    The headline “$1.6B Presidio Parkway to Be Completed After One More Weekend Traffic Closure” should actually read “ 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.

    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.
