This Week: SF Bike Party and Sunday Streets in GG Park

Folks celebrating the Fourth of July weekend with a staycation in the city can hop on board with the SF Bike Party and enjoy some car-free bliss at Sunday Streets on the west side. Here are the highlights from this week’s Streetsblog calendar:

  • Monday: SF Transit Riders Union Transit Action Commitee Meeting. Get involved with SFTRU’s efforts to advocate for a better Muni at this monthly meeting to discuss strategies and plan events. “It’s where ‘the rubber hits the road,’ so to speak, and it’s the best way to get started at SFTRU,” the group writes. “Everyone is welcome, even if you’re not a member.” 7 p.m.
  • Friday: Check the agenda for the SFMTA’s bi-weekly engineering hearings for street changes like bike-share stations and daylighting zones up for approval in your neighborhood. 10 a.m.
  • Also Friday: Join the “Robot Revolution” at this month’s SF Bike Party, meeting up at the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. Route TBA. 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday: Sunday Streets returns to Golden Gate Park and the Great Highway, creating six miles of (mostly) car-free areas when you include the Panhandle and the weekly car closures on JFK Drive. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.
