Liz Heidhues and I have been riding our bicycles in San Francisco since 1972. Bicycles are our means of transportation. We have never owned a car.
How many cyclists will die before San Francisco really protects its cyclists?
I will join outraged and grieving bicyclists at San Francisco City Hall on March 19 at 12:30 pm to demand City officials immediately install more dedicated bike lanes, and place restrictions on vehicles in these bike friendly corridors.
Despite a number of increased bike lanes, San Francisco is still a dangerous place for cyclists. The death of 30 year old Tess Rothstein on February 22 as the Stanford grad cycled near 6th and Howard Street traumatized and motivated the cycling community. Photo atop this Post is her mangled bicycle.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, with over 10,000 members, has been fighting for the rights and protection of cyclists since 1972.
