Golden Gate Park's JFK Drive Separated Bikeway Project (Have You Noticed The Chaos?)
Have you made a trip into Golden Gate Park recently (maybe to go to the De Young Museum or Academy of Sciences), and wondered what the hell is going on with some cars parked on the curb, some parked (what would appear to be) in the middle of the road, bikes zipping by in between the cars and curb, and a general mess of people trying to figure out what to do on John F.

Score one for San Francisco!
