This Week: Green Lane Project Comes to SF

It’s a good week to renew your love with your bicycle. Join the SF Bicycle Coalition for a chance to learn about the Green Lane Project’s efforts to bring protected bike lanes to cities including SF; try out the matchmaking at the “Love on Wheels” dating game; and take a field survey of the Sunset from a two-wheeled perspective.

Here are all the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Thursday: SFBC Going Green: San Francisco and the Green Lane Project. Join Martha Roskowski, director of Bikes Belong’s “Green Lane Project,” and SFBC Executive Director Leah Shahum for a discussion of the effort to bring more protected bike lanes to six cities, how it could affect the future of San Francisco’s streets, and how SF compares to other leading bike-friendly cities. 6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: SFBC Love Your Lanes Bike Ride – Sunset. Join the SFBC on a bike ride through the Sunset District and help evaluate recent bicycle improvements, as well as what work still needs to be done. Meet at 7th Avenue and Kirkham Street. 1 p.m.
