Bicycle Retailer – 12/11/12
Suppliers imported 16.2 million bikes though October this year compared with 12.8 million bikes imported over the same period in 2011. Children’s bike categories are up 33 percent overall as retailers hope to get a bike under a lot of Christmas trees this holiday season.
SF Bike Coalition – 12/11/12
We are very pleased to report that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to deny the CEQA appeal that was filed against the Fell and Oak Street Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Project. This means that the project—which includes separated bikeways and significant pedestrian improvements—will continue to be installed.
