SFBC Treehouse Talk: Connecting the City
More and more people are biking in San Francisco and the numbers are bound to continue to increase as the City has begun to stripe three dozen new bike lanes. But what will take to bring San Francisco to a world-class level, where a majority of San Franciscans of all ages feel comfortable and confident bicycling? Where continuous prioritized crosstown bikeways offer safe, comfortable, inviting routes that are physically separated from vehicles to the fullest extent possible? With Connecting the City, our boldest initiative to date, the SF Bicycle Coalition sets out a road map for a complete system of crosstown bike routes that are designed for everyone from an eight-year-old child to an 80-year-old grandmother, crisscrossing the city and connecting neighborhoods. What will it look like, what will it take, and where do we start? Come to this talk and get a sneak peek at what Connecting the City has in store. Free to SF Bicycle Coalition members (a $5 donation from non-members is appreciated); bring your bike upstairs.
