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…
Another Run for SFFD Engine #21: The Aftermath of a Routine Bicycle Accident in the Golden Gate Park PanhandleFriday, 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…
Both the Jogging and Bicycle Paths of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Should be Resurfaced and Widened ASAP – JMO – PhotoFriday, January 8th, 2016
Consarnit, back in the day our Panhandle Bike Path was just eight foot wide. But then people started using it more, so it got widened to 12 foot. We should up that 16 foot, why not.
And on the Oak side of the GGP Panhandle, we should certainly redo the crazy wavy surface ASAP, and widening, well again, why not?
Oh what’s that, you’re waiting to get the irrigation installed? All right, well that’s already been taking a long long time, and one questions why we’re irrigating in the first place, and walkers and joggers are falling down all the time, due to this outrageous neglect from SFGov.
Hey Look, Somebody’s Finally Working on Finally Completing the East Bay to Yerba Buena Island Bike PathTuesday, January 5th, 2016
You know, finally.
Perhaps the Bike Path To Nowhere will be sort of finished soon…
