Sunday Streets Great Highway 2009 a Huge Success

Well, yesterday’s Sunday Streets went off without a hitch under the pouring sun (after the fog went away, sort of). Check it out at the Richmond District Blog and elsewhere.

Here’s the heart of the party, at the intersection of Lincoln and the Great Highway in the outer Outer Sunset. Click to expand:

So my Kawasaki Ninja (I kept telling them that it’s just a 600) isn’t welcome but this gas-powered “go-ped” is? Mmmmm

 A tow is always nice when you’re skateboarding on the Great Highway:

Yes DPW was fairly agressive about getting traffic moving again at 2:00 PM and yes, some cars trying to get across GGP were a-honking after waiting a while for the flow of bikes to stop, but all in all, everything seemed to work out.

See you again on September 6, 2009!
