City Hall Maternity Ward – It’s a Bouncing Baby Bike Plan!

Friday, June 26th, 2009

How many officers and members of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition were on hand last night at Room 400 in City Hall to make sure the Planning Commission properly midwifed the birth of the San Francisco Bicycle Plan?                                                                                                                                     

Well here’s two, anyway – it’s SFBC Program Director Andy Thornley and Executive Director Leah Shahum:

NB: “Litigant” in the previous link above  is a code word that means Robert “Crazy Rob” Anderson of District Five Diary and/or his Citizens for Adequate Review (CAR). As seen in the Wall Street Journal:

Wade Crowfoot Drives a Hybrid

Wednesday, March 12th, 2008

San Francisco’s new Director of Climate Protection Initiatives was recently seen getting around using his hybrid. Not a hybrid gas/electric car, but a hybrid city bike. It’s not quite a road bike and it’s not quite a mountain bike. This kind of bicycle can be quite useful in San Francisco. Good for him.

China has geared up to produce inexpensive, high quality, lightweight, rust-free aluminum bike frames by the millions. Good for us.

Anyway, local fixture Bill Wilson captured the moment here.
