    Hit/run article link doesn’t work.

  • Fixed, thanks.

  • Which 12 Bay Area folks when on the Netherlands trip? I’m not sure why it would be something that needs to be kept secret. None of the source articles offers up this information.

    have you heard any info about a ped being hit by a car last friday on mission and cortland? i have been looking for it, but can’t find any info.

  • Some other articles have been written on it that might list them all out. A quick Google search turned up this one which lists all their positions but not names:

  • Sorry, I haven’t.

  • You can argue all you want about helmets on a normal SF day, but, of all days, you most certainly don’t need one on Sunday Streets.

    Isn’t the mainstream media at least starting to get suspicious that’s there’s a little bit more to this helmet thing??

    Gil Peñalosa making a “rookie” mistake by wearing jeans and no helmet?  How insulting to a leader in city planning!  Get a clue SFGate, it’s Sunday Streets, not a bike race. You’re embarrassing me.

  • Well, they are tourists–I bet they haven’t ridden a bicycle in years!

    Think of what that $300+ million could do for other, actually needed capital improvements.
