The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) publishes a must-read 14 page quarterly newsletter for everyone who wants to keep up to spin on a more livable and safer city for us all (especially those using alternative transportation).
The Summer 2009 issue of Tube Times is now out and available. For a good read, download here and check these articles:
- the Great Streets Project that hopes to transform city streets into havens of safe, attractive, centers of civic life;
- the SFBC Good Roads Campaign that seeks smooth, safer rides for cyclists;
- the wildly successful Sunday Streets program with 3 more car-free streets this summer;
- the winning design for new bike racks on Treasure Island
and really a whole lot more.
If you're a cyclist, take note: SFBC membership pays for itself. Get discounts all over town for bike repairs, bike rentals, and bike equipment and goods from other other city essentials like cafes, carshares, bakeries, and Rainbow Grocery. Take care of yourself and your bike and join today.
My bias: joining SFBC has been a great experience for me and I wrote the article above on Good Roads in this issue of Tube Times.
