The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed the Bicycle Access Bill that requires owners of commercial buildings in San Francisco to provide secure bike parking in their buildings. The law – the strongest piece of bicycle access legislation in the United States – was spearheaded by Supervisor John Avalos and championed by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and the Building Owners and Managers Association. Cycling in San Francisco rose by 71 percent over the past five years, according to a San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Bicycle Count Report. The law will make it easier for people to store their bikes once they reach their destinations.
