Sunday Streets in San Francisco
This weekend the city of San Francisco kicks off the first of its nine scheduled ciclovia events for 2010. They call their ciclovias “Sunday Streets” and one of their taglines is “No Sunday drivers. Guaranteed.” There’s a whole website with lots of specifics and plenty of excellent coverage at San Francisco Streetsblog. Streetsfilms has two excellent short documentary films showcasing past years’ Sunday Streets here1 and here2.
This Sunday March 14th 2010 features an approximately 3-mile street closure opening along the Embarcadero from Fisherman’s Wharf to UCSF Mission Bay. Sunday Streets ciclovias then move around to different locations throughout the city more-or-less monthly through October!
Anyone up for putting your bike on the Amtrak Coast Starlight for a little ciclo-tourism? If you happen to head up to San Francisco and walk or ride in their Sunday Streets, please post a comment here and tell us how it went.
(and if you’re in Los Angeles tomorrow – Saturday March 13th – check out a mini-ciclovia-type bike-art-celebration at East Hollywood ArtCycle!)
