City officials hold another ceremony celebrating bike plan

Since a lengthy injunction against bike-related improvements in San Francisco was partially lifted in November and completely lifted in August, The City has had no shortage of ceremonies celebrating the end of the ban.

That triumphant spirit continued Tuesday, when the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which oversees bike management in The City, unveiled the first set of 20-planned bike lanes.

The new bike-only pathways were opened on North Point Street and extend for a mile, connecting The Embarcadero to Van Ness Avenue. The 20 new cycling lanes, part of The City’s expansive Bike Plan, are expected to be completed by the summer of 2011.
