This Week: Parking Permits, Women Bike SF, Oaklavia

sblog_calendar1Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

      • Wednesday: San Francisco’s Residential Parking Permit Community Workshop. The SFMTA is seeking public comment to update and (hopefully) improve San Francisco’s parking permit program. This is one of 11 workshops they are holding throughout the city. Once the public meetings are complete, staff will take recommendations to the SFMTA Board of Directors in fall 2016. Wednesday, June 1, is the session for District 6, 6-8 p.m., at St. Anthony’s, 150 Golden Gate Avenue, SF.
      • Thursday: Another of San Francisco’s Residential Parking Permit Community Workshops. Thursday, June 2, is the session for District 10, 6-8 p.m., CCSF South East Campus, 1800 Oakdale Avenue, SF.
      • Thursday: Rodando en la Habana: Bicycle Stories Documentary Screenings. This independent documentary tells of bicycling and community in Cuba, 20 years after the hardest time of the “Special Period,” when over 1 million imported Chinese bicycles aided Cuban survival when they were without Soviet petroleum. Thursday, June 2, 6:30–10:00 p.m., Red Poppy Art House, 2698 Folsom Street, SF. $7–$12, but no one turned away.
      • Friday: Women Bike SF: June Ride and Coffee Club. Join Women Bike SF for another coffee hour and ride with the San Francisco Cycling Club (SFCC). Every Friday morning the SFCC gathers and rides a bayside loop through the Presidio, ending at the Rapha Cycle Club for coffee. This time, Women Bike SF is joining them. Ride starts at 6 a.m. from Fell and Baker Street (the entrance of the Panhandle). This ride will be up-tempo (14-16 mph). Bring your road bike and wear your SF Bicycle Coalition (or other) cycling kit. Friday, June 3, from Fell and Baker St. (entrance to the Panhandle). If you don’t want to ride, you can join for a coffee from 8-9 a.m. and then just ride Polk St. into downtown. RSVP is requested.
      • Saturday: Love Our Neighborhood Day. In the annual tradition of Bogotá’s “Cyclovia,” North Oakland neighbors will once again close San Pablo Avenue, creating a car-free “Oaklavia” experience, and opening up the street for all. There will be food, entertainment, art activities, and a number of community organizations and businesses. Come out and enjoy a day of community and street spirit, organized by Walk Oakland Bike Oakland. Saturday, June 4, 11 a.m., San Pablo Avenue between Stanford and Ashby, Oakland.
      • Sunday: Gals with Gears: SF to Larkspur. Join the Gals for an enjoyable, easy-going ride along Embarcadero in San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge, around the Tiburon Loop and on to the Larkspur Ferry Terminal via Paradise Drive. The ride ends at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal. Riding tips provided. Pace is relaxing. Gals with Gears are women over 50 and tired of being the only gals pulling up on bikes at intersections (No, you don’t have to be over 50 to join – just have to want to ride with them). Sunday, June 5, 8:45-2:00 p.m. RSVP required.
