Bike to Work Day is May 13th

It’s that time of year again…time for Bike to Work Day!

As part of my commitment to my Earth Day resolutions, I decided to try biking part of my epic commute. I drive 50 miles each way on any given workday, and I feel pretty bad about my carbon footprint, and my general lack of exercise that are the result of so much drive time. We’ve had a fair number of storms recently in the Bay Area, so I haven’t had a chance to try my new plan yet. I figure Bike to Work Day gives me the perfect opportunity!

Cyclists planning to participate in the Bay Area’s 16th Annual Bike to Work Day on Thursday will be greeted by a new feature on Market Street — a separate bike lane now replete with bright green paint.

The enhancements to the bike lane were added over the weekend to Market Street between Gough and Eighth streets. The green paint, similar in color to a “bike box” put down on Scott Street earlier this year, coincides with a new measure to separate the bike lane by adding “safe-hit” posts to the area designated for cyclists.

Gearing up for Bike to Work Day

Andrew Casteel —

Thursday's Bike to Work Day will be the first time in more than three years that the annual spring event can be cast by cycling enthusiasts more as celebration than protest.

That's because in November a San Francisco Superior Court judge partially lifted a 2006 injunction that barred the city from striping new bike lanes and moving forward with other biking enhancements until a comprehensive environmental assessment of the San Francisco Bicycle Plan was completed.
