Bike lanes unveiled in San Francisco

Getting around San Francisco on a bike just got a lot easier.

On Tuesday, the city unveiled the first section of bike lanes opened since a judge lifted a court-imposed injunction against the city's bicycle plan two weeks ago.

The injunction stalled the project for four years. The new lanes run along both directions of North Point Street near Fisherman's Wharf.

"This is an incredibly important connection between for people coming from the Embarcadero and downtown, going out to the Marina and the Golden Gate Bridge. We haven't had a good path through Fisherman's Wharf and now we do," Renee Rivera from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition said.

The lanes that opened are the first of some 20 miles of bike lanes that will open over the next year.
