Infamous “MISSING (NOT STOLEN)” Trials Bike Found, Sort Of – On Top of a Saab in the Western Addition

Monday, June 6th, 2016

You wouldn’t believe how many light post signs that could be seen all over town last month, advertising this bike.

And look, here it is, east of the Northeast of the Panhandle Area (NoPA) – aka our Western Addition. Seen coming…

Not sure what all this means…

Word on the Street: “MISSING (NOT STOLEN) – CASH REWARD” – This Sign is All Over The Place

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

If I had stolen this bike, seeing all these signs everywhere just might be enough to motivate me to collect my reward.

You know back in the day a plain “NO RADIO” sign sufficed. Those were simpler times…

What Happens When You Park Your Bike in Mayor Ed Lee’s San Francisco – His Legacy Parked on the Sidewalk

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

Why on Earth would he go to Brazil to give tips on the already-failed 2016 Summer Olympics, or to Panama to look at a canal – I mean, how is that kind of stuff official business?

Anyway, the best parts of your bike are now gone, so all that’s left to do is prop the carcass up on a pole for somebody to eventually carry it off…

This is What It’s Like to Operate a Bike in Mayor Ed Lee’s San Francisco

Friday, March 25th, 2016

It’s exactly like this:

But Ed Lee has a plan for the West Coast Capital of Bike Theft.

Here it is, going to Brasil to lecture about how to lose billions on the Olympics? Well, maybe not, but Flying South To Rio must be more fun than doing the job six people appointed this longtime SFGov bureaucrat to do…

Vandalized Bike Racks in Front of a WalMart Store

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Wow, I guess WalMart put these racks in, in Sacramento County, so it could say that it put some racks in?

People used these deficient racks the wrong way, so they lost their bikes, oh well…

SFCTA Confirms Public Comment Cards for Geary BRT Stolen – But Some Returned “Anonymously” – Comment Deadline Extended

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Here’s the latest on this issue, from the SFCTA, below.

If our SFCTA wanted to handle this issue with the least possible effort, then I give it an A+, or a passing grade if we’re grading pass/fail. Another approach would have been to notice another meeting and yada yada.

This project has been on the radar for a long, long time, but I never really paid attention to it until the pedestrian bridges issue came up. If the SFCTA were a person and we took what it said seriously, I’d tell you that our SFCTA is in deep denial on this bridges issue.

(And how much would a BART spur under Geary end up costing, like a billion dollars a mile, like our already-failed Central Subway? Is something like this unreachable pie in the sky? IDK.)

Anyway, here it is:

“To the Participants at the Geary Bus Rapid Transit Project’s November 5, 2015, public comment meeting:
Thank you very much for the time you spent coming to the meeting to learn about the project and for submitting comments on the Draft Environmental Document. Your input is important and appreciated.
