Bicycle Safety Operation Conducted

Golden Gate National Recreation Area

National Park News

In order to improve safety for the thousands of annual users of park roads in the Marin Headlands, the park conducted a bicycle safety education initiative entitled “Operation Safe Cycle” on the afternoon of Saturday, September 15th.  The operation focused on the popular roadways within Marin Headlands where serious accident are all too common, particularly Conzelman, Bunker and McCullough Roads. Bicycle accidents in the Marin Headlands are the most common cause of serious injury to park visitors in the entire 80,000-acre park. Rangers educated bicyclists and motorists about the rules of the road and how to prevent the conflicts between bikes and cars that frequently occur on the roads in the Headlands.  Rangers made over 300 vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle contacts for infractions ranging from speeding to failing to yield to a pedestrian/bicyclist. They also wrote five citations for speeding and conducted 26 visitor assists.  The safety initiative will continue in the future in partnership with local agencies.
