This Sunday, March 20, from 11am – 4am, the first Sunday Streets of the year will kick off. A city-sponsored block-party, the event closes down a “portion of a neighborhood’s streets to automobile traffic, and opens them to pedestrians, bicyclists, and activities”, in this case the Embarcadero from Fisherman’s Wharf pass AT&T Park to Mission Bay.
More and more people are biking to work, using the bike lanes and asking for more access. Will there be more biking options as a means of transportation going forward? I’d always assumed that Market Street would be the first to get the full treatment, where bikes, walkers and Muni own the street. Few, if any, cars allowed!
