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:

00:42:00 Begin oppositon commentary
01:00:00 Mary Miles- Attorney for the injunction threatening an appeal to the EIR. boo.
01:05:56 Begin support commentary- Adrienne Johnson and family!
01:17:50 Nik Kaestner- Director of Sustainability SFUSD!
02:54:15 Rachel Kraai- SF Bike Coalition and TALC!
03:08:15 Phil Horn- A communist and an anarchist among many other things. well spoken, phil.
03:21:16 Herbert Whiner- Pedestrian
03:25:30 Michael Holquist- Final public comment and he wraps it all up so eloquently.


  1. Hey there!

    Where did you find the link to the video? I'm having a hard time trying to find a link to the audio podcast. have you seen it?

    I could use it for my podacst.

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Jon, Not sure about audio recordings but you can see all the board, commission, public etc meetings on the SFGTV archives (and usually live stream too.)
    A little search here will probably help with your podcasting. The hearing was amazing! Good luck and if you can't figure it out, you might try calling 311 for help.

  3. Got it!

    FYI, there is a podcast feed right there on the sfgtv page. Big files though- 320mg! A bit large and long (nearly five hours!)to be considered a podcast but a wonderful resource for those of us who want to cut it up for our own purposes.
