Mar: Thanks Hellman, but bike parking needed

By most accounts, last weekend’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass was a hit, as usual.

Supervisor Eric Mar praised the event, but also found something “appalling” as well.

“One incident and visible incident that concerned me quite a bit was the lack of bicycle parking and how people will put their bicycles on top of trees. It was just appalling to see so much of that,” Mar said. “But I think it could be resolved with much more bicycle parking.”

Despite these “appalling” sights, Mar said: “I just wanted to first thank Warren Hellman and the organizers of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival this weekend. My daughter and I really enjoyed it on Saturday.

“I especially liked hanging out with supervisor Mirkarimi and his family on Sunday as well. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful weekend.”
