Left: SF Bicycle Coalition committed significant energy to helping to create the City’s initial parklet on Divisadero Street which has been successful for local businesses and the community.
Right: We helped more children bike more often and more safely with our Safe Routes to School program, Bike to School Day, and other family events.

We are creating more open spaces so that San Francisco is an easier place to work, live, shop and play.
