Last Sunday your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition embarked upon a six-mile ride to learn more about the many bike-friendly projects, both past and present, where “the city meets the Bay.” If you missed this ride, there are plenty more opportunities ahead to help shape the future of San Francisco’s waterfront.
Together with the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) and the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN), we started at Brannan Street Wharf and rode to Fort Mason Center. We stopped along the way to highlight transportation infrastructure and new developments coming to the waterfront, as well as ongoing ways to get involved in the planning processes. A special thanks to Diane Oshima and Norma Guzman of the Port of San Francisco for joining the ride, part of our Women Bike SF program.
An important feature of the ride that prompted the most discussion was the Embarcadero Enhancement Project. Led by the SF Municipal Transportation Agency with coordination from the Port, this public planning process will develop the preferred design of what a protected bike lane from AT&T Park to Fisherman’s Wharf could look like.
Public outreach for the plan is starting up again this fall, so join our mailing list today. We know that an iconic waterfront like San Francisco’s deserves a first-rate biking experience, whether you’re taking in the views of the Bay or getting around by bike. There are plenty of opportunities to engage in the coming months with meetings, rides and more, so stay tuned.
