Sunday Streets

We are stoked to see the strong push for more urban cycling, commuting, grocery-getting and safer, friendlier streets. We have San Francisco Sunday Streets going on a once a month for the whole spring and summer, with one in the Mission this Sunday. This is a program that was first developed in Bogota, Colombia and involves opening up some streets to just non-auto traffic, so that bikes, skates and walkers can all use the roadway and explore new areas from a different perspective. Similar programs are in place all around the world, and we encourage everyone to speak with their local government and advocacy organizations to get a program in your neighborhood. A couple of us will definitely be rolling through come Sunday!
