Just asking, Bro.
What’s the speed limit on the Panhandle bike path? What should it be?
How fast do you think you can go heading west downhill on this bike path, with you out of the saddle, on your expensive lightweight bike, with skinny high-pressure tires, with your muscular thighs, with a strong tailwind? Bro, you’re going faster than anyone – what’s the point? You’re at the 99th percentile, or 99.9th, something like that, right?
By this point, Bro wasn’t pedaling no mo, ’cause he prolly could see that traffic on Masonic was going to slow his progress anyway. But he wasn’t racing for a light, he was racing along for no apparent reason. Strava, perhaps?
Realize that this path passes over what functions as the sidewalks of Cole, Clayton, Ashbury, etc.
Should SFGov post speed limit signs? Mmmm…
Hey, you know what’s funny? Some people want, effectively, to kick peds off this Panhandle multi-use trail. “Go use the pedestrian path on the south side of the Panhandle [near Oak]” they say.
Is that the right way to look at things?
I think not.
Anyway, that’s the ‘sperpective of somebody who uses bikes to get around, as opposed to using bikes to race around…
