Bikes prevail. San Francisco Market Street thoroughfare goes car free

Every Picture Tells a Story – Ongoing Series

After a grass roots political effort which began in 1972 San Francisco’s Market Street, one of the City’s main transit arteries, became car free today.

I have been riding a bike in San Francisco since, yes, 1972.  I must admit that I never thought this would happen.
