San Francisco’s northeast waterfront has a long and dynamic history as an urban transportation corridor and threshold, from the Gold Rush and transcontinental railway to the age of ferries and freightliners, from an interstate freeway built and torn down to the at-grade multimodal roadway and open space network of the present. This bike tour will look at some of that history and the forces and politics that shaped the Embarcadero and preview the future of this remarkable roadway-space-place. This tour includes traveling by bicycle.
