Saying thanks to the huge number of people who are biking politely and yielding to pedestrians.
We know that the majority of people biking in San Francisco are biking politely, and giving pedestrians the right of way. Unfortunately, it’s the scofflaw cyclists who are noticed most. So we at the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition wanted to say thank you to everyone who is following the rules of the road and being a great bike ambassador. We noticed!
Throughout the year, the SF Bicycle Coalition sets up Bike Polite stations, where we catch people yielding to pedestrians and giving our pedestrian friends the right of way, as required by law. Those “caught” get sweet treats and are entered to win a raffle for even bigger prizes.
