About the Radio Report
San Francisco's got lofty plans to improve safety and convenience for cyclists. And with gas prices rising, parking a headache, and a desire to reduce their carbon footprint, more and more San Franciscans are cycling in the city to work and to do errands. Cycling rose 15% between 2006 and 2007, and injuries from bicycle collisions are down over a 10-year period, according to municipal studies. But the city's been spinning its wheels to increase bike lanes because a 2006 injunction has barred their installation. And it's still an uphill climb, even here where environmental consciousness is high, to convince people to cut their car use.
Don't miss our KQED-FM radio story at our QUEST web site:
QUEST follows a recent convert as they negotiate the treacherous streets of S.F., guided by a member of the city's bicycle coalition. We'll add up the gas and carbon emissions they are saving and find out what has prevented would be riders from commuting on bike? We'll talk with city traffic managers and find out what the most bike friendly cities are doing. Marjorie Sun reports.
