On June 26, 2009, the SFMTA Board unanimously voted to adopt the long delayed Bike Plan and gave the green light to 45 new bike lanes. This was the result of three years of intense SF Bicycle Coalition advocacy culminating with a very impressive show of grassroots support at the MTA meeting where over to hundred supporters showed up to speak.
The next step is to bring this to court and have the tree year long injunction lifted so that work can begin on doubling the number of bike lanes in the city.
Congratulations all around! Now that we're back on track let's start to think about what's next!
