There are scores of livable streets-related happenings in San Francisco and around the Bay Area every month. Since not all of them get the attention they deserve, we'll be highlighting Streetsblog Calendar listings in a new Monday post. Here's a taste of what's going on in livable streets events this week.
Tuesday:How to Bike Anywhere and Fix a Flat. The SFBC will show you the best way to get around town quickly and safely by bike and how to fix a flat tire--the most important bike maintenance skill. 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Thursday:SPUR Lunchtime Forum: The Burnham Plan and its Legacy. Stephen Tobriner, professor of architecture emeritus at UC Berkeley, explores Daniel Burnham’s 1905 master plan for San Francisco, a vision for the “Paris of America” that went unrealized in the wake of the 1906 disaster. 12:30 p.m.
Saturday:El Camino Real Grand Boulevard Initiative Forum. At this public forum, Peninsula leaders and residents will explore how El Camino Real can be remade into a world-class boulevard that achieves its full potential as a sustainable place for residents to work, live, shop and play and that links land-use and transit. Michael Freedman, described as a "renowned urban planner," will state the case for this transformation. Caltrans head Will Kempton, Representative Anna Eshoo and Steve Heminger of the MTC will provide federal and regional context. 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Saturday:Circle the City Bike Tour. This circle tour of the City features a few moderate hills, lots of interesting neighborhoods, San Bruno Mountain, and Skyline Boulevard overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Meet at Panhandle statue (Baker between Fell and Oak), San Francisco. 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
