Bike rentals to begin in five San Francisco parks 

A bike-renting operation in San Francisco parks will begin in five locations after the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Tuesday a five-year lease, with one three-year option, with ParkWide Activities, LCC.

The rental concessions will be stationed at two locations in Golden Gate Park -- the  Bandshell and JFK Drive at Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive -- Marina Green, Justin Herman Plaza and Union Square Plaza.

In addition to renting bikes, the company can sell items like bottle water and t-shirts. Each site will have a rental kiosk.

Under the deal, the Recreation and Park Department will receive at least $703, 966 for the first five years.

The deal is not the big bike-sharing vision Mayor Gavin Newsom once had for The City. That has yet to materialize.
