To keep up with the festivities, I’ll try my best to keep posting “Bike to Work” related news through out the day.

In a soggy ceremony on the eve of the 11th annual Bike to Work Day, Michael Burns, head of the San Francisco Municipal Railway, and Bond Yee, executive director of the Department of Parking and Traffic cut a ribbon, unveiling a new bicycle rack outside of the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library.
“It’s a small project but very significant,” Yee said at the ceremony. “It’s like an infant learning to walk.”
