The wait to see proposed designs for protected bike lanes on Valencia Street is over. You have two opportunities coming up to see them for yourself this month. Are you in?
Our members have been working hard since the campaign launched earlier this year: attending committee meetings, happy hours and a walking tour to provide valuable input on solutions for the bike corridor. Because of these efforts, protected bike lanes free of Uber and Lyft drivers on Valencia Street are one step closer to reality.
For the first time, City planners will be sharing their proposed designs for Valencia, all of which include options for protected bike lanes. This is your chance to talk face-to-face with the project team and share your thoughts about whether their proposals will make your bike ride better.

Valencia Public Workshop #2

While we’re excited to see the long-term vision for Valencia move forward, we’ve also heard loud and clear from our members that change is urgently needed now. Valencia has become an obstacle course as people biking have to weave in and out of the bike lane to avoid vehicles dropping off passengers or trucks making deliveries. Join us in pushing City staff to implement near-term improvements by the end of the year, because our safety can’t wait.
You’ve dreamt big alongside us, let’s make sure the SFMTA does too.
