SF Bike Plan is Approved!

Watch the MTA hearing that resulted in the passage of the Bike Plan today! This is really exciting- see all your friends, neighbors, local leaders, and people from all bikes of life speaking up for the bike plan. Transit first is happening. Think of all the cars off the road because the city is safer to cycle. Happy Day! Some highlights:

This sounded really exciting until I realized that just because the bay bridge will be closed, doesn't mean it'll be open to non-car traffic. no fun for me.
