Envision an Awesome Embarcadero Bikeway
San Francisco’s eastern waterfront, from Fisherman’s Wharf past the Ferry Building to the Giants’ ballpark and Blue Greenway, is a uniquely marvelous setting for a bike ride, whether for fun or utility, one of the city’s top two-wheeling attractions for locals and visitors. But it’s only just okay for bike traffic — couldn’t it be much better? Carrie Nielsen, 2009 Piero N. Patri Fellow, has been working on the long-pondered question: What would it take to provide an excellent waterside bikeway from Mission Bay to North Point, separated from the motor traffic on the Embarcadero roadway and distinct from Herb Caen Way (a.k.a. the Promenade)? Come hear and see what Carrie has put together for a fully-considered vision of a world-class bikeway on the city’s waterfront, a next-generation element of the Citywide Bike Network.
Details: Monday, Sept. 21, 5:30pm reception, 6:15pm presentation, SPUR, 654 Mission St (betw. New Montgomery and Third St); free to SPUR members, $5 for non-members. Complimentary SFBC valet bike parking will be provided.
