Ride to Opening Day on the new 3rd Street bike lane

Baseball season is almost upon us! We’re excited to offer you another year of free bike valet on the south side of Oracle Park while you catch a Giants home game. 

This season there’s an exciting new development that will help you get to and from the games safer and faster. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) recently finished construction on the 3rd Street Quick-Build that updated the biking facilities immediately around Oracle Park. 

Between the 3rd Street Bridge (also known as the Lefty O’Doul Bridge) and Townsend Street, 3rd St got upgraded from sharrows to a two-way protected bike lane. The bike lane was made possible through a road diet – removing a lane of car traffic. If you’ve been in the area during a game you know it can get really congested and dangerous for people walking, biking and rolling. The new road diet will help reduce vehicle speeding and eliminate some opportunities for collision, while the bike lanes offer more protection and visibility.  

The project also added improved connection to the existing bike lane on Berry Street, protected turns for people biking, signs and crosswalk updates. This quick-build has not only enhanced connections to the stadium and our bike valet, but also to Mission Bay, SOMA, the Embarcadero/King Street corridor and the San Francisco Bay Trail.

The next time you bike to a Giants game, make sure to give the new bike lane a quick pass, and of course park your bike with us before game time! Our valet is open 2 hours before first pitch, and closes 30 minutes after the game ends to make sure everyone has time to get their bike. At every game our valet attendants keep up to 200 bikes safe with secured, monitored parking. Don’t forget to tip the valet attendants!
