The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
This week I’m going personal and local for my Who Won the Week winner. Before moving to the East Bay in early 2020, my wife and I used to live about three blocks north of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. It was an easy walk to the park and to the main thoroughfare through the park, John F. Kennedy Drive (pictured in red, below). It runs from the east side of the park all the way west to the Pacific Ocean. We’d walk our dog there and would often ride our bikes across the park to the ocean beaches.
So this week’s Who Won the Week winner is the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, which, on Tuesday, in a 7-4 vote, backed legislation from the mayor that bans cars in perpetuity on 1.5 miles of JFK Drive. Since JFK Drive was temporarily closed to vehicles two years ago due to the pandemic, it has become a highly popular destination for walkers, runners, and bicyclists.
Even though we no longer live three blocks from Golden Gate Park, we can easily load our ebikes onto the bike rack of our electric car, drive across the Bay Bridge, and enjoy a vehicle-free day of cycling in Golden Gate Park and along the Pacific Ocean. Yay!
