Board President David Chiu Goes His Own Way – Giving a Mayoral Race “Closing Argument” This AM at City Hall

Friday, November 4th, 2011

[UPDATE: This thing will be ON regardless of today’s rainy weather. But it won’t be raining then anyway, pinky swear.]

[UPDATE II: See David’s remarks, after the jump.]

For whatever reason, District 3 Supervisor David Chiu is going his own way in the race for Mayor. These days, he’s taking steps to let you know he’s separating himself from the pack.

Fair enough.

So, maybe he missed yesterday’s event on the steps of City Hall, but he’ll have his own today. Seems as if it will be more like a rally…

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Celebrates New Bike Lanes – A Panhandle Victory Lap

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Well, we’re still waiting for the green paint to go down, but we got plenty of white paint on San Francisco city streets yesterday. It all has to do with the partial lifting of the Bicycle Plan injunction.

Anyway, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (ask them about Winterfest on December 6th) had an after-party near Duboce Park last night, and when they finished up, some of them decided to test out the new bike lanes in a racous after-hours ride.

As here, on Scott Street. See the new Wiggle Bike Route icon? That’s fresh paint. Click to expand:


Here’s Leah Shahum and Andy Thornley in the vanguard:


And here’s the caboose – a seven-person bike piloted by Director Dan Nguyen-Tan
