Streetfilms: SFPD Chief Bikes With Cycling Advocates

Streetfilms just keeps cranking out excellent videos. This one features San Francisco Chief of Police George Gascon on a bike ride with representatives from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.

I couldn’t help but notice that the Chief referred to bicycling as a “sport”. While this was a little disappointing, it was a major step that he came out and spent the time to meet with advocates. His comments on the need for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians to co-exist were right on and quite encouraging. I also appreciated the fact that he acknowledged the need to protect bicyclists, an indication that he understands the vulnerabilities bicyclists sometimes face when sharing the road with automobiles.
