If You Subtract the Car-Based Fun Cancelled by “Sunday Streets” from the “Car-Free” Fun Created,” What Do You Have Left?

Here’s Sunday Streets 2017 on JFK in the western reaches of Golden Gate Park:

What’s missing is a bunch of parked cars on both sides of the street.

The result is this, relatively “people-free” meadows on a weekend day what would normally contain thousands, plus the concomitant bouncy houses and whatnot:

Of course you can “frame” things as you wish, but in the Frisco of  2017, cars = people.

Sry.

It’s possible/probable that fewer souls come to GGP on Sunday Streets days. It’s also very possible that that’s the way you like it, as you favor one kind of person over another kind of person.

And of course, we’re just talking about one or two days a year, I realize, so no biggee, just like you realize you’re driving ppl away from our biggest park due to some greater goal you’ll trying to attain.

But when you figure that’s there’s no loss, no cons on the list of pros and cons, at all, to a Sunday Streets, well you’re wrong.

Realize that I’m not a bank vice-president from San Mateo County with a marketing degree tasked with increasing cycling in Frisco, I’m just somebody with far more miles, hours, years, decades on a bike in Frisco County than you, yes even you, Gentle Reader, so my sperpective might be a little different than yours.

Generally speaking, Gentle Reader, if you find anything cryptic on this site, you can always highlight and then right click* for a quick Googling for your answer. But in this case, the Criminal Minds soundtrack is the first hit, for some odd reason. Anyway, here’s your answer. Yes, poison oak is all over Marin County.

Camera left – so green, so shiny, huh?
