UPDATE: Well geez, people, this was just a fleeting peek – I didn’t stick around to see how far dude made it down Bush Street and how fast he was going, etc. I’m just saying, “When This Cyclist ‘Takes the Lane’ on Busy Pine Street, He Really Takes the Lane.” That’s all.

“21202.  (a) Any person operating a bicycle upon a roadway at a speed less than the normal speed of traffic moving in the same direction at that time shall ride as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway except…”

    Which is exactly what you are suppose to do.

  2. sfcitizen says:

    Not exactly.

    You’re _allowed_ to do it though, in certain cases…

  3. mikesonn says:

    Explain yourself then?

  4. sfcitizen says:

    Vc 21202

  5. seanrea says:

    Looks legit to me.

  6. mikesonn says:

    How is what he is doing wrong in your “book”? 21202 says he can take the lane. You need to explain more or have a better picture because him taking the lane is completely legal.

  7. sfcitizen says:

    Not allowed to take lane unless a or b or c or… i cant articulate for him. i dont know if what he was doing was legal

    I used to take Pine for three blocks between Octavia & Webster when traveling from the Financh west to the Richmond (Sutter & Sacramento the rest of the way), because it was fairly level, when the alternatives either went way up and then down, or way down and then up.

    But this is at the end of Pine, where it turns into Masonic. Guy was probably going to Trader Joe’s.

    Oops, I meant to say Bush, Pine’s twin. Fixed.

    Financh to the Richmond – that’s a toughie.
