BAD TO THE BONE: The Banana-Seated, Electrified, Chopper BIkes of Frisco – A Schwinn Stingray on SteroidsThursday, October 15th, 2015
Out for a cruise on the Golden Gate Park Panhandle bike path:

A Tad Serious for the Panhandle Bike Path, Non? Is This a Sport or Just a Way to Get Around? – Both?Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015
IDK, how fast do you need to pedal on this downhill stretch of the Panhandle Multi-Use Trail what with the stiff prevailing tailwind and the super-light bike and the super-skinny tires?
I’ll tell you, you don’t need to pedal at all, from Stanyan to the fucking DMV (and Beyond, if the traffic signals work in your favor) – just really pump up your tires and try it sometime.
I’ll tell you, you know who else mixes up sport with transpo? The good bulk* of your BMW drivers, who cause more than their fair share of problems on our roads, despite having better-than-average reflexes and whatnot.
A good portion of your BMW car drivers need to slow the fuck down, and certain other people, perhaps you, see above, might need to as well.
That’s my point.

If You Have a Motorcycle, Feel Free to Illegally Cut Through the Golden Gate Park Panhandle, Like ThisTuesday, September 22nd, 2015
Getting your motorcycle from south of the Panhandle to north could take you something on the order of two to five minutes, depending, assuming you’re not already on Masonic or something.
But cutting through on the north-south walking paths, well that’s easy as pie, ‘specially when the lights sync up nicely.
As here, where Bro didn’t even have to stop for traffic.
Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:
The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.
There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.
Here are the Brand-New Stencils on the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Walking Path: “NO SKATING, NO BICYCLES”Wednesday, August 12th, 2015
One day somebody laid down the black background and then later on somebody put in the white lettering, perhaps on Monday or Tuesday:
I guess they wanted to notify people at each and every intersection.
Special Bonus: Kings Things:
– RPD says the Golden Gate Park Panhandle isn’t in Golden Gate Park. I disagree. Like, is the Florida Panhandle in Florida? Oh yes it is. But I suppose we could make a 51st state by cutting Florida into two states, one called Panhandle and the rest called Florida, but that would be kind of stupid. Anyway, that’s what RPD has basically done, but, like I said, I disagree.
– And why is the surface of this path near Oak so decrepit? Because that’s the way RPD likes it. Rec and Park could put in a new path now and then get working on their long-promised irrigation project later, but it don’t want to. Also, aren’t we in a drought? Why not let’s forget the irrigation and let the Panhandle go natural? Just asking.
