San Francisco MTA plans to remove bike lanes on Market Street at Octavia. This is the infamous intersection where cyclists are commonly right hooked, although right turns are illegal here. The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition will hold a rally at this intersection Friday morning from 7:30 AM to 10 AM to protest the planned bike lane removal.
I'm told that traffic is horrible in the Dominican Republic and cyclists are the few and the brave. Ciclo Ciudad [in Spanish] in Santo Domingo, D.R. is working to change that. They seek to encourage the use of cycling as transportation to make the cities cleaner and more livable. Props to Kathleen for this.
