SFBC Women Bike SF Ride: Women in Transportation

From SFBC:

Join the SF Bicycle Coalition and Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) for a ride along San Francisco’s waterfront!

Ever wonder why some projects take so long while others seem to pop up out of nowhere? Want to better understand San Francisco’s bike infrastructure and unique design? Want to meet others who are interested or involved with urban planning and transportation issues?

Join us for a casual-paced, 6-mile ride and learn more about the many bike-friendly projects, both past and present, where “the city meets the Bay.” The ride will start at Justin Herman Plaza and end at Fort Mason. We’ll stop along the way to discuss infrastructure projects and planning efforts to develop a high-quality biking experience along the waterfront.

Highlights include:

+ Lefty O’Doul Bridge
+ Terry Francois Boulevard and the Warriors Arena development
+ Second Street
+ The Embarcadero
+ North Point Street
+ Aquatic Park Promenade
+ Fort Mason circulation

Start Location: Justin Herman Plaza (next to the Bike Share station, map)
End Location: Fort Mason
Length: 6-7 miles (Route Map)
Note: the route is approximate and may be subject to change
