The Sinful Drivers of the Western Addition: Always on a Sunday, a Sunday, a Sunday, ‘Cause that’s My Day to Park

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Chuck Manson wouldn’t have double-parked like this, ’cause SFGov would have taken away his car tout de suite:

But somehow, unwritten but longstanding SFMTA policy gives these Christians a pass…

(Oh, and Saturdays too – it’s your option. Hey, why not the whole weekend?)

Rec and Park Posts Signage for a Very Short Mountain Bike Singletrack Trail Atop Twin Peaks

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Now what _I’d_ call this trail is a dirt sidewalk on the north side of Twin Peaks Boulevard what takes you from Twin Peaks Reservoir to Christmas Tree Point Road.

Anyway, here’s what RPD is doing these days. This is relatively new, these Jersey barriers connecting the trail to Eureka Peak. Note the post on the right:

This is new, right?

Note that it allows bike riding.

Now we’re looking east. The trail is on the other side of the guardrail:

This trail will take you to the reservoir and/or Mount Sutro / Midtown Terrace. I’m calling it singletrack ’cause it’s kind of narrow. And of course it’s shared with hikers.

This is noteworthy since singletrack is rare in SF / the bay area.

It’s not much of a trail for bikes, but it’s a trail anyway…

And, like I said before, I am surprised that this is allowed as a daily thing (weather permitting):

Surprising that Flying Under the Golden Gate Bridge is Allowed by the FAA, in This Day and Age

This is how it goes, every day, weather permitting, under our Golden Gate Bridge:

You know, like this:

Or if there’s too much fog up high, I guess they’ll go under from west to east, thusly:

It’s hard to tell, but the pilot is staying in the clear and just under a lot of fog

And then off to wherever:

To repeat, it’s Surprising that Flying Under the Golden Gate Bridge is Allowed by the FAA, in This Day and Age.

You know, safety and whatnot.

A Rational Approach from Sacramento County: “BIKES USE SIDEWALK” – SF Could Allow This in Some Places RIght Now

Like on Masonic Avenue, for instance:

Some other places too.

California allows us to make these calls on a case by case basis…
