Bicycles and cars have no uneasy truce on the streets of San Francisco. What exists is not open war. It’s something weirdly in between, not unlike the relationship between Pi and Richard Parker. One wants to eat the other and the other wishes the one would go away.
The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition hosted an neighborhood event called Love Your Lanes. Presented as an opportunity for feedback to the powers controlling the state of city streets, they surveyed a route that just happened to include the first three miles of my commute.
It was a good ride. It included a climb from Castro and Market to the top of Portola. It’s not so bad if you’re on the small chain ring all the way up.
We took a pic at the juncture of Corbett and Market.
