SF Bicycle Coalition Market/Mission Survey Bike Ride

From SF Bike Coalition:

With the recent news of the delay to the Better Market Street Project and introduction of a new Mission Street concept, the SF Bicycle Coalition invites our members on a survey bike ride of Market Street and Mission Street. We will take a look at the options proposed for each of these streets and invite your questions and feedback on how to make biking, walking and taking the bus excellent on Market Street, the city’s premier boulevard. See sfbike.org/Market for more information.

Meet at the corner of Market and 10th Street. We will make a loop on Market Street downtown towards the Ferry Building and back up Mission Street, ending at Mission and South Van Ness.

Read some of the background and input received so far at the Better Market Street website. Your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition has been working for years on your behalf to transform Market Street in to a great bicycling street. We’ve made great strides, and this project promises to be the key to realizing the street’s potential to be a place you love to bike, walk or just linger and look. Join the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition in calling for a wide, green separated bikeway the length of Market Street plus access to a shared bus lane. Your voice is crucial!

Bikeway on Mission Street Would Cost More Than One on Market
