Here's the Story...

They say there's always a story behind the story. Take the blue bike lane on Bayshore, for instance. Did you know that:
  • multiple State grants were awarded for the design and construction of the bike lane, the first of which staff worked on back in 2005?
  • the bike lane was created out of 3 alternatives made by transportation consultants, Fehr and Peers, in conjunction with a working group which consisted of the City, the Brisbane Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, Bicycle Solutions, the City of South San Francisco, and other local biking organizations, such as Genentech employees that take Bayshore to bike to work?
  • you canNOT make any lane changes right after exiting Bayshore from 101 going northbound (crossing over double white lanes warrants a citation) make sure you wait until you reach the Brisbane city limits sign to do so!

  • the Ride-A-Way bike lane coating from Integrated Paving Concepts, Inc. is a highly specialized coating with minimal water absorption and increased friction properties, making it skid and slip resistant and able to retain its original color.

  • the bike lane has been blogged about already? Check this out, from
