SF bikes when we get a chance to bike alongside our City leaders!
From the Outer Sunset to Bayview to SoMa, we biked with our neighbors and City leaders to celebrate Bike to Work Day with a rally in front of City Hall.
Supervisor Eric Mar took a spin out to Ocean Beach before riding in with his District 1 neighbors from a parklet on Clement Street.
As a beginner who learned through an SF Bicycle Coalition learn-to-ride class, Supervisor Jane Kim had the shortest ride, albeit through some of the city’s busiest streets in SoMa.
We were joined by both Supervisor Malia Cohen and Mohammed Nuru, the head of Public Works, on our District 10 ride starting from the Bayview. The ride took the waterfront route along Illinois Street before cutting through Mission Bay toward City Hall.
Starting from Washington Square Park, Supervisor Aaron Peskin experienced biking on Columbus Avenue as this historic North Beach corridor gets ready to be repaved later this year.
The most popular ride goes to District 5 with Supervisor London Breed, who tried out the new Page Street bike lane en route to City Hall with a large Commuter Convoy with her residents.
In total, we had 8 of 11 Supervisors join in a Commuter Convoy with representatives from every Supervisor’s office present at our City Hall rally. In addition to those above, we were joined by Supervisors Mark Farrell, Katy Tang, Norman Yee, Scott Wiener and staff from the offices of Supervisor David Campos and John Avalos (who gets a special thanks for helping us reserve the space in front of City Hall!). Thank you to our elected officials for showing how popular it is to bike and leading our city towards an even more bike-friendly future.
This day wouldn’t be possible without the support of our City agency leaders. Thanks to Ed Reiskin at the SF Municipal Transportation Agency, Tilly Chang at the SF County Transportation Authority, Debbie Raphael at SF Environment and Steve Heminger at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission for biking with us this morning!
Thanks again to everyone who celebrated the day with us. If you missed the chance on Bike to Work Day, please keep the momentum rolling join or renew your membership today. It takes all of us pulling together to deliver the safe, welcoming streets that every San Franciscans deserves.
