Last time I picked Starbucks on Balboa Is for the meeting; it was a great spot to observe cyclists and pedestrians. Balboa has such a great vibe; how much of its appeal can be attributed to the fact that cars are crawling at 10 mph or less?
I asked Mayor Pro Tem Nancy Gardner as she walked by, “maybe because it’s only 2 blocks long?”. Maybe, but I like that you can step off the curb at any spot and not risk getting run over.
Come experience this pedestrian Nirvana and meet local bike advocates as we discuss safety improvements to present to the Bike Safety Committee.
Come by bike: 2pm Wednesday August 17th at Starbucks, Balboa Is.
