More curbside parking provided instead of a safe harbor for children to get to and from school. Photo: Old Knotty Buoy
wow looking at these photos makes me glad I am here instead of still in San Diego. (moved back to the East Bay recently, for those who haven’t been following closely.)
feels so much safer cycling here in Oakland, Berkeley, and SF even if I extremely nearly got doored once, and even though some roads in Oakland are badly in need of repairing/repaving.
sharrows are definitely a cop-out to citizens who deserve a choice in transportation modes. taking the lane on a one-lane each way road feels dangerous, and is highly likely to get drivers made and honk at you. San Diego is so conservative. just f—ing kill some parking spots to make separated bike lanes already! instead of another human life every month!
I think I’ve only ever ridden that street (Voltaire and/or Nimitz) with Critical Mass or AWLF at night.
we need safer streets for kids! for our future! stop the kindermoord!
but yes, yay, at least another councilmember (after Todd Gloria) is getting to know what’s it’s like to cycling in San Diego.
Both Nicole and others were very appreciative of Councilmember Kevin Faulconer and representative Michael Patton taking the time out of their busy schedule to explore their district in a fun way to learn more about the potential that OB had. Nicole stated that the ride was a perfect opportunity for the Councilmember to learn about the issues faced by riders who ride on Voltaire and Nimitz — two main thoroughfares in Ocean Beach.
