    The headline “$1.6B Presidio Parkway to Be Completed After One More Weekend Traffic Closure” should actually read “..to Be Completed for Cars…”. Lots of work left to do in reconnecting the Presidio with Crissy Field for people on bikes or on foot.

    To be perfectly honest I am somewhat surprised they chose 2nd street, since at least from a biking perspective there are quite a few other streets that are a lot more flat and thus likely to attract the most causal bikers.

  • Ion Feldman

    It’s not flat, but I’m not sure going all the way to 4th St. to get a southbound bike lane is an attractive option.

    and it’s not really that hilly either. I use 2nd Street frequently. Also – 4th Street is going to have street car tracks the next time it’s usable.
