San Francisco’s temperate climate, dense neighborhoods, limited supply of automobile parking and compact geography have helped create a renewed interest in greener, more efficient transportation alternatives. With more and more people opting to bike to work, school, to run errands and for fun, San Francisco has the potential to become a world-class bicycling city.
Major infrastructure and programmatic improvements have taken place since the San Francisco Bicycle Plan was developed in 1997. Miles of new bicycle lanes have been striped; hundreds of bicycle racks have been installed; educational programs and outreach efforts have been expanded; and the percentage of San Francisco residents who commute to work by bicycle more than doubled from 1990 to 2000 and continues to increase.[1]
