Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:

See that?

The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.

As per usual…

There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.

Just saying.

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

Here’s the link – it was dispensing free tickets as of 2:20 PM today. Registration with Ticketfly required.



I guess that whole deal about getting detained by the SFPD at Outside Lands 2015 got worked out…

Imagine you’d want to show up super early for this one.

Here’s how things looked a few days ago.

You know these days, it seems I’ll see something on Twitter one week and then it will appear as graffiti the next week…

Trumor: Apple to Introduce iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Replacements At Bill Graham Auditorium in Civic Center on Sept 9th

Monday, August 24th, 2015

All the deets:

“Apple is widely expected to reveal the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus at an event on September the 9th.”

People are complaining already.

“Who pays for the costs to staff the SFPD officers and for the SFPD vehicles that are used at this venue?  The private company organizing the event, or San Francisco taxpayers?”

Well, I’ll field this one. Apple will throw us a few bucks.

Anyway, I’ve never been wrong on a TRUMOR yet. We’ll see…

Exploring Alternatives to the Crowded, Problematic “The Wiggle” Bike Route – “RIDE OAK?” – Sure, or McAllister

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Here you go:

Due to police harassment on the SF Wiggle we have no choice but to ride Oak.”


Well, let’s see, there are LOTS of reasons to not ride the vaunted THE WIGGLE route and also, there are other options asides from OAK.

But let’s consider Oak now. Oh, here’s famous fixie-riding Andy on the left side of Oak, from all the way back in aught-seven.


And look, the dashed lines made a sort of bike lane on the left side – good times. (Unfortunately, this space for bikes is no longer there, due to subsequent restriping.)

Anywho, going straight on Oak instead of taking the Wiggle at Scott is nice because you’ve only got one sort of steep block. I see people take Oak all the time. Oak is good. Oak is fast. Oak is congested a lot of the time due to horrible horrible Octavia Boulevard (what was dreamed up by wealthy homeowners in Hayes Valley), so you’d spend some time weaving about, getting around drivers trying to get on the I-80 / the 101 superslabs, but that’s OK. I’ll add that Oak is for the adventurous, certainly.

So, Oak is far from being a ridiculous choice, a choice TO TEACH US ALL A LESSON about the dangers of the SFPD handing out citations. It’s a viable option.

Or what of Oak and Baker to Fulton to Divisadero to Mcallister to Market? This is THE UNWIGGLE with no wiggling at all betwixt Divis and Market. And look, you’ve defeated the rich people of HV who put a 105 foot wide BOULEVARD betwixt you and your destination, ’cause Octavia is but a nothingburger walking path / federal housing project parking lot on this route – it won’t slow you down at all.

Or Fulton? It’s a bit hillier than McAll and you’ve got big old City Hall in your way, but it’ll do.

Or Golden Gate? That works too.

Or Haight all the way to Fillmore, just to avoid the congested THE WIGGLE?

Notice that all these routes avoid “cycling” a bunch of people through the stop signs at WALLER and STEINER in the Lower Haight.

Those are some of your inbound routes.

As far as using Fell to go back home, well that’s CRAZY TOWN, that’s ill-advised. I rarely have seen that, in all my years.

IMO, the best way to get back is MCALLISTER


…of course, there are other non-THE WIGGLE choices as well.

But feel free to do whatever you want, commiserate with this knucklehead, who lacks self-awareness, as you both deal with $238 tickets from John Law.

Just saying…
