Leah Shahum of the San Francisco Bike Coalition on Air Quality, City Bike Lanes and Rider Safety

Amazing things have been happening on the streets of San Francisco over the past decade to transform the City to a safer and more friendly place for bicyclists. A network of bike lanes now riddle the streets of San Francisco and according to recent statistics there are 71% more riders on the streets now than there were in 2007. All this means less cars on the streets resulting in better overall air quality.

In this podcast, we speak with the executive director of the San Francisco Bike Coalition, Leah Shahum. The SFBC has over 12,000 members and has been instrumental, through it's various programs and advocacy programs, in helping to bring about this change.
