This Week in Livable Streets Events

This week, the SFMTA Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee gets updates from city staffers, the East Bay Bike Party rolls out in prehistoric style, and Sunday Streets returns to Civic Center and the Tenderloin. Here are the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:
  • Tuesday: The SFMTA Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee meeting will include staff updates from the SFMTA, SFPD, and the Planning Department’s WalkFirst program, which aims to identify key walking streets to prioritize for pedestrian improvements. 5:30 pm.
  • Wednesday: San Francisco and East Bay Bike Coalition Volunteer Nights. Get to know your local bicycle advocacy community by joining in the regular meet-ups to socialize and snack while lending a hand to support the efforts to promote cycling on both sides of the bay. 5 pm.
  • Friday: East Bay Bike Party: Dinosaur ATTACK!!! Roll out on a “prehistoric mashup as man and dinosaur pedal the streets of Oakland side-by-side” from MacArthur BART station to Mosswood Park, stopping by “the Port of Oakland to visit the metal, mechanized saur-like beasts who live there.” 7:30 pm.
  • Saturday: Thinkwalks: Water Walking Tour. Join San Francisco natural historian Joel Pomerantz on an exploration of “the waterways that once coursed through the Mission District and the history of water in San Francisco. We’ll discuss their meandering locations and ecology, their implications for the growth of SF, their spring sources and controversial origins.” 10:30 am.
  • Sunday: Sunday Streets: Civic Center/Tenderloin. Head out to Civic Center and the Tenderloin for a car-free afternoon of strolling, biking, and playing on stretches of Ellis, O’Farrell, and Jones Streets as well as Golden Gate Avenue. 11 am to 4 pm.
  • Sunday: SFTRU Fundraiser at Buck Tavern. Just after Sunday Streets, have a drink at Buck Tavern on Market and Gough Streets to benefit the San Francisco Transit Riders Union, a coalition “working to unite current and future transit riders for an excellent, affordable, and growing public transit system. You’ll have a chance to socialize with transit riders and activists from all over San Francisco.” 4 to 6 pm.
Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.
