Over the course of the past five years, the number of bike commuters in San Francisco has jumped 71%. The city aims to have 20% of commuters doing so by bike come 2020, according to the SFMTA’s Bicycle Count Report. To reach this goal, Bay Area Bike Share will launch this August with 700 bikes (350 on the Bay Area peninsula and 350 in San Francisco itself). That may seem like relatively few bikes, but the SF Municipal Transportation Agency estimates the city and surrounding neighborhoods could handle between 6,000 and 10,000 bikes and plans to best new bicycles add another 300 by early 2014.
