Here’s What’s Wrong with the SFMTA’s Absurd JFK Bike Lanes in Golden Gate Park: #3, Riding in the Loading Zone

Let’s see, how can I phrase this? How about:

New JFK bike lanes are bad for everyone

Or this, or this,whichever.

Now here’s the reaction from a former San Francisco Bicycle Coalition member from just last week:

“JFK used to be one of the most stress free roads to bike on. I curse the SF bike coalition whenever I take it now. You shouldn’t shun a group because of one move you disagree with but the disparity between how much I loved biking this road before to how much I dislike it now is just too great. They’ll never see another penny from me. Such an unneeded change done just because they could.”

On to new business

Believe or not, these cars are legally parked on JFK  Drive. Most of the cyclists are where they belong, but what about the people who ride in the loading area in the “door zone?” Is that what cyclists are supposed to do? Is it legal? Should it be? Should they, somehow, know what the SFMTA was thinking? Should the cyclists get cited to “teach them a lesson?”

I don’t know.

And the SFMTA is proud because they’ve determined that cyclists are going slightly slower now?

Yep.

    This is on my way home crossing from the Richmond to Inner Sunset–it’s a mess. There have been times when bikers do not have any type of light or reflectors at night and whip out of nowhere to turn from John F Kennedy Drive to Nancy Pelosi Drive–and sometimes at no fault of theirs it’s totally confusing for everyone when there are night events at the DeYoung or at the Academy of Sciences and some cars just park in the bike lanes. Not to mention the tight space at some areas–It’s a mess. What were they thinking?!
