Make Room For Bikes

New, 6 comments

At Tuesday's hearing, the Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance requiring commercial building owners in the city to accommodate bicyclists in their buildings. Put forward by Sup. Avalos, the new legislation allows tenants to bring bicycles into a building or require building owners to provide secure bike parking nearby. Owners can potential ask for total exceptions to the ordinance if a building's elevators can't handle bikes or if there is secure off-street parking or indoor, no-cost parking within three blocks of the building. Count this as a major win for bike advocates. [SF Appeal, photo via SF Bicycle Coalition]
