The newly opened stretch of protected bike lane on Valencia Street, from Cesar Chavez to Mission, got off to a bad start, with confused motorists parking all over it. Fortunately, the protected bike lane was open for business today, thanks to better signs and some cones.
Last week, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) launched a letter-writing drive to make sure protected bike lanes are part of SFMTA's Upper Market Street Safety Project from Octavia to the start of the Duboce bicycle path. It looks as if the campaign worked.
Last summer, a survey found that residents near San Francisco's Panhandle wanted parking-protected bike lanes added to Fell and Oak along the length of the park. Now a new survey from a different group is asking the same question.
