Cyclists miffed that the Golden Gate Bridge district didn’t reach out to them before proposing a bike speed limit on the span will get a chance to offer their feedback at a public hearing next month.
The bridge district, citing safety concerns, has recommended a 10 mph speed limit for cyclists, with a $100 fine for violators of the new rules. Cyclists, not shockingly, are upset at the proposal.
On May 19, the bridge district will hold two separate public hearings to gather feedback on the speed limit proposal. The first meeting will run from 6 to 8 a.m. (presumably for all the bike commuters), and the second hearing will last from 3 to 5 p.m. The morning meeting will take place at the east sidewalk vista, while the afternoon meeting will take place at the district’s administrative office at the southern base of the bridge.
