In 1989, a big earthquake collapsed a freeway overpass in San Francisco, and many years later, voters decided not to rebuild the freeway overpass and have a boulevard installed in its place. Although the Market/Octavia intersection turned into a sometimes dangerous spot for cyclists, it's still nicer than riding in the shadow of a freeway. Here are a few cyclists taking a break at that very intersection.

And here's a fashionable lady in a black mini, black tights and black boots waiting for the light to change at Market and Franklin:
Thanks to the SFBC for trying to make Market/Octavia a safer intersection for us.
