This Week: A Bikeway for Market or Mission Street?

This evening, the SF Bicycle Coalition will lead a survey ride to discuss the new proposal to build protected bike lanes on Mission Street instead of Market Street. Bike riders looking for fun this weekend can join the East Bay Bike Party on a transportation history ride from the Wiggle to the beach, and the first Sunday Streets of the season is coming to the Embarcadero.

Here are all the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Monday: The SFBC is hosting a survey bike ride on downtown Market and Mission Streets to see what members think of the new Better Market Street proposal to build a protected bikeway on Mission and not Market. 5:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday: The SFMTA Board of Directors will discuss how to improve transit access to the waterfront. 1 p.m.
  • Also Tuesday: The Planning Department hosts an informational meeting to help prospective parklet applicants navigate the permitting process. 6 p.m.
  • Friday: The East Bay Bike Party celebrates the fabulous color green, inviting riders to dress up as anything from a leprechaun to the Hulk. Meet up at West Oakland BART at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: Beef up on SF transportation history on a ThinkWalks bike tour led by local historian Joel Pomerantz, from the Wiggle to Ocean Beach. Learn about the origin of the Wiggle, sharrows, and more. This five-mile, relaxed-pace ride meets at Church and Duboce at 10 a.m.
  • Sunday: The first Sunday Streets kicks off with a car-free Embarcadero — it’s the perfect opportunity to walk, run, bike, dance, and explore — and for kids to learn how to ride a bike. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
