    You got to ride on the Inaugural Day! How cool is that?!
    Unbelievable number of bicycles and cyclists — hope they had more than the 4 Garceaus pictured. 😉
    The only other places I’ve seen that many bicycles has been in photos of the USC Santa Barbara campus and the Netherlands.
    Reading the linked articles it appears keeping the bike lane is already under contention — lets hope cyclists and pedestrians prevail.
    Thanks for sharing the event along with the albeit foggy photos!

      I think the crowd of bicyclists proved substantially larger than anticipated. However, the future of the bike path is all set for a classic confrontation between cyclists and motorists. There’s no doubt the bridge is a traffic nightmare for cars during peak periods. I’ve been stuck on it myself in a car. But converting the bike path to a third westbound lane would almost certainly mean the new lane would simply back up as well, because there’s still nowhere for all the traffic to go when it reaches the end of the bridge. Even so, motorists usually end up winning these kinds of battles, so we need to enjoy the bike path while we can.

    Ich bin ein Radfahrer!!! Great event, love the comparison with the Berlin wall. An exciting day to ride the bridge. I would have been there, too!

    An inspiring day., bicycles manage to get a whole lane off the motorists. There’s a change in the wind (or fog)…Yay

    Great to see such a turn-out and hope you can all ‘mobilise’ to prevent the loss of your lane. Peak hour is the time cyclists need the most protection! Living out in a rural area, it’s hard to imagine that many cyclists all in one place at one time!
