Park(ing) Day may be a look into the future

Friday may provide a glimpse into the future.

Bicycle riding us up in San Francisco 43 percent since 2006, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s May State of the Cycling report.

Now some bike activists are asking: Where’s our parking?

At the fourth annual Park(ing) Day on Friday, auto parking spaces will be transformed into parks.

A few of those car-less spaces will highlight an innovation called “on street bike parking,” part of The City’s recently-approved 2009 bike plan.  The bike parking turns a single car parking space into a dozen bike parking spaces.

The bike parking will be found Friday in front of Bi-Rite market and Four Barrel Coffee, both in the Mission.

Before the temporary bike parking spaces can be made permanent, however, the injunction against The City’s bike plan needs to be lifted by a judge.
