San Francisco is rolling on toward a more bike-friendly way of life.
Mayor Gavin Newsom is set to launch the City's first new bike lane project in this afternoon.
A court ruling on Friday ended a four-year legal battle over the City's plans to make streets safer for cyclists. The decision lifts a 2006 court ban after a man claimed the plan wasn't environmentally-sound for drivers.
San Francisco can now move forward on 35 bike projects, which would almost double the number of bike lane miles in the city to 80. Some of the projects that have been in waiting include lanes on Townsend, Fifth and North Point streets.
Overall, the City will gain 34 miles of bike lanes with the improvement project.
