The Urban School Expands All the Way to Oak Street – Here It Is, You Won’t be Able to Miss It

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

The house you see on the left used to be on the right Рthey moved it east a good 40 yards to make way.

Anyway, this location on busy, busy Oak will soon raise the profile of The Urban School…

Whistling-Blowing Park Ranger Harshes Owner of Unlicensed, Unleashed Dog in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Camera left shows the Ranger and camera right shows the errant dog owner.

I’ve never seen this:

Reader Notes:

I’m assuming the dog’s unlicensed, as the vast majority of canines aren’t licensed in Frisco and I imagine the rate for non leash owning dog owners is lower still.

Don’t know if any woo woo or wee wee came out or if it was picked up.

The owner and dog sauntered away, with no threat of getting cited, it appeared.

Anyway, I’ve never seen this…

Panhandle Bike Path: Aggressive Local Roadies vs. Bunched-Up, Lollygagging Tourists – A Bicycle Freeway or Promenade?

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

You know what’s odd? We have the ability to count cyclists (oh, I’m sorry, PEOPLE ON BIKES or PEOPLE WITH BIKES instead, to use the proper post-2015 “framing,” you know, to influence your opinion, you know, subconsciously) but not to how fast they’re speeding downhill on our Panhandle Bike Path.

Hey, what’s the speed limit on this path? Oh, no signs posted. Hey, how fast can a roadie get coming inbound on skinny high-PSI tires, downhill, and with the prevailing tailwind? IDK, 25 MPH pretty easily?

Anyway, here’s the group of slow slow tourists heading east. They didn’t have much respect for the lane lines, as you can see:

And these two guys passed them going the other way. One was obviously¬†irate. He was all, “USE YOUR HEADS, USE YOUR BRAINS!”

IDK, man. I get his point about the tourists, but I think his expectations of the Panhandle Bike Path are too high. IMO, we all need to look out for others…

Now That It’s March, You Can Assume That the Blooming Cherry Trees You See Are Not Actually Plum – Oh, Here’s One

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

The fake cherry trees of January are now a deep purple, ’cause they’re plum trees.

That means that the cherry trees you see these days are real cherry.

Another Run for SFFD Engine #21: The Aftermath of a Routine Bicycle Accident in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Friday, February 19th, 2016

I guess this is one of my issues, the width of the Fell Street bike path – I think it’s too narrow. It’s being used a lot more now than back when it was widened from 8 feet to 12 feet, IMO.

Anyway, this kind of thing happens all the time and it always seems to be E21 that turns up to haul people (and their bikes – it comes with you at no extra charge on your already quite hefty bill) away.

(Hey, who would get better medical attention after an accident – Princess Diana back in the 1990’s or a homeless person of the 94117 in 2016? It’s not even close.)

ASSIGNMENT DESK: Somebody ought to go on a ride-along with this crew and then write about it…
