, all those trees in the high teens and 20s. If the city would just do things that the bike community hasn’t explicitly asked for, like this, I think we’ll be way ahead of glacial bike plan developments–who needs a skeleton-like plan if they will just make the streets bike friendly all over?

    I know I’m reading into this too much, it feels too good to be true, but for a minute there, I thought I saw Sadik-Khan smiling upon SF from her new office in the MTA…
