…eliminate this…

…and this?

Well, not actually because this particular car vs. bike from last year happened to be the impatient cyclist’s fault, because he went across against a red, because bike riders don’t have as much time to cross as they used to, owing to the newish dedicated cyclist light Oh well.

Anyway, I would have said that Santa installed all the new hardware, but I was beaten to the punch by Dale Danley / Panhandle Park Stewards, who naively wonder why the Panhandle Bandshell went away despite the fact that the “partners” of PPS are the same people who made the harmless bandshell go away.

(So I don’t know, I’ll consider the Panhandle Park Stewards ranking someplace north of that horribly corrupt Willie Brown S.L.U.G. vehicle for the while. Enjoy your “partnership” with the corrupt RPD, and the NIMBYed-up NoPNA, and the millionaires’ kid’s school as you garden, Deutsches Jungvolk und Bund Deutscher Mädel.)

Anyway, you can look forward to the flashing lights of traffic cams when errant drivers err at Fell and Masonic. (UCSF shuttle van drivers beware, beware!)

Now, take this carcass into a bike shop and they’ll start talking about Chuck the Wheelbuilder and how great he is and then they’ll quote you a price that exceeds what you paid for the bike in the first place.

Oh well.

A Serious Car vs. Bike Accident at the Infamous Intersection of Fell and Masonic

Friday, May 14th, 2010

[BIKE NOPA has an update. The Examiner has a report indicating the cyclist has only “minor injuries.”  Could it be that the car got it worse than the guy on the bike?]

A small Ford Focus ZXW station wagon collided with a cyclist at the intersection of Fell and Masonic this afternoon.

This red Cannondale fixie had its fork torn in two.

Pee-Wee Herman’s Bike Rides Again, Stripped Down on Valencia Street

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

Pee-Wee Herman’s rather baroque red bicycle, stripped down to its essence, would look something like this Schwinn beach cruiser avec springer fork seen on Valencia. Click to expand:

Whitewalls, gratuitous spokes, kickstand and chrome, chrome, chrome.

That’s quite a look.
