I believe the SF Urban Riders proposal for repurposing a portion of McLaren Park for a bicycle skills park has great potential. San Francisco has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as one of the nation’s most bicycle-friendly cities, but we lack bicycle recreational facilities that some of our peer cities have. San Francisco has a growing off-road cycling community – many of whom must use motor vehicles to access quality off-road cycling opportunities because few such facilities exist wihin San Francisco. A bicycle skills park would be a great asset to our youth by providing a safe space for exercise and an opportunity to improve skills that can be applied on the many great trails in the Bay Area and beyond.
