This dude reminded me of…

…this gal, who certainly enjoyed kicking at the parked cars what “invaded” Golden Gate Park on a so-called Healthy Saturday:

Anyway, what Geary needs is to lose its useless median strip.

Prediction: Low-Rise Pants are Now as Low as They Will Ever Be

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

As is the case with fashionably large sunglasses, there comes a limit with how far you can go. The low-rise revival that started in 2001 has now run its course. Ergo, normal pants should be coming back.

This cyclist on JFK Drive in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park attracted attention by kicking at (not actually kicking, apparently) parked cars, perhaps in frustration over seeing a Subaru quasi SUV parked on a stretch of road that some drafts of Healthy Saturdays would have made car-free. It was the start of the 2008 season of Healthy Saturdaies yesterday, after all.

Regardless of what you’re doing, it seems regular pants would be a more comfortable option.

Regular pants tomorrow, regular pants today, regular pants forever!

“Healthy Saturdays” Returns – No Cars in Part of Golden Gate Park

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

Yesterday marked the start of the second season of car-free Saturdays in Golden Gate park. It’s just a small part of JFK Drive – compare the difference with car-free Sundays.

Most drivers heading west aren’t allowed to turn left, so it looks like a U-turn is the only option.

The underused “Accessible Tram” and the quasi-ban on deliveries to the nearby deYoung museum are both results of le Grand compromis de 2007, which sets in stone the rules for Healthy Saturdays for the next five years at least.

Happy cycling.
