Just saw these guys installing six (6) brand new bike racks on Valencia right in front of Boogaloos at 22nd Street. Now the hungover masses who mob the popular brunch spot every weekend will have ample room for their fixies. Combine this with the 3-spot Parklet debuting this Friday in front of Revolution Cafe, stoner-fave Escape from New York Pizza, and Lolo’s; and it looks like 22nd street is slowly becoming the new cyclo-hipster hub of the Mission. Take that Divisadero!
Silly Side Story: As I was taking this photo, some burner-type zoomed past me on his bike yelling, “Welcome to San Francisco! What are you, from Kentucky or something? Go home tourist!” Confused, I mounted my bike (which I had leaned against the stop light), caught up to him at around 21st street, and asked him what the problem seemed to be. He tentatively replied, “Well, you were taking pictures . . . of the city.” Good one buddy.
UPDATE!!! It looks like they’re putting these up all over Valencia in the spots where the Muni-26 bus stops used to be (good riddance). I spotted another one by Herbivore, as well as this one in front of Freewheel:
